I know it varies. I do not remember the first time Kayanne went into heat but that was 12 years ago. Kali is 10+ months right now and still no sign of her heat cycle.

Lilly was right near 11 mos by the time she went in.. She followed in her mothers footsteps. I would ask your breeder and ask when her mom went in.

Unfortunately Rose is in heat now at almost 9 months. It really makes me rethink the spaying - I was going to allow her to go thru two heats and then spay and was really hoping she would be closer to 24 months by then. This really brings a whole new set of questions for me.

It can be anywhere from six months to two years. It just depends upon the girl in question.

They tend to cycle similar to their mothers so checking with the breeder might help to narrow it down a little.

Kea's first one was 8 months, which seemed early, but she was staying at our breeder's for a week while we were out of the country and a few of the girls there were in, so I think that got things going. Her next one was exactly 8 months after that, and we are waiting for cycle number 3 to start in a few months.

They seem to follow their dam's history. Mine are usually 9-12 months, with Emmie the exception at six months...

Lush was 12 months, and her breeder told me way ahead that is typical for her girls.
