I just added a pic in my gallery (can't just post on my phone) and was wondering if anyone has advise to help the tips of banes ears stop curling.  We think the "breeder" just had his tips taped together :(. He is standing straight and doesn't ever flop his ears but repeated weeks of training won't stop the curl. I have read some of you use breath rite strips but I'm concerned with them coming off and him eating them. He eats. EVERYTHING!!!!

Have you ever heard of mole foam by dr.scholls ? Or that method ? I hear it's really good. We are going to actually switch the backer rod size to a smaller one to get our boys tips stronger lol but in your case is try the mole foam method or the zip tie method 

Have you tried to tape the breath strip on ?

We haven't tried it yet. We have slowly came to like the curl a bit :). I have used moleskin tape on my self and it is pretty sticky.  Bane has been using the back taped foam to train his ears since we got him. A week on then sat and Sunday off depending how he is standing. He usually gets a bath and ears cleaned with plenty of dry time.

The breath strips would work but I would tape them on:)

if you use the breath rite strips, use some medical glue (eyelash glue works) and plan on replacing them about every day.
