Man heat cycles are a pain in the buttocks. With a female in heat and a male I gotta cycle them through the garage and house three times a day to do their bidness outside. If I take her out where he can see and smell her he goes berserk. So I take her out of the garage, put her in the house, go get him and put him in the garage where he immediately begins liking the floor where she's been. Take her outside to air, put her in her kennel, go around to the garage, put him in the house, go get her and put her in the garage, then take him out to air where he goes frantic smelling and licking her "spots". The male is trying to chew through the kennel wire, has all the straw raked out of both houses, won't eat, has been trying to dig out through the wooden kennel deck and barks constantly if he is outside alone. Whatta pain. Man will I be glad when this is over.
