I don't breed my dogs, so I really wouldn't know. Call your vet maybe?

This is a question for your breed mentor.

If you don't know why are you breeding?... You should of known everything about breeding before you even started to breed.. I'm not sure how long, maybe a week or two..? Good Luck!

at 4 weeks after breeding you can take her in to your vet for an ultrasound to confirm wether or not she's pregnant. She can't get pregnant unless she was bred at the right time. her eggs wont be able to be fertilized until they are maturated 2 days after ovulation. The only way to know for sure when she ovulated is with progesterone tests from a reproductive vet. Just because she stood for a tie doesn't mean it was a fertile time for her. Semen will typically last for 4-6 days inside the bitch, so she would have to be bred no sooner than 2 days before ovulation and no later than 2 days after to have a real chance at having puppies. Implantation occurs at about 10 days after ovulation. Hope this answered your question, but this is all stuff you really should know if you're breeding. Good luck!

Approximately two months, or about 63 days.
This is extremely basic information. Something you should know a long, long time before breeding your dog. There is so much more you've got to know, and it would take way more than two months to learn it all and get the hands-on experience you'll need. For example, did you know that dogs can spread sexually transmitted diseases?
Here's an article with examples of other things you need to be prepared for:

Good luck to you. Your best bet is to get in touch with your dog's vet, and look for an experienced and reputable mentor through the breed parent club.

63 days.
You shouldn't breed your dog.
She will be fine being a spayed female, then she doesn't have to be all stressed out all the time.
It does take alot of knowledge in breeding dogs. Please consult with your vet.
If she is in whelp she should of already been to the vet. Just like a human pre natal care is the best thing to do.

Hi there!

If she got "bread" then she probably ate the bread and will not be pregnant. If she got bred, and she was in heat, it's a different story! BOL!

If you're lucky, she didn't get pregnant. There are huge health risks to pregnancy and whelping, and depending on the breed, it may require a C-section to save your dog's life or the lives of the pups.

If you hurry and get her to the vet, you can get a "morning after" pill for her. Another option is a spay/abort, so she won't have the health risks of carrying a litter to term.

Here is a link to all the great reasons to spay and neuter our pets: www.barkrescue.net

And, if you really want her to stay pregnant, here is a link to the top 10 reasons to breed a dog: www.canismajor.com

The most important thing is for your dog to be well cared for, whether or not she's pregnant, so please get her to the vet for a check-up. Good luck!
