I don't know if this has been mentioned, but I prefer the "Snuggle Safe" heating disc. This is what we used to use in the vet clinic for patients that needed to be kept warm. It is microwaveable, holds heat very nicely and for a long time and won't burn skin. You can tuck it in any zipper bed or just put it on top of or under blankets etc. I sware by it and when I finally breed a litter it will be what I use. Here is a link.http://www.jefferspet.com/ssc/produc...snuggle%20safe

I use a heating pad that is wraped with a thin blanket. And have the heat setting on low. I have the heating pad away from the mom that way if the pups crawl away from her they stay warm. I used a small fire place with my last litter to keep it warm in the whelping room but I am going to probably use a small wall propane heater with my next litter (it won't take up as much space as a fireplace and I won't smoke myself out on accident again!).

showpug- I like the "Snuggle Safe" heating disc but, I don't have a microwave so it wouldn't work to well for me (we have a solar/generator runned house, so no microwave).

Just got into this !!! Manchester , we agree !!!! I used a box with a heating pad and towel as the pups were whelped .... putting them back with Mom between births. My whelping pen was wooden 3 sides too....I too would cover the top to make a cozy den. My garage was off the family room and with furnace door open, was basically nice and warm. With goldens being a fuzzy breed , I only used a heat lamp once...I really didn't like too warm conditions for the pups, Mom kept them warm and she would get too hot . I really think it conditions the pups better and there's less chance of infections when the air isn't to warm. When they were old enough to have "playtime " in the garage they all seemed to stake out cool places to crash !

Yeah, we cook quite a bit. It actually is not hard to live without a microwave!
