I have a question about dog behavior?

when a human is handling one of her (the dogs) puppies, will the mom dog supervise the human?

If you have declared yourself as the alpha male or alpha female, the mother would trust you to do whatever to puppies

Yes, this is just like a human mother. They will always have their eyes on you when their precious baby is in someone else's hands:) The mother dog will watch you when you're handling her puppies:)

if the mom is with her babies she will fight you if she thinks your being a threat

Very much so. I suggest you handle puppies as little as possible. If there are strangers around no one should handle the puppies.

Two Tony is correct. If the mother trusts you there will be no problem with you handling them. When my schnauzer had her puppies, she wasn't cleaning them up. The afterbirth was covering their whole heads. She didn't mind a bit when I cleaned each one up.
