Dog is one of the most animal which most of people pick as a pet at their house. People tend to choose dog as a pet because of some reasons. As we know that dog can be included on ‘people’s friend’ kind of animal. Research shows that dog listen to human’s command very well. It also shows that dog is the most loyal animal among the entire pet. On the Hachiko movie, we can see how loyal a dog to its owner. For some people who just raised a dog as a pet may have a problem on knowing how long are dogs pregnant, how to know when they are pregnant, how to prepare dog’s pregnancy and many more.
So, actually, how long is it?
There is no exact answer for how long are dogs pregnant question. Just like the other mammals and human, dog’s length of pregnancy depends on some factors. However, some people said that the length of dog’s pregnancy is about nine weeks. The range of the day is between 58 to 68 days. It can be faster or slower than that range of days.
What are the factors that cause the length of dog’s pregnancy?
The first factor is the litter size. Usually, a dog that has smaller litter size will have longer days of pregnancy. This is because some puppies absolutely mean more room on the uterus. On the contrary, dogs that have bigger litter size might deliver the babies sooner.
That’s because the puppies might trigger the labor sooner and run out from the room faster. The mother of puppy’s size can be the second factor of how long are dogs pregnant. Big breed mothers usually carry the babies on a shorter time than small breed mothers. Even though there are always exceptions for this factor. The size of the mother and also the number of pups carried by the mother are two elements that can’t be despite.
The last factor of how long are dogs pregnant is family line average. If you want to know how long your dog will carry her babies, try to track down the mother’s and the grandmother’s pregnancies. Although it seems so impossible to find out the history of the pregnancies, some professional breeders keep on trying to track down the history line of dog’s birth to know the length of the pregnancy for sure.
