Default Does my dog need Viagra???

Well, I have two chihuahuas and they are 2 years old (male) and 1 year old(female). She's been on heat for a week and nothing has happened if you know what I mean Is there something wrong with my dogs? Do I need to help them? Is this normal? Could it be that they do it when no one is looking?


I need some help here people. Time is of the essence

Have you had both dogs thoroughly tested by a vet to make certain they have no genetically transmitted physical problems or diseases and are in top health? How about temperament? Are they top specimens worthy of breeding that will better the breed? It's also very important with Chihuahuas to make sure the female can actually support a pregnancy and carry pups to term. If you haven't done these things you're very lucky they haven't done the deed yet.

Take them both to the vet and get their reproductive systems checked out. One or the other of them may sense a genetic or structural flaw in the other that nixes them as a healthy mate. It's also possible that the female has done something to demonstrate her dislike of the male, but I have trouble believing he'd listen without a major, blood-splashing explanation from your girl.

I know this is going to sound odd, but if there's nothing physically wrong with your male he may be gay. I promise I'm not making it up or making a joke. I wouldn't believe such a thing was possible if I hadn't spent the last 15 years in almost constant close contact with dogs. I have probably known around 500 dogs, we can assume that a little less than 50% of them were male, and of those there were probably 80 to 100 unneutered guys. Of those, I personally witnessed 3 that ignored females completely, even when the girls in heat pressed their rears right up against them. Not interested. (Did you know the record-setting race horse Secretariat was gay? No joke.) But those same dogs would mount males and enjoy themselves in that manner if the other male would allow it. Might not be the case here, but you should know there is such a thing as a homosexual animal.

Woah!! Gay!!! I guess there's nothing wrong with that, but **** my luck . I'll take them to a vet and find out they are fine, however we take them to the vet each year to make sure they are OK and nothing has come up positive yet. So there's nothing else I can do? A friend told me that if I stroke his back it will help him get exited and then I guide him towards her but that sounds like rape in a way . What do you guys think?

I'm afraid I spend a good deal of my professional career teaching dogs not to mount each other and advising owners to spay and neuter. So I have probably been as much help as I can. I'll ask Love4Pits to come give advise.

CreatureTeacher, I understand what you are saying. I don't like to see so many stray dogs out on the streets but my dogs are worthy of breeding to better the breed, so we can always enjoy chihuahuas. They are AKC and UKC certified and the female comes from a champion bloodline besides of being a long hair blue coat which makes her more rare and expensive. I'll be wrong not to breed them. I can't nueter them.

First off a 1 year old female is far to young to breed in the first place. You will have far more problems when it comes time for her to have her pups you may lose her along with the pups (not smart). I breed Huskies and Chins they however are not bred if they do not pass health tests many health tests which costs alot of money. If the dogs are not perfect they are not bred no way no how their spayed or neutered right on the spot

Im not hearing anything about her having exceptional health other then she's pretty and thats about it. Trust me I have quite a few dogs here i would love to breed for sheer beauty but their not PERFECT and so I will not breed them.

Im assuming their show dogs thats why they can't be neutered right? Still that doesent mean they should be bred.

Other then that im going with what everyone else above has said.

Also I breed my dogs for working purposes I am a dog musher and I am bettering the breed because like I have said before i only breed perfect dogs.

I think you should take this as a sign maybe they just should'nt be bred. Both dogs are fairly young and its just not smart.

Please Please Please read my reply to this girls post.

I ditto all of the above....especially that the female is too young. But FYI her cycle may be that she hasn't reached the point at which to breed....males know this.
