Drive to Our Home
Puppies are ready to go home at 8 weeks of age. You may come to our home and pick up your pup anytime in the seven days after the puppy turns 8 weeks old until the pup turns 9 weeks old. After that week, if you need additional time, we will charge $10.00 a day for extended care and vaccinations. Puppies will only be held past the age of 9 weeks of age by prior arrangement with us. Please email or call to be approved for extended boarding. The only time an exception will be made is when we or our veterinarian determine that puppy should go home at a later date. Cash or credit card payments only at puppy pick up.....NO CHECKS will be accepted.
Shipping Delta Cargo
We no longer ship puppies!!!!!
WE NO LONGER SHIP PUPPIES during the hot summer months becasue Delta Cargo has canceled their Pet First Summer Program.
Also, New USDA regulations on flying pups sight unseen now in effect have caused us to change our shipping policy.
UNLESS YOU MEET ONE OF THE FOLLOWING EXCEPTIONS............
THE FIRST EXCEPTION TAKEN FROM THE USDA WEBSITE:
The buyer must personally observe the puppy before shipping. The seller, buyer, and
the animal available for sale are all physically present, so that every buyer may personally observe the animal prior to purchasing. We can ship to someone if they have been to our home and actually met their pup in person prior to the flight. If you, the buyer, visits the pup at our home, we can ship the puppy to you when it reaches eight weeks of age.
THE SECOND EXCEPTION TAKEN FROM THE USDA WEBSITE:
The buyer must at some point see the dog in the flesh before it is sold or custody is transferred. The new owner may appoint a “proxy” or agent to visit and view the puppy for them if they are not able to visit the pup in person. (We are aware that due to location, health or other issues, it may be difficult for some people to physically be able to take custody of their animal, and we understand
the need for an intermediary buyer or agent to act in the stead of the final buyer. This may be a family member, friend, or anyone the buyer appoints as the agent.
This person may differ from the ultimate owner of the animal but cannot be a commercial carrier or intermediate handler.)
Basically; a friend, relative, or anyone that you the buyer appoint as long as they are not in the business of transporting animals, they can visit the pups before flight or pick up the dog on behalf of the ultimate owner. After the buyer or their agent has viewed the pup in person, we can ship the pup to the desired location.
THE THIRD EXCEPTION TAKEN FROM THE USDA WEBSITE:
If you, the buyer, meet us at any mutually agreeable location. The regulation allows for sales and transferring of pup to take place at any location agreed upon by the seller and the buyer. This could be a home, but it could also be any mutually agreeable location. We can meet you at one of the delivery options listed, check out our delivery options.
Fly to Our Airport
You can fly into the local airport. We can either meet you at the airport, or you can come to our home after your flight.
If you plan to fly in, we can bring your pup to the airport and meet you inside the airport. The fee to fly with your puppy is usually between $75-150. You will need a soft carrier that will fit under your seat. Your puppy will need to be at least 8 weeks old to fly. Please contact your airline for exact cost and regulations regarding flying with pets.
If you live some distance away and prefer not to ship your pup, we can meet you half way, all of the way, or some of the way to lessen your drive time. We charge a fee of $30.00 an hour(drive time) to cover the cost of driving. Meeting is a great way to reduce the amount of time spent driving and in most cases eliminates the need of an overnight stay. If you are interested in this option please call me to discuss the details.
