    Default Can I still hunt my dog once she's bred?

    Looking at breeding my female GWP. If I do I am curious if I can still run her her first month of pregnancy or if that is a bad idea.

    I did. I used a vest. Two or three hours, moderate cover.

    I usually won't hunt them in the third trimester. Too many things dragging on her already. Pups are also getting exposed to any potential impacts.
    Trust the dog!

    pregnancy in a dog is only 61-63 days. That first month the pups are pretty small but that last month things change rapidly so I would be careful what type of cover you put her into and the amount of time she is exercising. Moderate is good for them but too much can cause problems.
