Is she a pedigree and is she being mated to produce pups that are true to that pedigree. If yes then you should make sure she is only approached by the one sire until you are sure she is pregnant. Otherwise she will let you know how many times. It depends how long she is in season for.
If no then let her do what comes maturely and fits in with your tastes and routines.

Get her neutered. There are already too many stray/unwanted dogs in the world. If you want more dogs, please adopt.

Don't mate her. There are thousands and thousands of dogs put down every year because of people like you.

Twice is likely enough. Since you are breeding your dog, I'm sure that you have shown her to her championship, had the proper genetic testing done, and chosen a genetically tested, championship
stud for her. Surely you have a breed mentor that can help you. If those things have not been done, then you should not be breeding her.

Dear lord, another one?
Fix your pets.
Here is a list of resources that I give people who ask this type of question.

Please read the links I provided. A lot of people breed their dogs with no ideas to the consequences or dangers involved. Personally I would not want to risk the lives of my dogs and their puppies.

What are you going to do if something goes wrong?

Why do you want to breed your dog? Why do you want to create more puppies when there are thousands in shelters?

Can you even afford it? Many people think that breeding is a good way to make fast money. It’s not. Good breeders are lucky to break even when selling puppies. It’s not unlikely that you will lose money in the process.

Do you have enough time to raise a litter? One puppy is hard enough, now, imagine eight or nine. You won’t have any free time.

Do yourself a favor and don’t breed your dog. Better yet get them fixed. It’s much easier on their body and much less expensive.
This is a copy and paste answer that I wrote. I will not dignify every one of these with a unique answer.


I didn't even go into the genetic health testing and conformation part of this that should all be considered BEFORE breeding.

Never. The world doesn't need more puppies


If you had done research, you would discover that one successfull mating is enough for a female to get pregnant.

I hope your dog is at least two years old, has her health certifications, and some form of title (either in a show ring, or as a working dog). And that the male has all the same things.
if not, she is a PET QUALITY dog. this doesn't mean she's not a good dog, it just means that she isn't going to bring anything good to her breed. The reason people who show their dogs breed them is to make the breed better and healthier. they don't just breed for the sake of making more of that breed.

I suggest getting her spayed. Unless you have at least $3000 for vet bills while your female is pregnant, and just in case something horrible happens involving the pregnancy.
