    Soooo another season question since Ive never owned a bitch before. I found some blood on the stairs, just a tiny smear and a tiny bit on Bellas tail but she isnt acting any differently and she isnt swollen and it really is a tiny smear which could be from anything (a bone or something). So would she be obviously different if she was in season and would she be bleeding loads, also no male dogs are paying any interest in her is that normal? I dont want to walk her if she is in season but I also dont want to not walk her if she isnt (my head is spinning now :eek:)

    I'm by no means an expert but Kenzie has just about finished her first season. After the first day she didn't really bleed much at all, there was absolutely no change in her behaviour. All the boys around here are neutered so can't comment on that. She was noticeably swollen though, no doubt about that at all.

    That probably wasn't much help, but was just my experience.

    I doubt if she is in season, often the first sign is either swelling or you notice the bitch licking herself more

    I agree with Rona swelling is usally easily noticed before blood! Just keep an eye just incase :)

    I think she probably isnt then, no licking, no swelling. I wish she would get on with it and have this flippin first one so I can stop imagining how terrible it is:eek:.

Ive discussed it with my oh and we are going to give her one on lead walk a day but its going to be very late and somewhere secluded, shes already desperate for a walk :(.
