Cocker Spaniel Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 7/30/2004
The sire and dam were together three times. Can anyone tell me how many puppies I should expect?

8/1/04 There's really no way to tell how many puppies you will get based on the number of times the parents where together. The number of puppies depends on how many eggs the female produces. If the parents were together three times all of your girl's eggs probably got fertilized... so long as she was at the right point in her heat cycle. Annie

9/16/07 From what I have experienced, the number of puppies seems to be more influenced by heredity from both sides, as long as they mated several times.....One line, Mother and daughters had 6-9 puppies. Another line, mother and daughters had 4-6 pupppies. This has followed through in all the lines I have breed. But, the male surely does factor in there also. I have one male who produces 1 to 3 puppies no matter who he is breed to. Lorenne
