How Long Is the Incubation Period for GSD's?

I have a two year old GSD named Kaiya who had puppies today, but I don't know how long they were conceived for which would depend on whom the sire is. How long did your female GSD carry before giving birth?

63 days from being bred, due date depends on ovulation, not ties.

What males was she with 63 ish days ago?

63 days from ovulation, not from being bred/ties. Conception usually takes a couple of days after ovulation. So figure anywhere from 61-65 days prior to the whelping.

But if you weren't there to witness, you should DNA every pup in the litter. There can be multiple sires.
