I actually use a thin lancet on jesse who is a beagle that have a long snout like your dog which means there is plenty of inner lip to test. Maybe the lance device setting may need to be a bit deeper . I have removed the plastic protector on my devices so the lance has direct contact . You could try a different lance device . The ear is a tough place to test and did not work out for jesse

there are videos on testing the inner lip . If you dog is accepting it may just take a bit of practice

You doing a great job
