It’s important that you check your dogs ears regularly especially if you notice that they smell or you notice your dog scratching them. He could have an ear infection which would require the attention of your veterinarian.

You should clean your dogs ears regularly. Your vet will supply you with the proper safe ear cleaner, You’ll want to keep some cotton balls close at hand. Clean your hands or wear gloves and treats are a must. Close your dog into a small room like the bathroom.  It’s a good idea to have a second person on hand especially if your dog begins to squirm.

Start by cleaning the outside of your dog’s ears and work your way in.  Wet the cotton ball with the cleaner and clean the outside  surface of the ear. Then wipe the inside surface of the ear flap Once that is clean, get a new cotton ball wet with the cleanser and clean the inside part stopping when you feel resistance. Pushing further than the dog wants you to go can cause damage. If you find that the cotton balls are dirty, it may be time to have your dog checked by your vet.

Remember, always give him lots of praise and treats.
