    Hey! I was wondering if anyone could help me, my dog has just had puppies 4 days ago and had moved them from her welping box to the sofa, now it’s not that I mind it’s just the fear of on of them falling we have tried moving them back into there bed and she just keeping going back and forth we put a cage round it and she even went as far and trying to just over it with a pup in her mouth we are now spending all day and all night awake aswell just incase one falls but I just can’t get her back into the pen, I thought it was maybe the heated blakent under her vet bedding that was annoying her and I turned it off also her bed is beside the sofa so she’s in the living room with us all any suggestions on what I should do?

    She might be happier in a more secluded part of the house, and if you have a spare bedroom or something like that, you can block off access to the bed by putting things on it, or turn it on its side. If everything is at floor level, there's no risk of the pups being put on something, then falling off.

    For whatever reason she has become concerned about the whelping box. They tend to move pups when they don't feel 'safe' (this may be because something doesn't smell right or feel right (yes, it could have been the heat) or too many people have been interrupting her). As Burrowzig says, she may be happier in a more secluded area of the house where you can control what she has access to and she can feel 'safe' again.
