Female heat cycle?

4 posts in this topic

I have a 15 month old female brittany and as far as I know she has not had a heat cycle yet. Some tidbits here: my dog spends the day in the outside kennel and she comes in and spends the night in the house, she did have a navel hernia repaired "hope this has nothing to do with this" and she is always humping our spayed 5 year old GSP. I know the 1st heat can be lite but I haven't seem it yet. Shouldn't a female dog usually have the 1st heat cycle from 6-12 months? Thanks Rick

Hi Rick,

A female should come into heat around 10 - 14 months and then every 6 months give or take a little. I had one come into heat at 8 months when she was with another female who was in heat. I have also had a female who never did come into heat. After we found her a new home, she came into heat for the first time at 3 years of age.

The dogs first heat cycle is usually pretty light and some females will kept them selfs licked clean so you will not notice the discharge. However her backend will still swell up to at least twice the size of normal and that you should notice.

So 15 months is a little late, but not unheard of.

Thanks for the reply Tom, I am just becoming abit concerned that this female has not had a heat cycle yet "that I have seen", and like I said my dogs come into the house in the evening for all night and than go back out in the kennel for the day. I will wait another month or so and than take her to the vet for an opinion.

    • got time to check it out (finally). All it was was the positive side of the battery has 2 cables that run to it. I found the computer one was closest to battery and the starter one was on the outside. This had to be turned to starter cable first and the computer cable second ????.  Alls well after that. I also had to get a longer bolt in it to make a better connection..

    • Tough game for the Preds.  Seemed like Rinne really let the team down last night.  The was a "Wild" like performance, shut the other team down and let in a couple softies and let the game slip away.

    • Another fantastic week of fishing up in the Northwest Angle!

      Two weeks into the Minnesota season an abundance of saugers are congregating around Little Oak, as well as other small islands near Crow Duck, making for an easy shore lunch spot while staying close to home. Jigging at 18-24 has produced the most fish but it isn’t too early to be pulling spinners.
       
      On the Canadian side, walleyes are more dispersed but very plentiful on main lake points with current anywhere from 15-20 ft. of water, holes remain consistent.  Almost any method is producing fish, gold/yellow/orange jigs with a minnow seems to be the most popular.  The northern pike bite remains strong with many thirty plus fish being seen. 

      We hope to see you soon!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
