Fab systems are back! Including our brand new Fab 3x3 Whelping Box!

Whelping Box Size, by Breed

We suggest that you measure the rectangular space occupied by your bitch when she is lying down, fully stretched out. Then add a foot or so, and remember to add several inches on each side if you will be using rails.

Then compare that area to the inside dimensions of our boxes:

  • Classic Value 2828: 27" x 27"
  • Classic Value 3838: 36.5" x 36.5"
  • Classic Value 4848: 46" x 46"
  • Fab System 3x3: 36" x 36"
  • Fab System 4x4: 47" x 47"
  • Fab System 4x6: 47" x 71"
  • Fab System "Whopper" 7x6: 82" x 71"

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
Use the table below as a general guide. Classic
