Heat usually lasts between 2-4 weeks. Early in the cycle, a female dog may not be receptive to male dogs, although some are receptive through the entire cycle. It can be shorter or longer and you'll know the cycle is over when all her vulva returns to its normal size and there's no more bleeding or discharge.

Puppies under six months of age shouldn't stay in a crate for more than three or four hours at a time.

They can't control their bladders and bowels for that long.

The same goes for adult dogs being housetrained.

Physically, an older dog can hold it, but they don't know they're supposed to.

On average, puberty (or sexual maturity) is reached at about six months of age, but this can vary by breed. Smaller breeds tend to have their first estrous cycle at an earlier age, while large and giant breeds may not come into heat for the first time until they reach eighteen months to two years of age.

How long does estrus last? Estrus is the stage when the dog can become pregnant. Although this can vary with each individual, on average a dog will be in heat for 1 Β½ to 2 weeks but this can be shorter or longer.

The estrus cycle has four stages.

The first stage is called proestrus.

This lasts approximately 10 days and it is during this stage that your dog will bleed from the vaginal area.

This is your dog's preparation for pregnancy phase, but she will not want to mate with a male during this time.

Pregnancy in dogs, also called the gestation period, normally ranges from 57-65 days with an average of 63 days. With a planned breeding, you should record the exact date of mating. If there are two matings, make a note of the dates and expect birth to occur between 63 and 65 days later.

Dogs tend to have between 8 and 10 nipples, but some have more, while others have fewer nipples.
βœ”οΈ
Most spay/neuter skin incisions are fully healed within about 10–14 days, which coincides with the time that stitches or staples, if any, will need to be removed. Bathing and swimming. Don't bathe your pet or let them swim until their stitches or staples have been removed and your veterinarian has cleared you to do so.
