whelping dates question

2 posts in this topic

How late can one expect the actual whelping date to be from the anticipated date? I have a pup reserved from a breeded that was due Sept. 1st. I havent heard anything yet and the anticipation of a new pup has me all worked up it seems smile.gif I haven't contacted the breeder because I don't want to be a pest grin.gif But was wondering how late one could expect the pups to actually be born.

They are due 63 days past the last breeding... mine generally come on the 61st or 62nd day. Anything past 65 usually signals problems... I's imagine they are on the ground.

I highly doubt the breeder would find you a pest a week past their whelping date. I know when I have a litter, I don't need people calling me around their due date, but a week later would never be an issue. I usually put a call into everyone who has a deposit on a pup on the day they are born to let them know they have a pup on the ground.

Good Luck!

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
