I was hoping to get a response back but I don't want you going to long without a response. Dogs exposed to the herpes virus can lead to the loss of a litter. Subsequent litters are usual fine in that case. However, there are medical causes that can leed to decreased fertility such as hypothyroidism. Your vet could run a thyroid panel to check for that. However, the following page has a detailed chart on how to determine why a female dog is not conceiving including what diagnostic tests would need to be run.

Just a quick followup to see if you read the diagnostic chart on the site I supplied for you. It is a very comprehensive chart and covers the order in which the different diagnostic tests should be done and which ones are unnecessary based on the responses or test results. I also want to remind you that you can continue to ask followup questions on the subject even after rating.
