Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today.

A dog's estrus (heat) cycle generally lasts for 21-23 days, but she may not be bleeding for the whole time.

There's a great site that explains things here:

Since you generally see the bleeding in the first week, it's likely safe to assume that she's going to still be in heat for at least another week or so.

I hope this helps.
