    your best bet is to contact your breeder and ask when her mom came into heat. That will give you a very good idea.
    I have never had a lab(large breed dog) come into heat before 7 months.

    Every dog is different... Normally, the larger the breed of dog the later they will have their first heat cycle. I agree with Kathryn that it probably won't be for a while yet; 5 months is pretty young for a Lab to go into heat.

    Typically not before 6 months but every dog is different. A friend of mine puppy came into heat at 8 months - another one at 12 months.

    Lizzie was 9 months old when she had her first season, Her mother was 18 months old, so I was a little shocked to say the least..
