Dog With Puppies
A pregnant dog may be a bit more sensitive, uncomfortable, and even grumpy as she gets closer to delivering her puppies. Your children need to be taught to respect her space and would best be supervised if they are too young to comply. This is a page about children around a pregnant dog.

Is it okay if the kids hold our pregnant Shih Tzu? How should they do this without hurting the puppies?

please do not let your children hold your precious fur baby when she is pregnant. This might make her uncomfortable and might be painful to her. When pregnant she needs to stay quiet and have her "own place" to go and rest.


Please have her checked by her veterinarian as she needs extra calcium and she will eat /drink more. Good luck with you new family.
