Hey, I have a beautiful pure English Bulldog (male) and would one day like to get a litter out of him. I'm wondering how this can be done naturally, as nearly all breeders do it artificially. Also, when he was a puppy he had a big teddy he played with. He began to 'hump' it and on occasions, his erection would come right out and wouldn't go back down. I think it was his ejaculation chamber that come out too far (you know those lumps they get when aroused?) If you don't follow I can send a picture of what happened. Is this what happens when a dog and a bitch mate and get stuck together? And will this be a problem if i mate him naturally? Thanks



I'm sorry you had to wait so long to get an answer on your question.


The reason most English Bulldog breeders use artificial means to inseminate and whelp litters is due to the shape of the Bulldog. It is difficult for them to breed due to their barrel like bodies and stout legs so to up the odds of a breeding taking, they opt to use artificial insemination. This is not to say the breed can not do this bulldog came from a litter that was bred and whelped naturally, so they are capable of doing so.


Natural breeding needs to be done during the heat cycle normally between days 9-14 of the cycle. During this time, the female should allow the male to mount. Given this breed, you may have to help the male stay atop the female.


What you are describing in your boy while he humped the bear, they are called the bulbus glandis and this is an absolutely normal part of breeding...they hold the male and the female together until it naturally goes down..this can take 5 minutes to 45 minutes and the dogs should be kept still and calm during this period.
