my females drip milk for 2 to 3 days before going into labor...my pomchi mixed squirted milk everytime she would sit down from her bottom teats the day before going into labor...i would get a xray done to see how many pups to expect and how big they are...

    Usually when you pinch the nipples and milk comes out she is getting closer to the end of her pregnancy probably around 2 weeks. You should also count from the time of the mating, that will give you a good idea of which day your dog will give birth. You should speak to you vet about preparing for the puppies... you should get an ultrasound to make sure all the puppies are the right size and will be easy for her to deliver naturally. Just be prepared for a mess... its a stinky job taking care of puppies. I foster pregnant dogs all the time from the humane society and you never know what could go wrong with them... GOOD LUCK. GET READY FOR PUPPIES!

    Hm. I find it strange that your vet actually encouraged you to breed, champion lines or not. If both parent dogs are actually proven showring champions as well as the stud she was bred to and she's of show quality then there's really no "ethical" or "negative" foul here other than not fully knowing what you're doing :P.

    I think once the ***** starts producing milk it's only a matter of days. Why don't you want to call the breeder? Did you sign a no breeding contract? If you did you may not be able to legally register your puppies. If that's the case then make sure you whip up similar contracts for those who buy puppies from you or use the puppy deposits to pay to have the puppies spayed and neutered before you send them to their new homes. Please respect breeding contracts.

    If you didn't and your breeder was okay with you having breeding rights then get ahold of them. I'm sure they'd rather answer your questions than have you fumbling around in the dark in unfamiliar territory. If they didn't make you sign a "no breeding" contract when they sold you a high-quality dog then they must have been okay with you breeding. In this case, I highly recommend you contact the breeder and get as much information as you can!

    They do not get actual milk until a few days after the pups are born!
    Usually, Colostrum comes in a week before to right before the pups are born.

    & no your breed mentor will not think you are weird.

    It isn't precise: a day or two, maybe. Some don't look full until after the colostrum is gone and the next stage of milk comes in.

    It would be best to contact the breeder or the vet, as they will be able to tell you best of what is going on.
