Why is it my 3 year old Beagle only wants to play this time when she is in heat. last time she came in she stood really well but didnt take..were not sure that our older beagle just didnt get her or what..but this time we are using my young beagle to breed her and she only wants to jump around ..now she will let them sniff and other but just wont stand to be breed..we are new at this breeding..me and my husband have 5 beagles and we have an awsome female and wanted to try our hand at raising some great pups.. thanks... beaglerunner42
It is pretty apparent just be reading your post that "you are new to this breeding". There is a lot more to successful breeding than just throwing two good looking dogs together and trying your hand at raising puppies. Maybe your girl is smart enough to know that neither you nor she is ready to have puppies.
I would more question why she didnt take last time, then her playing this time. Have you checked the older males sperm count? How old is old, and how young is young. Just becuase she is in heat doesn't mean she is ready to breed or be a mom. There is alot more to properly breeding healthy pups then throwing 2 dogs together becuase they are cute.
Age can play a big role, as can diet, stress and many other factors.
Breeding, whelping, and raising pups is much more complicated than you are ready for apparently.
Also, her being in heat is not enough, there is a window of time when she is ready to be bred. She is likely not far enough in yet. Also, having not took last time, I would have had alot of tests afterwards to rule out issues that may have caused this.
Beagles are a dime a dozen, and the shelters are chalk fu;; of Beagles. Unless you are showing or hunting and have something wondeful to add to the breed, 'trying your hand at it' is an irresponsible reason.
