Hello my name is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg in Miami, Florida with Miami Dog Training. In this clip we are going to talk about symptoms of pregnancy in dogs and one of the first things you may notice is your dog's appetite may increase or decrease. Their attitude may change, she may become a little more bitchy. She may not want to be around other dogs. She may become more protective of you and the house and the family because those are the things that she is naturally getting injected with these hormones that are telling her that it is time to nurture and protect and often they'll show those outward signs just in their behavioral changes. Sometimes of course you will see swelling of the abdomen and then you'll see the teats begin to enlarge and fill with milk and then of course as they progress you'll see lumps in their belly and you will be able to actually feel the puppies moving. Once again this is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg with Miami Dog Training.
