Here is our BRAND new whelping house we built in
2010. It is a 12x14 and is divided into 2 whelping pens on
We have kennels out back and at the back of each pen
are dog doors so the mothers can get outside as well.
The inside of our whelping house is JUST like a house!
There are curtains on the windows, paneling on the walls,
and it is heated and has electric! Our puppies are spoiled
rotten when they are born and it is just like they are being
raised inside our home!
Everyone is in and out all day taking care of the pups,
cleaning and sanitizing pens every day, and washing and
changing blankets for the mothers and puppies to sleep on
ALL day long! Between blankets and my regular wash my
wash machine is going all day when puppies arrive!!
We have curtains on the windows and friendly electric
candles shining in the windows! There are cupboards to keep
the supplies in and all the extra necessities!
We are planning to build a second building for the
puppies to be moved to at around 6 wks. of age and then
they will be able to get outside and play to their hearts

Many HAPPY hours are spent inside!!!
