Default 1st TIME BREEDER HAS A QUESTION....

Hi I am new here and new to breeding. Right now I ma in the process of breeding my beautiful female Chi (Muffin). 2 nights ago they did their thing and got stuck together for about 30 minutes.....is this when he impregnates her??? Then he didn't want anything to do with her all day yesterday, he would sniff her and then walk off. THEN today, they got stuck together again for about 10 minutes.
I guess my main question would be WHY do they get stuck together and WHAT does it mean????
My Vet never said anything about the 2 getting stuck together, so I am very curious as to WHY this happens.

All replies are greatly appreciated! Thanks.

What you refer to as a knot is called a tie. Yes when they tie together is when the male inpregnants the female he lets off the sperm into the female.


The reason for the tie dogs do not ejaculate like a man does the sperm seeps through the penis at a time so this is the reason for the tie to ensure pregnacy.

Thank you so much for your response!!!! I was so curious about it and even looked for hours on the internet, trying to find info about this. Now I know why I couldn't, because I did not know it was called a "tie". Thanks again!

noty meaning too be rude as I am glad you have come here this is the right place for you to learn , but why did you not reasearch a bit more first and get book of the bitch or something similar , also do you know the diet she need specialy and the folic acid etc she needs to take ? also did you find out if your 2 dogs were perfect speciomens of the breed and true to standard etc first as the only reason to breed should be to better the breed

anyway good luck and please this is JMHO

Ozzysmom-

You know, I just asked a question, do you always try to make people feel stupid for asking a question????? I thought that is what this board was for, or am I wrong??? For you info, yes I do know about the whole diet and Folic Acid thing.

NOW, let me ask you a question......

If people only breed their Chi's to "better the breed" then why do they SELL them for hundreds of dollars????? Why not just GIVE them to good homes??? I mean they were only born to "better the breed" they weren't supposed to be born to make the owners some money. And if you own a male Chi and you breed him with someone elses female, I'm sure you charge the females owner a pretty penny. Just how much would you charge????

Let me just say that I have been breeding and showing for 15 years, I did not want to get into this but since you are so defensive and seem to have a very short temper, not to mention that Ozzymom was simply asking a question and to be frank you are very rude.

Let me shed some light on why I adopt out our puppies: ( I am ONLY SPEAKING for MYSELF not other breeders!!)

It takes a lot of care to raise and show Chihuahuas. More money that you will ever make in selling the puppies. I do not sell my show quality pups they are kept and made champions. When you adopt out the pet quality pups as I do there is a adoption fee of $ 400 that includes, vet checks. shots, worming, crate (even if you are not shipping) Blanket, toys, and food (yes I send a 7lb bag of food home with the new mommies and daddies) and a pack of puppy pee pee pads ( yes I send them home too) And a tube of Nutracal (yes I send that home too). And let me tell you that come to right around the $400 dollars. Now I am not saying that there are people out there just looking to make money. But if you find a breeder that cares alot about their pups as I do then there is NO PROFIT to be made!!!

not to add fuel to the fire but it think she was just asking about the process of getting stuck together.... not many people know what happens to the male's penis during impregnation. even some breeders don't know a lot about anatomy......... obviously she asked her veterinarian questions she mentioned it in the first post. yes getting a book aobut it would have been ideal..... but i think some people tend to read into things as seeing a question like someone is ignorant and doesn't know what they are doing. and others tend to get very defensive. now that said,

here's some info i think you wanted to hear.....

- Os Penis. The objective
of this small bone within
the free extremity of the
penis (glans penis) is to
direct the male's nonerect
penis into the
bitch's vulva and vagina
during the early stages
of mating.
- Bulbus Glandis. This
swelling of the penis is
located toward the rear
end of the os penis. As
soon as the male dog
inserts his penis into the
bitch's vagina and begins
to thrust, the bulbus
glandis enlarges to a firm
spherical shape, resulting
in the so-called "coital
tie." This tie prevents the
male dog and the bitch
from separating immediately
after ejaculation
and may last from 5 to
60 minutes.

My post was in no way rude as KJ said I wass asking a question and even my reply started off "not meaning to be rude.............." I just get a little fed up with people coming on here and have bred their bitch who is not true to the standard etc when there are poor dogs sat in rescues etc and eventually with all these backyard breeders( not that Im implying the poster is a backyard breeder) in a few years chis will not look like chis anymore and it just breaks my heart

thanks so much KJ for sticking up for me this person does not know me and obviously didnt read my post properly this is a discussion board and wouldnt it be boring if we all agreed on the same thing for one us mods wouldnt be needed lol, I stated it was JMHO so sue me ..................
