Dogs go in to heat between 5 and 12 months, depending on the breed and the individual dog. However, you will want to take your dog to the vet to make sure she is healthy enough to breed and to also determine if she has any genetic disorders which she could pass on to her puppies (in that case you would not want to breed her). It may be that she will never be in the proper condition to produce puppies.

However since you are asking this question I suggest that you do considerably more research on your own before breeding your dog. Only very few dogs should be bred, and just because you have a female dog that is able to have puppies doesn't mean she needs to.

You may also want to research the health benefits of spaying her. If you love your dog you have to consider if you are willing to risk her health and safety. Will all the puppies find good homes? Do you have the money to care for her and the puppies if something goes wrong?

The vast majority of calves won't be of age to be bred or considered ready to be bred. By the time these calves are ready to be bred they are no longer considered or even called calves. A heifer is ready to be bred by the time she's 15 months of age. Bulls are ready to be bred by the time they are around 12 months of age. But note that sexual maturity differs with every breed, most notably between Jerseys and Brahman cattle.

It's just like knowing when to put the bull out with the cows: When they're not pregnant and are ready to be bred. Most often it will be the cow herself that will tell you when she is ready to be bred, but you have to judge when the right time would be to AI her. Ideally 45 to 60 days after calving is when you should consider getting her bred. AI needs to be performed 12 hours after her first signs of heat.
