What to expect when going into heat

by Tonya

This is sort of an indelicate question but I wanted to know how to prepare for our dog's first heat cycle. We were told to wait to spay her to prevent other medical issues that can happen when spaying early. I just remember what we went through with our Kelpie. What do you use to contain the body fluids on a Pyr? I can see ours shredding it up. Help!

If you look there are hygiene products that can be fastened to her harness. I just went through this with my Newfie and it was far less messy then you would think.

At the advice of my vet (who is a giant breed specialist), I am waiting until she is 2 full years old. I can guaranty there will be no litters here!

You have to be extremely vigilant and put forth the effort to own these big beautiful dogs. It is not for everyone.

roam with heard while in heat
by: Anonymous

while they are in heat do you still allow them to roam with the herd? I was told that it attracts coyotes and make them tend to attack more.

Make sure to have her spayed.

There are enough unwanted dogs out there filling shelters and rescues. Many have to be put down.

Thanks for your comment, but that wasn't my question. I need to find out if we should keep her out roaming the heard while in heat.
