I think my female dog is in her 1st heat she is clingy to me and aggressive to others, wants me to rub her belly constantly, is this usual?

How about killing two birds with one stone? Take her to a vet and have her checked out. If she's healthy, get her spayed and that will be the end of that problem. If she's sick, you'll have taken care of her properly.

In most times, it is normal and considered as a sign of submission when a dog wants you to rub her belly. This may mean that the dog is contented with you. The aggressiveness behavior could be due to anxiety.

I'm sure each dog is different. If she's healthy, it's fine. And dogs that are pets should be fixed before their first heat.

How old is she? 6/8 months? She would be spotting and licking her butt lots.
Anyway, keep her away from other dogs, unless you are planning to have a litter.
