Bianca has come into heat and I have tried everything to get her to wear the pants so that I don't have a mess to clean on my off-white carpet. Does anyone have any special trick that they have found to work for a stubborn dog?
What breed is Bianca? I also have a bitch named Bianca, she is a maltese; fortunately I have not had to make her wear a nappy as I had her spayed when she was 6 months on the dot.
I'm afraid I am out of ideas, I mean if she doesn't want to wear her nappies you really can't make her, maybe a change of knickers might do the trick, perhaps she has a fetish for the frilly ones. Only joking but I really don't know how you can force her to wear her nappies, just persist and she may get the hint that they have to stay on.
noscam..believe me...with 3 female shepherds i know and really dread the heat cycles...( and when your breeding them, spaying is not an option)my girls make considerable messes and now they seem to cycle close to the same time...SOOOOO the diapers do some good...if they leave them alone..but I just dont let mine in carpeted areas...I have gates and half the house main floor is tile...I make them stay there...I can never tell when the schnauzer is in heat..so...size does matter it seems..hang in there...it is only a temporary thing...this too will pass...
Go to your vet an ask for "ovaban". Its a birth control pill for dogs. The only problem is you have to start the pill on the 3rd day of the heat...I think you are probably already past that. It works well, I have used it on my females. Also I just saw a spray at the pet store called something like "no mate" or something like that that you spray on the females bottom and it deters the male or at least he cant smell her. I have not tried that one yet :) Good luck.
I have used ovaban with no problems. My female has had puppies since being on ovaban and the only difference was that she had a smaller litter 5 puppies instead of her usual 8 puppies. All were very healthy and so is she. So no problems here..
