Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Typically a pet only has to lock once. The main issue is the timing, because each pet is more fertile at different times in the cycle. Your vet can perform an LH surge test to determine when your pet is most fertile for implantation.

Another factor is sperm quality. Which is a bit harder to determine. Mother nature plays a major role and not everything can be controlled when trying to get pets impregnated. Sometimes people resort to artificial insemination if they are having difficulty.
Oh how exciting! I wish you the best. Is this your first pregnant dog?
I don't see a reason to unless she is acting ill or abnormal?
You will just have to wait until the next mentrual cycle to try again. You can try and time it to get her hormones tested and determine the best time to try for implantation as I mentioned earlier.
