Normally a tie lasts 10-30 minutes. It needs to be long to make sure the sperm gets passed to the female as dog ejaculate is in 3 parts prewash, sperm, postwash.
If they have been tied for more than 20 minutes you can turn the male around so he is back up over the female's back and give him a little boost in the bum to push him in a little. This should let the female relax her grip allowing the male to disengage in the next few minutes.
Avoid touching abdomens or tactile stimulation of the dogs as this can increase tie time.
Hope this helps you!
