My Duke is 2 1/2 years old and has sired 3 litters of pups. Gretchen came into season last January and he didn't show intrest in her at all. Now Abby is in and he doesn't seem to even notice....Any ideas?
Are you sure that she is in standing heat? Many times seasoned males are very sensitive to their cycles and are only interested right at the prime breeding days and not before. I have a male here like that. I didnt know he was until I went to use him the first time and he could have cared less! lol. I called the person I got him from to see what was going on with him, after 2 days in a row of no interest I was concerned. This boy will pay no mind to a female at all until they are at perfect breeding time, no sooner , no later. Kind of makes it nice though, you know you will always breed the right days.
People are like slinky's, not really good for much. But its still fun to push them down the stairs.
If it is indeed her time and he still not interested, test his thyroid levels. Hypothyroidism can cause many fertility problems in both males and females. In males, loss of libido and low sperm count are some of the symptoms.
If I seem to have a superiority complex, it is because you make it so easy.
I know someone with a dog that will not mate to any other dog except for the one and only one that he likes. The females can dance around him putting it in his face and he just turns away. LOL Thats how all men should be.
Whoever said you can't buy happiness, must have never owned a dog!!!!!!!!!!!
