    Be patient she will come in. I have had females go as long as 2 1/2 of years of age before the first heat cycle. It will be when you don't want it, you a week before hunting season.

    At 14 months, I wouldn't worry at all. At 3 maybe a little more concern, but still not unheard of in working dogs.

    Most of ours come in between 18-20 months it seems right when they are ready to start running derbies. Always convenient timing too!

    For my dog is was 15 months and the week of the first of three straight trials within 2 hours of the house. Two of them were less than an hour away.

    I have a 14 month old, and she has not come in yet. I expect it about the time duck season gets good.....

    To successfully initiate a heat cycle I suggest the following. Enter a trial or hunt test under judges you like on grounds you love. Make sure the canine sees you typing in the entry & entering your credit card information. Abracadabra a full blown heat cycle!!!
