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. and Canada Cost for this service varies for distance and location. This is the most expensive of the two ways to get your puppy delivered.
Q: 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 off. 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 12 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 that is shipped out usually. 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 secured
Q: Can i travel to pick up my puppy?
A: 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.
Q: My dog was delivered. Does he/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 for a Vet check in not less than 48 hours after you received your puppy for general check-up and in case of any health problems, we will be responsible for either giving you a new puppy or refund your payment if no other puppy is available at the moment
Q: 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!
