Is it normal for a male dog to not eat when a female is in heat?
Breeding activity - There have been many cases of a male dog not eating when a female is in heat nearby.
Generally, the situation will resolve itself as the female passes out of her heat cycle, but if your dog has lost a dramatic amount of weight, it may help to tempt him with foods he is not usually allowed to have.
How long do I wait before taking my puppy outside? Vets recommend waiting until 10-14 days after your puppy's last vaccination booster – usually at around 14–16 weeks of age – before introducing them to the wonders of local parks, beaches and walking trails.
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.
In the event that you want to breed your dog or prevent a pregnancy, there are noticeable signs that can alert you that your dog is in heat: First stage (proestrus).
Your dog's vulva will look swollen or larger than normal.
This is usually accompanied by a bloody vaginal discharge and she may urinate more often.
