I have a female dane in heat. She started bleeding 12 days ago but just swelled up 6 days ago, I have never seen a female bleed for a week before actually swelling up. Is this normal?

I have an 8 month old male and he has reached puberty and he bites at his private area and tries to pleasure himself and whines while doing this. We have a friend who has a female that just went into heat and they want to breed her with our dog... Would this be a good idea? Would it maybe help his problem and calm him a little?

I have a dog whos is acting strange with her pups. If I only let her with them to feed, how often does she need to feed them? Is this the best thing to do?
