|Varies from dog to dog. My Golden was acting like nothing had happened right after she woke up from her spay. Vet techs even mentioned how spry she was, and she was spayed at four years old. I've only had the one female, but mine didn't stay overnight. We picked her up pretty much right after she woke up. But since yours is staying, you shouldn't have to worry as much about possible nausea afterward, which was the one thing my Golden had post spay. Some vets give pain meds and some don't. Might be something to ask about.
Definitely restrict activity. I wouldn't let them play together for a little while, just because it can escalate so quickly. Recovery time will again depend on the dog. Depending on how she's feeling, easy walks might be okay after a few days. My Golden was raring to go the morning after, but you don't want to tear stitches. Definitely invest in some frozen Kongs, raw meaty bones, bully sticks, ect. to keep her occupied because she might have the energy and desire to exercise before her body is really healed enough to.
