The simple answer to this question is no, your dog will not necessarily cease to bleed as soon as they become pregnant during their heat stage. So this is certainly not a fool-proof way to detect whether or not your dog is pregnant, in fact it is not a method at all. Some dogs will stop bleeding when they become pregnant during heat or not all, it generally depends on the breed of dog that you have or that you are breeding. There are a number of far more effective ways to ascertain whether or not your dog is pregnant than simply the lack of bleeding. For those of you that are not aware, the average gestation period for dogs is somewhere between 63 and 66 days, approximately two months. It is much easier to ascertain whether your dog is actually pregnant if you have a good idea of when she may have been bred in the first place. One of the most effective ways of detecting the pregnancy of your dog is looking for an enlargement of the uterine. This can usually be felt within 25-30 days of the pregnancy. However, if you feel that your dog is pregnant you can actually have an x-ray carried out and this will allow you to detect the enlargement a little earlier, around 21 days into the pregnancy. Simply noticing that you dog has stopped bleeding during heat is not a guarantee that your dog is pregnant, so there is no need to get too excited or worried in this instance.

No, the cessation of the bleeding does not mean that your dog is pregnant.  That is not an accurate way to diagnose pregnancy.
Gestation in dogs is 63-66 days--just a little over 2
months.  There are several methods of
pregnancy detection.  It is easily if you
know the date she may have been bred.

Uterine enlargement can be palpated (felt) by day 25-30
days.  On x-ray uterine enlargement can
be noted sometime between day 21 and 42. 
The fetal skeleton calcifies at day 45 and can be seen on x-rays.  This is the most accurate way to estimate the
number of puppies.

Measuring a serum relaxin assay can detect pregnancy by day
24.  This test though will stay elevated
for several weeks if the dog miscarries. 
It truly measures that conception occurred and does not always guarantee
pregnancy was maintained.

Yes, if a dog is in heat and is pregnant then they are no longer bleeding or in heat anymore. I had been through that experience a year ago.

I Have a male bull mastiff cross rottweiler and a female long legged staff what would happen if she fell pregnant? Would she be able to carry her pups and give berth to them?
