It can be a little different per dog. They are ready when their progesterone is right.
We pretty much keep them away from all males 4 months and older with 24 hour supervision the whole time to be safe since you don't want any accidents. Count on about a month but at least 7 to 10 days after the swelling goes down and the bleeding stops and then you can evaluate again. More detailed explanation of their cycle in the links below.
If you were considering breeding the question indicates you aren't ready quite yet as that is a basic and you should know that and a lot more to be a good breeder and breed responsibly. You would want to probably skip this one and continue your research before breeding. You have nothing to lose and a whole lot to gain by making sure you have an idea of what you are doing and why and actually having pups that were worth having (not to mention how not knowing effects them and your girl). Breeding before you are ready (much less them) is just BYB/puppy mill practices and breeding and results. You probably don't want that for your pups.
You are creating lives (and intentionally risking them) that you have a lot of responsibility for how their futures turn out. The majority of the responsibility, their health, their homes, their behavior, whether they end up in the shelter 8 or 9 times out of ten (with millions and millions in shelters) even though they are no longer in your home (and you probably have no idea) it can almost all be traced back to something you as their breeder may or may not have done or known most of the time. It is important and worth it to make sure you are doing things the right way to try and minimise all of that. Here are some links to get you started. Good Luck whatever you decide.
