what does the normal shipping cost?
Most of the time I like to use Delta , American Airlines, and some times Delta as they have provided me with quality service. International 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 Alaska and Hawaii also available at select times and may cost slightly more. I am only able to ship within the US, Canada & Puerto Rico at this time, although I have had individuals to fly in from other countries to pick up a puppy(s). Shipping has been running
approximately $300 which includes, health certificate. If 2 puppies are being purchased at the same time, from the same litter, they can be flown together in a larger crate for $180 . When sending me your airport's address, please send 2 different airports that you would be willing to travel to pick up the puppy(s)
Is it really safe for the puppy, Won't he/she be scared, How long does it take, Won't it be difficult for the puppy having to be all alone in a crate for so long?
This is how we explain the shipping process to individuals to help them feel more at ease with the process of getting a puppy: Shipping a Puppy Is Very safe: See Below Details
Shipping a puppy by itself to a new location always sounds cruel and embarrassing, but actually I think it is harder for us than the puppy(s). We use Delta, Continental or American airlines to ship the puppy(s) depending on the shipping agency available at that moment. With 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 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
6 hours. We 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.
