I have a 9 month old female plott hound, and I want to breed her with my other hound, but I am new to having a female. I would like to know how long they are in heat at a time, and how often they come into heat? and what is a good age for her to have her first litter? Thank you

Average heat cycles are 21 days, twice a year. Breeding should only occur after 2 years of age and after health testing has been done. This insures fully formed joints and a dog that is mentally ready to be an adult.
