How to tell if my dog is pregnant?

Hey there – I’ve heard lots of dog owners who don’t have their pet spayed or neutered and all the sudden end up with a litter of puppies – without any warning. Are there signs or symptoms we should look for? I know the more logical thing to do would be to get my dog fixed but I am kind of against that as an option. Thanks so much!

Hey – so while there are few symptoms of dogs being pregnant there are a few red flags you can look for: weight gain being one. If your pup is preggers there is usually a larger belly and tender nipples. You might also notice your dog experiencing abdominal pain and/or being more sluggish than usual. The cycle for a dog’s pregnancy is only around 60 days (2 months) so it does happen quickly but hopefully you can stay aware of these signals and know in advance if you should be expecting a litter on your hands (or paws). Thanks!
