    How old is the bitch and when was she last in season. Is she due to come in season?

    When your bitch comes into season or is coming in you need to separate the males or keep her entirely away from them so that your young entire male doesn't need to fight for her.

    Your young entire male will now take over as boss and you have to allow that to happen.

    When you keep entire dogs together more than just a couple you can expect the odd scuffle. Your breed is strong minded and active.

    During this time keep the exercise up to the males, brain training and obedience.

    Hurry up and get them out to some shows so that you are certain you are going thru all this for a reason.

    Maintain yourself as leader thru calm assertive leadership. Speak to some breeders of your breed to get more knowledge. Owning entire dogs is a different kettle of fish to owning de-sexed dogs.

    Yes I understood that one male is neutered and the other not. Sorry, when I said entire dogs I meant entire dogs and bitches, often throwing in another of either desexed or not can lead to some tiffs.

    Keep a diary of when your girl cycles so that you can be prepared.

    The exercise is purely to keep them tired especially so when girls in season area about. More so than ever before.

    Start by training a conditioned reinforcer/bridge/marker. Once that has been established each time you place her in position mark and reward. If she free stacks mark and reward. To get her to free stack stand in front of her and push her back a step then bring her forward as legs align, mark and treat.

    Finding what she considers a treat that will keep her focus is often the trick. Balls, squeaky toy etc.

    If you google conditioned reinforcer or even clicker training with dogs you will get a lengthy explanation. Or perhaps others here might step in and type it out for you.

    I currently have three Whippets on my lap and typing is difficult.

    I also think there has been some links posted previously??

    I'll check in again in the morning when I'm not covered in Whippets and if no one has stepped in and given you the links or explanation then I'll be glad too.

    Conditioned Reinforcer. Some people use the word Yes. Others use clickers.

    But before I go into a lengthy explanation have you found any info on it yourself?
