Q. I bred my Rot 4 months ago. Now he wont work when there are bitches in season. What should I do?
I have male rot that has been mated the first time for 4 months ago. Most of the females around are in their period now and he is a real pain in training. First pass in the bite work he's really domestic and frustrated, can take a bite here and there. Can see and can't hear, and takes himself totally out, and he has good condition. The second pass after a break he's calmer and are back in function. Shall I go on as usual or pull him down with more obedience training?

Kind Regards,
Helena

A. This is a drive issue and also an obedience issue.

The females distract the dog - this goes with breeding. Now he must learn to mind when females are in season.

Take cotton swabs and keep wiping the blood whenever you can from the females when they are in season. Keep them in a zip lock bag in your freezer. When you do obedience training. Lay them on the floor and allow him to smell them - then make him work with a prong collar - he MUST do obedience around bitches.

When he is going to breed a bitch - always put the prong on and do obedience before you allow him to breed. The reward for good work is breeding. They learn very quickly. This is better than hot dog training.

Feeding tube is 16 inches long (41cm) and approximately 3/32 inches (2.7mm) outside diameter. It is best to store your feeding tube and syringe at normal room temperature. In colder temperatures the feeding tube will become rigid and stiff. At body temperature, the tube becomes softer, resilient, and completely flexible. Syringe is 35cc and attaches to the integral funnel end of the feeding tube. The opposite end of the feeding tube has a closed rounded tip with 2 side port 'eyes'.
