Ok, I need some help...I'm looking after a house for 3weeks and the owners have a bitch that is going on heat very soon.
They told me to keep an eye out for any signs and to ring them so they can let me know when to put her into the pen so she doesn't have any puppies, as there getting her fixed in a month.
I haven't been able to get hold of them!
can anyone tell me the signs when his going to get her so i know when?? yestursday he was doing alot of smelling and didn't eat anything, i stayed outside with them for about an hour watching for any signs and thats all that was happening... no sign of humping.
Today i went out to feed them and the next door neighbour popped their head over the fence and said the dogs have been fighting alot today...the male is still not eating and now smelling and trying to hump her, he jumps on then gets straight back off, she is doing the same to him, it was quite funny to watch.
I have put her into the pen 5mintues ago just until i get a answer or get hold of the owners.
Is it time to put her in the pen and how long for?
