Why Do Dogs Get Stuck Together When Breeding
THIS IS AWESOME! My favorite dog trainer and dog whisperer of all time has just released a free video online explaining how to eliminate 94% of all unwanted behavior in ANY dog. Her name is Krista Cantrell and I absolutely LOVE the way she teaches. Click on the video to watch. You'll be glad you did...
Have you seen mating dogs? Apparently, dogs are not fussy with regards to their breeding locations. In places where dogs are allowed to roam, these animals will be seen mating on the streets, on the beaches and practically anywhere. A female dog in heat has a distinct smell that announces her availability.
A bitch in heat will be followed by its suitors. A bitch that allows her vulva to be sniffed and licked by a male dog is a cue that she is ready to be mated. The bitch will show her willingness to be mated to the favored male dog. Flagging or the holding of the tail to one side to show the rear end is the female dog’s signal to the chosen male that she is receptive. Unlike male dogs that are always eager to copulate, female dogs are kind of choosy. Bitches will only be receptive when they are in the estrus stage of the reproductive cycle.
If the bitch is ready to be bred she will allow the male to mount her from behind. The tail that is held on one side will give the male dog easy access to the vulva. Once mounted, the dog’s member will penetrate the vulva. Canine copulation is different from human’s as a dog’s member does not have to be stiff to be able to penetrate the vulva. Penetration is achieved because a small bone inside the member called baculum makes the member stiff. The erectile tissues of the member will be filled with blood after penetration is achieved. Due to the swelling of these bulbus glandis tissues the member will be trapped inside the vulva . This is the reason why dogs get stuck together when mating.
The male dog will swing the legs over the other so that they will be facing opposite directions while staying connected at the rear ends. This position known as the mating tie ensures the impregnation of the bitch. The dogs will stay connected for about 30 minutes and will only be separated after the male has fully ejaculated the sperms and the prostatic fluids. Being stuck together will ensure that the sperm will be delivered into the canal. The distinct smell a bitch in heat emits encourages other dogs to try their luck.
By being stuck together while mating, the dogs will ensure that the copulation will not be interrupted by the other dogs that surround the bitch.
