Can you tape dobes ears without cropping and does it work well?

Looking at my dogs very large ears I would hazard a no at that :)

Even if it were possible, I would not recommend it. They would look like a member of the rabbit family. Those ears are long, very long. Those who show Dobes and have the show cut rather than the medium cut can tell how difficult it is to get the ears to stand with the extra length of the show cut. The medium cut can take 4-6 weeks of posting normally and the extra long cut maybe 50% longer. If you started when the pups ears were right to crop (10-12 weeks) and just did a posting I would estimate you would be posting for 3 months or so, and then I don't think you would be successful.

If you are not going to crop (for what ever reason) just leave them be.
