how do you know when a girl is in heat?
Re: how do you know when a girl is in heat?
a female dog can come into heat just about anytime after her 6 month of age.the larger the breed, the longer it can take. it can happen at any age from 6 month to 18 month in alot of bitches for their 1st heat.
you will notice her vulva larger and puffier than normal.you may see smoe spotting. some are very clean, some are very messy.usually, if you have other dogs, you will notice more sniffing and interst in her vulva area as she gets closer to coming or in heat.
i wouldn't worry yet. she is just 12 months.might be a late bloomer. it also helps if you ask the breeder what ages his females came into heat for the first time.
mine average between 9 mos-12mos of age for their first heat.
and come in season every 6 mos or so.
