Hi Jessica. I don't know any other ways of knowing if a dog is pregnant besides going to a vet or when she is almost due as you will see her tummy grow and will beable to feel her stomach. Sorry I can't be of much help. But hope you get puppies and all goes well.

Little piece of advice for you.. you should not breed any dog until they are at LEAST two years old... theyre still growing at a year.. and actually at that young, death of mother and puppies is a possbility... and i dont think you should be breeding your two dogs just to make puppies... thats kinda selfish

Fist of all We are Not breeding just to get puppies its to get the better breed we both have very good dogs with championship blood lines, good temperment,(The males temperment is better then the females.) And second of all we talked to a and he said that it would be fine to breed them as long as they are over a year. He also told me that most dogs dont stop fully developing and growing until there at least 3 to 4 years.

Sure you can mate them over a year BUT you said so in your quote that they dont stop developing and growing until they're 3 or 4.. should you mate a dog whos not fully developed? it wouldnt hurt to wait a year or two... those champion blood lines arent going anywhere.... and IF they really have a champion bloodline in them, shouldnt you do more research as to how to know a dog has been successfully impregnated, and that sometimes, just once doesnt work before you go and irresponsibly mating them

acctually its that you shouldnt breed a dog until there second heat. So if this is her second heat then everything should be fine. You always want to have more then one mating with the two dogs. Sometimes the first will be successfull but most often not. When my grandparents raised Chihuahuas it sometimes took 3-4 mating before they took.

I've noticed that breeding purebreed dogs seems to be more difficult. What I mean is your dog can get out accidently and get pregnant by the dog next door in one mating, but if you're trying to breed your dogs the right way, it seems harder for it to go through okay. Just a little observation of mine... Did you have your dogs tested for genetic problems before you bred them? Let us know what you find out.
