Average duration of pregnancy in dogs can be of 63-65 days. It can fluctuate between 59-68 days. Process of birth can take 2-6 hours depending upon litter size. Dogs can become pregnant 2 times in a year as there can be 2 heat periods per year. If your dog is pregnant then get help from the vet for delivery of the puppies as this can be complicated.

The canine gestation period is similar to that of humans, in that its length is flexible. Typically, a dog's pregnancy will last around 63 days from conception to birth (also known as whelping).

There are certain signs to look out for if you think that your dog may be pregnant. Most common is a 'nesting' behaviour, in which the dog will try to establish a safe place in which to give birth. However this is not a definite sign that you should expect puppies, as dogs experiencing false pregnancies also display these behavioural traits. A dog that is truly pregnant will certainly show an increase in appetite soon after conception.

If you think your dog is pregnant you should make a vets' appointment for around 20 days after conception. From about 25 days into gestation the vet should be able to detect the puppies' heartbeat, and from around 45 days their skeletons will be visible on an x-ray. Before this, however, a blood test can confirm pregnancy as it will display increased levels of the hormone relaxin.

when her belly falls just like a human my tea cup was the same way. for some reason she was afraid for the male to be in there with her though but sure enough right when we took him out she had them right away it was so crazy but. as for your answer to that burning question its when the wideness of her belly looks like its dragging to the floor. that's when you know it's time.
