Hello, a friend of mine who is an experienced carpenter I building us a whelping box for my standard size labradoodle momma, I need to give him measurements and pictures of exactly what I want... what type of door do you think will work best in your opinion, hinge, ramp or insert? Has anyone built their own, if so, what advice would you give?

Amber Cassidy Sikes We used the slide in door for ours. It’s not bad, but looking back I wish I would have used the hinge door. I think it would have been much easier. We have Miniature Schnauzers who stay inside all 8 wks and during the day sliding the door off makes it easy for Mama to go in and out when she wants. We only leave the door on at night, until puppies get bigger.

Carolyn Zagami When I had a wood whelping box, we used a piano hinge across the front piece so we could drop it down flat or easily lift it up. We had slide locks on each side at the top. It l stayed out of our way, so we didn't need much clearance to open and close it. (Now I use the Costco PVC raised garden bed, which is easy to build, clean and store, and light weight.) If you do use wood, you must seal or paint it completely, or it will absorb liquid and harbor bacteria. We used melamine shelving pieces, with a solid white finish.

Michelle Andrews I have never heard of this, everyone I have ever know that has had 2 from the same litter have been just fine. Only issue is if maybe you get 2 alfa females.

Sarah Anderson I have almost 4 year old litter mates, a male & female. I will tell you, I was warned. We worked very hard to give them separate interests & work them separately. They love each other and are bonded with us. It can be difficult. I would imagine it depends on breed & owner/situation.

Shawna Lopez I’ve always gotten puppies in pairs. It is important that they spend individual time with them, both in obedience training and play, and treat them independently. Separate crates (but they can be side by side for comfort). Also make sure they follow through with spay/neuter at appropriate time.

The key is to not make the pups dependent on each other 24/7.

Melanie Locke Not problematic if pups are socialize, trained and seperated occasionally. Any two animals (litter mates or not) can have those same issues. I would make sure if you sell littermates they are compatible in personality...just as someone else mentioned not a dominate puppy and a weaker runt etc.

Lyric Anderson I wouldnt really be worried about aggression just the annoyance of separation anxiety. Ive always had pairs and i feel it actually eases the transition and gives them a little comfort. As long as they aren't aggressive prior to selling i think they will be fine. Its up to the owners to train accordingly

Liz Dimbleby Crate train separately. Spend individual training time with each dog as often as possible. Have pups off independently frequently so they get used to not being together and so not totally dependent on each other. Our 3 are outside dogs for a number of reasons and this has worked really well.

Tom L Beatty Jr. What breeds? I have hounds and have kept 4 from first litter 2 from 2nd and one from 3rd... got puppies now and am planing to keep 2. I have not noticed any problems and they hunt real well together, like hounds should in a pack and honoring each other when they find a track. They play together when at home and eat next to each other without issue.

Does anyone use Toltrazuril at 5 weeks as a preventative for coccidia? Or should I wait until 6 weeks and give at the same time I give fenbendazole? Currently I do Pyrantel at 2 and 4 weeks and then fenbendazole at 6 and 8 weeks and I get a fecal done at 7 weeks to make sure all is clear to send home in puppy packs. Adding in toltrazuril for the first time because I read good things about it on here. When should I give it?

Pic of my puppies to not get lost☺️
Michelle Larson #1 reason why we are seeing a rise in resistant parasites and bacteria is an over use and misuse of medications. If they don't have it, don't give it.
Jane Conway Michelle Larson I'm with you . Too much too young is that why allergies are the top dog ailment nowadays
