Shipping by plane is safe. We ship 90% of our puppies and none of them have past away during transportation.
The puppy travels in a crate with plenty of space to stand, turn around, sleep and even play (Compared to the passengers area, pups have much more space than us).
We include a small towel or a small matt on the bottom so the puppy will travel comfortably.
The place where puppies travel is temperature and pressure controlled.
Your puppy usually sleeps most of the flight or plays when she/he is awake.
We include a little bit of food inside and the airlines staff will supply with water at the connecting station and at the time of arrival if needed.
We do not use sedatives.
- PICKING UP AT THE AIRPORT:
You can pick up the pup after 20-45 minutes of arrival time. Just Bring your ID & Confirmation or waybill Numbers (whichever has been provided to you, this varies depending on the airlines) to the airport and you keep the crate.
Depending on each airport, the pickup location could be either at the Cargo Office, Baggage Claims or Ticket Counter. Please call the airlines to find out where you should pick up your puppy.
Please inspect the documentations when receiving the puppy!. Make sure you get the puppy's health records (A white envelope that travels with the dog).
You must bring to the airport: Nutri-cal (High Calorie & Vitamins supplement) or an alternative supplement for puppies, just honey works great too. This will help to raise their glucose levels and avoid hypoglycemia, also consider to bring paper towel, some water, puppy food, baby wipes, newspaper to change the bedding, a blanket if temperatures are cold, and a towel.
Do not expect a 100% clean puppy. Puppies will do their business inside the crate if they have their needs. Once you get home, bathe the puppy (you may use a regular, non medicated shampoo), dry well with a towel and may use a hair dryer (warm, if it's set on hot, don't get it too close). If the puppy seems a too stressed, just use some wipes or damp towel and bathe the next day.
