Don't forget some extra pads for your whelping box!
Match Breed & Box

For heavy duty boxes please consider our partner Glendale Farm Collies. (Please tell them we sent you.)

Whelping Box Size

Consider the following when selecting a size for your whelping box:
  • The weight of the bitch
  • The size of the bitch
  • Number of puppies in the litter
  • Temperament of the bitch
We suggest that you measure the rectangular space occupied by your bitch when she is lying down, fully stretched out. Then give her a foot or so extra, and remember to add several inches on each side if you will be using rails.

Then compare that area to the dimensions of our boxes:
  • XX-Small: 20" x 26.5" x 12"
  • X-Small: 26.5" x 31.5" x 13"
  • Small: 34" x 36" x 17"
  • Medium: 41" x 41" 17"
  • Large: 46.5" x 46.5" x 17"
The table below can be used as a guide. Consider our XX-Small size for Teacup Dogs & Puppies.
