Your puppy will need to be groomed a lot in his lifetime. Cleaning his ears early on will help him get used to this type of handling and help with your puppy’s ear health as well. Clean ears will keep bacteria and yeast from causing painful earaches and ear infections. When you are able to keep these conditions at bay, your pup will have healthy ears, better hearing, and his overall health will be improved. Your puppy’s ears are sensitive. You may have to work with your pup a bit to help him tolerate and get used to a good ear cleaning.
Your puppy is energetic and learning all about his new world. There are things he won’t like, such as touching his ears. You will need to help him get used to this touch by doing it a lot and rewarding him with a treat when you do. This reward-based training works for grooming as well as training.
Hear this now: treating your pup for cleaning his ears is the way to go, especially if his ears hang low.
