it depends on the mom id think.

But maybe, after the pups are born. Do what you need to do, and then let mom have some alone time with her babies.
I know its tempting to show off pups, but keep it to immediate family/people your dog knows around the whelping area after shes had pups. Slowly work with the mom and pups until shes comfortable with you handling them and knows you mean no harm

My puppy's mom needed to have a vet come on an emergency basis because one of the pups (8 in all) was too big and it was stillborn. Dolly needed to have a c-section and is retired now, from having pups after 3 litters. All the rest of the puppies were fine, even the runt survived and thrived.

Apparently she did fine with 1 and 2, but maybe by 3 litters by 6 years of age she was pupped out??

3 litters by age 6 is what I meant!!

Agree !!! Never breed before 2 years and tested and even one litter a year is too much to me !

I would have to agree that it all depends on your relationship with your dog. I have never had a dog that had puppies more than once so I wouldnt know of any differances after the first litter. I have never had problems with a female being over protective towards me b/c I try to be the soul care taker and gain all my rescues trust. BUT I have had that no one else in my family was allowed to even come in the whelping room.

So whens the big day?

Can you back htis up with some studies?

Everything I've been reading suggests that, assuming no loss of condition (some bitches DO get really dragged down by puppies) that it's best to do your litters back to back and spay as young as possible.

Really? I've always heard that you should let the bitch go through a heat between every litter, to let her body fully recover.
