Default Leaving female chi with a male chi... both are NOT fixed. Advice Please!!!

I am planning on leaving my little Vida with a friend who has two dogs. One of his dogs is an unfixed male. Also my little Vida is also not fixed. What type of precautions should I be taking??? She is NOT in heat. But I have heard that a female chi could go into heat just by being around a unfixed male.

I am a bit rather nervous about the whole situation, I mentioned to my friend that maybe it be best to keep Vida in her kennel at night and at unsupervised times. Is that necessary? What safety precautions should I take to ensure no accidental pregnancy happens? Should I get her doggie diapers? request they keep them apart during unsupervised times? Or is there anything else I can do?

Advice please?

I would absolutely insist on keeping them separated when not supervised. Of course, I would insist on that with my dog in any new place with dogs he is not already good buddies with. How long will she be with your friend? That could make a difference as far as what else should be done.

She will be staying there for about 4 days. Thanks for the advice so far

IF she is not in heat, she can't get pregnant. That won't deter the male from trying to hump her, but she should fight him off. I'd rather see her in her kennel when not watched.

Even if her season is due, she won't be at the fertile stage in four days. As Susan says, if she is not in heat she will not be at risk. I have entire dogs and bitches, the bitches only come into season every six months or so despite being around the entire males.
When was her last season? If her next one is due I would ask your friend to be extra vigilant, but a bitch in season is of minimal interest to a dog until she ovulates and is at the fertile part of her cycle. This is about a week after the beginning of the season.
