Usually at bath time, about twice a month

I wipe out my kids ears a couple times a week with Foster&Smiths Ear Cleans Pads. Boo's ears are very long and heavy and they get dirty often, start to stink and he will scratch them like crazy if I don't. It started when he was about 3yo. Punkin's aren't as bad but I do it as part of their routine. But Lia being a pup you probably won't need to as often until she's older.
As a side note :D she is quite a cutie pie!!!!!

I look every week and only clean if they look grubby or waxy. I use Leo ear cleaner.

I check them every week.

India is the only one who needs her ears cleaned weekly, since she had a yeast infection. She had been on antibiotics several times for UTIs, which has affected her ears I think.

Chocolate's ears need to be cleaned every month or so.

Geordie's ears stay clean magically!! They have never been dirty. :)
