Dog Reproduction

Dog reproduction varies from human reproduction in a couple of ways. The cycle of dogs is quite different and of course, the size of the litter tends to be quite a bit more than in a human pregnancy.

Like humans, dog reproduction can only occur when the female reaches an age of sexual maturity. Female dogs, which can also be called bitches, will mate only when they are in heat. Being in heat, or estrus, is the period of time when the animal is ovulating. Interestingly, female dogs only have a cycle, on average, every six months. Some can have one every four months or some every twelve months, it really depends on the dog.
