Rottweiler Q&A

how long are they pregnant

Answer Question

Answers (1)

The Rottweiler is just like any other breed and the usual gestation length is 63 days. If the dog goes more than 2-3 days beyond that, a Veterinarian should be contacted. The puppies may need to be delivered surgically. You will notice a drop in the temperature by several degrees from the normal of 101.5-102. This indicates the Mother-to-be will deliver usually within 24 hours. Rottweiler's can sometimes have large litters with as many as 10-12 puppies. If this is the case they can sometimes deliver a few days early.
