Hello all, and thank you in advance for any help. This is my problem, i have a total of three dogs in my house. One female chocolate lab (in heat) at roughly 3 1/2 years, one Male chocolate lab about 2 years and a male Shihtzu which is about 10 months, none of which are fixed. Obviously I want to breed the labs, my male and female have been together aprox. 6 months. She has been in the family her whole life, for the first couple months they did have the whole domince thing going on. We moved about 4 months ago and since moving it seems obvious that he has taken the role as her and the Shihtzu both "bow" to him in a sense. So since day one he has tried and depending her mood he could try, or she would growl. When she would just let him he seemed to be able to get her by one leg only. Now that she is in heat she "flirts" with him as far as even pawing him when he's laying down and putting her butt in his face. But he sniffs and ignores it. Now the Shihtzu on the other hand started trying so we keep him separate for the time being. I know my male ain't fixed but can't figure out why he don't want her when she wants it, but does when she don't?
