I bred my lab on her 7th, 8th and 9th day of her cycle. Each time they have tied an average of 10-20 minutes. Everything I have read does not mention how many times I should allow them to mate. If I let them mate more than 3 times will this result in more puppies or just a greater chance of her becoming pregnant? Should I continue to have them mate until she rejects him? Thanks in advance! :)

I"m sorry, but I do have some questions for you. 1. Why are you breeding this dog??? 2. Are you selling puppies???? 3. Giving them away? In all cases I hope that you aren't just wanting her to have a batch of puppies because your dog is super...... I lived in an area not long ago where people bred their dogs, picked up and left their dogs and went to Mexico without any concern for their pet dog at all..... People dump their animals in that area cuz it's very desert. Sorry but I've seen way to many people neglect or abuse their dogs. The exception to breeding your dog would be for planned adoptions with people with good references, breeding to put the dog in service for blind or companion animals But to answer your other question, I really think you are trying to hard to make it happen. Give the pups a break. And please, remember, this is only my opinon

Your best chances for breeding are to breed 10 days from the date the dam first starts bleeding. Then separate the dogs and wait 24 hrs, separate and wait 48 hrs. This gives you the best chance for conception. However if you have already bred your dog three times and you have seen them mate, chances are she's prego. If this is your first litter you will have lots of questions, don't hesitate to ask your vet. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
