Will my female boxer dog breed with the male when not ovulating?

Amanda J: Will my boxer female breed with the male if she is not ovulating?
Our boxer is in heat. We bred her with a beautiful male boxer this weekend. As far as we know they locked up three times. I noticed before we bred her that she was not bleeding but her genatila was swollen about 3 times its normal size. The male dog stayed for two days and we know for sure they locked up three times. The male boxer left Sunday afternoon and on Monday I noticed that our female was bleeding a little. Does this mean that we need to breed her again before she goes out of heat? My real question is " Will my female boxer let the male breed her before she was ovulating? I thought that if she wasn't ready to recieve, she wouldn't let him do anything. However she was all for it! LOL From what I have understood in the past untill the female is ready to get pregant (usually the second week of heat) she will not let the male breed her. Do I have anything to worry about when it comes to the pregancy not taking?

she will because if they are not fixed, naturally in the wild they send out a mating signal weather or not they are ovulating. so because she is not fixed she sent him the signal that she was not.

Usually no, however every dog is an individual and some don’t read the book.

In my breed at least, it’s quite common to NOT get puppies from a successful natural breeding.

I submit that if you need to ask such a basic question in a forum like this, that you need to do a LOT of research in the near future.

dogs ovulate over a period of days, it's best to do a swab to find out when the dog is fertile,~~ they will breed, even if they have not ovulated.
about 4 weeks from now, get an ultrasound and you will know for sure whether she took or not.
you said bleeding a little, what color was the blood? color can be a pretty good indicator of the dog's fertile time…

I agree not to breed just to make a buck…there are so many,low quality animals out there with horrible pedigrees and genetics.SO dont male it worse for us! However there are a few of us who do breed for the purpose of contributing,to a specific breed like the once exstinced olde english bulldog.if it wasnt for us breeders there wouldnt be those happy families loving there breed of choice.YES I SAID CHOICE.Not everyone wants a mut.Theres alot of “pro ” abortion peaple willing,to kill a fetus, but jump on a person for not wanting a pound mut.what a joke!if you wanna do something mut lover hold back on your starbucks and cigerette fund and feed the dam muts yourself! Get a life.NO BODY WANTS A MUT!

    Haven't you noticed how mant dogs are at animal shelters already? I know that a lot of them are older and younger dogs i know this because i'm a volunteer at my local animal shelter. my local animal shelter just had 8 german shepherd puppies brought in because a breeder couldnt find homes for them. we dont need anymore dogs in shelters so personally i dont really think you need to be breeding you dog!

    You should be asking your mentor this... or talking to one of the instructors at a reproductive seminar you attended... or calling your b*tch's breeder.. or asking one of the longtime members of the local kennel club you belong to.... or.. heaven's forbid... READING a book on reproduction.

    You probably should have had a smear done to determine how cornified the cells are.

    Some b*tches are "easy" when in season and will stand even when they are not ready.

    She will not let them breed until she is ready. The bleeding occurs first, and then her vulva gets swollen. Even if they did lock it doesn't necessarily mean that she will become pregnant; however, the chances are very high.
