lol I will!You better! Lol.
Thank you for all this info! I don't have a heat lamp as I've heard of dogs getting burned on them, but do have a space heater set up in her whelping room outside of her box. Thanks again!a Lamaze instructor - lol - I mean , huff huff huff huff -- two kids , both Lamaze.
I had a friend from New York who was at the forefront in introducing Lamaze in the Toronto area.
what does the dog need?
she needs a private , quiet , area where she can relax and feel secure .
animals birthing remove themselves , become a bit secretive . Quiet means
that there aren't dogs barking outside or having a party indoors .
she needs an area which might have a source of heat directed on her -- brood lamp suspended
above area and appropriate distance -- even temperature zone
she needs the room warmed .
she needs a source of water available --- some like to give water and a bowl/bucket with pedialyte
put down a layer of newspapers in case she needs to void her bladder -- little dribbles when there is
pressure from a pup entering the birth canal.
good luck !
