I'm hopeing someone can answer this question. This is alittle embarressing but here it goes. My female gsd is in heat. My male gets him self off or I guess you would say masterbates. I want to know if after the male is done if I could let the male with the female for alittle bit without fearing them two mating, MY Idea is two let them together just to play and get some energy out of them both. They have been kenneled and let out for excercise throughout the day but separate. Both of them when let out stand at the door so they are not really getting any excercise. Just wondered if I wait til after the male does his thing how long before he is able to perform.
