    Newfsie I put the pups in the laundry with mum but they are in a big box not actually
    in her bed with her..At the last feed in the am I move them into the house..
    I left them out their last night and we woke up and she had gotten them out of the
    box in in her bed and was feeding them..All sounds cute until she rolls on them..
    I am very nervous about leaving them alone with her in case she does roll on them..
    When they are 2 weeks old I will leave them with her then..

    Di_dee1 we own our home so wont be moving to soon..
    Would love to see a picture of this set up you are talking about if it wouldn't be too
    much hassle for you..
    More work for the hubby to do hehehe

    Thought I had a thread on it but can't find it.

    I don't care what it looks like as long as it does the job.

    We have the fence fairly wobbly as mine don't climb and if they tried they would feel unstable. Wire is a foot or so in L shape inwards and has been covered in dirt to prevent digging.
    Some of the netting is snake netting, other is shade cloth. It is on the outside of the wire and again an L shape outwards and dirt on it.
    Hubby has also done a second outer ring of netting You can see it a bit in pic 2. It was in that ring that the snakes were caught about 2ft out from the main wire of the pen. Dogs told me each time where the snakes were by barking and staring. Out came the shotgun.



    Snakes are welcome anywhere else on the farm, just not near my house or dogs.

    Again, I am so very sorry for your loss.

    So Sorry Lucky Lady.

    I don't know what to say, we do all we can to make sure our dogs are safe and happy and they find some way we hadn't thought of to get into trouble.

    Snake proof fencing is possible. one of my friends spent a fortune on snake proofing the house yard for her dogs. Worth it for her, when she first moved in, she got rid of 10 red belly black snakes, the first season. They really liked the water around the house unfortuantely.

    We use and so does our breeder a special puppy box...It has a lip type affair that means the puppies can not be squashed as easily by the bitch.

    This is the one hubby has made for a few people...didn't cost much. We have also made one with plumber piping, it cost quite a bit

    Is that the same bird netting at Bunnings Warehouse ?
    Where would one buy this ??
    Is it actually called snake netting ??

    Is it pulled tight on our fence line or would it all be loose ?
    If it was pulled tight I would think any snake could have a better
    chance at getting through . ????

    The green is shade cloth, the white I think is called snake netting. There even is a ring further out which was done with hay baling netting. Hubby's first go at it.
    The front of our house is not enclosed or netted. They can not get through though under the house to out the back as it IS closely meshed from the verandah down to the ground again in the L shape and held in place by dirt and n shaped nails on the decking to keep it tight.

    There was a snake trail today going across the sandy dirt of the driveway quite close to the house out the front. Did a patrol of the back perimeter ( from the inside, looking out) nothing, and the dogs were not excited so hopefully it just passed through down the side into the paddocks.

    If you want more pics of it just let me know and I will take some.

    Lucky Lady I'm terribly sorry to hear about your dear boy. Very sad news.

    The first two weeks of ps is a nerve wracking time. I sleep on the couch next to the whelping box, and check them every two hours. Lack of sleep is hard, especially with other things going on in life.

    Hugs.
