Pregnancy symptoms in all dogs including German Shepherds don't usually appear until the animal is about three to four weeks pregnant.

These signs are only an indication of pregnancy and do not necessarily mean that your pet is pregnant. Confirmation of pregnancy can only be given by a vet - who can carry out an abdominal ultrasound or palpation.

The following are the signs of early pregnancy in dogs:

  • Reduced activity and general lethargy.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Affectionate behaviour.
  • Nipple enlargement.
If these signs are present, then you should take your dog to the vet for confirmation of the pregnancy.
