This should go in the health section.

No, there is no way to stop your female from bleeding. The only way to solve the bleeding is to get her spayed.

If the bleeding is excessive it may be more than just her being in heat; like an infection or other issue.
If you aren't sure if it is normal bleeding for a heat cycle get her to the vet for a check up asap.

If you are not showing or working the dog I also recommend getting her fixed.

Don't worry about the puppy thing, it is really much better that she dosen't have them. It s somethng that should be left up to the experienced breeders, for us un-experienced guys it is more work than we need, and it is better for our dogs to not have puppies since we are un-experiencd.

Your dog is in "heat", not her period. "Period" is the term for human females and IT is actually totally opposite from a dog being in "heat".

Yes, the bleeding is a mess and you will have to deal with it for about 2 weeks every 6 to 8 months if you don't get her SPAYED (not "sprayed").

No, she can never have puppies if she is spayed.

Is her vet appointment to get her spayed? If so, your vet needs to know that she is now in heat...

OMG truer words were never spoken.
I have a shelter dog who just had pups, and I am reminded why all my dogs are altered. It is a lot of work, special food requirements, vet checks, and puppies. And this is for a shelter dog, not even a prized show/working dog who was intentionally bred. Bless those responsible breeders who do all this work with each and every litter, for the betterment of the breed (whichever breed it may be).

If you know what day she started bleeding, count that as Day 1 and don't let your girl out of your sight until Day 30. Male dogs will do about anything to get to a female in heat and it just takes a couple of seconds.

Your check-up appointment would be a good time to talk to your vet about getting her spayed.

It is 9 days in and 9 days out. She wouldnt accept a male until during the 9 days out but it is very hard to keep count of the days unless you are experienced enough to recognize the swelling and most importantly the flagging.
Don't let her out of a male proof area. These males will dig under a fence, jump a fence, stalk your yard , anything to get at her.
You probably need to go ahead with that appt and see that she isn't actually ill. Then have her spayed.
Puppies are an enormous responsibility and not to be taken lightly or for granted.
