Okay, I was planning on breeding my female this cycle. I first noticed blood last Monday. She has never been good on the timing of her cycle, but she has always been exactly 21 days for duration. Usually, I can tell by my male, when she is "prime", it has always been near day 10. He is usually out of his mind, whining, crying, trying to get into the kennel. This time we have none of that, he has been slightly interested, but has not tried anything yet. We put them together today, and he only licks at her, but that is it. In fact, they are now each sleeping on each end of the couch.
I know I am not doing this all by the book...(progesterone testing, etc.) but now I am worried, do you think we missed it? Do you think she just isn't ready yet? When you progesterone test, do you do that daily? Will it help me now?
He has been used as stud 3 times, once with her. This would be her second breeding.
