Default Mother Dog and her Newborns

Hello, I have a question regarding a mother dog and her newborns.

Once she gives birth to her puppies does she tend to be overprotective with having people too close to them?

Depends on the Bitch. Riley wouldn't let anyone near the pups for the first three days. Twist on the other hand seemed to LOVE humans near her puppies.

Mine don't care...which is good. There is stuff I need to do. Extreme aggro would concern me...sometimes that is a sign all is not well with Mom.

The reason I ask is if my bitch needs an extra hand when delivering, I would like to know what to expect in regards to me being too close.

Do you not have a breeder/mentor that can help you with your questions on whelping/breeding? I wasn't aware you were a breeder....learn something new everyday.

That is why I am asking questions here...so I can learn as much as I can before the time comes.

umm an internet forum isn't the most ideal place to get help with something as complicated as a first whelp. You really should have someone who can IN PERSON help you out in case anything goes awry...the person who sold you your dogs should be helping you thru it and answering your questions. That is what they are for...support and help.

You can ask here all you want and we'll answer you...but when she is straining and that pup isn't moving none of us will be there to help you...so please do make an effort to befriend someone experienced in your area to help you with actual in real life, hands on assistance.

If you need names, let me know. I do know Beaglers in Canada.
