Instead of looking on shedding of mucus plug, look for signs of labor. The mucus plug is lost in dogs 4-5 days before delivery. Sometimes, it can be lost 7 days before delivery. Following signs of labor indicate that dog is going to have puppies within 8-48 hours.
  1. Agitation
  2. Restless & pacing
  3. Loss of appetite
  4. Reduction in rectal temperature below 100 F
  5. Nesting behavior
These signs are clear signs of delivery of puppies.

After losing mucus plug, dog can deliver puppies within next few hours. Very soon she will strain to push puppy out and become restless and pacing.

Its just depends on if its the dogs first time or not, when its the first time having pups take longer can be a couple of days or almost a  week   when they start leaking so much it means they are ready so just need to watch out and make sure you know where is she having the pups coz they freak out and have  them in different places..

Dogs lose mucus plug just before giving birth. When mucus plug is lost then you can expect birth of first puppy within an hour or 2.

Usually very soon but it can vary a bit. Have you been taking temperature and are all set up and know what is and is not supposed to happen? You would want to know when a problem is occuring. A basic run down and basics and detailed links for you in the first link of what you need to know. If labor is imminent you would want to check out the first few links after the answer asap at the minimum before she whelps. Good Luck.

Mucus plug is seen in pregnant dogs. This plug is shed few days before delivery. Usually it can be shed 4-5 days before delivery. Sometimes it is shed 7 days before. So, Mucus plug on dogs is shed on any day after 58 days of pregnancy. In order to know accurate date of pregnancy, it is good to have ultrasound after 50 days of pregnancy.
