The puppy will be shipped to the closest airport near you or hand delivered to your home. Delivery prices are per county, region or country. In most cases the puppy will arrive within 7-9 hours within the US and 72 hours max international delivery from the departure time.

Safe and Comfortable Shipping process

Puppies aren’t vases or art supplies, so when you hear that he or she can be shipped to you, your first reaction is probably shock. Before you panic, get that picture of cardboard boxes and foam peanuts out of your mind! Shipping puppies is usually quite safe and any airlines or trucking companies that take live animals have procedures in place to be sure they arrive in good health.

Airlines will either ship puppies in the cargo compartment which sounds a bit callous and scary, but is actually fairly safe and comfortable for the puppy, especially if there is no need for a layover or cargo transfer or the puppy to be stowed under the passenger’s seat in lieu of carry on luggage. This is probably the safest mode of air travel.

We always give all our puppies a Bordetella vaccine prior to shipping to avoid the chances of other puppies or pets infecting them.
