What is involved in the shipping process of puppy
After all balance have been paid, I'll call the airlines and book the pup. I will need to know your nearest 2 airports, who will pick up the pup and your address and 2 contact numbers, The day and time will depend primarily on the flight, availability and temperature as well as when we both can travel to the airport usually, I can only book a flight 3 days in advance so they are aware of the temperatures for shipping. After I have booked the pup flight, I will email or call you with the flight times, airway bill and location where the puppy is to be picked up. Then all you need to do is pick the pup at your airport
We ship puppies by Delta Airlines and United Airlines and other Airlines after they are 8 weeks old. Airlines will restrict shipping until puppies are 8 weeks old by rule. The airline is very experienced in animal shipping. They take excellent care using pet care professional while they maintain strict guidelines assuring the safety of your pet. Normal shipping time length are between 4-8 hours total ( all in one day ) depending on flight and distance, Flights are booked in advance with arrival times and confirmation number Delta has climate control facilities where ever the puppies are. We ship Monday through Sunday. We do ship on Holidays, We want your shipping experience to be without difficulty and will do everything we can to assure you have a great experience when picking your puppy from the airport,
Due to extreme summer heat in Arizona cities only the flight times from Origin cities must be after 9:00 pm during summer heat, We also need two closet Airports so, I can arrange shipping with the Airlines.
Cost Of Shipping
Cost is the same in all US cities regardless of distance. The cost at present time is including Airline Approved carrier and health certificate. Cost is subject to change by airline price increases.
Shipping to Canada
We do ship to Canada at the same cost.
Forms of Identification
Once the puppy is dropped off at the airport. You will need 2 forms of identification ,When picking up the puppy. I will need 2 contact numbers .The name on the paper work is who they will only release the puppy to, If someone else is picking up the puppy, You will need to let me know the name so that, I can make a note on the paper work, If you do not then most likely the airline will not release the puppy. This is all for your protection, so that someone else cannot claim your puppy.
