    seasons are usually 6 months from the start of the last but this can vary.

    Don't mean to hijack your thread but on the subject of seasons.... my girl had a litter on her last season and 8 months later has finally come into season.

    Is the season after a litter usually heavier or different. usually it is just the odd spits and spots. This time it is heavy, all over the inside of her legs and all over her fur.

    Can't wait to get her spayed!

    poppy our oldest border who is 3 half, had her 1st season at 7 months comes in season every 6 months, meg the baby who is now 14 half months old had her 1st season at 8 months and i was hoping she would come in season with Poppy and get it all over with together like they did at christmas, but no sign of meg yet as Poppy has been in season for a week now, so seasons can vary, i know a lady who has a border and hers comes in season every 4 months which is a nightmare when your showing your dogs.

    What's you girl called, any photo's

    It does vary with bitches when they come into season, Ive had them start a season at 5mths and at 13mths, but the seem to regulate after that and come in at around 6mths later, just be aware tho that what seems to be a season in between could be pyrometra so always get advice from you vet if this happens.

    Mia our Cocker Spaniel is just over 1 year, she had her first season in March which was just a light discharge that lasted almost 4 weeks then to our surprise she came into her second season 3 months later!!! This was alot heavier than the first but only lasted 2 weeks. We were very surprised as we were expecting the next season to be 6 months apart but have been told some dogs can have a 2nd season very close to the first.
