We ship 3 times per week. These days are typically Mondays, Wenesdays & Fridays. Sometimes (depending on the Cargo facility hours) we will make exceptions to ship another day. If you designate an airport Delta services with Live Animals, we will find the best flight for your puppy on one of the days we ship. We must stay within our contract with Delta Airlines & use the airports they service within the times they allow. Restrictions are as follows:
Snub Nose/ Bulldog Puppy restrictions. The airlines take very precautionary steps to making sure these puppies fly safe. We must follow their guidelines. This may cause a flight to be changed, delayed to a different day, or different airport. Please know, the puppy's health is #1 priority before anyone's schedule.
Dash Shipments. A small percentage of airports are Delta Dash during certain hours. Typically, these belong to the smaller airports. For Dash, if the ONLY flight option for your puppy falls within the Dash Shipment category, we may be required to charge an additional small fee to cover the shipping. Dash Shipping will not be below $50 nor exceed $100.
Canada/International Customers. Sometimes we must charge a bit more to ship a puppy to internationally (depending on the airport & time of year). Please understand if you're a potential customer located internationally & want your puppy shipped for the price you've paid in US Dollars.... it's a case by case basis.
Weather. (Usually only applicable in the heat of summer or coldest winter months). Airline regulations will restrict live animal shipments sometimes. The regulations change about as quickly as the weather does! We ship out of different airports accross the country & the Cargo department treats us very well. Please understand we want to get you your puppy as much as you do, however, sometimes we are denied shipment due to a national regulation made by the airline. Also, different receiving airports have different restrictions & hours. It's always going to be a case by case basis here as well. Shipping restrictions can even be made by the pilot, 5 mins before takeoff... if he or she feels the plane is too heavy due to baggage or weather and wants to remove the live animal cargo from the flight-- the call can be made to do this. If one of these types of issues happen, please do NOT blame us, because we the control is out of our hands.
Make an Offer. Sometimes we have puppies you can make an offer on. If the offer is accepted, shipping must on shippers' terms. Customer must be flexible & work with a schedule determined by the shipper. As always, you may call & speak to a representative before checking out if you have questions. Offers on puppies are held for a short time. We will choose the best flight for the puppy & advantageous for shipping costs. When doing this, oftentimes, there will be 2 separate puppies flying to the SAME airport on the SAME day for 2 separate customers. In best interest of lessening the stress of a flight, we will fly 2 puppies together--so they have a playmate during the flight. This is the best option for the pups. When receiving a puppy price or shipping price BELOW full price, please know these options are possible. A customer may only require their puppy to be sent alone if they've paid full shipping costs &/or have entered no coupon code.
PLEASE IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS, DON'T HESITATE TO CALL OR EMAIL US IMMIDIATELY.
