I have known bitches ovulate much later than day 15 as late as day 23 with a following litter of eight pups have also known of a beardie that missed twice with blood tests and was mated third time on only day 7 using the ovulation pads with five pups in her litter the following year she was mated again on day 7 and had another litter of five
Personally I have used the pads and Mate tel which is a ‘fern’ tester and depends on changing salt levels in the bitch’s saliva.
When I handled a friends stud dog the bitches that had the pre mate blood tests always came too early to the stud he was a good boy and always knew the right time usually with the pre mate it was 24 hours later than the vets go time

Sorry it’s not much help if only it was an exact science we would all be happy.
