December 19, 2008, Newsletter Issue #26: Shipping Puppies Using a Pet Transportation Service

Tip of the Week

You were searching for a puppy through and you found the perfect match. However, the breeder is hesitant to ship, either because the kennel is not located near an airport or because the breeder just has never done this before and is unsure about all the procedures involved. You'll have to fly out to the breeder's location, pick up the puppy and take it home. The trip will be costly and you'll still have to figure out all the ins and outs of shipping. Should you just give up and buy a puppy that isn't quite right for you and your family? Before you get too discouraged, there is another option. You can look into shipping puppies using a pet transportation service.

A pet transportation service can be used to handle the entire shipping process, from pick up at the breeder's kennel to delivery to your front door. You can also just have the service help you with part of the trip. For example, the service could pick the puppy up and deliver it to the airline, where it is shipped to your airport. From there, you could claim your puppy and take it home yourself.

Some of these transporters also offer consulting services. They'll help you figure out how to ship your puppy and recommend the best airline and plane flight, while you and the breeder do the actual driving to and from airports on both ends.
