Read my previous article – an overview on how to post cropped ears that describes different ear posting methods.
I got this light ear posting method from my friend in Poland. Her puppy has a European show crop.
This method uses only tape to shape the ears. I like this method because it is very light to carry, and very flexible – it bends and pops back up, which makes it a lot easier for a dog.
You will need two people to post ears with this method, as it requires for a dog to remain still. Before connecting the ears together – shape them with hands, pushing on the ear pockets. Keep the ears upright, but slightly out (pointing sort of at 11 and 1 o’clock). If the ears too straight up – the ear pocket might sag.
I used this method a few times to give my puppy a break from stuffing his ears with tampons.

There are two alternative methods to tape crown method:
- Ear posting with tampons.
