Today's breeding practices are very different than it was years ago. Many years ago breeders left their bitches to whelp their own youngins without the assistance of humans. Today it is not so cut and dried. Today we as breeders almost always "must" be with our bitches during the time she is whelping her litter. Puppies get stuck, bitches stop contractions as well as other issues that can arrise during the whelping of puppies. Without human interaction it could cost the bitch her life as well as the puppies. When planning a breeding we have to plan our schedule around our bitches due dates but for some of us things just come up where it makes it almost impossible to be home with your girl when she's ready to whelp her litter. I've whelped many litters for other breeders due to "Something Came Up" or "We have a Paid for Vacation that we can not put off" as well as, "Its my first litter, I don't know what to do or I'm scared to do it myself". This is where I offer my services as the "Mid-Woof".
I've been whelping litters since 2001. Over the years I've learned new techniques that have helped save a puppy's life. Although my breed is Pugs they are a difficult breed because they are Brachycephalic (flat faced dogs), but I've had great success in their whelpings and in all these years I can count on one hand how many babies didn't make it. As much as it is very disheartening, it is very rewarding to whelp a litter that thrives knowing the next gereration has entered the Dog World !!
Whelping the litter at the Whelping Den (my place) pricing depends on the breed.
