Dogs in “heat” a.k.a dogs on their period…………..?

Question by super_star77714: Dogs in “heat” a.k.a dogs on their period…………..?
How long does this last? Do i have to keep my male dog separated from her(even though she is fixed)? What do I do with her? Does she need a “doggie diaper” to keep her from getting blood on things?

Best answer:

If she is FIXED, she does not come into heat!!!!

Super Puppies? A.k.a. “Early Neurological Stimulation”?

Question by Mgn: Super Puppies? A.k.a. “Early Neurological Stimulation”?
Has any one actually tried these exercise with there puppies to create Super Puppies/Dogs???

According to Dr. Carmen Battaglia , The U.S. Military in their canine program developed a method that still serves as a guide to what works. In an effort to improve the performance of dogs used for military purposes, a program called “Bio Sensor” was developed. Later, it became known to the public as the “Super Dog” Program. Based on years of research, the military learned that early neurological stimulation exercises could have important and lasting effects. Their studies confirmed that there are specific time periods early in life when neurological stimulation has optimum results. The first period involves a window of time that begins at the third day of life and lasts until the sixteenth day. It is believed that because this interval of time is a period of rapid neurological growth and development, and therefore is of great importance to the individual.

The “Bio Sensor” program was also concerned with early neurological stimulation in order to give the dog a superior advantage. Its development utilized six exercises which were designed to stimulate the neurological system. Each workout involved handling puppies once each day. The workouts required handling them one at a time while performing a series of five exercises. Listed in order of preference the handler starts with one pup and stimulates it using each of the five exercises. The handler completes the series from beginning to end before starting with the next pup. The handling of each pup once per day involves the following exercises:

o Tactical stimulation (between toes)

o Head held erect

o Head pointed down

o Supine position

o Thermal stimulation.

These five exercises will produce neurological stimulations, none of which naturally occur during this early period of life. Experience shows that sometimes pups will resist these exercises, others will appear unconcerned. In either case a caution is offered to those who plan to use them. Do not repeat them more than once per day and do not extend the time beyond that recommended for each exercise. Over stimulation of the neurological system can have adverse and detrimental results. These exercises impact the neurological system by kicking it into action earlier than would be normally expected. The result being an increased capacity that later will help to make the difference in its performance. Those who play with their pups and routinely handle them should continue to do so because the neurological exercises are not substitutions for routine handling, play socialization or bonding.

Benefits of Stimulation

Five benefits have been observed in canines that were exposed to the Bio Sensor stimulation exercises. The benefits noted were:

o Improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate)

o Stronger heart beats

o Stronger adrenal glands

o More tolerance to stress and

o Greater resistance to disease.

In tests of learning, stimulated pups were found to be more active and were more exploratory than their non- stimulated littermates over which they were dominant in competitive situations.

Secondary effects were also noted regarding test performance. In simple problem solving tests using detours in a maze, the non-stimulated pups became extremely aroused, wined a great deal, and made many errors. Their stimulated littermates were less disturbed or upset by test conditions and when comparisons were made, the stimulated littermates were more calm in the test environment, made fewer errors and gave only an occasional distress when stressed.


If you have, please let me know your results. or if you know any one or any thing about this.

I’m thinking of trying it out on my tea cup yorkie pups but im afraid if something goes wrongs. I love the idea of helping them become strong and healthier by these simple exercises. but does it really work???

Dr. Carmen Battaglia ~ Originally published as “Early Neurological Stimulation” :

I don’t Approve of it very much either since i heard of illnesses but 3yrs ago my mother brought a male yorkies home claiming it was a tea cup sized.
Then a year later brought 2 more females which actually weren’t suppose to be ares but the owners took too long in picking them up and eventually didn’t want them any more. [[thinking about it, There not so tea cup seeing as they grew over the size so there more of a toy sized.]]

My ignorant sister of 23yrs did not listen to me, age of 15yrs or any of us, saying to “keep the male away from the female during and a week after her period.”
the ignorant dumb ass let them go to the back yard together. you would think a 23yr old would be smarter than to let them both out at the same time. and keep them out of the same room. or at least the same bed!! ughhh!

so Any Answers that claim im a breeder and I’m a sicko?. oh yeah way to judge a book by it’s cover. your just as ignorant as my sister.
