In rut (since Tibetan Mastiffs only have one breeding season. Techinically he’s fertile any time of the year, but breeding season is better). So far we’ve not had TO much trouble with the local bitches (though the psychotic GSD female almost got a visit the other day…..), but I HAVE noticed he’s smelling ALOT stronger than usual this past month. As in, he got a bath early cause I couldn’t stand it any more. It COULD just be the antibiotics he’s been on, or maybe he rolled in something extra pungent, but could it be the rut season too? I tried Google, but since most domesticated dogs don’t have a true “breeding season” no one appeared to have an answer. I suppose I could ask his breeder…..
