SHIPPING $ RETURN
I receive many inquiries on the process of shipping a puppy–individuals often wonder if it is safe and how it works. 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 I explain the shipping process to individuals to help them feel more at ease with the process of getting a puppy.
2: SHIPPING A PUPPY IS VERY SAFE? 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). 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..
3: HOW LONG IS SHIPPING? The average flight is approximately 4 to 6 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 puppy 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
4 : WHAT OUR PUPPIES ARE FED? Our puppies are raised on Nutri Source small/medium breed Chicken and Rice Puppy a quality 4 star kibble sold at many vet clinics and pet stores. We always suggest the use of a quality vitamin–2 of which we have had good results with are NuVet and Pfizer Pet Tabs Plus. Puppies are also fed on the dry puppy food. We suggest when getting your puppy to feed them of a morning and again of an evening in order to be able to monitor when they will need to go potty. You can start with 1- 2 cups of feed each time–if they clean up the food then add a bit more until you get to the correct amount of feed that your puppy will consume.Travel Info You Need To Know During the Corona virus Pandemic Since COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic, there has been an unprecedented number of flights cancelled around the globe. Many airlines have stopped carrying live animals completely and reduced operation to reflect less passenger traffic. More and more countries are closing their borders to foreign travelers. The situation is quickly evolving and travel options available one day may not be available the next.The International Pet and Animal Transportation Association (IPATA) strongly suggests all pet owners who are relocating or traveling with their pets wait, if that is an option. Once airlines start accepting pets again, it is expected that there will be increased screenings and additional quarantines depending upon the destination. IPATA also recommends that pet owners begin planning future travel even earlier than the previously recommended six months, as government offices may be closed and that may potentially affect the permit applications. For the latest, up-to-date information on options for traveling with your pet, contact an IPATA member as their global network of professional pet shippers is working with airlines around the world to monitor this fast-moving situation
