The best way to clean your dog’s ears is you have to use a gentle pet ear cleaner, for example, paws ear cleaner. I will tell you that how you should clean your dog’s ear.

First of all, place the nozzle all the way down the ear canal.You know dogs have long ear canals so that you will not be at risk of puncturing the ear drum. If you do not put it down far enough, you won’t get the drops all the way down the canal.

Then you have squirted some of the cleaners into your dog’s ears.You should massage the area below and slightly in front of the ear canal fairly firmly.Then you should stand back.It is likely that your dog will shake his head and cover you with cleaner mixed with waxy ear gunk.

It is important to note that you have to remember. Nowadays many veterinary dermatologists are now recommending that you should not pluck the hair from your dog’s ears. There are also exceptions to this rule. However, it is best to check with your vet what is right for your dog or not.I think ear plucking can lead to irritation of the dog’s ear canals that may make ear infections more likely.
Hope you find your answer.
Thank you

Follow the following steps to clean your dog’s ears:
1. Consult a vet and get an ear cleaning solution for your dog. do not use a cotton swab as you may end up hurting your dog’s ears.
2.  Always be fully prepared before starting the process. Keep everything yo need within arms reach.  Make sure to pamper your dog with a treat to associate the process with something positive.
3. First begin with cleaning the visible outer ear then gradually proceed towards cleaning the inner ear. A dog’s ear canal is L-shaped and cleaning it can be challenge so if you are a new pet parent do perform this task only under the supervision of a vet.
