How long it takes for a dog to have puppies?
The dog's gestation period on the average is sixty-three days. Swelling of the abdomen becomes more noticeable from the fifth week onwards, though if only one or two pups are being carried, or the b--- is plump anyway, this sign of approaching maternity may be difficult to spot. The mammary glands enlarge and the teats become larger and pinker from about the thirty-fifth day of pregnancy. A watery secretion can be drawn from the teats three or four days before the pups are born.
When birth is imminent, the b---'s temperature drops by a couple of degrees and she becomes restless, may go off her food, pants fitfully, and prepares her bed. This state of pre-labor usually lasts about twelve hours, but it can be much briefer or continue for a day or two, sometimes with intervals of normal behavior. True labor begins when you see the first strain by the b--- or the appearance of a colored (bottle green) discharge. The maximum time that it should take to deliver each pup, counting from the first sign of straining, is two hours. The total time for whelping an average litter of four to eight pups is up to six hours.
IT TAKES LIKE 60-63 DAYS . MY DOG JUST HAD PUPPYS AND OW MY GOD SHE DID NOT HAVE 5 OR 6 OR EVEN 10 SHE HAD 21 DAMN PUPPYS .

usually 63-65 days my dog is pregnant aswell and our friends have told us lots about it and not much of it is true so its usually 63 - 65 days
The book says 62 days but our MinPin was sleeping with me on her 53 day and had the pups in my bed. Quite a surprise! I guess they can always come early.
67 days. Also it's not good for them to breed the first time they come in season, better to wait untill the second time.
30-63 days im not wrong I know dogs that have had babies in like 39 days really. but most of the time it's 60-63 days.
I need to know how long it takes because I need to get ready she is restless and dosen't eat her food so I'm concerned
It takes up to 9 weeks its like how it takes 9 months for a human to have a child.
