I breed English Springer Spaniels. She should come on heat every 6-8 mths and she will bleed for around 7-10 days, then the bleeding will change to a clear discharge which can be quite smelly but this smell is what drives the males wild, this will only last about 3-4 days and this is when she will be at whats called tail curling stage and she will be ready to mate. Once you have witnessed a knotting (when the dogs mate and stick together) you can take the pregnancy 63 days from this date (give or take few days as they may have knotted before but you didnt see it) she will bleed again for about another week then stop. Hope this has helped you and good luck
