    Default Breeding Issue

    Well, my parents bought a female from another state, with intentions of her breeding with our male. They are both the same breed and size. Its been 2 years since we bought her 2. When the male tries to mount her when she is on heat, she just sits down. We have seen this with other females, but after abit of time, the male dose his thing, but our male is having problems trying to do whats natural. He dosen't have the same problems with other females.

    I've heard of this method used in other coutries, you take your male and female to a vet, the vet takes a sample of the males sperm, and injects in it the female(how, i dont know), but heard that this is not available here in Australia.

    Is there anything i can do to help her become pregnant, as my parents are considering selling her, but she is a sweet dog so would be a shame, and she is a very nice cream colour. If she becomes pregnant just this one time, then i bet instinct would kick in and everything would happen naturaly in the future.

    I don't know why don't vets do artificial insemination??? Did you ask elsewhere? Don't concentrate just on one single vet, I am quite sure somebody does it, as it is not complicated at all, I know some breeders do it themselves.
    Another thing is that your girl is just not ready. She may be in heat, but there are certain days when bleeding is nearly over when bitch will allow male to jump her.

    Would agree with Fedra here - she sounds like she's not quite ready. She won't become receptive until nearly the end of her season (which is three weeks long) so be patient with her.

    She will know when she is, you may have to try her morning and night, if she sits, wait and try again later.

    Artificial insemination is available, and any vet should be able to advise you on who what where when and how etc. It might be something that needs to be planned for with health screening and hormone management though, I don't know if it can be arranged at short notice. Again, ask your vet.

    Vets usually do blood tests, as well as advise you to measure temperature and do some hormone tests.

    Perhaps you should try an experienced stud male? And I'm afraid the only way to prevent her from sitting is to hold her stomach up as the dog mounts.

    someone had lent their female to us so our stud can do his thing. She sat down for the first 2 days but he started to get her to stand up and did his job. Our male has a great reputation with other females. He gets abit shy when we get close to him when he tries to mount, just sits down and has this horny look on his face. A friend has a white male and we'll probably give her to him as this dog is currently on heat(just the beggining)

    Hi Victor Dance,

    The most obvious question for me is to ask if you (or your Parents) are Registered Breeders with a breeders prefix, and a member of relevant associations?

    The majority of Registered Breeder Orgs have a mentoring system where you are teamed up with an experienced breeder who offers guidence, support and education. This does not seem to be the case here. I too would assume you are a backyard breeder.

    The sadest comment by far is that your parents are willing to sell this girl (who you state is very sweet) simply because she may not be a worthy breeding machine. Chances are she will be sold to someone else to breed with and has a very good chance of falling into the wrong hands and being bred to death.

    I urge you to desex her before she is sold and rehome her very carefully to reduce the chances of this happening.

    I know this may sound harsh, but there is an oversupply of dogs in this country. Profit riding on the back of animals....and the killing in pounds and shelters is nothing short of epidemic proportions.

    I genuinely hope you hang around, and learn more about the issues VDance, believe me you will be astounded.

    If your parents arent registered breeders, then tell them to not to breed. Has the dogs been genetested for any problems associated with the breed.

    Now my posts are getting edited. Unreal *sigh*

    Its called AI and AI will be a waste of time if the bitch isnt ready...

    My suggestion is to go and do some serious research b4 you try and breed dogs, if you dont know how to breed then god only help you when it comes time to whelp!
