Whenever I answer a question about basics of dogs breeding on this website, I become worried because these questions indicate that owners are not professional breeders. In such situation, many life threatening conditions can arise during labor and whelping because labor and delivery in dogs can be complicated. So, in my opinion, you should get help from the vet in this regard and don't attempt to do yourself.

Gestation period of Miniature Poodle can be of an average of 9 weeks. Towards the end of this gestation, following signs of labor indicate start of true labor and whelping very soon. These signs are
  1. Loss of appetite
  2. Restlessness and pacing
  3. Reduction in rectal temperature below 100 F
  4. Agitation
  5. Nesting behavior
After appearance of these signs, true labor starts that is characterized by shaking and straining along with restlessness and pacing.
