We weren't sure this was going to live up to its promises, but knowing Petco's satisfaction guarantee we decided to give it a try--it turned out to be even better than we expected!
With a 48" square whelping box, I purchased the large size pad and cut it in half with household scissors. That way, we had a clean one in the box and one in the washer at all times. It has a rubbery, non-skid backing that keeps it from shifting around in the box or kiddie pool, and seems to keep urine from soaking through as well.
After trying all sorts of blankets, pads, and towels, this is pretty much miraculous. Even if it had only lasted through the one litter, it would have been worth every penny, but we are now through litter #2 with the same pads. I even bought another one so I could change them out more often and wash three at a time.
The pieces of the first liner have now been through the washer no less than 40 times, and they are still holding up--and holding urine. They do eventually get a bit pilled, especially if you wash them with towels or something that sheds, but the backing has held up fine and they never fray or fall apart. I have made a point to wash in warm or cold water, never hot. Like anything rubbery, don't put them in the dryer but hang them to dry, which doesn't take long.
After breeding dogs for the last 20 years, this was a real work-saver for us.
I would recommend this to a friend!

It works great when its new. Don't wash in washing machine because it pills real bad. Looks like junk after you machine wash. I have others I will try to wash and dry by hand, which I am not too happy about.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

This Whelping Box Liner is terrific. I wish I had known about it 8 years ago. I bought two. My whelping box is 48" x 48" so the liner fit great. I am very satisfied with this product!
I would recommend this to a friend!

This has made my life with puppies so much easier. I actually bought 2 so that I always have a clean dry one to go. I also use it so that I can protect my floors and rugs when the puppies are out of the whelping bed and spending time with the family in the living room. I don't need to worry when they have an accident! Great product. Lesson learned...don't wash with any fleece pet bedding because it causes this product to pill. Washed alone it comes out beautiful.
I would recommend this to a friend!
