I've never had a dog before so I don't know what to expect when it comes to her first heat. I've had friends tell me it's horrible and male dogs will be knockin on our door, but my boyfriend seems to think it won't be too bad. I'd personally like to have her spayed (she's 4 months old). I just wanted to hear some opinions or stories so I know what I'm in for if we don't spay her. Also, I've heard six months is a good age to spay, is this correct? Thanks in advance for the help!
