But heat can lead to some personality changes in your dog.

Aggression and frustration: The male hormone testosterone is activated when a male enters heat. Cortisol is also activated, which is a lesser-known hormone but equally important.

Cortisol is the main cause of stress in dogs. It causes aggression, frustration and irritability. Dogs can be subject to constant stress, which can cause psychological problems. Dogs who want to be a mother will not allow males into their space. Dogs who are friendly and affectionate with males can become aggressive.

Depression: Dogs that are abandoned can become depressed. Depression can cause behavior changes like stopping eating, crying, fatigue, and howling.

Escape: Because females in heat urinate more often, male dogs will be drawn to the smell of urine and ignore their owners. Even if it means crossing roads, he will seek out the source of this pleasant smell.

Inadequate marking: Dogs who feel that female pheromones exist in the air are more likely to mark. This can cause problems at home because they are more inclined to mark corners than they would if there wasn’t an influx of pheromones.

Confusion is when a dog behaves in a manner that can make it appear that he’s confused or ignores you. This behavior can make us believe our dog is rebellious. It could be an underlying reaction to heat.
