    Does anyone know of a good website or company that makes whelping boxes? Ive seen the plastic ones used and they get chewed and fail. Is there a website that sells a nice WOOD whelping box at a good price?

    Here's a couple of sites that show you how to build one...........don't know if you are so inclined, but it seems odd to me to buy one. I'm not a breeder, haven't whelped anything so what do I know? LOL

    May I ask when is your bitch due? What breed is she? and perhaps recommend you introduce yourself in the "member introductions" area? :)

    Oooh I really like that second link!! I am getting a second hand whelping box from a retired Lab breeder. Once I see it I may have to make a few adjustments and add seats (seriously those are wicked cool LOL!).

    We made our own with PC pipes for safety rails that could be removed as the pups got older .
