  4. Yes. What you are seeing is the bulb of the penis, which enlarges when the male dog has an erection. This is 1/2 of what causes the tie when dogs copulate.

    The bulb of the penis slips inside a sphincter on the bitch. Once it is constricted in this manner, it swells rapidly, tying the two together until mating is finished.

    The bulb of the penis will be seen in the sheath near the base of the shaft.

    Erections like this occur in both intact and neutered dogs, and are of no concern.

    I wouldnt give yourself a false sense of security, females have the same if not more problems as the males
