while ago...? Not exactly sure of the date and it was unexpected, a little bit. I was wondering the exact signs and what I will need when the dog goes into labor. Please and thank you in advance. This is her first litter.
The Chihuahua mated with a Chihuahua. And the female dog is about 3 or 4 years. My dad has some experience with helping animals give birth and we've already consulted with our vet. He's given us some pointers, number to call if anything goes wrong, etc.
Oh, and she got pregnant around the last two weeks of June.

The gestation period for dogs is 8 weeks. If you know the exact time of mating(hookup) then plan on having a litter 2 months later. Like the answerer above stated, the expected mother's nose will get colder to the touch about 5-10 hours before delivery. Watch her actions, she'll start whimpering often and looking for a place to give birth.

Her noise will get very very cold about 5-10 hours before she goes into labor. She might start looking for a place to have the puppies. Make sure that you watch your dog while she gives birth to her first puppy she might not know what to do and you might have to rip the sack for her so the puppy doesn't die. Show her though. Watch out though because my boyfriends aunt's chihuahua had puppys and killed them all because she thought they were toys. Make sure that you don't have a whole bunch of people walking in and out of the room while shes giving birth. Let only the people she knows and trust in there. But touch her noise and if it's very cold she's most likley in labor.
