whelping box plan


keep your puppies warm

For the first week new born pups cannot control their body temperature

The body of a puppy contains enough fat to ward of the cold for a few days.
But the strain on your small pets body is immense and can lead to ill health.

Hypothermia may result if a new born pup is not kept comfortable and warm.
Good temperature control is essential for small pups and other small animals.

A whelping box is required to create a safe area for pets that are giving birth.
Puppies should be contained in an area that has climate control and security.

Building a pets nesting box

ag   Second hand material may be used in the construction of your pets nesting box. Check that all purchased building material is free from sharp obstacles and has not been coated with paint that may be toxic for puppies.

The essential parts of the plan for the whelping box are :
  • ....       The correct size to suit your pet when she is laying down
  • ....       A warm and weather proof temporary home for your pet
  • new
  • ....       Keeping the weight of the box low so relocation is simple
  • ....       Protective rails that can provide an escape for the puppies
To build a nesting box using the free plan requires simple tools and basic skill
The overall appearance of the box is not important. Whelping boxes are generally used for a limited amount of time to house pups. Converting an existing box that has been used for another purpose into a whelping pen is also an option. The main consideration would be to remove all sharp edges and objects from the used box. A second hand box that has been used to store ANY chemicals should not be converted into a whelping box. Don't forget to check out our linked partners special offer.

© Copyright pet heaters whelping box and building a nesting box

To build and heat a pets nesting box the materials you use will be the deciding factor on the
useful life of the whelping box. The use of any material coated or treated with chemicals that
may be toxic to your pet should be avoided. Pets cannot be constantly supervised and it is not
unusual for them to chew on their enclosures and resting areas. The heated pet nesting pen
you build should not have the enclosures floor resting on the ground. Resting the box in direct
contact with the ground can create mildew and make the whelping box cold and damp.
Rodent control will also be difficult. Face the opening away from any prevailing winds. When
using any tools be sure that the proper safety equipment and safety procedures are used at all
times. Read and understand all instruction books supplied with any tools and always maintain a
clean / safe working area. Never work around children or pets or let them in the work area unsupervised. The free plans are for personal use only and have all been built and tested for strength and operation and to my knowledge they are correct and accurate. The plans are supplied without warranties and guarantee and you acknowledge that you use them and operate all tools and equipment at your sole risk. The choice of any building plans for small pets found on this web site and the suitability for the chosen project is entirely your responsibility. You agree to indemnify petheaters from any claims, damages, personal injuries and expenses in regards to any building projects and plans found on this web site.
