This is not safe for your dog or the puppies to do. While there are chemicals that can induce labor (prescription only) you may not have a live litter and the mother may not properly care for any pups that do survive.
It really is best to let the dog go into labor as it needs to with the right timing so the pups have gestated long enough to be viable when born.
Hope this helps you!
