Depends on the dog. I held my dogs puppy usually during birth. Every dog is different. They are not like bird, they won't eat them if you touch them. She will let you know if she will let you near them.
My dog just had pups and the mom will give me the crazy look when I touch them but she doesnt get angry. It's most def. Not 6 weeks, it's whenever the mother feels comfortable she'll let you know either way.
How long till I can hold or touch my dogs babies
Well it is always up to the mother dog she will let you know when you can touch or hold her babies.
You can hold them after a few hours but allow their mother to see them first to form her maternal bond
If you touch them when its too soon yes she will let you know but if you have a persistant person trying to touch them then they have been know to hurt the puppies trying to get them away from you.
Usually about 6 weeks. Even though they open there eyes there mother doesnt like for you to mess with them unless you have to
Well you the dog will let you know my ants dog had one puppy so I wanted to hold the puppy and she said no!but knowing me I held the puppy and the mom did not do nothing
Leave it 6 weeks
