My puppy just went into heat! Now what?!

Hi guys!
My vet recommends waiting until after the 1st heat cycle to spay!
My 10 month old puppy went into heat today! I've never been through this process before. What can I expect?
She was also going to daycare 3 times a week and is now banned until after her cycle! Yikes! Help!
Thank you!

I also moved your thread to the Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy, Physiology & Breed Standard Forum. Hopefully you'll get more views.

It's going to be close to a 3 week process. If you get toddler cotton training pants you can cut a hole for her tail to go through. Depending on how big she is, a size 4/5 should work fine. (I bought super hero for my girl, she just happens to be wearing superman tonight which makes my husband laugh). Use baby gates to keep her off the carpet and furniture until you get to the store and get the underwear. Buy a 5 pack and switch them out and toss them in the washer. It's not a huge mess, some dogs keep themselves cleaner than others. Don't let her outdoors unless she's on leash or in a securely fenced area where you can keep an eye on her. Hang in there, it will seem like forever at first but it's not so bad.
