If she is around other females that are in heat, she will usually speed up to be in heat too. There is a way to short cycle her medically with hormones, but this has to be done through your vet. Its done all the time with horses and cattle, etc..., I don't think it's too common in dogs tho. Find a good repro vet, don't think too many standard vets will be able to do it. There is risk of messing her up so make sure it's something you really want to do!!! Personally I wouldn't.

"It isn't nice to mess with Mother Nature!" Over the years there have been many combinations of drugs and hormones tried, but none worked successfully. If the dog managed to cycle early, she didn't ovulate, so it would result in a sterile heat. In many cases, once the drugs were tried the dog never cycled normally again. In other combinations of hormones, the dogs were becoming pregnant but then failed to carry the whelps to term. My only suggestion would be to consult with a canine reproduction specialist and see if there is anything new out there. Apparently dogs need that extended time between cycles to bring all the hormones up to normal levels, unlike humanes who ovulate on a monthly basis.
