Is it really safe for the puppy?
I receive many inquiries on the process of shipping a puppy–individuals often wonder if it is safe and how it works. Won’t he/she be scared? How long does it take?
Won’t it be difficult for the puppy having to be all alone in a crate for so long?
This is how I explain the shipping process to individuals to help them feel more at ease with the process of getting a puppy:
Shipping a Puppy Is Very safe: See Below Details
Shipping a puppy by itself to a new location always sounds cruel and embarrassing, but actually I think it is harder for us than the puppy(s). With my many years of shipping experience as a bichon frise breeder, I know for a fact that all of the pups are well taken care of. So if you stop and think about it, the airlines are not going to mistreat the puppy(s) for fear of lawsuit and customer dissatisfaction. I tape puppy(s) food and feeding instructions to the top of the crate and put frozen water in the crate, so it will gradually thaw out for the puppy(s) and the puppies are offered food along the ride.
The average flight is approximately 2 to 5 hours. I always ask about any delays or layovers and know the exact times and departures of the flights, so I know where the pup is and am able to give you the information as well.
The pup will arrive the same day as it is sent–usually a few hours. I have a big fluffy bed of shredded newspapers in the crate for the puppy(s) to nestle in and usually a pig’s ear chew (they love them), and a toy or sock with my scent on it–to help the pup feel secure.
Bichon Frise Breeder
We are one of the best bichon breeders around because we adhere strictly to all the rules involved in breeding and shipping bichons. A lot of other breeders are quite laxed when it comes to shipping. We follow up the process till your bichon is at home with it’s new owner safe and secure.
What about shipping in the winter –is it not too cold?
If you decide on a puppy, I will guarantee -as I have many years of experience as a bichon frise breeder that he/she will arrive safe and sound. Puppies ship safely between 20 and 85 degrees. All pet are in the belly of the plane where the temperature is at a comfortable 70 degrees. This is same as for the passengers–and they are the last on and first off the plane. Shipping during this time of year is completely safe. There is no problem so we need not to be afraid about that. Just like a person getting on a flight to go meet their relatives for the holidays.
Shipping a puppy is very similar-and probably even a little easier. The only thing different about this time of year is that the airlines can be strict on the minimum temperature. Which is really good for the puppy(s) even though the plane is always at 70 degrees. I believe it is mainly for their liability and protection. Likewise, in the summertime–they will not ship if temperatures are too hot along the way. If this is the case, we will just wait for the next best day to ship. We could also ship earlier or later in the day to combat the hot/cold part of the day.
NOTE.. Most bichon frise breeder shippers specialized in shipping pets will use a temperature regulation crate called an electronic crate.
These type of crates are in use all the time. Since they can regulate the temperature to the one best for the puppy(s) travel
What is involved in the shipping process?
Since I am 30 minutes from my nearest airport and do not charge extra for delivery like most breeders. I try to make each trip count as much as possible. We achieve this by taking multiple puppies at a time while striving to accommodate to your specified times. Therefore it helps me greatly if you can specify multiple times/days you would be available to pick up the puppy. So if you are in need of one of our pups after all amounts have been received. I will need to know the day(s) and time(s) you are able to pick up the puppy(s). I also need your nearest airport, and your home address and phone number.
