BB...for me the panties for dogs have always worked really well. They have a few different types, but the kind I found to work the best (never had to buy another pair again) were from PetSmart...and have velcro so you can adjust according to the size of your dog. I've bought the elastic, snap, tie, around the neck, button kind and none of them worked...the velcro ones worked like a charm. Both of my girls had matching denim panties..it was so cute. All I would do, was put a regular pad right on it and put the panties on them. I would have to change the pad about 2 or 3 times a day. This probably won't keep your male dog away for much...I'm sure he could tear them off or even get through were the tail part is...so I don't have any suggestions for that..sorry. Hope that helped though, about the dog panties.
Get your dog fixed. You obviously are not prepared to start raising puppies.
The dog is too young, do you want to kill her? Find another hobby. --------------------------------------------------------------- ShadowDog

You are OBVIOUSLY not educated on breeding. Your dog should be two years old to have a safe delivery, period end of story. Also, why the heck would you want to breed a mutt? Get your poor dog fixed! ---------------------------------------------------------------
You're right Basset_Lover, I'm a big advocate for breeding as young and as often as possible. (?) You obviously have no idea how I feel about breeding, and nothing in my original post suggests recommending breeding at that age. My point was that even though it is obviously not the right thing to do to most, it may not be so obvious to all. The original OP is not the only one that is going to read the responses either. As for "snide", you must be feeling guilty. ShadowDog, the remark "why the heck would you want to breed a mutt?" is really uncalled for. Icy Hound, thank you for taking the time to explain some of the why's of breeding rather than jumping down a new members throat.
Yes infact the thought of breeding a 6 month old puppy generally doesn't cross you mind since the puppy is still a young puppy BUT this person did the right thing by asking rather than attempting it. I personally don't know much about dogs yet since I won't be getting my little boy for another week and a half BUT i certainly hope i don't get bashed on by the people here if i ask a question they think is dumb. I am sorry we are not all as knowledgable as the great ones. Give people a break.
Thanks DoGoneIt for helping answer my question as well. I recently bought her a pair that tie, fortunatly she has not been in heat yet so I have not had to try them out on her, but it is an hour to the closest pet store so I wanted to be prepared just in case.. That was all they had to choose from but if they do not work I'll just put my mother to work sewing dog panties lol until I find something that will, she can make about anything, pretty talanted lady. I am just not sure about the tail hole in these though, my Olive is bob tailed has practically no tail at all so don't know how that will work but guess will figure all that out when the time comes.
So now permit me to sound like a head case. What are the signs of a female going into heat. Our vet does not want to spay my poodle till 6 1/2 months. I am praying to god she does not come into season. But what am I looking for????????? I'm serious. I've never had a pup before. Let alone an unspayed female.
There are mild changes of mood that I notice in my females, normally more affectionate and sweet. I have a VERY reserved girl right now, so suddenly she starts wanting to cuddle about a month before hand.
Reallly thou, the frist signs are the vulva increasing in size slightly and darkening some. Bofore you know it, it turns into this fleshy beast that wobbles and protrudes from their backend, beckoning every male within miles with its lividness. Its horrible and scares me.
Basset_Lover You really have a way with words!! You are so full of great warm advice...*Sarcastic* Some people really need to understand that breeding is not to be taken lightly or foolishly, but I do believe there is a proper way to teach. There is no need to be so spiteful, and I am sure that you do not want to take your "Words Back" I can tell!! (A bit af friendly advice - you can give Responsible advice without being bitchy).

Have you lot ever thought that some people are new to having dogs.....I have found some of your comments very rude......do you say this to humans when they are pregnant!!!! Some people want your advice not you sarcasm.
