Getting your puppy

Getting your puppy.

Below are options, but they are in random order.

Option 1.  Delivery via car.
(Cost varies based on distance) Not all the time this is available.
We are the ones that get to choose if this option will work for us.
The place, location and time is our choice
We will deliver a puppy/dog up to 2 hours from ours which has to be agreeable at time of deposit.
We will deliver a puppy/dog up to 2 hours from us which has to be agreeable.
This service is available at the cost of $35.00 per hour and is figured on a round trip basis, for example, if we live 2 hours away and it takes us 2 hours to get back home, the charge will be $140.00 and is due and payable in cash when you receive your puppy.
We try to meet in public places and near a highway.
This fee is to cover travel expenses.
You will provide your own crate to transport your puppy back home.

Option 2.  Meet at the local airport- Due to Covid we are unable to ship puppies.
If you would like to fly in to either Sioux City, Iowa or Sioux Falls, SD I can meet you at the airport however the cost is $100.00 If I agree to meet you in Omaha, Ne airport the fee is $150.00
This covers travel expenses including parking garage fees.
We must agree to the date, time and location prior to deposit.
This means that the buyer flies into the above airports at their own expense, and will fly home with your new puppy in cabin with you.
Many people use their sky miles if they travel a lot and think this part is great.
I would meet you at one of the chosen airports and then you would fly back with your puppy.
You would be responsible for any and all travel fees including but not limited to airfare and lodging if need be.

The airline may charge you a fee to bring your puppy on board which you will be responsible for.

You will be responsible for booking the fights and puppy transportation, with an agreeable time and date for delivery.
As of this post, American Airlines allows puppies as young as 8 weeks of age to travel in cabin.
United Airlines, Delta Airlines and Southwest Airlines the puppies have to be at least 10 weeks to travel.
Please make sure to contact the airline which you plan on using prior to booking the flight to make sure age restrictions have not changed without notice as we will not be responsible for age restrictions.

Option 3.  Ground Transportation-
There are many companies throughout the United States that offer Ground Transportation.
Due to Covid, this is an option that I once didn’t agree with.  You would be responsible to find a company to pick up your puppy and bring it to your home, including all communication with that company.
You would be responsible for all charges associated with this transaction.
If ground transportation is used at your choice we have the right to turn away the Third Party shipper for any reason with no recourse.

Option 4.  Flight Nanny’s-
I have heard there is also flight nanny’s that will meet breeders at airports and transport puppies.
You would be responsible to find such person/company that does this.  You would be responsible for all charges.
In addition, a delivery fee of $100 for transportation for us to deliver the puppy to the airport to cover travel expenses.

***The closest airport is Sioux City, Iowa or Sioux Falls, SD***
To meet the flight Nanny we charge $100.00 for delivery to Sioux City, Iowa and Sioux Falls, SD
To deliver to Omaha, Ne we charge $150.00
We must agree prior to the deposit and noted on which airport you will be flying into.

 Information
All puppies and dogs over the age of 10 weeks will be required to be vaccinated for rabies.
This is not an option. This required by the State and Vet.
The cost is $45.00 the buyer will be responsible for this cost plus the price of shipping.
It is the cost of the exam plus rabies vaccination.
Take the rabies certificate to your local lic. authorities where you live and they should give you a new rabies tag for your pet.
