from humans, or any other animals, in that regard ?)
Sorry to ask these questions of a new person on this board
(welcome, by the way), but can I also ask why you choose
to work with a[ny] breed of dog that "does not mate naturally" ?
Always seems odd to me, when people want to do that.

( 9 days into a heat is considered a little early though every dog is slightly different.) She may be late in spiking or you may be offering a male that she can sense is not right for her.
Remember before we started interfering in animal breeding only the very best, healthiest and best suited males were allowed by the females to mate with them.
Now a day we force females into taking a male not of her choosing (Like a pre arranged marriage to some guy you have never met before)
And if she refuses they use either rape stands or AI to force the mating.
If i had it my way, we would not be allowed to AI any breed of dog. I know that would make a lot of people upset, but instead of looking back at frozen studs who are long dead, people would have to look forward at the dogs available to them in the here and now.
Look at the thoroughbred horses, no AI allowed at all, only natural breeding. (Not that there are not a lot of people interfering with the breeding pair but at least the horses get to have sex.)
