Working with Dogs

The Doberman is having puppies!
By Kira Losert

Seeing a dog give birth is an amazing sight and one I witnessed during a stay for free accommodation in a pet sitting job recently!

We knew she was going into labour so we prepared an area for her with plenty of towels and even prepared water and some sterilised scissors to ensure the birth would go smoothly.

Puppy after puppy was born and then everything was safely handled and it was just amazing to see! She had 6 puppies and each were extremely healthy, and I was so happy to have been there for the birth!
