If you need to take him back to dog classes so you are again respected and listened to... then just sign up for some more classes and regain your leadership role in his eyes.

Actually she did have a UTI, the same day as the last time I posted I noticed her squatting to pee a lot outside but nothing was happening. Then she came inside and peed all over the floor, but she didn't know she was doing it because she walked ALL over the kitchen peeing on herself we got some antibiotics, Eko is not doing it as much but still a little bit.

He is actually not really allowed near other dogs. He has to wear a muzzle and a prong when I take him on walks because he goes after and tries to bite pretty much any dog he sees except for Xena, he is very gentle with her. I don't think he would attack a dog in heat, though. I would be too nervous he'd attack other dogs in a class, he goes for it even with the muzzle on and I don't want him to get hurt. We are doing a lot of counter conditioning with him, he is doing better but I couldn't trust him in a room full of dogs. We have had a trainer over a couple of times I could probably get him to come over again and help me get some leadership back

Bridget Our male lab is after the girls (both spayed) approximately every six months for about a week, then it's over. Not at the same time either. I believe that even though spayed, they must still put out an odor when they would have been in heat. It's the only thing I can figure out.

LeoRose I agree with checking for a UTI. If she comes back clean, then make it clear to your male that humping is NOT acceptable.

my boy diesel male dogs still know its not a boy so it must be something to breed with
this behavior is not uncommon

I have had really good luck with Bladder Control tablets with my incontinent spayed females. I would have her checked again.

I also put all my spayed girls on these tablets, just in case. The tablets have also helped with UTIs on my little crippled girl. Seems to help relieve some of the urgency.

Thank you for the links I will be at the vet's today and I will ask her if those would be okay to try with Xena's epilepsy medication. And yeah, she has had bladder issues from birth, she has weak muscles and has trouble holding her bladder.

Hmm... She was treated for a light UTI in November, it's possible she could have another. She is incontinent, could that put her at risk for frequent UTIs?
