Interestingly, if you have a male stud dog, you will often see them do something called a ‘love dance’, referring to the male’s movement when near a bitch in season.
One of our first stud dogs, Captain Jack, was renowned throughout the U.K’s pug breeders for his amusing moves. After sniffing a bitch in heat, Jack’s head would raise, and his ears pin back, and like a child playing hopscotch, he would skip throughout the garden, with not a single care in the world.
The bitch should also show signs of ovulation; upon stimulating the area around the vulva, her tail should move from left to right (dependant on the position of stimulation). When presented with a male, she should stand for him.
