Whelping puppies is one of the most exciting and amazing things you’ll ever likely do. In many cases a dog is able to take care of the whelp completely on her own. However it is certainly useful to understand the process and the signs of impending whelping in case you need to step in and help.
Whelping a word most breeders may not have heard before if it is their first time. The process of whelping is not difficult to master and achieve, it is just the name used for the delivering/birth of puppies. The Pup’s themselves are often noted as ‘whelps’ during their newborn period.
