Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) Has the male been used for breeding before? 2) Are you familiar with assistance techniques? 3) Have you considered having the male collected and her inseminated?
You'd need a second person. Youtube is a useful source. Try "Dog breeding assistance techniques" and similar. Essentially one person will keep the female in a standing position, the other will stimulate the male while he is in a position nearest her hind end. Once prepared, the male is then placed into position at her vulva. Most males will continue efforts to penetrate. Once this happens, ensuring that he does not slip out and a tie is achieved is your best bet at a successful breeding. Be absolutely certain that she is not only standing but flagging him AND that the person responsible for holding the female knows what they're doing with restraint. Some females will become stressed and turn to bite the male, which can blow the chance at him being willing to try again now and in the future.At 2.5 years of age, he may simply be a little too young yet to understand his role.

I would secure a friend and work toward seeing if you can achieve a tie through assistance. If not, AI may be your best bet.
Also, you can contact your vet and see if they are willing to help with breeding. In some cases the male just needs some direction and he will take it from there. In any case, it sounds like someone is going to have to help move the situation forward as he's unwilling or unsure of what to do.
Checking in, Katie. Any luck so far?
