Good Old Fashioned Carpentry and Construction  

whelping box photograph

After many requests for the good old-fashioned wood whelping box we have engaged a GREAT carpenter to custom-make boxes for us.  The boxes are made with premium plywood, built with solid construction and made to last.

Whelping boxes are offered either painted or unpainted. The unpainted box is sanded and ready to paint.  If you choose the painted option, the box is hand painted, using 3 coats of paint.  The first coat is an oil-based sealer, then 2 coats of latex paint to make it very “scrub-able” and easy to clean.

We designed our whelping box from the time honored whelping box standard, offering 2 different styles of doors, either hinged (shown) or slide (see drawing)
The whelping box is easy to assemble, un-assemble and store. Removable pins in the hinged corners make each side easy to put together and take apart, something you can do by yourself

Custom orders or changes are welcome; we will provide you with a specific quote for your specific needs.  We build each box one at a time, so please allow extra time for changes.

We suggest that you allow 4-6 weeks from order time to delivery.  Rush orders will be considered, but an additional fee will be charged.

Shipping rates vary depending on location. Please call us so we may give you an accurate quote. 1 888 281 4867 toll free.

We still believe in doing business the old fashioned way, by talking to our clients to make sure that we have every detail the way YOU would like it.

Sheepskin Style Fleece Pad:

This is not your everyday fleece. This is a thick sheepskin type pile, not the thin pads sold with most whelping boxes.  The canvas backing provides stability so if Mom "nests" it is very difficult for her to dig it up. It is machine washable too!

pig rails for whelping box
The pig rails are glued and screwed. This adds strength and long lasting durability to our whelping box. They also have added bracing underneath, for ultimate support of  each rail.

corner brace for whelping box
We have made a corner brace that fits on each of the four corners. These braces make a convenient place to set bottles, and supplies while working around the whelping box, as well as helping to prevent "escapees" up the corner of the whelping box.
