Whelping Services

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 !!



Services Offered


Whelping the litter at the Whelping Den (my place) pricing depends on the breed.

Home Visits:


Whelping a litter of puppies in your home within 25 miles cost the same as whelping in my place unless you do not have the proper supplies, therefore additional charges may apply for supplies.  If you are over 25 miles the cost of travel time, gas and tolls (if needed) will apply.  Booking within 24 hours is considered an emergency whelping priced at $300 over the cost of our scheduled service.


To book your whelping I require a $300 non refundable deposit which can be paid by Venmo The balance must be paid when you drop off your bitch or I arrive at your place and it must be paid in cash.


Emergency C-Sections are additional which is paid to the Vet of "Your" choice. Should you need a recommendation for a vet to section your bitch I will gladly refer you to an experienced vet that has experience in C-Sections.
