I can understand in a basic pet obedience class to some extent, but this obed class is competition obedience prep and the class in the ring next to us is Novice Rally.

Yeah the class I'm talking about is a master's level class and it's the only dogs/training going on in the whole building at that time. Also, there are panties and Mira's not a marker anyway, especially when working.

I mean I get it as a general rule. Most intro classes the handlers are struggling mightily to get their dogs to focus even when there's very very little else going on. But I would hope the time dogs are running for MACHs or Nationals that they are working to a level where having a girl in heat around may take a bit of proofing but it's going to cause a meltdown. And she wasn't in flagging/standing heat yet.

LoLa is in heat right now..coming out finally! She can not train at our OB club because it is a rule that in heat bitches can not be in the building. It might distract the boys.

That said, I have a GSD that has been used as a stud, and we do OB around her as much as possible. I EXPECT my boys to work through smells and that includes the smell of an intact bitch in season! I thankfully can still take LoLa to Schutzhund.

If you trial at shows that are held in conjuction with conformation shows, more than likely your male is going to smell a bitch in season since they are allowed in the conformation ring.

The obed club I worked with let girls (with panties) in. I can't say when teaching the intro classes (which is what I did) that dogs were more distracted.
