There's this box: http://www.thewhelpingbox.com/id2.html
Holy cow! $850!!!

What about making one out of composite wood? (the fake wood stuff that lasts forever?)

Update: I spoke with a breeder (who breeds a different breed, not Tams) and she suggested NOT using composite wood because it could off-gas. That would be bad... so no composite wood for us. She also said painting the whelping box is a bad idea. But then I see boxes for sale on eBay that are polyurethaned. That can't be good either. AND there are opponents to plastic, too... what on earth to do? :lol:
One great suggestion was to have a permanent whelping room where the floor is tiled and the walls are tiled 3 feet up. That'll definitely be on our "to do" list once we buy our new house.

Anyone have other ideas?

Rahne, where did you find this box (pictured above)? I imagine shipping overseas would be expensive--but is there a brand name I could look up? Thanks!

bark as if no one can hear you
catch the ball on the fly
lick like there's no end to kissing
sleep on a sofa nearby
jump like the sky is the limit
sit by the fire with friends
stay with the ones who love you
run like the road never ends

Tell me about it - if I didn't knew it was normal in the breed I would be starting to worry :lol:

I will probably be getting this one for Konah:

It's made of Polycarbonate and Aliminium, it's strong but very lightweight and easy to clean.
I've also started shopping, just ordered a puppypen today :)
I liked this one very much (was thinking of buying one too), till I saw this one in use with a litter Saarloos Wolfdogs. It was not solid at all :? , too easy to move for the pups , not high enough. But maybe there is a difference in quality.

We had one made of "watervastende multiplex"

Good luck with Konah ;)

Hello Debby, I really like those old photos and I hope your new house has a larger living space than your old place. Look forward to seeing your website updated after the holidays once you've organized out everything and get your internet back on in your new home. Anyways, best of luck and Happy Holidays!

Thanks... but it doesn't... hahaha
my old apartment was massive: around 100m2 of living space with 2 large bedrooms, 2 balconies, a large living room, big kitchen, large office, 2 bathrooms, etc.
my new house is about half that size, since I really don't NEED all that space (and it's much easier to keep clean) but it has a 400m2 garden so it's much better suited for dogs. ;)

Thanks and yes, hope to have all my websites updated in the not-too-distant future! :)

I started off with Shay in a pen and she slept in it at night. Kizzy slept in her bed next to her so she had the company of the cat but not of me. She dosent seam to have seperation issues as she has been use to being "Denned" since I first got her.

Now that she is bigger she sleeps in her Den at night and I dont hear a peep out of her all night (not even during a recent thunder storm)She can come and go as she pleases while I'm home and has a bed in the corner of the sitting room as well.

Kizzy's bed is still next to her's but at night Shay goes in her Den and kizzy sleeps up stairs in Tracy's room.

Shay likes to sit in the doorway of her den as I sit on the seat at the end of the sofa. I quite often "Feel" her encroaching on me and a wet nose on my ear. Then it developes into an over the sholder cuddle and then before I know it she's on my lap and knocking the things off the wee table with her long ganglie legs.....She's funny...

I recently got given a load of wood flooring so we now have an actual floor in the sitting room and there was enough to line the walls in her Den and I put in a shelf to keep a few essentials. Cleanning stuff, Dust pan and brush, treat's, collars and candles for the power cut's (nice to have to hand) I made a wolf carving years ago and it now hangs on her door.

That is ADORABLE! I hope when I get my new house (soooon!!!) I can build a cupboard like that. My dad leaves a lot of extra timber floating around so I may just steal some for my house ;)

Wow! REALLY cool! I cannot wait to own my own place, and be able to do things like that! :/ Dreaming is fun, though.
For now, just waiting for the money to get an outdoor kennel with a cover due to my "escape artist", along with a new inside kennel.....it's being helpd with zip ties and the wall right now.... :shock: :?
