How soon can you breed a female dog?

Estrus, commonly called coming into heat, is the time of ovulation when the bitch can become pregnant. Bitches usually come into heat at about 6-12 months, then approximately every 6 months after that. Bitches should not be bred until at least their second heat to allow them to mature.

Will my dog get pregnant the first time she mates?
Because there would be no way to determine which male dog sired which puppies, an accurate record of the breeding would not be possible. It is possible, and even likely, that your female became pregnant, even without a tie during mating, as long as the male ejaculated prior to withdrawal.
How long are dogs fertile after bleeding?
After about 9-10 days, the bleeding will become more watery, or stop. It is at this time your female will, most likely, be at her most fertile. This proestrus stage can last as long as 20 days in some dogs. So the end of bleeding can be a more useful indicator of peak fertility.
How many days will a female dog let a male mount her?

Do dogs get pregnant every time they tie?
However, although most fertile matings do result in a tie, it doesn’t always happen, especially if the happy couple are interrupted half-way through. In these cases, however, the dog may still have impregnated the bitch with enough sperm to get her pregnant.
Can a 6 month old puppy get a dog pregnant?
Your dog can get pregnant during the very first heat, or estrus cycle. Though most dogs experience estrus around 6 months of age, some small breeds can go into heat at four months old, so it won’t be long before your little princess is able to have pups of her own!
