Hey, everyone.

I received a request for a pup to be shipped to California today. I was just wondering how many breeders have shipped their dogs and what are the precautions I should take and risks associated with shipping pups? These pups are about 9 weeks old and quite healthy and fat. So, I'm not sure that I should be concerned about their health. I have just never shipped a dog before, so I am hoping some of yall have some experience with this to share with me before I decide to ship a pup or not.

Please let me know,
-- Rachael C

Aha, I meant for this to be in the breeding section.

I refuse to ship dogs. I like to meet my buyers just me.

My family used to ship Siberian Husky's all over the world..I have the buyer set up the flight and make sure it is in the evening or early morning so the pup doesnt get hot, they pay for EVERYTHING! and get health papers on the pup, on most air lines they do not require the papers but I like to have them just in case.

Thanks for the info. Like I said, I'm not 100%, but the guy said he's shipped all his hog dogs this way.

Has anyone here got something to share about receiving a shipped dog?

The rough thing about shipping during the summer is that the temps cant be above certain degree. You can go to the airlines websites and find out the rules- and there are a bunch. I shipped a pup for Jimmy and it was a real pain, as it was going to Montana. The temp couldnt be too hot in Tex and not too cold in Montana. We lucked out and made it on the one day that the temps were ok.

On two occasions, I met people at the airport. One was my pup that went to Maryland and one of Jimmys pups that went to Utah. They had to do some checking, but both of them found ways to fly in and get the dog and it was as cheap as my just shipping the dog. And, I felt better about the whole situation. Made some really good friends by meeting both of them!!

good advice, its been years since I shipped animals....I use to use Delta Dash.....back then the hound had to go to the vet and be checked out and all paper work in order. If I shipped I had the buyer add monies for the cage, and yes all were non stop and usually evening filghts....hope this helped

That's actually exactly what the potential buyer told me. He said Delta still had all those requirements and that they would be non-stop with AC for the dog. Which sounds pretty good to me, if he's willing to fly a dog out there, lol. I just would like to meet the person face-to-face before I sell a pup.

I believe 85 degrees is the max temp to fly a dog...you might look into Gun Dog Express they are a dog hauler that travels out west and they run about the same price...they have a fancy cargo van that they haul dogs in...

I will never ever fly a pup again. After the last disaster I saw happen. When the dog got there the buyer claimed the dog was sick and caused a lot of trouble. If the dog had been a sick as they say it would of never been allowed to fly. They do have to have health certificates and they must look good when you take them to the airport and they must go early to stay cool. However after seeing how bad that puppy looked after flying, I say they need to drive and pick it up.
