I am willing to ship puppies but only if you help me out by following these simple rules.
Currently $600 for shipping. (includes premium increase for non local pick up)
Rule # 1) "I" need to choose the shipping date. Typically this date will be on or just after the puppies' 8 week birthday. I wait to book flights until 1 week prior to shipping. This is mostly due to the fact that airline flights change regularly, and most airlines will only book flights 1-2 weeks prior to shipping date. Weather also varies so much in both winter and summer, so it is a waste of time looking or booking flights more the 1 week out. Health Certificates only last 10 days so we try to see the vet as close to the shipping date as possible in case there is a shipping delay.
Rule # 2) I Choose the flight. (Please do not go searching for flights and send me recommendations. This is typically NOT helpful BECAUSE you can't see which flights actually accept pets or if the flight is already full) I NEED AT LEAST 2 major airports in your area. Look up to 2 hours from your home and be willing to make the drive if nessesary. In all fairness, please understand that I live 1.5 hours from the airport. I have to be at the airport 2.5 hours (minimum) prior to departure.
BEFORE PUTTING YOUR DEPOSIT DOWN, PLEASE COUNT 8 WEEKS FROM YOUR PUPPIES DATE OF BIRTH AND DO NOT MAKE ANY PLANS FOR TRAVEL BETWEEN 1 DAY PRIOR TO HIS 8 WEEK BIRTH DAY AND 2 WEEKS AFTER HIS 8 WEEK BIRTHDAY!!!!
Rule # 3) Payment in full including shipping is due 1 week prior to shipping date. This is ABSOLUTELY nessesary because I have to transfer funds from Pay Pal to my checking account in order to pay for shipping. This takes 2-4 business days.
Rule # 4) Check your email. If you contact me via email, please check your email regularly. Comunication is VERY important! This is often my only way to contact you in case there is a problem.
Rule # 5) Be prepared to promptly email me the proper information when I request it. Please understand that if you cannot respond propmptly, it could delay your shipping dates as well as incurring more charges for you, due to having to make other arrangements. In addition, please be flexible on airport pick up! An alternate is very nice to have in case things do not go as planed. Not all airlines ship pets, nor do all airports accept pets. We can not just assume yours does or that my carriers will fly into your first choice. Please be flexible!
Rule # 6) It is your responsibility to be sure payment is in on time.
If you can agree to these terms then I can work with you on shipping your puppy.
Shipping ~ How it is done:
1) I will search and book your puppies flight. I have to coordinate flights for several puppies at one time so "I" will do the booking. (Please do not try to help me by searching flights online. This is a waste of time)
2) I will take your puppy to the vet, get its health certificate and get the shipping crate - Pet taxi. (This is yours to keep)
3) I will then take your puppy to the airport, check him in and pay for the flight. Puppies are shipped as cargo. This area is pressurized and is the same temp as the cabin. The temperature restrictions are because of the time it takes to put the puppies on the plane. During that time the puppy will be out and exposed to the elements on one of those luggage carts. The exception is with Alaska and Continental (United) that hand deliver puppies to the planes.
4) You go and pick up your puppy (typically at the cargo area but CALL the number I provide for specific directions) at the airport.
OR I will sometimes send the puppy to the airport with a local shipper if I do not have the time to ship myself.
If you understand and agree to ALL of the above, Shipping will be $600 (includes premium for non local pick up which includes pay pal fees, fuel charges , air fare, shipper, crate, health certificate, trip to meet the vet)You can click the link below for payment.
