Look for restless behavior as a sign that more are coming.

Panting, pacing, whimpering, and changing positions can all be signs that there are more puppies on the way.

If your dog still appears restless, it means that it is not done giving birth.

The dog may either stand or lie on its side to give birth.

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.

Just Before Labor Begins: Pregnancy in dogs last approximately 63 days (56-69 days).

Toy breeds often deliver their puppies a week or so earlier; while large breeds tend to deliver later.

Two weeks before your dog's due date, begin to take its temperature at noon.

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.

Persistent and incurable inability to eat, vomiting, signs of pain, distress or discomfort, or difficulty in breathing are all indications that euthanasia should be considered. You and your family know your dog better than anyone else, so try to make a reasoned judgement on his or her quality of life.

Yes, your dog knows how much you love him! Dogs and humans have a very special relationship, where Dogs have actually hijacked the human oxytocin bonding pathway that is normally reserved for our babies.

When you stare at your dog, both your oxytocin levels go up, the same as when you pet them and play with them.
