How does shipping a puppy work?
can be shipped anywhere in the U.S.
except Hawaii. The
shipping process is actually very simple as well as safe and cost
effective. The puppy must be 8 weeks old to be shipped and must also be
examined by and receive a health certificate from a veterinarian
within 10 days of the shipping date. (Additionally, some
states require a rabies vaccine certificate). We usually
ship our dogs via Delta Airlines, and reservations for the flight must
be made 24 hours in advance of the ship date. Upon arrival at the
pup is placed in a well-ventilated airline-approved transport crate
(with a water dish and absorbent bedding) and received by a special
division of the airline. He/she is then placed on board the airplane
just minutes prior to departure, and will travel in a temperature
controlled, pressurized area of the aircraft. The flight is actually
not traumatic for the pup at all because he/she will sleep for most of
the flight and doesn't realize their on an airplane.
your new puppy!
notify you ahead of time with the cargo
claim location for your puppy.You will need to show airport personnel
identification to have your puppy released to you. Be sure to bring
water (bottled works well) for your pup and allow him/her a potty break
when you reach a grassy area. Enjoy your new puppy! Bring your camera
and take pictures! He/she will most likely sleep in your
vehicle as you travel home, but as a precaution you may want to bring
some paper towels or wet wipes for accidents.
We ask that you please notify Lab Haven when you have picked your puppy
up so we know he/she arrived safely.
for Shipping your
restrictions for shipping dogs state
that the temperature must be between 10 and 85°F for the
puppy's destination as well as any layovers so you'll want to check the
temperature for your pup's destinations to see if they are within
shipping range. You may find this link helpful: weather
Some designated cargo locations have heated and
air-conditioned cargo units. When shipping to one of these locations,
the weather restrictions do not apply.
NOTE: Continental Airlines has a system for shipping pets allowing them
to ship them in extreme temperatures, so if your location's temp is
generally outside the shipping range, this may be your best option.
It's generally only $50 to $125 more depending on your destination.
