I have a 10 month old basenji and she just finished up her first heat cycle. Since the beginning of the heat she is no longer playful. We go to a dog park every night and she used to love it and run around with all the other dogs. But now she just sits back and watches the other dogs play and when one comes up to her to play she growls at them and doesn't want anything to do with the dogs. What should I do to encourage her to play again?

I spoke to the breeder and she said I should get her checked out to be safe so that is my plan. I have never had a female so this is all new to me and this might be a dumb question but where do they bleed from when in heat?

My 7 month old female Ripley might be going into heat. Her appetite seems less, she is jumpy and more aggressive when interacting with male dogs which is unlike her. For the past 2 days she has had diarrhea and today there seems to be a little bit of blood in it. Is this just another sign she is going into heat? Or should I take her to the vet?
