    of your bitch coming into season, molly is now 13 months and has not yet had her first season i expected to see some swelling first. this morning she was licking herself, something she very rarely does ive had a look and cant see anything different, got some white toilet paper and dabbed the area and it wasnt red but a browny colour could this be the start.

    some dogs miss the usual one at around 6 months, (my shih tzu did), yes they do lick and clean that area all the time, then they start to swell, some dogs swell alot and some a little, you will know the difference to what she was like before and now. If you have a male dog in your house, you will definatly know as the male will be all over here, and she will eventually tease him and then in the end she will stand proud for him to mount her. Yes sometimes it is bright red and it can be a brownish colour.

    I f i can just mention that her behaviour over i would say the last week has gone from being very clingy wanting to come onto the furniture to us something we have never allowed her to do, to being quite aloof, i do think ive heard that this can happen as well.

    I know this is probably a daft question but I don't know about bitches as I have a dog - how long are they in season for?

    Dixie became a little grumpy with her 1st season. She fell out with her best doggy pals (females) and cleaned herself loads.
    She was a complete b1tch for the entire 3 weeks, could not let our friend bring her dog round as Dixie just wanted to eat her!
    Her raining went out of the window too.

    So glad I got her done before she came into season again!
