Are your females spayed? Just curious. I'm hoping to get a female for a second dog eventually but I keep hearing rumors that females [mostly large breed dogs] have a chance of ending up a little incontinent if they are spayed too early….and you have 4 of them so that makes me wonder if this is a common problem in females [though so far I've only heard the rumor that spaying too early causes slight incontinence].
The above question was asked in another thread, and I didn't want to hijack the thread to answer so I started a different thread.
I've had quite a few female dogs over the years, both Basenjis and Sibes, and the majority were spayed as adults. And yes, older spayed females tend to leak a little; doesn't matter when they were spayed, it's not exactly total incontinence (as it's just a little leakage) and it's got nothing to do with housetraining. It's just something that happens to older, spayed, bitches. But it's easily treated with hormone pills that you end up giving maybe every 5 or 6 days. Certainly no reason to avoid getting a female!!
