I have two borzoi. My male will be two in oct and the female just turned 1 in march. They are both house dogs. We are expecting her to come in season any time. How do I keep them from breeding as neither are ready to be bred. We raise labradors but they are in a kennel setting and I don't wish to put her in a kennel. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Would it be possible to put him in a kennel instead?
Use diapers for the female and put her in a separate room? We have a poster on her who has actually had a male break down 2 doors to get to a bitch in heat so I'm not sure what would work in this situation.
We have small dogs so I use diapers and put her in an x-pen with tiny bars on it and put her in another room upstairs while the males stay outside in a kennel until we're ready for the breeding. Not sure if this is an option in your situation.
Maybe others will come along with better ideas.
If you need help, ask God; if you don't, thank God.
