    hi, i have a 7 month old spaniel x collie who might be coming into her first season soon, and of course she's too young View attachment dog chastity belt.bmp to be having pups yet. BUT, we have to take her to the park (she's far too energetic to be left inside, she'd tear up the place, and she would the garden too. And at strange times the yobs come out with their choke - chained - badly - raised unneutered staffies.
    so i thought of this :

    serpent, why would i want to download and OPEN a random program? :huh: i cannot afford malware in my PC.

    if this is such a problem, SPAY * HER * NOW is my strong suggestion -
    U will have approximately a MONTH start to finish, with her smelling yummy before her standing-heat, 4 to 5 days of standing-heat minimum, PLUS a few weeks of luscious smells post-heat.

    * she CANNOT be off-leash during the entire time - in case U got the calculations wrong + she is fertile
    * she can get embroiled in a fight even ON-leash, if a really persistent off-leash dog shows up

    see NELLYBELLY and her thread on the recent heat, false-preg, infection, etc, for a preview of the fun to come :rolleyes:
    then decide if U want to be peeling a pitbull off yer puppy...
    good luck,
    --- terry

    If you can't guarantee keeping her safe in season (which includes no walks!) then get her spayed.

    Then you can't let her off the leash when she is season - you will have to find safe places to walk her ON LEASH away from the choke-chained staffie boys. You need to make sure your garden has fences that are AT LEAST 6 feet high or male dogs WILL get in and get to her. You with have to cope with about 2 months of this every 6 months, running the risks of pyomytras and various cancers and unwanted pregnancies. She will change personality too - probably a bit like PMT in women but lasting longer. I know you have talked about wanting to breed you dog before - have y0ou decided whether to do all the test for both of the breeds your girl is? Have you considered the same for your stud - do you have the £1K minimum set aside for emergencies (in case she needs a caesar etc), and the money to raise the pups and sort out good homes for them etc - you are very unlikely to make any money and dogs don't need to be a mum - it doesn't make them feel good nor give them a sense of well being - all they now is hormones keep coursing through their bodies etc.

    Personally I'd spay - I'm spaying mine and I think her life will be happier and healthier because of it.

    serpent, hun - what do Ur parents think of this? :huh:

    getting pregnant may be * natural * - but its hard on the dam, costs $$ to do right, is IMO = ethically Wrong = to do badly -
    and results in more pups, in a world with only so many homes that want dogs.

    U have approx 2-mos, twice each year, with the potential for a pregnancy - or false pregnancy - with the dog stealing
    small objects to serve as PUPPIES, guarding them, wanting to escape, MARKING - she will pee 3 or 4 x as often as normal,
    she will want to STOOL off her home property to advertise, she may cry when she hears or sees other dogs, whine, howl,
    she is very likely to have a bladder-infection during or AFTER each heat - for a month to 6-weeks after -

    her breasts may swell, she may lactate; she may get mastitis (one or more infected teats) - she may be irritable or morose,
    go off her food, be snappish ESPECIALLY with other F-dogs!, she may cry at night... she may do things she has never done before;
    dig out of the yard, climb or jump fences or walls, ...

    and this will happen every 6-mos, for 8 to 10 years or more -
    i got one of the last survivors of a litter of TEN puppies born to a 15-YO Bluetick-Coonhound -
    at 9-WO Gidget weighed 1.5# and was constantly sleeping - she had legs like sticks, her eyes were too big for her bony face,
    and her belly looked like she had swallowed a softball :mad5: she was FULL of worms, she had 3 different species in her gut.
    she sh*t nothing but worms for THREE DAYS, 4 to 6 times a day, before she had her first bowel-movement. :eek:
    she began to gain weight on day-four and slowly recovered - at 12-WO she weighed 12#.

    U can do as U please - but the dog is at Ur mercy; it is entirely up to U to keep her safe, healthy + behaviorally normal.
    she cannot save herself - she is helpless in this situation. :nonod: good luck.

    awesome post

    and serpentseye I know you are only 12? and I know you have alot of opinions on things whether right or wrong in others thoughts, but the most important thing is not necessarily what you want, but what is right for the dog! you look after the dog, care for the dog and you must do what is right for the dog! even if sometimes it may not be what you would prefer.

    i love that dog with all my heart, that's why i don't want to play god and mutilate her. I'll just let her be a dog, let her do what's natural.if anyone is overbreeding and has to be neutered it's humans! the world would be a better place if we just died out altogether.

    well I honestly hope you can cope with the pain and suffering that you could potentially put your dog through. and you have the savings to pay for it all. At 12 I understand that the world seems black and white but if you want her to just be a dog and be natural I hope you let her hunt for her food only (don't feed her - that's not a dog's natural state), don't vacinate her (human intervention) and let her get pregnant on her first season to the most vicious dog that has won breeding rights with her (the pup will all be horrid unsocialised wretches that will end up put down once they are in rescue) - she'll be dead in a year!!!!!!:eek: That's definately playing god and mutilating her!

    Or, you can at least keep her safe (feed, vacinate and neuter) - if you won't neuter then you HAVE to walk her ON LEAD only at strange times when no-one else is about - she can't ever be in the garden on her own and that chastity belt won't work (if she can pee and poop she can be mated) and you will be condemming her to 4 months of every year to basically being a prisoner in her own home and a grotty hormonal one at that.

    As a human that has been "spayed":) there is absolutely nothing unatural or wrong about it, unless you can guarantee you will keep your bitch out of harms way, walk her on leash at very unsociable hours(which I would imagin a little difficult for a 12 year old to do unless your parents are prepared to do this), then you have a DUTY to do right by your girl, better having her spayed than to possibly die going through the birthing process at too young an age. unfortunately you may have strong opinions about certain procedures, but if you cannot protect her from the harm of dogs going after her because she is in season, it would be selfish on your part to stick to your opinions, and place your girl in harms way

    To be honest, I think you should get her spayed. What have your parents said?

    We aren't getting ours spayed, but she is my dog, I pay for all her vet bills, food, grooming, everything. We will however get her spayed if she is going to be living at my in-laws, as I wouldn't trust them with an unspayed dog, and would let her off all the time.

    We know that when she comes into season, she will need bascially 25 days indoors, with short on lead walks at strange times of day, when no-one is around. Will your parents let you out at say 10pm at night when most other dog walkers will have been and done their walks?

    It is the kindest thing to do, for a dog that is kept as a pet, not for show, as it limits their chances of getting pyo and needing the urge to mate, when you are there stopping them! You should talk it through with your parents, so they understand where you are coming from, however I would take their advice!

    12 or not.... this is the attitude that is leaving rescue centres bulging at the seams sadly!!! As for mutilation, don't be so infantile... it's what any sensible owner would do with a dog in your situation!!!

    But hey.. each to their own... I lookforward to the woe is me posts when you're little bitch is having her first litter, you trying to rehome, and subsequently take back any dogs that don;t work out right, or hey maybe they'll just go into rescue, that's what it's there for!!!

    Shame on all us responsible owners that shock horror, mutilated our dogs to prevent this sinario!!!
