My female dobie is in heat for the first time is just plain pitiful! She has a little doggie diaper on and hates it she walks around with her head down and ears back, she will not play at all and is usually nonstop with goofing around, she comes and puts her head in your lap just wanting love all the time... Is there anything I can do to help her feel more comfortable? I try my best to love and talk to her trying to let her know I'm here. I'm sure it's a crazy feeling for a dog to do that they don't quite understand what's happening to their bodies. Is this typical? Has anyone experienced this and found a way to perk em up?
