Default How do you guys keep your poo's ears from...

getting into his/her dish while their eating or drinking... It seems their beautiful ears are always in the way!! We keep Bobbi's ears at normal length but would want to let the hair on them grow..

You need a snood! Here's a thread I started with pictures of one I made for Beau out of the sleeve of an old T-shirt.

My boy wears his snood when eating and he uses a water bottle.

I went to goodwill and got some old p.j.'s pants and then cut the bottoms off. I put them on to hold the ears back , like you would use a headband. It works great.

Cali's ears are quite long but they don't get into her food. I had never even thought about it until I saw this thread and then I started to wonder why. She eats a cooked homemade diet so it would certainly stick to her ears if they were dipping in. All I can think of is that I inadvertently hit upon the perfect width and depth of bowl that keeps her ears out. Maybe changing bowls would help?

PS: I just fed her and that is exactly what it is. Her face goes in the bowl and her ears dangle outside it. I don't know if it is the size of the bowl or if she holds her ears out when she eats. LOL

Question How do you get them to keep the snood on?

I have tried and tried with Rosie, but she won't keep one on. Of course it is also hard to get her to eat anything.

Sunny's ears are very long and unless he is chowing on a raw bone, the ears tend to stay out of the bowls, too. I am growing him out for the winter and the bigger issue are the bell bottoms when he is chewing a raw bone, etc.

You can try banding the ear fringe is they don't like the snood.
My Baldr doesn't care for his snood (atlho he doesn't mind his Happy Hoody), he has long fringe, so I keep them banded.... just remember to be careful not to band the ear tips, always put a comb thru the hair before you put the band in to make sure you don't get any ear leather.
