I know absolutely nothing about breeding and have never seen a litter being born so I have a question- are all of those people in the room with her stressing her out? Should you be petting a dog that is in labor?
I also never realized that dogs were bred specifically for service dog projects.
"Meet the Great Dane puppies being raised at the Service Dog Project. Located in Ipswich, Massachusetts, the Service Dog Project rests on a 12-acre property with heated kennels, fields, and a large arena. These areas provide the necessary space to raise the dogs from birth to graduation, and even back for retirement if needed.
Service puppies Perry, Lola, Ebony, Mia, Willow, and Roxanne will eventually be placed with people who have Multiple Sclerosis, individuals with Friedreich’s ataxia, and veterans with disabilities. Each dog receives extensive training for balance, and once a dog is paired with an applicant, the dog is uniquely trained to suit the recipient’s needs."
