Hi, I can help you with your question today.
In dogs, heat cycles occur approximately every six months.
Each dog is different, so hers could be a bit earlier or later. Not something we can plan on with certainty at this point.
In the future, after several heat cycles, you should be able to predict more regularly when her heat will be.
Do you intend to breed her?
OK. Unfortunately, there is no reliable method to disguise a bitch in heat.
They must be kept separate, and I always recommend using two barriers (e.g. door and a gate, or two gates)
When is your holiday planned?
Are you asking if he will stop trying to mount her?
Yes, he will not try to mount her every time he sees her. His actions were influenced by her pheromones.
As her hormones change throughout her cycle, the release of those pheromones will cease.
Both of them should go back to their previous behaviors.
Yes, it could take time for the scent to go.
Also, there are some preservatives in pet shampoo which can be similar to the pheromones, and he may have recognized something like that on the other female.
So, it's hard to say what was confusing him.
The female pheromones are released in the urine, anal gland secretions, and vulvar secretions.
I haven't heard of those before! What are they supposed to do?
There was something that was available in the past called Cheque Drops, let me see if that is still available.
It was supposed to suppress a heat cycle.
Great. It appears that these products should be available to you.
