Why do dogs get locked after mating?

Dogs get stuck during mating because of a process called a copulatory tie. The male dog has an organ called the bulbus glandis, which is responsible for keeping him tied up with the female. The dog breeding tie basically keeps the semen secured inside the female dog.
