How old until Stud service?

16 posts in this topic

I was wondering how old do male dogs have to be in order to get a female dog pregnant? My male yorkie is trying to hump but i don't think he is agressive enough to hump a female dog?

Would my male yorkie calm down after he humps his first female or will he continue to be so excited all the time and humps his toys or whenever he sees any dogs. He try to hump my friends male shih tzu and a cat.

mating a male will not fix this behaviour. even after a dog is fixed, it doesnt always stop. and humping is not always a sign of "let me mate right now". it is also a sign of dominance.

THe humping doesn't really bother me because is not like I take him out all the time where he gets to see other doggies. And he doesn't always humps. I guess something triggers him to do it. I call it the male menstral time. But my friends male dog that is fixed he continued to hump. So does it depend on the dog's personality?

it is dependent on a supply of hormones which instructs the brain to initiate reproductive behaviour. Getting him neutered is the best solution and if done at an early age it will reduce the hormones by around 80% over a period of weeks.

Humping is not necessarily a sexual response though it can go hand in hand with a dominance response.
My boy was neutered at 6 months, he has AWAYS tried to hump other dogs, males as well as females. He is 13+ years now and STILL tries to hump other dogs. It's almost funny to see him try and figure out how he will hump Leo the Great Dane. Almost, but not quite. Leo could flatten him to the ground with two paws tied behind his back. Luckily for Jesse, Leo is a mild mannered dog.
I do agree with getting your boy neutered if he is not a TOP quality Yorkie that will be shown and evaluated for breeding purposes.
I personally find humping behaviour annoying at best and dangerous for the dog at worst. Sooner or later, some dog is going to take GREAT exception to another dogs attempt to hump. Your dog might get away with a warning or might get ripped into. Jesse has been knocked to the ground on more than one occaision, I try to stay very close to him at the park so that I can intervene quickly should he decide he wants to hump another dog. At his age, getting knocked down or jumped by another dog is too risky.

[quote name='K']I would go to the vet with your dog and tell him your dog needs a "Vasek Tummy" operation 8) ...things should get better after that![/quote]

LOL! That's cute ;)

But I don't think a vasectomy would cure anything, as opposed to a neuter. Correct me if I'm wrong, but vasectomies do sterilize a male, but they don't get rid of the testicles or the hormones, so a dog with a vasectomy is still going to feel the urge to hump, he just wouldn't produce babies when he did.

At the exotic [email protected] refuge I worked at this summer, male lions were given vasectomies instead of being neutered, because if they were neutered, the lack of testosterone etc. would cause them to lose their manes. In their minds, they were still intact and were always very possessive of the females, unlike the male tigers, who were neutered (and could still be aggressive, but didn't hover over and protect the females).

taken from the Schnauzer breeder from hell
**RING**

I look up from my dinner. Who would call the Schnauzer Breeder From Hell at suppertime? I check the caller id. It's a local call. No mercy. Had they called from different time zone, I might have considered commuting their sentence...

"Yes." Hello is too good for this loser. This should be the first hint.

"Yeah, is this the lady who has Schnauzers? Someone gave me your number... I'm calling about a stud." Uh huh. This loser doesn't know my name, but wants to use one of my studs? I'm just about to pick up the whistle I keep on hand for obscene callers, when I hear words I hadn't expected.

"I have a stud. I thought you might want to use him."

But of course! Whatever was I thinking? I put down my plate. Time to trade in my salad for some fresh meat.

"You do? Please! Tell me more about him."

"He's got papers. We're charging $75 but we might take a pup if there's a good one in there.

If my plan is going to succeed, I must first win his friendship. "Oh my goodness, I could never sleep at night having paid you so little. I wouldn't dream of paying less than $125."

"Really?"

"Absolutely. Actually, some people charge $150 for studding their Schnauzers." I hear the skin on his cheeks snap into an idiot grin.

"Ok. But for you I'll charge $125, though, ok? When do you want to use him? Got anything ready now? We'd really like to get some pups outa him."

"You mean he's never been used before?" I let a long moment of silence pass before continuing, my voice grave.

"I hope you've checked him for T.E.S.S."

"What tests? He's got his shots."

"No, I said TESS T - E - S - S."

There's a little hesitation in his voice now. "Tess?"

"Testicular Ecstatic Seizure Syndrome." I whisper it into the receiver.

"Huh? What's that?"

"Breeding fits. Kind of like a seizure, except it hits them in the rear first. They sort of lose control. It's an awful thing to see. Awful thing... You mean nobody told you?"

"er....no?"

*sigh* "They never do. You're lucky you talked to me then, eh? I may might have saved your dog from a convulsion or worse..." I let that sink in for a moment. First you herd them into the tunnel, then you turn on the light...

"But there's a couple of tests you can do to check for it... easy stuff."

"Yeah? tests?" (He's coming in like a bug to a zapper...)

"You can do them yourself. First you get a female that's ready for breeding, bring your stud in and watch what happens. You have to watch really close...but keep him on a leash so you can get him out of there if you have to."

"Ok"

"Watch your stud real close, and if he starts to chatter his teeth a little, well that's a danger sign. The first thing to start him off in a breeding fit is that teeth chattering thing... are you writing this down?"

"Ok"

"Next thing to do is watch how excited he gets. If he starts scrambling around and won't listen to you, then that's another danger sign. If he does that, get him outa there fast. Let him settle down for a few days. Maybe a week. Then try again. If he still does it, well, he's gonna need an operation."

"An operation?". I can hear the profit margin calculations being adjusted.

"Oh yeah, you can cure TESS real easy. Just get your dog in right away to the vet for an operation."

"You sure? I mean, operations can be kinda expensive..."

"Not as expensive as buying another dog, eh? Besides, if anybody gets even a hint that your dog has TESS, they won't use him. No way. Who wants to waste time on a dog that dies before the job gets done, eh?"

"I never thought about it that way. You got a good point there...."

"Yup. So, this is what you do. You go to your vet and tell him you want him to do a Vasek Tummy operation. Write that down...Va-sek-Tum-my

"Yup, got it. Ok, thanks."

"Wait, for crying out loud, that isn't all!"

"No?"

"If your vet gets any idea that you want to be studding your dog, he's not gonna do it. So, no matter what he says, tell him you don't ever want to stud that dog. NEVER."

"Huh?"

"And don't breathe a word about the TESS. For sure he won't do it then."

"Why not?"

"Vets are funny that way. If they find out you want to fix up a dog with TESS for breeding, they won't let you do it. So they won't do that Vasek Tummy operation."

"Oh. Ok. Now I get this."

"Good. Hey, and good luck, eh? Be sure to call me back and tell me how it went. I like to know about vets who do good Vasek Tummy surgeries. There's lots of people like you out there."

"Thanks. Thanks for your help. I'll be sure to do that."

"No need to thank me" I take out a steak knife and carve another notch in the idiot stick. "The opportunity to help others is the only thanks I need."

lmao @ vasek tummy! I'm thinking the next time some stranger comes up to me and Peanut and asks about me breeding him to their "darling", I'll make sure to ask that they look into a "Hysteric Tummy" Operation.

Cinco was neatured in June when he was returned to elmbrook HS by family #1. IDK what they told family #2 but they returned him also. When we adopted him they told us he'd been fixed in June when he was brought back and on the right up they did on him saying what he had done it said he could still have the feelings of a unfixed male for a few months. But please fix ur animal u'll be saving the lives of a bunch of pups from ur litters that may wind up unwanted and strays.

Male dogs can get a female preg. as yearly as 7 months of age.
He could be coming into his manhood or it could be a dominance thing.
Female also do the humping thing to show dominance.
