How much is a puppy flight?
Flights have been costing between $250-$350, You can fly one or two puppies in a crate for that price.

Who books the puppy flight?
We book the flight and attach the Reference Number and Airwaybill number on the contract so you are able to pick up your puppy.

Is flying hard on the puppies?
Puppies can be stressed from flying. We fly all our dogs with shredded paper, water and food. It may take a day or two for the puppy to adjust to the changes of a new home and from the flying. We feed the puppies in the morning before they fly so they may not eat until the next day.

Are there restrictions when flying?
Flying puppies can be tough to plan depending on the weather.  

Puppies will not fly if;

  1. The temperature is below 10 degrees or hotter than 85 degrees in all locations or stops. 
  2. The flight is full
  3. Connecting flights to destinations must have cargo areas, so large airports are needed.

When do we receive the puppy book and AKC papers?
We are trying to send the puppy books with the puppies, however sometimes the AKC papers or Photos we have made for the books do not arrive in time to do this.  We then send it by mail (so you have to sign for the book) within a couple of weeks of receiving the puppy. We also like to make sure the buyer is happy with the purchase.

How do you accept Payment?
There is an area on the contract that allows for Credit card or paypal.  This is the quickest way to receive your puppy. We do accept cash when arrangement have been made to pick up a puppy or meet the person getting the puppy.

How do we Purchase one of your dogs?
We require a $200 deposit to hold a  certain puppy if it is not of age to leave or you are unable to take the puppy in a few days.  The deposit is nonrefundable. We cannot guarantee you will get the puppy without a deposit to hold the puppy.  It has happened in the past that we have had customers really interested but need to think about the purchase.  While they are thinking another family has  purchased the puppy they wanted.  If the puppy is of age to fly or go to a new homes we require the full amount of the puppy and the puppy flight/crate to be paid before it leaves. 

Does a deposit need to be paid to reserve a puppy in the future?
Unlike other breeders, we wait until the puppies are 6 weeks old or older before selling. We try to have litters in the fall and spring. We want to make sure you see a puppy that interests you.. we will not pick a puppy for you.  It is important to us that you bond with the one you pick. We also allow visits so you can pick one out after the puppies have had their first set of vaccinations.

"We show up clean!"
