My 8 month old lab has just come into her first season. Does anyone have any advice apart from follow her around with a cloth?! Fortunately we have hard floors, but I have no experience of this and no idea what to expect. How long does the bleeding last for and how long do we need to keep her on lead for walks? Also, my vet advised spaying after her first season. Do I need to wait a certain amount of time or can I book her in as soon as she’s finished... assuming my vet will operate currently?
