Corgi’s is a licensed family-owned breeding company dedicated to breeding happy and healthy dogs. Our Corgi’s are cared for on our farm in southeast Kansas. Corgi pups are born with large floppy ears that fold down. As they mature, their ears will begin to rise and stand upright. Growing puppies may need a little help with getting their ears to raise, which is why many pups have to have their ears taped. Taping also helps to increase circulation through the ears. The AKC states that up righted ears for Corgis is the breed standard. It can take anywhere from 8-24 weeks for Corgis to have fully developed upright ears.

Here is how to tape Corgi ears:

Be sure to use masking tape to avoid adhesive getting stuck to your Corgi’s fur or potentially hurting their ears.Using 2-inch wide masking tape, lift your Corgi’s ears and begin taping around the base of their ear and slowly taping them upwards until the ear is standing completely upright. Make sure there are no folds in the ear while taping.

Repeat this on the second ear.

After taping both ears, you may want to reinforce the ears with the tape going across their ears. This is optional but can help ensure that the tape holds, and the ears remain upright. Simply take a longer piece of tape and put a band of tape in the front and back of their ears.

The tape can be left on for a week. After seven days, remove the tape and allow the ears to rest. If the ears are still drooping, you can repeat this process until they are standing upright.As the holiday season approaches, the leaves will begin falling off the trees, the sun sets earlier, and the chill of winter will start to set in. While you prepare by packing away your lighter clothing and bringing out thicker coats and traction boots- don’t forget your furry pal.The winter can have a significant impact on your corgi’s well-being, so it is important to take the necessary steps to ensure their safety and comfort throughout this season.
