|For just basic cleaning, mix one part white vinegar with one part water, apply to a gauze pad or waschcloth and wipe the visible part of the ear. If there is a little bit of wax, you can add a bit of this solution to the ear, rub at the base of the ear and dry thouroughly with a dry cloth. DO NOT USE ALCOHOL, no matter what!
Since the GS has upright ears, he really shouldn't have much gunk in them. If you see a lot of wax, coffee ground type gunk or smell something unusual, take him to the vet before you clean anything. Dogs can have infections and occasionally a ruptured eardrum and self cleaning can do more harm than good.
