I currently have 2 toy poms one male and one female. We have had the male since he was 6 weeks old and just got the female after much discussion between my husband and I. We agreed and found our new member of our family. Well our male has mated with her and they are both same age and just over 2 yrs old and we were expecting this as well and the male literally mated with her everyday for at least the past week and they have connected but not exactly "Locked Up" and its not her being pregnant I am worried about because we are ready for that its now our male is really really protective of her and she dont want anything more to really do with him as far as mating but will play and our male will and has literally just sat and kept up constant barking at her at all hours. Once we saw he was beginning to upset the fem,ale and had her growling at him we seperate the two so she doesnt stress out real bad incase she is pregnant and plus she is new here. We have only had her for about a month. She has taken to our family she loves my husband and I and the kids just the same as our male but its the constant barking and he is being a little too aggressive with her like a human male controlling the female and I dont know what to do. She will go and hide under our bed and he will just go under there with her and constantly bark and bark and bark. I am constantly telling him no which he clearly understands since was a puppy and he will stop for all of a min or so then its back to barking and he will only finally actually quit once I loose my cool and literally scream NO at him over and over and over again. Why is he doing this and how to stop this as well...
First, without trying to offend, you seem obviously NOT ready for puppies at all. First, you refer to your dogs as 'toy' poms. They are simply Pomeranians...they come from the 'toy' group. Pomeranians are naturally a small breed. They will either be within standard or oversize...never a toy, a mini, a micro or any of the other cutesy names the BYB's use to get you to buy from them.
Next, you are not yet knowledgeable on even the breeding aspect. Never do you just allow them to run free together during the entire heat cycle and them them breed constantly at will! A male will attempt to breed and bother her non stop from up to 2 weeks before she is even visibly in season. As long as they can smell it, they will attaempt. However, a female is not ready to be bred the moment they start bleeding. There is a point in their cycle when they are in 'standing heat'. THAT is the time in which to cover her. One tie per day, skipping a day in between. Example: Breed Monday, if you get a successful tie, skip Tuesday, cover her agin on Wednesday. Thats it, you really do not need additional breedings if you know how to time the cycle.
Because of this, the male should not be left to be around her 24/7 from the moment you know she is in heat (or he is insistent that its time) If you are going to have 2 intact animals, you will need to read up and/or get a mentor to help you through this all. If she is not standing, she will attack, bite the male. This can easily ruin a male and make him a poor stud. He can begin fearing the breeding process, and if this is a show dog, scars and wounds on the face have to be avoided.
Seperate them now! Expect to keep them this way for 3-4 weeks from the time she came in.
Unfortunately for the dogs, this is the EASIEST part of being a breeder. Toy breeds have a tendencies to have difficulties whelping, meaning difficult labors, with a high chance of c-section. IF she would whelp during normal business hours, then you can expect $400-500 for the procedure. After hours $1,000 and up.
Start now as well reading up on hand raising puppies, about making a whelping area, heat lamp, etc. What signs to look for during labor that she needs intervention, etc.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain.
