Shipping a puppy by itself to a new location always sounds cruel and embarrassing, but actually we think it is harder for us than the puppy(s).With our years of Shipping Experiences. We know for a fact that all of the pups are well taken care of. So if you stop and think about it, the airlines are not going to mistreat the puppy(s) for fear of lawsuits and customer dissatisfaction. Most importantly the puppies do not travel by themselves, they travel along with an agent also referred to as a *Puppy Nanny*, who care for the puppies making sure they are offered food, clean water and other treats during the flight right up to the time the puppy is delivered to the destination.
The average flight is approximately 4 to 6 hours. We always ask about any delays or layovers and know the exact times and departures of the flights, so we know where the puppies are and we are able to give you the information as well.

The Puppy will arrive the same day as they are sent–usually a few hours. We have a big fluffy bed of shredded newspapers in the crate for the puppy/puppies to nestle in as well as a blanket which has the mothers smell. We usually include a pig’s ear chew (they love them), and a toy or sock with my scent on it–to help the pup feel secure.

We consider shipping as an option and we make the shipping arrangements; this is because most often we find suitable homes for our puppies but they might not be located within a driving distance. I can guess what question you have in mind right now, ‘Flying a Puppy’! Is it safe? This question is often asked. We certainly wouldn’t consider it if it wasn’t.

“We asked this question to the agents of the shipping company on our first attempt to ship a puppy some couple of years back, and this was the answer we got “When we book a flight for a puppy it is only on safe and approved Airlines that have pet-safe programs that Follow USDA guidelines ” The puppy will have the same air as the pilot flying the plane & someone will be there to cater for him/her on board and off the plane until delivery is completed.

When we go to book a flight for our pets, we always call ahead and find the most direct flight available (much as if you were looking for a flight for yourself) Our puppies have always arrived safe and sound in their new homes, he even went further to say that “it is better and more comfortable to fly a puppy on a 2-6 hours flight than drive with that puppy for 4 hours or more”. And that we believe so much because we know they are professionals and will deliver the puppy safely.

What about shipping in the winter –is it not too cold?

If you decide on a dog, I will guarantee -as I have many years of experience that he/she will arrive safe and sound. Dogs can be shipped safely between 20 and 85 degrees--AA rules. All dogs ride in the belly of the plane where the temperature is kept at a comfortable 70 degrees--same as for the passengers--and they are the last on and first off the plane. Shipping during this time of year is completely safe and there is no problem so we need not to be afraid about that. Just like a person getting on a flight to go meet their relatives and/or friends for the holidays, shipping a dog is very similar-and probably even a little easier. The only thing different about this time of year is that the airlines can be strict on the minimum temperature at each location (which is really good for the dog(s) even though the plane is always kept at 70 degrees. I believe it is mainly for their liability and protection. Likewise, in the summertime--they will not ship if temperatures are too hot along the way. If this is the case, we will just wait for the next best day to ship or ship earlier or later in the day to combat the hot/cold part of the day.

What is involved in the shipping process?

Since I am 30 minutes from my nearest airport and do not charge extra for delivery like most breeders, I try to make each trip count as much as possible by taking multiple puppies at a time while striving to accommodate to your specified times. Therefore it helps me greatly if you can specify multiple times/days you (or any other person with ID) would be available to pick up the dog. So if you are interested in having one of the dogs after all amounts have been received, I am able to book the dog. I will need to know the day(s) and time(s) you are able to pick up the dog(s) your nearest airport, and your home address and phone number.

Usually, I can only book a flight a day in advance so they are aware of the temperatures for shipping. After I have booked the dog, I will call and/or email you with the flight number times, and location where the dog(s) is to be picked up. All you need to do is pick up the dog at your airport--taking a couple forms of identification, like a driver's license or insurance card and the airway bill number that I give you. Then I ask individuals to contact me as soon as possible after they receive their dog as I'm very anxious to hear about the dog--if everything went ok --what you think--and any other questions you might have.
