If you do not want your female dog to breed during her heat cycle then you must keep her locked inside or isolated from any male dogs. It is also best to keep her locked in an area where the floors are not carpeted to so that her bloody discharge will not stain the carpets.
Which makes the better pet — a male or female dog? The easy answer is it all depends on what you’re looking for.

Eclampsia is a life-threatening complication of pregnancies. A pregnant female can have calcium levels that are dangerously low (hypocalcamia). This condition can lead to shaking or seizures, even heart complications. This is a major emergency that requires IV calcium and fluids.


There are countless genetic diseases, such as hip dysplasia, heart disease and eye conditions. Spaying a female who carries the bad genes is the easiest way to prevent babies with the same problems. Only through reasoned breeding can a breed improve over time.

Again, these are only 10 of the reasons to spay a pet. Spaying also prevents behavioral problems and several other issues. Clients who don’t have their pet spayed often tell us that they couldn’t afford the procedure at the time. Please keep in mind that it could cost 5 or 10 times as much to treat mammary tumors or pyometra. Worse: pyometras often seems to happen after hours (read: at the local emergency clinic on a Sunday), which increases the cost even more.

So please talk to your family vet about your particular pet to make an informed decision. Drs. Foster & Smith Female Pet Bloomers

Another benefit to sterilizing your pet is that he or she will not stray away from home in search of a mate, nor will your female dog attract unwanted attention from neighborhood dogs. Without the urge to mate, your pet is more likely to focus on you, which means a closer bond for both of you.Never allow potential feminine problems such as heat cycles and bleeding steer you away from getting a female pet. If you are apprehensive that she will bleed all over your home when that time comes, consider getting her spayed, which is the ideal thing to do anyway. Once she’s spayed, rest assured that she will not bleed a single drop.By spaying or neutering your pet, you’ll help control the pet homelessness crisis, which results in millions of healthy dogs and cats being euthanized in the United States each year simply because there aren’t enough homes to go around. There are also medical and behavioral benefits to spaying (female pets) and neutering (male pets) your animals.It must be noted, however, that in the competitive world of dog shows and related events, when it comes time to hand out prizes and titles it is male dogs that have traditionally dominated. It is possible that male dogs may be more eager to please human beings and perhaps at the highest levels this helps them overcome the tendency to be more easily distracted. It is also possible that training female dogs for competition is too challenging for many because they are untrainable during the times when they are in heat. Also, male champions are more profitable for serious competitors because they can be bred out continuously, whereas female dogs can usually only have puppies once a year. Perhaps things would be quite different if spaying and neutering were the norm for competitive dogs, but of course this is not the case.
