I have a whelping box that I made a couple years ago, but it's very heavy. I'm thinking about getting a Dura-whelp box. Have any of you used a dura-whelp before - and if so, is it worth the money?

I have not used one, but i know folks who have, and i have seen them up close. I really like them, but, i just could not justify the price on them. hubby made me a whelping box using the design of the durawhelp. Mine is made out of wood, that is covered with a really tough white epoxy coating. He used plastic wood, to design some of the other elements, such as the puppy rail inside, which is removable, and the opening is slotted so plastic wood boards can be put in to keep the little ones in the box. The box is a bit big for our breed, but, its easy for me to get into as well if i need to be in there. I can sit inside the box while mom is whelping.

The nice thing about the durawhelp is that it is so incredibly light and easy to clean up....also easy to assemble/disassemble and store.

It does however...have a great "chew" factor for any dogs that happen to be chewers.

I worried a little about the chew factor. I've got a little time to decide.

AnkhuIGs, where did you get the epoxy coating for the whelping box? That sounds interesting.

I'd love to know as well. I have asked at the local chain hardware stores, but no one knows what I am talking about.
