Can Bulldogs get Pregnant Naturally?

Can Bulldogs get Pregnant Naturally?

Written by Jacob C  in Bulldog Care


While the answer is yes, bulldogs can get pregnant naturally, it is important to note that they do not get pregnant easily when using natural methods. First, with many bulldog breeds, the chest, shoulders and head are much larger than their hips. What this means is that the dog is usually heavier in the front than they are in the back

When a male bulldog mounts a female, his front weight pushes down the backend of the female bulldog. This makes it very difficult for them to obtain a tie. To prevent this from happening, breeders need to assist the male by holding the females hips and helping him onto the female.

It is for this reason that many breeders choose to do artificial insemination (AI) and often, 80 to 90% of bulldogs are bred using artificial insemination.

How Long are Bulldogs Pregnant

When it comes to how long a bulldog is pregnant, all dogs follow the same pregnancy schedule, regardless of breeds, and will usually deliver their puppies on day 63 from ovulation. This can vary from each individual bulldog and, sometimes, from each individual pregnancy

Unfortunately, unless you are testing for ovulation, it can be difficult to determine when they are. For this reason, breeders follow a guideline of 59 to 70 days from the date of the first breeding. Your bulldog should deliver any time in those 11 days, but frequently, they will deliver on day 63.

Can bulldogs give natural birth?

Having a litter of puppies is a wonderful thing…a bone tiring, up for days on end, loud and often smelly…but wonderful thing. It is amazing watching a litter grow and fulfilling to watch those well-rounded puppies head off to their own homes where they can make people happy. However, a puppy’s life starts at birth and many people wonder, can bulldogs give natural birth?

So let’s answer this question, can bulldogs give birth naturally? No, most bulldog breeds cannot give natural birth. In general, bulldog puppies are often too large for the birth canal. This requires the aid of a trained veterinarian to perform a c-section in most cases. However, some bulldog breeds do not require c-sections and can have a natural birth.

If you are planning a c-section for your bulldog, you will usually know the date of ovulation and the vet will simply do the c-section on day 63 or when the bulldog shows signs that labor is imminent.
