Most bitches break when they change yards for some reason.

Having another bitch in the yard that's in heat MIGHT bring her in, especially if it's a kennel mate. Vitamin B12 has brought a few of mine into heat years ago but it never seemed like a full season. 

As BM said, nature knows best, better not to force it

I have kennelled a friends bitch in heat next to mine and it has worked once in the past.

I'd still be treating her as if she's in heat. You'd often see bitches as they get older or have had a few litters already that there heats don't seem as full on as younger bitches but as a day or two passes there bleeding again and have actually been in heat the whole time. I've seen this before more than once and the bitches have been bred successfully.  But who knows may have been a false heat but in all honesty I've never had much experience of the whole false heat carry on in the first place and I've been around brood bitches a long time. Is the bitch in question pushing on a bit or had a few litters shane?

She will be in a week today if she is having a proper season so I’ll try her with the dog anyway he will soon tell me. She’s had a couple of litters she would be 6/7 at a guess. Hopefully she is in right I was really looking forward to this mating

If she's after staying swelled up I'd nearly say she's still in heat. She'll be able to tell you in a few days if she starts to stand for a dog. Fingers crossed

      Looking to get a new screw together spade done for this season, just looking for ideas how to connect the two, iv got a lad waiting to do the work just need to get the bits for him. 
      I know it’s never gonna be as strong as a solid spade but seen as I’m paying for the work been done I want it as good as possible any ideas would be great and any pics to show the lad would be even better thanks

      For those not already aware, Alison Johnstone MSP (Scottish Green Party) has tabled a Private Member’s Bill, which if approved would have a severe, negative impact on all forms of hunting with dogs (including terrierwork). It is presently out for public consultation and that consultation period ends on 15th September 2019, which is less than a month away. It’s essential that you and as many other likeminded individuals as possible respond before that date.
      Before responding you are advised to read the comments and notes of guidance provided by the Scottish Countryside Alliance and/or Scottish Association of Country Sports. These can be found at: https://www.countryside-alliance.org/getattachment/cd8b72ad-d577-4523-bbcb-5b19a6e89461/Alison-Johnstone-Consultation-Countryside-Alliance-Response_.pdf?lang=en-GB and   https://www.sacs.org.uk/media/uploads/cat-252/banning-fox-and-hare-control-in-scotland-sacs-consultation-guidance-for-members.pdf
      The survey is also available online and can be completed at: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/WildMammals/
      Be sure to complete the survey in full, including names and addresses. And no matter how frustrating, or ridiculous you may find some of the proposals, please remember “courtesy at all times”. There's no extra points for belligerence, or rudeness, the purpose of the exercise is to improve awareness, NOT to make any more enemies than we already have.
      Kindest Regards - Barrie
