Different Stages in the Female Dog�s Life

Different Stages in the Female Dog�s Life

The same as with any other being, bitches go through different stages in their lives, each one perfectly defined and differentiated from the other, and it is convenient to know each one in order to be able to correctly satisfy the needs of each of these stages.


In toy, small and medium-sized breeds, this particular stage starts after the short period of transition that coincides with the presentation of the first heat; however, that is not the case with big or giant breeds, which are still considered teenagers after the first and second heats. In any case, the adult dog will normally behave more civilized and making good use of her good manners which have been previously taught to her. Dogs do not go through menopause which means that, unless their uterus or ovaries have been extracted, she will keep on having her heat cycles in more or less regular intervals. It is important that the owner writes down the exact date when the heat cycles start and end (and even today's in which she is especially ready to accept the male), which will be very useful in order to calculate the following heat cycles, especially when you notice that your dog cycles regularly.
