The difference between cleaning our dogs' ears (putting liquid in) and them getting wet from swimming, is that from swimming it is just water, and the cleaner is medicated liquid that will a) dry out the canal and b) clean it.

My boy swims a LOT so I use the ear cleaner once a week, more if he is swimming daily like in the summer. We are also grain free. I do a more thorough cleaning of the ears about once a month, where I soak a cotton ball in the ear cleaner and have the dog's head in my lap and clean ONLY VISIBLE parts of the ear with a couple of the soaked balls. Then I clean the cracks with a q-tip soaked in cleaner, again ONLY visible parts, NEVER inside the canal. If you can not trust your dog to stay absolutely still do not do this.
