Try tickling the dog's stomach until he/she is sleepy and have a look while he/she is quietly lying on his/her back. The mother licks her pups regularly; saliva promotes healing and in most puppies the hole heals cleanly. It is not always easy to see the belly button in an adult dog. If you cannot see your dog's belly button then there is no problem. The hole through which the umbilical cord entered the fetus had healed over perfectly.
