Timing and Duration of Vizsla Dogs Heat Cycle

February 21, 2023

When do Vizslas go into heat? They’re all different and the best is to ask about the mother but here’s a list of the dates of my Vizsla’s heat cycles and duration between. Whiskey and Bourbon are from totally different bloodlines.

I’ve gone back to list Bourbon’s heat timing to try and predict future ones so I thought to list them here. Whiskey has an OSS Spay but still goes into heat. It’s harder to pinpoint the exact start and stop for Whiskey because she doesn’t bleed but it’s still very obvious when she is in the middle of her cycle because her personality around other dogs changes so strongly.

I’m missing some dates but I’ve calculated time from birth to first heat, and have more accurate information about Bourbon’s heat cycles (female Vizsla bitch).
