Ok I need some help my male lab has already had puppies with this female dog once. Now we would like to breed her again, she is ready and he will mount but instead of locking he gets off and he just wont lock! Help!
could it be that he is not entirely interested in her? maybe you could take her away from him and return her like a day later and it usually gets him interested enough in her...my breeder had good luck with this.
I agree with wandering, you may have to guide him

No he is hitting the hole but when he ties its not staying it just comes out. My female is ready and stands for him. I am lost he is a stud dog and has breed my female before. they get separated and everything? does anyone have more advice?
I understand what you mean. My stud had that happen to him several times but only with one imparticular female. There is simple fix, hold the male on her so he doesn't dismount. If he is making all the contact hes supposed to and simply can't hold a tie then hold him in place for a couple minutes lying across her back and if they still don't lock at least he was on the "inside" for an extended period of time to maybe get the job done. Repeat in 48 hours.
So, why are you breeding this dog? To make so extra cash, for fun, because he's there? You don't sound like you know much about the breeding process. Perhaps you should start there. What advice did your mentor offer?
Just a tip.. never breed the same two dogs twice, the female's body will most often reject the males sperm. Don't ask me why I never really understood, but thats what happend with my girl. Might wanna look into that.

That statement the way I understand what you are trying to say is simply not true.
Sorry, don't really know why, I had the same stud for my female three times the firsta time everything went smooth, the second time she had 7 pups where two of them died one was born defected and the second looked healthy on the outside. The third litter and last all were dead.
When we investigated what went wrong the vet asked if I had used the same male more then once. and that if I did that was probably the problem. They explained why but it was all greek to me. Something about the blood lines. Both dogs had been tested properly, I don't kow I could be wrong. It was anyhow her last litter so I never really read into it. But I can try to look it up or call my vet tomorrow to check again what it was about.

I wouldnt have repeated any breeding that produced a defective or deformed puppy anyway.
Sounds more like genetic issues and other issues with the dam. Repeat breeding s are not the cause of defects and death, there are underlying causes there, and the 2 should have not been repeated in a breeding once that second litter produced a defect.
I have heard from some LR breeders that labs have that problem a lot and that is why a lot of breeders do it by artificial insemination with either fresh or chilled semen, or frozen as well. I hope both dogs have hips, elbows and eyes tested and certified heathy........
Ok I dont breed for extra cash or for the fun! We breed AKC Dogs Labs for people to get a good dog for a good price. Not everyone wants to pay 800 dollars for a purebreed dog. Both of our dogs have great lines and healthy backgrounds. The male has Champion lines. We breed to let other people get good dogs. To respond to the comment about I might want to research... My family has breed Akc German Shepards and now labs we know all about the process and how to raise the pups. I have never heard of the not useung the same male we have always used one male on our dogs and more than once. Thanks for those who gave me advise. The person who said to hold the male on the female did your dog end up taking when you did that? Thanks
Well, I think you really should do more research....what do you mean by "good dogs"??? Aren't those in shelters any "good dogs"? Thay are, but unfortunatelly some have a lot of behavioral issues, as well as health issues and are not adoptable, because someone wanted some people to have "good dogs" without having any idea about what they were doing....that is so sad. I hope your dogs know better and they will not mate....

Oh wow I type fast!!! Sorry ok Im not on here to fight about dogs I love them to death and think they are amazing and smart. What I mean about good dogs is they dont have problems they are great for families. I think there is nothing wrong with dogs in pounds I have dogs that are from them and they are great. I love them to death. There is nothing wrong with mix breeds once again I have had dogs that arent purebred. We rescued a choc. lab mix that was abused and was a year old this poor dog didnt even know how to play she was scared of toys and people. We have taught her to love and play. So yes mix breeds and shelter dogs are just as great and I also would like to see more of them adopted.
By the sounds of it some of you are against breeding and like to see dogs fixed. I agree but we are also trying to pass on a great blood line. So I really would like to not hear we shouldn't breed because we dont know enough I research all the time and talk to other dog breeders all the time.
OK, you say you breed your dogs, "good dogs" that do not have any problems....May I ask what health check have you done on your breeding pair to make sure they do not have any problems? As you have done your research, you should be aware of many hereditary diseases that are VERY common in this breed. And, no there is nothing wrong with mixed breeds, just with people who breed them.... And, I hope you know how many amazing and smart great dogs that would be great for families are put down at shelters every year b/c there are not enough homes for them? You want to pass a great bloodline? That is great, but to do this you should have your dogs showed at AKC or UKC shows to make sure they are great representatives of the breed, and they are up to the breed standard, as well as any great bloodline, they should have been checked for health. If you really want to breed great dogs, get a mentor, a reputable breeder, and do it with his/her guidelines, as breeding is not just multiplying dogs, it takes a lot more
