Here is a good site: http://www.breederbase.com/whelpingbox/ ... oxsize.htm

They suggest a Medium box or 40"x40"x20"

Of course they sell them, but i know someone who built one just like they sell. They built theirs from plywood mostly and just put a ton of poly on it. Cleans up really easy and you can take it down when your done. I think the rails are pretty important to prevent mom from squishing the pups.
