When you have dogs of different genders in the home, the period where your female pet is in heat can be quite trying. As said in Jurassic Park, “nature finds a way” or in this case, the dogs will find one in order to mate.
With the way things are progressing, the chance of my little star getting pregnant is very high. In a way, this is a good thing as the vet said she must have at least one litter to avoid certain diseases caused by “un-use or disuse”. No more need for her to be spayed!
- A diaper will not work as a barrier. They managed to tear off the critical parts and get the deed done anyway.
- Separate rooms don’t work. Somehow they still managed to meet up and get it done. Not to mention the scratching and whining at the doors can drive one nuts!
- A really crate is needed for both to keep them separate (and better pray that your fur baby isn’t a smart one like mine who actually manages to open the door). Better yet, board one of them til the heat passes
- No use crying over spilled milk. Once the deed is done, best prepare for puppies in 60 days.
