The Whelping House
For those wondering where the little ones are raised.

We built the whelping house for less stress on everyone.  It would drive the house dog crazy!!!! Which in turn would drive the rest of us crazy. And we all need a little downtime, and mom would like some privacy I'm sure. We all have what we need in the Whelping House it works out great for us and nothing is left out such as socialization or care.

 

The bed. You got to sleep on something while awaiting the new arrivals, & the floor is awfully hard!! Just add pillows and blanket!

Pups are weighed and measured @ birth and daily weights are taken and recorded to make sure everyone is gaining as needed. We place colored ribbon on each dog at birth so we are tracking the proper puppy.

The puppy scale and chart paperwork.

 

The walls are covered with a non-toxic plastic material, which makes for easy clean up!
