Default Male shows no interest

My bitch has been in heat for about 8 days now she is bleeding and her vulva is quite swollen. The problem is my 2.5 yr old male does not seem too interested,he does lick her pee and occasionally licks her. I know she is not ready for him yet by her response (growling and pulling away) when he licks her. My question: is this normal? Will his interest spike in the next week or so? This is his first breeding so any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated!

If you pet her down by the base of her tail, does she hump her tail up, flag? She could be early, she could be late, is she a maiden bitch?

Some bitches will growl and pull away the whole time they are in heat. Some will bite the stud, and if you have one that is not very confident or a low sex drive, that can ruin your dog, so be careful. Some dogs do not mind being handled, while others want to wait for you to mind your own business.

I usually use an outside stud dog, but my first few litters were with my own dogs. It is a lot easier if you have more than just one person to facilitate.

No she is not flagging yet,she is not a maiden bitch she has already had 1 litter with another male,she was bred rather late into her heat cycle last time and produced only one pup.Her progesterone level last breeding was an 8 and she was bred once. I bought this male from Germany just so i could have a good stud dog yet he shows little interest. He is the one I am worried about!! It is only about 8 or 9 days into the heat cycle am I worrying to soon? Also she was very willing last breed with no growling or biting!

What is her progesterone level at right now? IMO, Might be too soon into her cycle.

Is he a strong dog or a soft dog?

Unfortunately he is a big teddybear......so ya a soft dog scared of his own reflection in the mirror!! He did try to mount once when she first came into heat but she turned him away! He licks her pee and they do play and he usually wins in the playfighting! I dunno I paid a lot of money for this dog,he came directly from Germany. I asked for a good stud and protection dog! Looks like I mighta got screwed!!

How old was he when you bought him over from Germany?
Did he come over titled and rated or is he a green dog?

Yikes, a dog that is "scared of his own reflection" is not a dog that I would breed to my female.
