Shipping

Springer pup - 2011
We ship pups when necessary to major airports around the U.S. (lower 48) and Alaska. We cannot ship pups to Canada. We prefer that people come and pick their pup up whenever possible. That gives us a chance to meet each other and it gives people a chance to see our dogs, our facility, etc. Please note: Shipping to the southern states during the summer months can be difficult due to the usual high temperatures during that time of year. We can usually get around that by shipping on early morning flights, but not always. If you are from the southern U.S. please be aware that if you reserve a pup that requires being shipped during the summer months, we may not be able to get your pup to you. In that event, we will refund any money received.

The airlines do a wonderful job with the pups we ship. We’ve been shipping dogs for nearly 30 years now and have never had a problem. If you are having your pup shipped to you, rest assured that it will be well cared for.

We will quote you a price based on what airline we use, the method of shipping, etc. Rates vary from airline to airline and whether we have to use VIP shipping (such as Delta DASH) or if we can ship via regular air cargo. The rate quoted will cover the air freight charges, the cost of the health exam and health certificate, and the cost of the shipping crate. We do not charge for our travel to and from Great Falls. The costs are reimbursement for our out of pocket expenses only. The total will range between $300 and $500. If you have any questions on shipping, drop us an e-mail or give us a call. The price we quote for shipping just covers our expenses.

We make all shipping arrangements with the airlines. All we need from people receiving a pup is the name of the airport they would like their pup shipped to. We cannot ship if the temperature is below 10 degrees or above 85 degrees. We can usually get around the temperature restrictions by shipping early in the morning during warmer weather and later flights when it is colder, but we have to wait to get a pup out from time to time. The airlines only accept pups 8 weeks old or older.
