I have a pair of basette hounds, and was hoping for a litter of pups. The male will sniff and lick her but will not try and mount her. She is ready and will stand for him but he don't have a clue. We even put him up on her back and he just looked at us like we were nuts. He is just over a year old and this is her second heat. Any suggestions. The wife is gong to school to be an RN so I told her maybe she should help them because of her training, don't ask what she said cuz I can't post it here.
