      ================== ARTICLE START ==================
      Breeding dogs is an exciting experience. From the time a proper
      mate is found to the point that the puppies are born, it is
      crucial to take careful steps to make this successful.

      Professional dog breeders do not breed frequently and will only
      do so when a pair is found to be healthy that will ensure the
      birth of healthy offspring.

      The ideal breeder should have the pair of dogs tested for every
      possible disease as well as have all the information regarding
      the pair�s ancestors and health records on file. Should a
      breeder find no problem in the history of the pair, then the
      process can begin.

      Dogs normally come into heat twice a year which is every six
      months. Larger dogs can come into heat every eight or ten
      months which usually lasts about three weeks. Vaginal bleeding
      is a sure sign that the dog is in heat as well as swelling in
      the vulva.
      A dog's pregnancy or gestation period lasts between 60 to 67
      days. Most dogs give birth after 63 days.

      The only way to determine the stage of the dog�s pregnancy is
      by keeping the track of time from the day of the breeding.
      Keeping a record of this on file is advisable for reference

      Exactly three weeks after breeding, the mother must be examined
      to confirm the pregnancy.

      The dog must be given a formulated and premium brand of dog
      food for the duration of the pregnancy and throughout the
      nursing period preferably with strong nutritional foundation.

      During pregnancy, the mother's food consumption will almost
      double compared to the pre-pregnancy level so increased feeding
      must be given to ensure that there is enough for both the dog
      and the puppies.

      Behavioral changes are to be expected during this time. The dog
      will demand for more affection or may experience a few days of

      Later on, the expectant mother will search for a secure place
      to deliver the puppies. So, one must ensure that a proper place
      is ready when the time comes. An ideal place for an expecting
      mother is a box. Depending on the size of the dog, it must be
      spacious enough for the dog to move around and must have layers
      of newspaper inside it that will absorb birthing fluids. This
      should also have low sides for the mother to look outside and
      for the breeder to easily check if assistance is needed to make
      it easy to remove soiled papers without interrupting the mother
      and the newborn puppies.
