    those are cases unsupervised. You will be in an enclosed area with another young puppy. It wouldn't concern me all that much. You can actually show females in heat AKC to the best of my knowledge.

    Actually the dogs were supervised, it just takes them but 3 seconds to get hooked. The male had slipped out of the room he was enclosed in, my neighor was chasing after him and it took one pump and that was it. I don't know how you could show a dog when in heat, I would think every male in the vacinity wouldn't be able to focus.

    I wouldn't risk it with my female, but that's just me.

    I'm not saying I would show them, but it's doable...by supervised, I mean both dogs contained, and on lead. I've been to puppy class at petsmart, and if she were carried in, with only 1 other little puppy, it's possible, that's all I'm saying. If she chooses not to, or if teacher says no, it's a different story.

    Our neighbours German Sheppard wasn't "unsupervised".

    She was always locked in the house except when out on a leash for a quick pee.

    The males climbed fences and ripped doors open to get to her.

    Also, if Lily were to "tie", it's a legal problem as well as medical for the dog.

    I would not, under an circumstances, bring in in-season girl anywhere. Why take the risk; things can happen quicker than you think. Those pants are definately not chastity belts, even though they may look like it.

    BTW, speaking from experience, don't forget to take the pants off when when you take her outside to do her business. Those crazy girls will not stop to tell you you forgot

    Oh, the joy of having a bitch in heat....
    Nóra is so effecient, she cleans herself so well that we don't have to use dipers or something else. But it's safer to not wear white socks during that period, the tend to get red spotted

    I'm back from the store and got a pair of little denim ones with velcro straps that I think MonieC was talking about, and 2 boxes of pads. The pads have a strip of adhesive down the middle just like ours, but are shorter. She has it on now and is going nuts, poor baby. I guess it will take a while for her to get use to it. She is trying to get it off.

    I am calling the trainer in a few minutes. I am just too afraid to take her while she's in heat, especially after the incident with my Old English. I will just let her sign me up for a class that starts in about 3 weeks. Thanks for all your suggestions and answer to my questions, Wish me luck!!!

    Males will travel great distances to "get at" a female in heat.

    We used to have an intact German Sheppard across the street and so many males that the street would be blocked off to traffic!!!

    Good luck Shay.
    Ironically-- You CAN show a bitch in season at an AKC show-- I've done it. My female surrounded by hundreds (literally) of Intact males--- and do you know-- not one male misbehaved.

    One of my girls keeps herself so clean that I just throw a blanket over the couch and loveseat and we don't bother with the pants. I worry that keeping the pants on too much may cause an infection.
