    61 - 63 days. I was renting the basement of a guy who bred St. Poodles. Calley went off to be bred, was bred 3 times in a week and delivered her pups exactly 61 days from the first breeding. man were they cute! I got to be with her when she delivered as her "people" were out that night, and she didn't want to be alone.

    Most people quote 63 days though it can vary just like humans from 58-68. A vet should be seen at 70 days. If mom didn't go into labor by then her and the puppies' life are in danger. Labor is generally predicted by a drop in body temp to below 100 degrees with normal being 101-102 degrees F. After that drop labor usually begins withi 24 hours.
