How to Keep Male Dogs Away From Females in Heat

  1. Supervise the Female Dog. Of course, just as the males are eager to meet your dog, your dog will be eager to meet her admirers.
  2. Keep Her Separated. If you own several dogs, you must keep the males separated from the female.
  3. Close All Windows.
  4. Use Chlorophyll.
  5. Use "Lust Buster"
  6. Put Her in Britches.
  7. Spay and Neuter.

Spaying to Prevent Heat Cycles

If you are sure you never want your dog to have puppies, then you may be best served by having her spayed. According to leading veterinarians, your dog does not need to experience her first heat cycle before you can have her spayed.

Ignore the barking

  1. When you put your dog in their crate or in a gated room, turn your back and ignore them.
  2. Once they stop barking, turn around, praise them and give a treat.
  3. As they catch on that being quiet gets them a treat, lengthen the amount of time they must remain quiet before being rewarded.

What to do

  1. Walk your dog at least twice daily…
  2. Play with them using active toys (balls, flying disks) as often as possible.
  3. Teach your dog a few commands or tricks…
  4. Take a training class with your dog and practice what you learn daily.
  5. Keep interesting toys in the yard to keep your dog busy when you're not around.

Teach what to chew

  1. Take responsibility for your own belongings…
  2. Give your dog toys that are clearly distinguishable from household goods…
  3. Supervise your dog until they learn the house rules…
  4. Give your dog plenty of people-time…
  5. Give your dog plenty of physical and mental exercise…
  6. Build a toy obsession in your dog.

Tips to Keep Dogs From Pooping On Your Lawn

  1. Barriers. The simplest and most instantly effective solution is to erect a barrier that will prevent local dogs from accessing your land…
  2. Sprinklers…
  3. Create A “Poo Zone” ...
  4. Use Smells…
  5. Use Repellents…
  6. Training Is Key.
When you play with your dog, let him mouth on your hands. Continue play until he bites especially hard. When he does, immediately give a high-pitched yelp, as if you're hurt, and let your hand go limp. This should startle your dog and cause him to stop mouthing you, at least momentarily.

Perhaps the best way to stop the problem is through training and environmental management methods, including:

  1. Keep the dog's living area clean, including the yard, so there will be no poops for him to pick up.
  2. Cat owners should keep that litter box clean or out of the dog's reach.

Although six months old is the average age of a dog's first heat, this can vary widely.

Some dogs can go into heat as young as four months, while larger breeds may be as old as two years before their first heat.

Responsible breeders never breed a dog on her first or even her second heat.
