I doubt that your GD will give you problems. Regarding the heat cycle: I would roll up my rugs for the days she is bleeding or limit her range outside the carpeted areas and maybe crate her more. Avoid contact with intact male dogs and especially off leash and stray dogs. They are very persistent.
Your vet will probably advice you to spay her. Also many give them their booster vaccinations or their first Rabies while being spayed but that is another stressor on their system.

WVGSD I have indoor dogs and have always had males and females together - spayed/neutered and intact. The neutered males know that my female is in heat, but they don't get crazy. They were all neutered late in life due to AKC show or rescue status, so they had time to reach sexual maturity. My female or females wear a "pants" garment for the middle week of the heat cycle and it has never been an issue in fifteen years for me. If you do have concerns, perhaps your male Dane could gon on a "vacation" for a while with friends or family while she has her one heat cycle?

Breitbach343 So we call our vet office and our vet was out of the office but another vet gave us the results from the test. They found nothing out of the ordinary except for her HP levels. She continues to appear normal, no messes, peeing normal, and acting normal. Our vet was supposed to call us today but didnít. Iím going to call him tomorrow and get a more in depth reading from our test results. If everything is fine and she seems fine, we are just going to continue on with what we are doing because something is helping. If Now I just hope we can fix her before her first cycle. Haha thatís if the vet gives us the clear for fixing her. Donít want to cause another problem.

GatorDog My female Malinois puppy had issues with urinating, but never came back with test results indicating a UTI. We switched her to raw at 14 weeks and she's been fine ever since. Hoping it does the same for your girl!

kbella999 Hope she continues to do better. Raw diet helped my dogs too but with other issues.
