Bella had her first heat while we were at our cabin on vacation. I was surprised that she would have it so young. Wasn’t bad at all....she bled minimally and didn’t need the diapers we rushed out to buy after she left traces of blood on bedding. Didn’t last long either so just wondering if that is normal. She sure has calmed down ALOT since .... kinda strange that I have such an amazing, calm, obedient little girl after going through some crazy toddler times with her right before. Anyone else have a golden with an early heat?

It’s about 3-4 weeks from start to finish. So if you’re still within that period you need to keep an eye on her. All dogs can be different. My 2 yo went through her first at 8 months. My puppy will be 8 months Saturday. Who knows when for her?

It is not unusual for the first heat to be 'light'! But as noted above she still is at risk if any male finds her....so watch her close...
