If she is year (or older) then that's when you should consider bringing in a male. It would also help if you bring in the male BEFORE her "mating heat" because she would do better knowing the dogs first and she will be more willing.

This is very hard to determine as it varies so much. Once the signs of heat start it could be one day to as long as three weeks before she allows breeding. The best strategy for this is to put the dogs together every other day. However if you don't have the male this is inconvenient. The most popular solution to this problem is for one of the owners to hold the other dog until they start and are done breeding. Good luck!

It's never really good to breed your dog in their first heat, their litters will be small, usually around 4 pups. In the second heat it is much safer to breed your dog. If you never plan to breed your doxie, get her fixed soon. The longer you wait, and the more litters your doxie has, the more susceptible they are to getting ovarian cancer.

Does a dachsund go into heat at six months & how long does it last?  I'm new at this.  A friend wants me to hold her in my house since he has two males (one fixed) and another male dachsund who he will mate her with, but not during her first heat.

don't breed. you don't want more dogs ending up in the shelter or worst, DEAD!
even if you can provide and find good homes for them, it is still not a good idea.let those who can provide a dog with a good home get theirs from the shelter. you will be helping to save a life and also they will and cannot breed their dogs since they will be spayed/neutered. this will help save many other lives. if you want puppies, go adopt some from the shelter. there are so many unwanted pups out there and doing this will not only save a life, it will keep lives from being destroyed. you should really be doing your part to help prevent the death of other dogs. And if you don't care, that proves you're selfish and only think about what you want. people like that shouldn't be dog owners at ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

save a life and do your part!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
