|The messiness of a heat cycle can be solved by spaying your girl before she comes into heat.
If you do not spay, there are doggie diapers you can buy that can protect your carpet, furniture, etc. She may have to be in them for most of her heat - and she may not like them and try and get them off of her.
But, I would recommend spaying to avoid that mess.
And, I have to mention your dog's collar - a large chain with a padlock is not an appropriate item to use instead of a collar. A chain could cause serious damage to your dog should they get caught on something, or get a tooth hooked in the collar, etc. It is not supposed to be used in that manner and is not going to be comfortable for your dog.
There are plenty of collars that have the "macho" look you are going for that are designed with a dog's comfort and safety in mind.
