Hi:  My dogs ears are standing fine, but alot of the time (but not all the time) they lean in toward the middle of her head so she looks like a "cone head"  Should she be rewrapped to correct?  Help and Thanks so much.

pictures would be helpful if you could post some. 

I will tell you that ears that are touching in the middle often indicate that there is a pocket forming on the inside bottom of the ear.  To fix it you need to make sure that you stretch the ear up on the post so that it is not sagging. With a significant pocket, you need corrective posting that will push the pocket out.  I know that there may be some old posts on Doberman Talk that give picture examples and how to correctively post ears to get rid of the pockets.
