    Don't try to tie a day to each female, as we all know they are all very different! I had a female cycle to be bred on day 24 before, so don't try to tie it to one day! Personally I think all females especially really good ones should be held out 2 months just to make sure they are not in season.

    I have a bitch in heat at the house with her brother in the kennel next to her. Had to install a 3' wall on her side to keep them from hooking up through the fence. Also, put a top on his kennel. She hasn't hit the magic day yet, but he's starting to get pretty fired up. Probably have to put him in the house in his crate the closer that day comes. Never a dull moment at my house.
