First heat cycle in dogs can occur at the age of 4-18 months with an average of 6-8 months depending upon breeds. A female dog can come in to heat two times in a year. Heat cycle in dogs can last for average of 3 weeks. Vets recommend to breed your dog after two years of age because some fitness tests are possible after this age.

Proestrus is first stage of canine heat cycle. At this stage, vaginal bleeding and swelling of vulva takes place. This period can last for an average 10 days. Female dogs does not allow males to come close for mating at this stage. Second stage is called estrus during which mating takes place. Ideal time for mating in dogs is between 11-15 day starting from the first day of bleeding or when your female dog  show flagging.

Many reports say days 7-10 in her cycle, so a week after the bleeding begins. The female dog will be more willing to accept a mate at this time. She should be at least two years old, and vet checked to ensure she is big enough and healthy enough to carry a litter.

The gestation period in a female dog lasts sixty three days which is roughly nine weeks. A female dog's heat cycle appears every six months and it lasts twenty one days or three weeks. The best breeding time is just three days during this period and these days can be determined by taking the dog to a vet for a 'premate' test.

No. If you are even asking you have a long way to go. We always risk death when we breed but it is even more likely if you breed on first heat because your girl is still growing and the pups and your girl end up not getting what they need. You should use the time to consult your vet, get a mentor, and do plenty of independent study on responsible breeding and begin to learn your breed inside and out. It's not as simple as it first appears by FAR. Here's some resources for you to start with. Good luck.
