In the event that you want to breed your dog or prevent a pregnancy, there are noticeable signs that can alert you that your dog is in heat: First stage (proestrus).

Your dog's vulva will look swollen or larger than normal.

This is usually accompanied by a bloody vaginal discharge and she may urinate more often.

The physical signs of labor can include pacing, panting, and extreme restlessness.

She will also begin nesting by fluffing up the towels within the whelping box.

The owner should also be on the lookout for both loss of appetite and vomiting, as the dog knows it is better not to have a full stomach while in labor.

Feeling your dog's ears is a good way to tell his temperature.

If the ears feel cold, particularly around the edges, it might be time to take him inside and cover him with a blanket.

You can also touch their body.

If it feels cold rather than warm, it is likely your dog is too cold.

Dogs certainly know when they don't feel good, but do they know when the end is near? Sick Dogs may also turn down food and play.

When they're in a lot of distress, they may even cry or howl.

These can all be signs that a dog is dying, but they can also just be symptoms of (non-terminal) illness.
