We never had a female dog (yet) so can't give any tips but vibes that your dog is just fine. Would you consider fixing her?

About 21 days is normal for the heat cycle.

yes, its normal. the heat can last anywhere from two to four weeks depending on the dog, but the high end of the scale is unusual. the 1st heat is normally lighter and will attract (somewhat) less attraction from intact males.

Make sure you consider cleanliness during the heat. You want to make sure the area is cleaned to prevent bacterial infections.
