New to me

I was running my gyp wich is 5 and my male who just turned a year. It was rather warm so i figured just go out for a hour. Both will run a rabbits legs off but last night we couldnt get on any she was working the brush not making a peep and that pup kept comming up and barkin following her like he was workin a rabbit. Come to fund out she i comming into heat. Anybody ever dealt with or seen this before? If so how can i break him from it.

Re: New to me

Break him of what, natural-born instinct? He's not doing anything wrong- she's in heat! He's doing exactly what he's supposed to do. I think it's up to you to keep them seperated while she is in heat. I certainly wouldn't run them together or leave them anywhere alone together or where there's any possibility he can get to her when you're not around.

Re: New to me

Although RyanR's comment comes off as a little rude (IMO), he's correct.

Don't run them together.
If you don't want the risk of pups, keep her secured away from any males.

Re: New to me

Could have been the excitement from the male smelling a female in heat or he was dog tracking. A lot of pups will dog track, I am surprised you have raised pups your whole life and never seen one do it before.

Solo time usually helps, as does age and experience.

Re: New to me

Brine, didn't mean it to be rude at all just don't see how it's something to correct or punish the male for doing. That seems wrong to do to me. Question seemed a bit odd to me. You just keep the dogs seperate until the female is out of heat.

I agree.

In regards to dog tracking, seems like a good possibility, my pup used to do it as well but he didn't give any mouth.

Re: New to me

The pup should now be getting hunted alone. He is becoming a "me too dog".

Re: New to me

Agree with the solo time. Sounds like he may have been following her for some time now and the barking is just starting. Heat may have played a small part but probably not much. I've seen dogs do that before and even some who would bark when the others got too far out of sight because they knew the others would come back. That one didn't stay in the pack too long for sure.
