By collecting semen in advance from the stud, and then allowing the pair to copulate normally, gives the breeding pair the experience they need.

Bites are a common problem when a bitch or dog does not want to be near each other, handlers can be hurt in the altercation as well, making breeding a dangerous situation. It isn’t just temperament that can cause a problem, if a bitch becomes aggravated or wants to escape during copulation, her pulling away from a tie can cause injury to the stud that may create mental issues that prevent future breeding, and even permanent physical injury to the dog.
