    A Doggy Question

    Hello everyone

    just a question about dogs. Does anyone know how many times a year they are in heat and how long it lasts for. My sister and i are looking after a Rottweiler Lab Cross and would like to know as she is not spayed and has come on to heat.

    Anyone have any hints or tips?

    Re: A Doggy Question

    A female dog is monoestrous and goes into heat typically twice every three years, although some breeds typically have one or three cycles a year. The proestrus is relatively long at 5-7 days, while the estrus may last 4-13 days. With a diestrus of 7-10 days, a typical cycle lasts about 3 weeks followed by about 150 days of anestrus.

    Why is it that people are so reluctant to use the correct term? Come on, "bitch" isn't offensive if used in the proper context, you know.

    I'm really disappointed in this thread, thought it would be nothing to do with animals and far more interesting than this

    That would have to be how I'm feeling at the time Of course comfort would have to be taken into consideration as well.
