dogs normally give birth about 63 days after breeding.You may see her start nesting.You will need a whelping box for her.You can make one or you cna use a plastic kids pool(you know the blue ones)line it with blankets,ones that u don't care if they get ruined because they will.Also ones that don't have holes in them that the pups won't get their toes or legs stuck in. When you notice her nesting or not eating or a day you take her temp by using a rectal termometer,a little bit of vasoline on the end,a normal dogs temp is between 101.5 and 102.5 it will drop with in 24 hours of giving birth.Then you show her to her pool or take her out let her empty(pee or poo)herself out and then take her to her whelping area.You should set this up in a quiet place about a week before she is due so she can get use to it.In your bedroom or someplace warm is good.I will finish this at your dogs page.

You should let her have her puppies at the vet since your are inexperienced. And why are you breeding anyway? You obviously have not done the years of research needed and don't have the experience. Take my advice, after this litter, study about it. Study with all your might. If you feel the requirements are too hard, then you are not cut out for breeding. Leave it to the professionals.
