ok well i need your guys help!!!! im in nebraska right now with my family for christmas (: and both or my dogs are in heat ): and my brother-in-law is bring his male dog!!! the puppy is about young (6 or 7 months i think) and i dont want them to breed!!!! and do you think that this male can get her (when i say her i say that because only one of the dogs will let a male get close to her) prego. please respond FAST
At 6 months a male is perfectly capable of breeding. Why is the pup coming when there are two females there in heat? Is he traveling a great distance?... if not I suggest having him leave his dog home or you will have to be very careful to keep them apart
I totally understand wanting the dogs to be with the family but this is not going to be a fun situation for them all having to be locked up any way

well yeah we have not talked to them since the dogs have been in heat..and yeah they are also traveling 4 hours to get here :/. and we just found out that my couisins yorkipoo is coming so there is going to be 5 dogs are here and we really dont know what to do. the house is pretty small so we dont know how we are going to keep them apart. do you think if we kept her diaper on her and we did not leave them alone that everything will be fine.
i wouldnt do it or you will have to keep them all in kennels...separate the males would have to be in a the other side of the house as they will try to break out... put vick vapor rub on the males nose so that it will mask the heat of the bitches.
I would crate the girls up high... put the crates on dressers or something (if they are small dogs), and have them take turn with the boys. Whichever ones are out of the crates should be leashed, attached to you at all times.
Have fun. Why arent any of these 5 animals spayed or neutered?
Why arent any of these 5 animals spayed or neutered? Don't even go there. She explained a while back about bred/breeding/going to breed her dog aggressive bitch or it may have been the one with health issues, perhaps both, forgotten now.
Ah well Sugar, best of luck. Hope it all works out well for you.

well since they are all not my dogs i dont really have a say in what they do with their animals. but sugars got "tested" for breeding and she is ready to go, and the chow chow (snickers) is going to get spayed soon.as for my husbands parents lab , i really feel sry for that poor dog. i mean all they do with her is keep her in her kennal which is outside!!! and right now its about 32 degrees or less. ): but thanks for the tick to put stuff on his nose , im sure that that is going to help alot!
I was also wondering why the dogs were not altered. Sounds like your Christmas holidays are about to turn ugly. The male will get the scent of the females and become a total pain in the butt. It is not going to matter if the dogs are kept on seperate ends of the house. Male dogs can sniff out a female in heat from several blocks away. Better stock up on the heavily "spiked" egg nog , i have a strong feeling you are all going to need it..........
If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.
yeah i know...but thats not going to be a problem anymore ...because yesterday we all (family) went over to my brother -in-laws house (differant brother-in-law) and we had to bring our dog..and they have a dog also (a male) well sugar was in upstairs with the family and ripley (the male) was downstairs in his "room" well my 6 year old niece went downstairs with sugar and let ripley out so that they could "play" and when we asked everyone where sugar was hannah said "shes downstairs playing with ripley. ): and now we dont know if she prego. because she might not of let him get to her and there were alot of places to "hide" from him and i dont believe in aborsion(sp sry) in people or in pets so all i guess i can do is pray ):
Sugar411, you should give up the desire to be a breeder, and stick to writing fiction novels. Your stories just get more and more outragous everytime you post. You keep saying your female has passed all her health clearances, yet you have no idea what most of them are or there purpose. And you keep claiming your vet can do them, which the majority of vets are not setup for these types of tests. And since you can not seem to control or contain your female in heat, it is obvious you are not responsible enough to breed or whelp any litter. Nice new twist, when all else fails BLAME IT ON A CHILD. And who is the adult who is suppose to be supervising the child. Very scarey situation all around.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
Sugar, you said in your post that you did'nt know if the male dog got to her, because there were lots of places to hide. What makes you think that your dog would hide from a male when she's in heat? What day of her cycle is this? I'm sorry, but you're not ready to breed dogs, and must do more than a little research before you attempt to do so. What breed is your dog, and what breed is the one she was exposed to?
well , my dog is a west highland white terrier and the male is a maltese...whats really fun though is that you dont even know me how in the heck do you know if i am or will be a good breeder i grow up with breeding dogs and just because i only come on here and put topics on here about stuff that i need help with does not mean that im not a good breeder, im not even i breeder im just someone how has a couple of litters every 2 years or so.
Sugar, you just said you're not a breeder, you just have a couple of litters a year. What I'm trying to tell you, is that there is a lot of information that you need to know, before you decide to breed. Your posts don't indicate that you have the basic knowledge;and yet you're still in possession of unaltered dogs. My advice is to research your breeds, and find a mentor to help you.
