We have two Pyrenees family guardians. Our male is 2yrs old

Customer Question

We have two Pyrenees family guardians. Our male is 2yrs old & our female is 4yrs old. We want pups from these two as they are outstanding dogs (great temperament & up to breed standards). We have attempted to assist our male, Kenai, by holding Bella, our female and he just can't seem to get the job done (he ends up spilling his seed & that's that)! Bella is willing and interested,is there anything we can do or just let them work it out? TIA

Probably the best approach you can have is going to be not giving up. Your statement that "he ends up spilling his seed" is likely unfounded only due to the fact that dogs do not work in the same manner that humans work. The fluid that is emitted during attempts to breed is not semen-rich. It is meant to lubricate the female enough to allow penetration to be simple. If you stop efforts while he is producing the pre-ejaculate, he won't have a chance to get the job done. The semen-rich fluid is typically only emitted when a male dog is fully tied to a female. It can take hours of the male producing pre-ejaculate and he can still successfully breed with a female after a tie is achieved. Don't be afraid to let them try for a few hours and see if they are successful. If not, you do always have the option of taking Kenai to the vet, having them collect him manually and then inseminate Bella.
