Once her water breaks and her cervix dilates, your dog still has some time before beginning the abdominal contractions that will force out her puppies. This pre-whelping stage of labor typically lasts between 6 and 12 hours, during which time she'll seem nervous, and may pant excessively or throw up.
When water breaks on its own before labor begins, the majority of people go into labor within 24 hours. Fetal distress: Uncommonly, breaking the bag of waters can result in fetal distress.

I didn't read all the replies, so sorry if this repeative, but yes, my water broke without anything else happening. Broke at 8:30, went to hospital, dr confirmed amniotic fluid, gave the option to stay or go home and be sure to come back within 12 hours.
But if the water breaks without any signs of labor and the gestational age is less than 37 weeks, this is called preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM). Depending on how far along the pregnancy is, this can be a minor concern or a potentially devastating and tragic situation.
Any time there is a rupture or leak in the amniotic membrane, it opens an entryway for germs and infection.
