Hi Sir or Madam,
My name is Jane. I've worked professionally in both the health and behavioral fields with dogs for over 18 years. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.
I need to ask you some questions to determine what the problem might be. It will take me 30-45 minutes to type up a response as long as I'm still online when your responses come in.
When did she first go into heat?
Is she still swollen?
Is she holding her tail to the side?
Are you all watching them?
How long is the females owner keeping her there?
Is he smaller than her?
