Technically, you can not "stop" him.
You can lock him up in a crate, or room where she is not around.
You should look into spaying as well. Will add more years to your pup's life.

Put a "doggie diaper" ion the female, and keep both dogs several rooms away from each other. There should be several strong, closed doors between them.

You can get him to stop by neutering him & spaying her...NOW.
Well DUH. Haha, what did you expect?
But put a diaper on your female, keep her indoors and only take her outside on a leash to potty. Take a large stick with you in case wandering unaltered male dogs make their way to your home. Keep your male away from her and get him neutered. Then he will no longer show interest in the female.
The third week (beginning of) is when the female is at her most fertile and willing to be mated (depending on the female's cycle). Most breeders and owners recommend having the stud dog or male dog away from the home, since the male dog will stop at nothing to get to the female. If you don't wish to have a litter of pups with the female, I suggest getting her spayed. Spaying will stop the female from getting uterine infections in future! Likewise, if you have no intentions of breeding the male, do the same. It's a lot simpler to get a male dog neutered than the female, as the older the bitch is, the more complications can arise.
Other than sending the male dog away till the season is over, there is very little to suggest, aside from bathing the female and cleaning any furniture she lies on after her season has ended. Hope that helps :)
