Is shipping really safe for the puppy?
A: Shipping a puppy by itself to a new location always sounds cruel
and embarrassing, but actually it is not esp with based USA airlines.
With my many years of shipping experience, I 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
lawsuit and customer dissatisfaction.
I tape puppy(s) food and feeding instructions to the top of the crate
and put frozen water in the crate, so it will gradually thaw out for
the puppy(s) and the puppies are offered food along the ride. The
average flight is approximately 4 to 7 hours. I always ask about any
delays or layovers and know the exact times and departures of the
flights, so I know where the pup is and am able to give you the
information as well. The pup will arrive the same day as it is sent
usually a few hours. I have a big fluffy bed of shredded newspapers in
the crate for the puppy(s) to nestle in and usually a pig’s ear chew
(they love them), and a toy or sock with my scent on it to help the
pup feel secure.
How is a puppy Shipped?
A: Ship by Airlines. Shipping is available to all U.S. destinations &
Canada . Shipping charges vary depending upon location. Shipping costs
include air fare, the puppy’s shipping crate (pet taxi), vet health
certificate and a puppy care packet. The packet includes a bag of the
puppy food that he/she is accustomed to and puppy care information.
Delivery is typically counter to counter service. Puppies will travel
in a pressurized compartment that’s temperature controlled. The cost
of shipping by airlines is $100.00 – $150.00 depending on destination
– Ship by Specialized Ground Service
You also have the option of having your puppy delivered by van right
to your doorstep using a Pet Transport service that delivers to all
destinations in the continental U.S. Cost for this service varies for
distance and location. This is the most expensive of the two ways to
get your puppy delivered.
Can i travel to pick up my puppy?
Yes, you are always welcome to travel over to pick up your puppy
after purchase and usually traveling with your puppy in most Airlines
requires no additional fee for flying with a puppy apart from personal
flight fee. Nevertheless, Some Airlines demand an extra fee anyway.
What about shipping in the winter is it not too cold?
A: If you decide on a puppy, We will guarantee as we have for yrs that
he/she will arrive safe and sound. Puppies can be shiped safely
between 20 and 85 degrees–AA rules. All puppies 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
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 puppy 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 puppy(s) even though the plane is always
kept at 70 degrees.
We 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.
NB * Most shippers specialized in shipping pets will use a temperature
regulation crate called an electronic crate.These type of crates are
used anytime since they can regulate the temperature to the one best
for the puppy(s) travel.
Any recommendations on which VET to use?
A: Usually small-town vets are best. Word gets around small towns
very quickly & if a vet has bad practices… small towns will talk
Usually (not always) small town vets are more inexpensive as well.
Also Try to search for a vet in your area & see reviews of consumers
in your area as well. IMPORTANT DO NOT USE BANFIELD HOSPITALS (AS PART
OF PETS MART CHAIN STORES) NOR VCA HOSPITALS. Your warranty will be
void if you take your new one to Banfield or VCA. We’ve seen too many
misdiagnosis, over medicated, & EXTREMELY HIGH VET BILLS. These two
clinics are in it for the money!
I just pick up my Aussie from the Airport. Does she needs a Vaccines?
A. Do not give your new puppy any vaccines within the first 14 days of
arrival. Your new puppy is all up to date on shots before living our
home and will not need a vaccine for at least weeks. Many Vets will
attempt to issue a vaccine so that they can make additional money.Do
not get any vaccine on your first Vet visit as the puppy will need
time to adjust and you do not need any additional stress on him or her
* Nevertheless, when you pick up your puppy, it is necessary to go
