I could not agree more.  This is the Best....

When I lived in PA, my vet used to refer all GSD ear standing problems to
me....I used that on all comers, it always worked so long as it was follwed
through til the ears stood on their own.

People are always giving bad advice. ( present company accepted  (?)
....no, excepted!). The best you can do is to support them with  the  jumbo
Goodie
rollers, 3M weather stripping adhesive (I know, I know, you  all  have your
favorite "kinder" glues, but this works best), and is  also  kind....tape
the ears with sports tape after gluing, and tape them  so they stand
"outward",
to
the sides, sometimes even possible to  double tape a "bridge" with  a
popsicle tape between ears to keep them  apart. These inward facing ears are
always
caused
by a very strong  "pocket" in the inner corner of the ear,  where it meets
the
head. If  you can glue something in the pocket  to poke it out a little,
that will  help.  It can be corrected easily  when younger...Good luck.
Bring  it on, I'm ready. LOL  Syd

Good  advice, Syd!  Over the years, goodie foam rollers and 3M glue has
been the only thing that has worked for me.  If I see a potential  problem
with an ear, I start early, and (knock on wood) haven't had to use a  bridge
of tape to separate the ears.  It seems like the size and weight  of the
rollers let the pup "use" the ears which helps make them  stronger.....JMO

Count me in too! The rollers stay in longer with the Weatherstripping 
Adhesive, they are light weight allowing pups to work those ears and the
pups  are
not bothered by them. No muss, no fuss once they are in, and nature takes
its
course with the adhesive.  Used this method for decades with great  success
