|Give your mama an EZwhelp whelping box.|
Cater to your mama's den instinct and give her a good nest. Make it comfortable and familiar to her before she delivers. Use EZwhelp waterproof pads for comfort and protection in your box. They are great for mama and the pups, and they make cleanup much easier.

This allows for four EZwhelp door configurations: 1) no door (completely open), 2) full door (completely closed), 3) low step-over door, and 4) high step-over door.
The footprints below show the basic whelping box sizes (approximate scale) with optional extension walls attached. For Medium and Large sizes multiple extension walls can be attached (as shown for the Medium size). The extension walls do not have floors and are not rigid.

PVC Pig Rails.
Rails are used, particularly for larger breeds, to protect the puppies. Mamas sometimes roll over on their pups and inadvertently hurt them. The rails are set a few inches away from the wall. This gives the puppies a "get away" space. Mom is deterred from laying on them and the puppies get some smaller space of their own.
Our optional rail kit is comprised of PVC fittings and 3/4 inch furniture grade piping pre-cut to match our boxes. The pieces require simple assembly. No cutting or gluing is required. The Large and Medium rails include wooden dowels inserted inside the piping for added strength.
We recommend rails for box sizes Small, Medium, and Large.
Unlike common "shelf rails" (rails which have a flat surface) your puppies will not be using these rails as "steps" to view the outside world--or steps to escape over the edge of your whelping box. But mama may use them to rest her head.
Order the pig rails with a whelping box, or separately in our store.Transparent Front Door.
No need to look over the whelping box walls with this optional see-through front door. You've earned a break. Sit down on your couch and watch your puppies through this clear acrylic front door.
This full height 5/16" transparent front door slides down into the door grooves of our Small, Medium, and Large size whelping boxes. You (and your puppies) will be delighted.
Order your clear acrylic front door on our whelping supplies page.Corrugated Plastic.
The walls of our whelping boxes are not rigid. Corrugated plastic (polypropylene) is flexible, but tough and light. EZwhelp boxes are value-oriented boxes emphasizing high strength to weight ratios. Under normal use, your box will serve for many litters.
Clean the plastic with general purpose detergents and disinfectants, including bleach. This material used together with our whelping pads will ensure that your box is clean and tidy throughout the whelping process. The use of our washable pads will dramatically reduce your cleanup effort.
