When Will Our Puppy Go Into Heat?


When can we expect our 8 mo. old English Springer Spaniel to go into heat?.    ~ Nancy Abner




She may have been in heat already. Six months is when most dogs go into heat for the first time. Sometimes the first heat is a "silent" heat, where they don't have any bleeding. She will go back into heat every 6-7 months.
