DUE TO COVID-19, SHIPPING OPTIONS ARE LIMITED TO FLIGHT PET NANNY SERVICE ONLY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Shipping in the US is available for an additional charge, but we prefer that you meet and invite them into your family in person. However, we are willing to ship as long as we feel like the puppy will handle it without too much stress.
Another option is to book a round trip and fly into our local airport (Tulsa, Oklahoma) and we are willing to meet you there. Then you can take your puppy as your carry-on for the return flight. Just check with the airline you decide to fly to make sure they allow it and if they have an extra charge for this. We have done this a few times so we can answer any questions you have as far as what kind of crate you should bring, etc.
There are two options for shipping.
*The first way is using airline cargo shipping. This is normally the most cost effective option. We have done this many times without any issues so we are comfortable using this method as long as the puppy isn't too small and hasn't had any issues with blood sugar when they were weaned. We attempt to find the most direct flights with the shortest layovers. The total costs for this option of shipping run between $350-$450, just depending on which airline we use. In the heat of the summer or the winter if we are shipping further north, we can only use United Pet Safe and they are the most expensive of the airlines so the costs will be at the higher end of that range. At other times of the year, if we can use American airlines, the cost will be closer to the lower end.
This total cost includes what the airline charges for the flight, and other things required by the airlines such as a health certificate from our vet, the crate, and crate accessories (such as food/water cups, metal screws/bolts, and various live animal stickers). We also charge a small amount for our gas money to the airport and back which is a hour trip one way.
*The second option for shipping is using a flight pet nanny service. This is a pet nanny who will pick up the puppy at our local airport (Tulsa, OK) and they will carry-on the puppy and fly them in cabin to your nearest airport. Then you will pick up the puppy from them. This is the least stressful option however, the costs are normally $600 on up just depending on whether the flights are standby or confirmed. Standby will be less but the need for flexibility will be higher. The puppy will still need a health certificate from the vet and a crate so those costs will be included with what the pet nanny charges.
All shipping charges and the balance of the purchase price of the dog will need to be paid in full at least 7 days before the mutually agreed on date of shipping. If you have any other questions about shipping, please let us know.
