How long can the male dog stay knotted to the female

Customer Question

How long can the male dog stay knotted to the female during mating?

I know of ties lasting up to 45 minutes or more. If they have been tied too long then you can get the male back up over the female's back in the original breeding position and give him a push up into the female to see if that will help them release.
But other than that just keep the dogs calm, do not stroke or pet them which stimulates them so they stay tied longer.
Hope this helps you!
