The Journey Begins

Our Story

Since 2008, The Whelping Shop has been carefully developed by experienced pedigree breeders who have seen the need for fellow breeders/groomers to access specialty and quality products quickly and reliably.

Over the years, The Whelping Shop has also become popular with vet hospitals, rescue groups and shelters, zoos and wildlife reserves, government breeding facilities and universities.

We are located in Harlowton, Montana USA, and we have ware houses in Ramsgate, United Kingdom. The Whelping Shop is owned, run and loved by Joe Hilman, a Great Dane show exhibitor and breeder, and qualified physiotherapist with special interests and qualifications within paediatrics, animals and ergonomic design. Joe has 4 Great Danes, 2 cats, 2 budgies, a horse, and a tolerant Wife.

 
Our Vision

FOR BREEDERS/GROOMERS, BY BREEDERS
Our ethos underpins our purpose. We are here to help, we understand, we have likely been there. We appreciate that you might not have eaten, slept or showered for several days as you are doing 2-hourly feeds of 16 puppies 24/7 and that you are at your wits end. We understand that you need your order NOW. Or yesterday.

Regardless of your situation, we are here to help. If it is your first litter, you have been breeding for 50 years and never had problems before, you are fostering a rescue dog with puppies, or even if you have had an accidental litter, don’t be shy about asking for advise if you need it.
