Male canines have amazing senses of smell and can detect a female in heat from up to three miles away. Dogs have territorial boundaries and can generally detect any intact females within those bounds.
While a dog is in heat, menthol spray can help hide its odor. These sprays can significantly control your female's smell while also calming your male.
Apparently, menthol spray is meant to be sprayed on your female dog. It is recommended using it on both of your pups, though. Indeed, if your male dog smells like menthol, he won't be able to sense your female.
