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

The short answer is "yes".

A dog's normal estrus cycle (heat cycle) can range between 20-24 days, depending on the dog. Since your girl seems to be on day 10, then yes...she's normal.

There's a bunch of information on canine estrus cycles here: http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/estrus-cycles-in-dogs/5778

I hope this helps!
