- how do you know when you male dog is ready to mate?
- Q: i have a pomeranian 5 12 old puppy. whant to stud him.
- A: You’ll know when you have him vet checked to make sure that he can’t pass any genetic ailments to the future pups like hip dysplasia or other health conditions. Only after a clean bill of health should you even think about studding him out. Then after a clean bill of health you need to do some research on breeding. Personally I don’t agree with bringing more dogs into an already over populated world. There are already so many dogs in shelters around the world that are in need of good homes. I recomend that you volunteer at a local shelter then ask yourself if you want to contribute to this. Good luck
- How do you know when a dog is in heat? & how can you tell when she is ready to mate?
- Q: What specific things do you look for? And NO I am not mating dogs. But my neighbor is. She doesn’t know too much about it though and she insists on doing it so I want to help ensure she does it right since she is doing it no matter what. Although I can’t let her know I am making sure she is doing it right because I don’t want to insult her. I just don’t want her female dog to die because of her other male dog or the pups born to them either!********Any rudeness, insults, non-answers will be reported promptly!******
- A: your neighbor really needs to find a breeding mentor if she insists on breeding.There’s more tobreeding than knowing when the female is in heat, and waiting for her to accept a male.There’s many risks and expenses that come… even if you do everything right, death to the female or pups is always a possability.Your friend really needs to find an experienced mentor who can help her do research. The show ring is a good place to start.
- What is the best way to introduce young adult dog into a new home where there is already a dog?
- Q: We’ve had a male min-pin for a little over three years now. He’s somewhat lazy but still very playful. We can’t play with him all the time so we thought the best thing for him is to get a companion. We got a one year old female min-pin from a breeder who wanted to keep her and changed her mind but then couldn’t sell her because of a few flaws. We’re not interested in showing her so flaws were not a big deal.Since she is just coming out of being in heat, we took our male to another house and we also thought this would be good for her to get to know our house and us without being hounded by a ready-to-mate male. However, she is not warming up to us. She runs from us when we want to love on her. She’ll follow me around but when I go to show affection she doesn’t want me to touch her. She has met our male dog. He was VERY excited, probably because she was coming out of heat, but she growled and ran from him. We had to keep them separate that whole night. Anyway, I guess I’m asking if this is normal? Have any of you experienced this and if so how did yours adapt? How long did it take? How can I encourage a good relationship between us and her as well as our other dog?
- A: Ok. This is the way I just introduced my puppy to another large dog. I put my puppy in her crate and brought the other dog over. The other dog then is able to smell the puppy and you can see how it reacts. If the dog reacts in a nice way, then you can take them both outside and let the larger dog sniff the dog all over. This way they can smell and tell they are not a threat.The older dog may nip at the newer dog, but it is just showing its territory. I brought my puppy to my parents house where we had two older dogs there. They did not like the puppy at first, and one even nipped at him hard. What we did was stay very close to the older dogs and told them “NO!” when they started to growl. This process took quite a few days, almost a week, of telling the older dog it is unacceptable to growl at the new dog. The way to encourage the good relationship is to set boundaries, with all the dogs. The new dog will learn, via the older dog getting mad, what he can and can’t do to the other dog, and the other dog will learn he cannot growl or nip at the newer dog by YOU telling the dog that is unacceptable behavior.I hope this helps! 🙂
