My grandpa does field trials with his dog which means he is intact. He was over for thanksgiving and a couple of days ago Bayley went into heat. I thought this was kind of early. She is just now around 9 month old give or take a week. Is this early or right on time? It was completely unexpected. Our past experiences is its usually past a year before they start. We prefer the dog matures completely with all parts intact and natural hormones flowing, have a cycle then continue with being spayed. (everybody has their own opinions, and this is just one my parents, and I agree with). I'm sure it was caused because he was over but I guess just a little confused.
Usually she sleeps outside, but she is 100% inside and when she is completely supervised. Also not going on walks since there is multiple handsome men in the neighborhood, until she is out of her cycle. I am just really confused thats all anybody have anything?
