Red Gretchen ...please continue with your posts regarding your experiences .........if for no other reason than for us city slickers that would never get to experience breeding practices firsthand.
I do not know you personally....... but over several years I have read many of your posts within this forum.....and I do not believe for one moment you would stand by and allow abuse to happen to any animal.
So continue with this thread please...........

FWIW, my friend told me that in the stud contract she had to sign for her bitch, it says she MUST wear a muzzle.

@ Artemis

Honestly, I have never understood the negative stigma associated with canine muzzles.

Along time ago we had a Dobe dog who was severely afflicted with Pica. He could not be trained out of it. At the suggestion of our vet, who was pretty much a Doberman expert (and judge), we started to muzzle him when he was not under our immediate control. The dog (Britten David) could not have cared less. In fact he became inured to its almost immediately.

The long story short: He was happy and safe.

I used to keep his leash, collar and muzzle on hooks in the kitchen. He would fetch and bring me any or all of them. When I was leaving the house, I would say: "Bring me your Muzz". He would grab it off the wall and sit while I put it on him. Wagging nubby. Never an issue. He treated his muzzle the same way he treated his collar. Just a part of doggy life.

Safe dogs... That's what is all about.

Absolutely. In Hungary dogs are permitted on public transit so long as they are muzzled - knowing this I prepared months ahead of time to introduce the muzzle to Nadia. To this day I show her a muzzle and she will put her own nose into it. I have a video of her somewhere falling asleep with her muzzle on on, her head resting on my chest as I'm softly stroking her neck.

But I was bringing it up in allusion to criticism of using a muzzle during breeding, to show that sometimes, there isn't actually a choice involved in the matter. If my friend wants to breed to this stud, she has no choice - and it has nothing to do with forcing her bitch or disrespecting her bodily autonomy.

Since so many have shown support I will keep up the thread.

The 2nd breeding was last Monday. The bitch was still held but was far more receptive and was super happy to see Mav, as he was to see her. This time he was a bit quicker and did the job all on his own. Those males can really be quick learners when they want to be.

and now we wait.... Ultrasound is scheduled for the end of the month. We are both trying to not get our hopes up but it's so difficult.
