A male dog can mate twice in one day when the occasion arises, but if he does that regularly his sperm reserves may become depleted leading to lower pregnancy rates. It is best for his fertility levels if he mates every other day.
How long after bleeding is a dog fertile?
After about 9-10 days, the bleeding will become more watery, or stop. It is at this time your female will, most likely, be at her most fertile. This proestrus stage can last as long as 20 days in some dogs. So the end of bleeding can be a more useful indicator of peak fertility.
How do I know when my dog is ready to mate?
Second stage (estrus).
This is the stage where she becomes ready to breed. The vaginal discharge may change from bloody to a clear or brownish discharge. You may also see your dog move her tail to the side, making herself available to a male dog. This is known as “flagging” and is a sign that she is fertile.
