Has anyone on here bred dogs before?
I have a boy & girl cavalier king charles spaniel that have mated. Last time she was in season they mated loads & tied for ages every time, & after 3 trips to the vets for scans (1st time they told me she was pregnant, 2nd time told me she wasn't but made me take her back a 3rd time to check!) and no pregnancy. 36 days ago they started mating this time & her teats have got loads longer & she's a bit rounder (although she likes her food so has never been a slim dog!). Read books, but just wondered if anyone had any tips on how to tell without handing the vet a small fortune! Obviously as soon as i am more or less sure i will take her to the vets as i am not an irresponsible dog owner Thanks
