Trying To Breed My Aussie
by Sue Hodgman

First, yes, I am a 1st time backyard breeder, I have a wonderful Aussie (she is 3) that we want to breed to a Border Collie. But she wants nothing to do with the male. She will not stand for him and yet she is in full standing heat. (We have a mixed breed intact male at home and she stood for him when he was at her hip.)
Currently she is in the house and they are not together. Patty is a awesome cattle dog and the male is also a great working dog. We have all the puppies spoken for if she will take. But I am confused as to how we can encourage her to allow him to mount. IF anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.
