So how far away can a male detect a female in heat?
I have never had an intact male before my dogs were always spay/neutered. My current Shepherd is 16 months old we live in a rural area on 8 acres unfenced he is never out unsupervised has excellent recall but does wear an e-collar daily while out (we have a ton of wild life). I just found out that the neighbors down the road about a mile have 3 intact females. So my question is how faraway can they smell a female in heat?
