Answer:

1 - hell

2 - put the dog in kennels

3 - being in heat has raised her status so she has to be sorted out.



My suggestion is kennel the male next to the female. I found that taking males away only upset them, they maybe think another dog may take their place.
If you can take your male to work with you it would take his mind off her until he gets home.
Boarding him at a kennels may be a last resort, if you have neighbours any whining and howling if he gets real bad could cause problems.

I find the males don't get truly upset until the female is ovulating, so maybe your girl is further along then you think?

Anyway good luck, and remember to keep her confined unless you are there to watch her.

Margaret
Thanks for the info.
I work out of the house and I have been keeping 1 or the other in the office with me. If it gets any worse I will stick them both out in the Kennels out back. I hope it dosent get any worse :roll:

Tuna, I thought about this a bit more and it would be better if you kept the older female between the male and female in heat.
If he is right next to her when she becomes receptive and starts curling her tail at him, it will be a lot of stress for him and I wouldn't want your dog breaking his teeth on the wire.

Just so he can see she is safe and nearby is all that's needed. It won't stop him whining though :(

Barking

One of the best investments I ever made, was a No-Bark collar! Collar is triggered by dog`s vocal cords vibrating and they punish themselves!

Tuna,

Be careful if you put them in Chainlink Kennels side by side. It has been proven that if the both male and female are in the mood, the female may back up to the fence and they may be able to tie. Never saw it happen, but have heard of it happening. I would think that the male would have to be a contorsionist.

Honey we had one of those last year. Keith and I are still trying to sort out just how that one happened. The bitch was in a kennel that has 24' block wall 2x4" panel for two feet above that and 4x4 panel up to a total of five feet above the block!!!! SHE STILL GOT BRED! CR
