If you plan on raising a stud dog from puppyhood, never scold the young pup for humping!
You do not want to ever make him fearful of humping, as this will make him skiddish when it is time to breed him.
Get the pup use to your touch all over his body, including his genitals. This can be done during his grooming times.
You may need to actually help your stud dog find the right spot when he is first learning to stud, and therefore, having him use to your touch will not cause him to stop trying if you need to touch him.
At some point you may decide to do artificial insemination, so teaching him to allow your touch from an early age will be helpful.
For an inexperienced male stud dog, it is best to breed him with an older, experienced female. She will teach him the ropes, and not allow him to give up!
When mating dogs, always bring the female to the male, if you do not own both dogs.
However, it will make a huge difference on the male and whether or not he will be able to perform.
Most people believe that when breeding a dog, the male naturally understands what to do, but this is not always true. Many times, a male dog needs LOTS of practice, before he figures out what he is doing.
He gets overly excited and when that happens, he will try his hardest, but still won’t be able to figure it out.
You will often even see him mounting away at the side of her body, her head, and every place imaginable, except where he is suppose to be!
And even if you are successful in mating your dogs, the male dog can tend to “forget” how he did it, when it is time to stud him again!
Although, he will be attentive to her by staying close to her, licking her vulva and ears, and giving her all kinds of loving affection!
Dogs can get hurt during mating, but especially the male dog. The female may bite him, if she isn’t interested. When your Golden Retriever’s tie, the male turns around, and he can sometimes lose his balance, causing both of them to fall.
When a tie is achieved, males lift their leg and turn, so the pair are standing butt to butt.
Sometimes after tying, a female may decide to run off, thereby dragging the male with her. Never allow this.
