Young male and females in heat
So I found out the other day that Dean (a year old, not neutered because he is going to be a show dog) Acts like a total butt face when faced with a female in heat.
How did I find this out you may ask?
We took a nice walk to a local park. He was doing great until we got near the park and he started paying extra attention to spots on the ground. Sniffing, licking, teeth chattering. So I knew it was a female dog pee (He does the zone out sniff and lick with my fixed female bull dog at home *Eye roll*). We were down by the water when I notice a guy walking a bully breed mix our way. I put Dean into a down, and he he is good. Until they get right next to us, and Dean gets a whiff of her. Suddenly he starts this high pitched screaming, and pitching a fit. I get him to keep his down, but he is so loud, and he is arguing with me about having to keep his down, in between his high pitched screams. The poor guy with the bully mix says "sorry, she's in heat, and practically runs away. His dog acted perfectly fine, and super well behaved of course.
Did I mention the park is full of guys either heading out to fish, or fishing already?
They are all staring at me like I am killing my dog. I was so embarrassed.
So I have my sister who has an unspayed female bull terrier, sending me some scent pads the next time she is in heat. My question is how exactly can I use these to train my little butt head. Do I just have them where he can smell them and train him around them, or do I get him to leave them? Or? It's been forever since I've had a male dog, and that was a Yorkie. If he got sassy I just picked him up and carted him off lol
