My question is why are you allowing your dog to have puppies. Do you know how many dogs are sitting in shelters around this country waiting for homes, many that never get homes? Please have your dog spayed after this litter and good luck finding them homes. Gestation is around 9 weeks.

First off the gestation period is 63 days.

Now for what Marfette said. I do agree that there are already too many dogs sitting in shelters now and your dog needs to be spayed.

But it sounds like it's too late for this litter. I don't know of a single vet who will abort a litter of puppies or kittens. So now that she's already pregnant there's not anything that Sharon can do except get her dog through this pregnancy and find good reliable homes for the puppies.

But I do hope you get her spayed as soon as they are born!

I have always heard 3months+3weeks+3days. Not totally sure on that but, that's what I have heard.

It's normally 61-63 days, but if the litter is large, they could be born sooner. Of course, if you know when the female was bred, you can count the days; otherwise you have to guess. A vet, or experienced dog breeder, can palpate the female's abdomen and make an educated guess as to how far along she is in the pregnancy and how much time is left (and how many pups there are).

61-63 days and its best to have them exrayed a day or two before the birthing day. That way you will know if the first one is laying crossways or head down as she is suppose to be in the birth canal and the others can be born with no problems. That way she will not have severe pain in trying to have them. Good Luck! I have delivered over 25 litters of Pugs. Bulldogs are different. They cannot do it on their own. Only c-section. Nikki

The same time as any other breed of dog. Ask the breeder or your Veterinarian. Is she a registered pedigree dog?

How do I know what day my Chihuahua became pregnant? She was mated on May 29th and May 30th. Also about how long are they usually pregnant for?

All dogs are pregnant for an average time of 63 days. With the amount of animal overpopulation these days, perhaps you can spay your dog after this litter.

It is usually 61-63 days, but if the litter is very large, they could be born a little sooner.

There is no way to tell for sure how many she will have.

Do you know what day on which she bred with the male?

It is usually about 60 days until pups are born.

What is the Gestation Period for Dogs?

How long will it take my 10 month old Shepherd Akita mix to have pups? I lined her back with a pure Akita.

The gestation period for dogs and cats is 63 days from the date of conception. If you know the exact date of conception, you can count it out on the calendar and you'll be on the nose for when the pups will arrive. (03/09/2010)

I wish to know the gestation period for our pet Shih tzu dogs?

By Terry from Camarillo, CA

Answers:

It's 63 days from the day of conception. I was brought up with my mother breeding dogs, and I bred them myself for many years and it never failed. (11/05/2009)

I suggest if you are thinking of breeding your pet you get in contact with a good vet. God willing you won't need their services, but if you love your pet you will be prepared. Small breeds tend to have problems in delivering. If you aren't sure when she got bred the vet can give you a pretty good idea when she gets close. Her temperature will go up a couple of degrees and she will start nesting. I have raised puppies for years and wish you luck. Nothing more rewarding than watching the little babies being born and loving that Momma. Good luck. (11/05/2009)

It is 63 days on any dog and your dog's temp is always higher than a humans like about 102, but if you test her and she is going higher than that she is getting ready to go into labor.
