Do you sell a solid base for it? What should I put on the bottom?
People often tell us the box would be "perfect" if it comes with a sealed solid base. Our opinion is a solid base may be great for cleaning, but it's not the safest setup for whelping. One of the biggest risks with whelping is the mother lying on top of a puppy and killing it. This could happen either when the mother is lying on a pup against the side walls (hence the crush rail around the sides), or a puppy sneaking UNDER the bedding, so the mum accidentally lies on top and crushing it. With a sealed hard base, a bed will have to sit inside the box with all the edges exposed, so it is harder to prevent puppies from sneaking under it.
So we believe the safest way to lay the bottom is:
- Firstly lay something waterproof, like a piece of plastic sheet, tarp or vinyl flooring. If you are going to use the whelping box more than once, we recommend using vinyl flooring. They only cost around $20 a metre at Bunnings (the rolls are usually 2m wide). They sit smooth and flush on the floor, will not move or slide around, are very durable and very easy to clean. Cut the piece a bit larger than the box, have at least 10cm overhang on each side.
- Secondly, place your vet bedding on top of waterproof layer. The bedding should also be a couple centremetres bigger than the box (all our whelping box bedding are cut this way, so you won't have to order a size up), so the weight of the whelping box will hold down the sides of the bedding and all the edges are OUTSIDE of the whelping box. Puppies will not be able to sneak under the bed this way. If you are using an electric heat pad, it should be placed under the vet bedding so the puppies cannot chew on it. Finally the actual whelping box goes on top of everything.

Wish I bought one of these earlier!By: Catherine Bruce on 25 January 2024Wish I bought one of these for the first litter. Only thing is I wish there was a door on it for mum to exit and enter the pen while puppies are still small I’ve just left a couple of bars off on one side for her to come and go and will put them back in when puppies start moving around
