Pet nap Whelping Box Information
A Pet nap whelping box, also known as a birthing box, whelping pen and nesting box. The box is used in order to protect the puppies after the whelping process is completed and during the early stages of life when they are most vulnerable. The petnap whelping box keeps them safely contained away from the cold, most whelping boxes also contain rails or poles around the lower edges of which we get asked all the time what these are for and the short answer is they stop the mother crushing the puppies up against the sides of the box which could cause the puppies to become suffocated as well as being crushed.
