Want to know more about your female dogs first season? The first season most commonly occurs between 6 – 23 months of age with most dogs having their first season by the age of 14-months. The time frame can vary between dog breeds with smaller breeds sometimes occurring at a younger age whilst large breeds occurring at a later age. How long does it last for and why do they act differently? Seasons last for approximately 3-weeks but can be shorter or up to 4-weeks. There are approximately 4-phases to a season with the first phase being the absence of the season or any hormones associated with it. However, towards the end of the first phase the body will begin to prepare itself for the season cycle.
