ANSWER #1 of 12

Breeding dogs is not a complicated matter! God made them to be able to birth puppies naturally. With most dogs, you can just leave them alone... they know what to do! Your dog can get pregnant as early as 6 months old, but you should not attempt to bread until they are fully developed, (about 2 years old)...

Dogs have milk come out and not be pregnant?
ANSWER #3 of 12

They can get pregnant as early as 6 months old! You want to make sure that does not happen. The best and healthiest thing you can do for your puppy, is to get her spayed, before that happens. It is very dangerous, because she is still a puppy, and not at all, fully developed yet and she could die during delivery. Breeding is a very serious responsibility, and should only be done by a responsible, experienced breeder. If you don't know exactly what is involved, what you are doing, what to do, to assist the mom and the puppies during delivery, how to handle an emergency {complication}, during a delivery, and so much more, then you will be risking the life of your female and her puppies.

How long are goldfish pregnant for?
ANSWER #8 of 12

I've delivered several puppies before. I've delivered puppies from a young mother recently, without any complications,with the mother dog being 8 months old. The new mother has cared for these pups appropriately and still no complications. Though I do not recommend you to breed your dog at such a young age, say 5-6 months old because mentally they cannot take the responsibility. A dog can go into heat around 5 months old, and can get pregnant. You have to be careful when it comes to breeding your animal.

Do female dogs have to be in heat to get pregnant?
ANSWER #9 of 12

Alright, I've delivered several litters from new mother dogs. I've delivered puppies as from a dog who was 5 months old. It's not good for your dog to have puppies at such a young age, not that their not mature enough on the inside, but mentally they cannot take the responsibility of puppies when they are a puppy themselves. I highly recommend to wait until your puppy is at least a year before breeding. Though I've seen new mothers of the age 7-9 months take care of puppies that young. Be cautious when handling the younger pregnant dogs.
