For new puppy owners, it is not always easy to find a reputable breeder within a reasonable driving distance. Shipping provides a person a chance of acquiring the quality they are hoping to find.
Shipping a Puppy: Is it safe?
With my many years of shipping experience in both shipping and receiving pups, I know for a fact that all of the pups are well taken care of. I have only had a couple of incidences where the pups had a delayed flight or had an accident in there crate due to a long flight, but don't worry we put allot of shredded newspaper in the crate in case they do have an accident, so they do not sit in it. Shipping, if done properly, is no more stressful tehn if you were to come pick them up here. In fact shipping can be less stressful then driving across country with them. Even less so as shippingtakes only a few short hours and tehy usually spend longer times in thier crate overnight.
What is involved in the shipping process?
After all balances have been paid, I call the airlines and book the pup. I will need to know your nearest airport, who will pick up the pup and your address and a contact number. The day and time will depend primarily on the flight availability and temperature as well as when we both can travel to the airport. Usually, I can only book a flight a days in advance so they are aware of the temperatures for shipping. After I have booked the pup, I will email and/or call you with the flight #, times, airway bill # and location where the pup is to be picked up. Then all you need to do is pick up the pup at your airport.
It seems lengthy in explanation, but it actually goes very fast
I tape their collar, leash, toy, puppy food and a puppy packet to teh top of htier crate and put a frozen water dish in so it will gradually thaw out for the puppy.
Puppies are also offered food and additional water if needed during the trip. The pup will arriveteh same day as it is sent, within just a few hours. The average flight time is appoximatlly 3 - 6 hours and VIP trips are usually shorter.
What is the normal cost of Shipping?
At this time, I am only able to ship within the US,CANADA &AU although I have had individuals to fly in from other countries to pick up a puppy. Major airports are often the best bet, but I would be glad to check out your local airport to see if shipping is possible. Shipping to Canada, Alaska and Hawaii are available but may cost slightly more.
