Dog Gestation Period

Plan the Big Day




Dog gestation period is the time is takes from date of mating to the date when you can expect your little puppies. 


Always a big event.   This chart helps you to plan the arrival of the little ones.

Small dog breeds may need assistance at birth, due to their small bone structure, particularly the Brachycephalic dog breeds and many Toy Dog Breeds usually need veterinary assistance, due to their tiny frames and breeding.

The canine gestation period reflected in the chart above is based on a 65 day pregnancy. 

To work out when your puppies may be due to be born, look at the corresponding dates. For example if the date of breeding was 8th January, your puppies birth date will be close to 12th March.

If the date your little lady was covered was the 2nd August, the puppies will be born around 4th Oct.

Hopefully this  canine gestation period chart will take the guess work out of this exciting time for you and your new mother.

As with human pregnancy times, the  gestation period of a dog may vary by a day or two either way.



extra nutrition


When your little sweetheart is about 35 days into her doggie pregnancy, she will need about twice her normal amount of food. 

She is also going to need almost double that when she starts nursing her little pups. 

Buy the correct food (even a good high quality puppy food is good for her right now) during the dog gestation.


visit your veterinarian


Your soon to be doggie mother, will need to see a vet around 45 days, as the skeletons of the growing puppies will have materialized. 

During the dog gestation period it's important as you need to establish how many puppies are expected and the future doggie mommy checked for birth preparation.
