Hi, Our lab is due this weekend with her first litter. She is a very laid back girl who loves to be near us so I am wondering if its ok to put her whelping box near our kitchen. I keep reading to put it in a quiet corner in a private room, but I feel like she would rather be close to us. Anyone have feedback to this? Also- what is the best material to line the box with? I have read so many different things. Thank you!
