I'm in quite a dilemma really as at the beginning of August I bought a bitch puppy for showing, but about a week ago Casper our other male show dog starting being sexual around her to the point that he can't relax.
I took the bitch pup to the vet to see if she is having some kind of early season but she isn't and the advice given was to castrate Casper. However, as he is early in his show career (UK) I don't want to do that as the the rules are I cannot show him unless he's been castrated for medical reasons which isn't the case.
So another person at RingCraft classes said try putting lavender oil on my bitches private bits or something called bitch spray which I'm waiting to see if the vet approves of.
They also suggested studding Casper out to release his sexual energy directed towards the puppy. I just don't know what to do as it isn't about the money for studding and I'm concerned it might make him worse. At the same time I can't and don't want to spay the bitch.
At the moment I'm using my voice to get him away from the bitch pup and giving him lots of praise when he stops what he is doing and moves away. I also praise him when he plays nicely with her or relaxes enough to snuggle up. At times even this method isn't enough and he has a one track mind to the point that I don't know what to do other than restrain him.
Can anyone help please
