When a female is in heat, can a NEUTERED male still sense it? Well obviously he can... but, is it normal for him to whine and cry about it?
Jazzy came into heat yesterday. Riley's been licking her nonstop and trying to hump her.She will just attack him when he does that, then he will cry, whine, and make a high pitched bark.
It's not too bad, not like hes whining nonstop, but is it normal for him to be doing that?
And ya know, she picked the perfect time to come into heat. We just started a new agility class and its only her and 2 other spayed females (I'm wondering if she would be ok going though) and her agility match (was) this weekend. Guess we cant do that. Boo!
As Icy said I wouldn't let them... not only for physical health reasons, but I have found females who "think" they have been bred are far more likley to have false pregancies... which can be inconvinent to say the very least.
Wen my female is in heat my male makes sounds I never immagined would come from a dog. If I had to describe it reminds me when a bull elk bugles during the rut.
Yes a fixed male will still try to mount her and she will become receptive even if she is not at this point, but don't let it happen, keep them apart as if he was intact but you know you are safe if they do get together. As icy stated in her post the risk of introducing bacteria and an infection still exist.
My mothers friend has two papillons. One male neutered, one female. When the female goes into heat the male will hump her, then she will go on and start nesting and prepare to have babies but shes not pregnant. What a pain in the butt too.
Jasmine is doing pretty good. I see a few spots of blood on the floor here and there. I covered all the couches. She, and Riley, and have been good about keeping clean lol.
I can't remember what your setup is in the house, but be very careful about leaving the dogs together unsupervised for any length of time. I've heard of female dogs attacking even neutered males because their attentions were completely unwanted, not to mention horrible disasters involved with neutered males doing the deed and having problems wtihdrawing, ripped organs, etc...
If Riley is showing even the slightest bit of interest you should keep them 100% separate for their own safety. Jasmine may be turning him away now but in a week or so when she is officially 'receptive' you will have far more troubles.
lol you havent lived with Riley. He wont stay in a crate quietly unless we leave the house. We have the e-fence, but they usually come in and out as they please. I've been going out with Jasmine though and making her come inside when I do.
