    I have a question about this. Do they wait until the bitch goes into labor for the c-section or do they base it on time. There must be complication risks to both mom & pups to consider as well.

    I think they base it on time. They'll have the owner/breeder watch the temp of the bitch, and watch for the "water breaking".. or mucous plug/discharge. If bulldogs try to give birth, they have dystocia.. which is difficult labor or abnormally slow labor. And with dogs giving birth, you want to be passing a fetus every 2 hours.
