Okay
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 1 year ago

Typically female dogs are receptive to male dogs starting around the 7th day of the heat cycle. However, some bitches will absolutely refuse to mate with the male we have selected for them. In cases like this, artificial insemination is usually the wisest move. For this, you would take the male and female to the vet, have the male collected through manual stimulation and then the female would be inseminated with the fluid collected. Similar procedures exist for dogs that live in different areas or for whom the option of in-person breeding does not exist. You're at the perfect time to opt for this to be done if you're certain you're wanting puppies from these two dogs. Otherwise, it may be worth waiting until her next heat cycle and trying a different male next time.

How much does it usually cost
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 1 year ago

It depends on where you live, the time involved, etc. I've seen the cost as cheap as $150 and I know of breeders who have invested well over $750 each time the dog was to be AI'd. Not all clinics offer this option, either, so calling around tomorrow may help. Someone skilled in this area of vet med can be invaluable for someone in your situations as they can guide you through any concerns that might arise over the coming months, if the pregnancy takes.
