Thanks for the replies! Think I will be staying home with the dog as I don't want to cause stress for any of the animals.

I have two boys who were neutered at six months but when a foster pup came into season they absolutely knew.
We had to keep them entirely separate as you have the situation where the males try to get to the female, but also a few days when the female is desperate to find a male.
It's very stressful! Even if the males are neutered you don't want them to learn how to start humping. The biggest risk is that the two males will fight, and this can have long term consequences.

its still in their nature to try and hump her, just means no puppies. I'd advise to keep her in the room with you if this is an option.

If my neutered boy is anything to go by, they will still be interested and likely try and hump her, which she will probably rapidly get fed up with. If she's in another room it's likely they will try and get to her.

Are there any friends or relatives without male dogs she could stay with?

Hi. My dog has just come into season (we are getting her spayed after her first season) and we are due to go visit family for a wedding at the weekend. We were planning on staying with our dog with family, but they have two neutered males, I believe they were neutered at 6 months and are around 3 and 8 years old (the males, mine is 9 months). Would it still be ok for her to stay with the two other dogs? I know nothing can happen but I don't want to cause stress for any of the dogs. Otherwise I will stay home and husband and daughter will go to the wedding and visit family by themselves. Thanks!
