Flying your new pet home is a safe and simple way of transport.  If it were not safe, we would choose a different way to transport them.   We fly our pets on Tuesdays or Fridays.  We will fly pets on additional days for major holidays, such as Christmas.  When your pet arrives at the airport, you will pick him/her up at the airport baggage services department or ticket counter, depending upon the airline.  Upon showing a valid ID, the airline will release your new pet to you.

We ship nationwide, to include Alaska and Canada.  Shipping costs can vary, depending on some airport destinations.  Some airlines within Canada and Alaska may also charge a "transfer fee" of $40 depending upon the airline.

In addition to airfare, shipping includes a microchip, health certificate, receipt, vaccination record, one-year health guarantee, a travel crate, registration papers, if applicable, and puppy starter food.
