Have your dog examined by a veterinarian. Prolonged gestation (pregnancy) leads to an increased likelihood that a C-section will be needed or fetal problems may develop. Medication may be given if appropriate to stimulate labor.
Verify breeding date--perhaps she is still a few days from her "due date." Gestation lasts 63-66 days in the dog on average. Gestation periods longer than 70 days are very concerning.
Your veterinarian can also confirm pregnancy. Some dogs experience a pseudopregnancy; they have the hormonal changes that occur when pregnant but no puppies. This leads to mammary development and even milk production.
Contact your veterinarian for more information.
