How long do I wait before taking my puppy outside? Vets recommend waiting until 10-14 days after your puppy's last vaccination booster – usually at around 14–16 weeks of age – before introducing them to the wonders of local parks, beaches and walking trails.

On average, puberty (or sexual maturity) is reached at about six months of age, but this can vary by breed.

In the event that you want to breed your dog or prevent a pregnancy, there are noticeable signs that can alert you that your dog is in heat: First stage (proestrus).

Your dog's vulva will look swollen or larger than normal.

This is usually accompanied by a bloody vaginal discharge and she may urinate more often.

✔️
For most females, the best time for breeding is between the tenth and fourteenth day of estrus. However, some females ovulate as early as the third or fourth day or as late as the eighteenth day. Blood tests or vaginal cytology will assist in determining the best period for your dog.
