~ We are able to fly your puppy any location "Live Cargo" flies into ~
Our pups have been prepared for travelling
since they were 5 weeks of age, by travelling in a crate to my family
and friend's homes or to the Vet 2 hours away.
Our pups think that travelling means going somewhere to be played with and cuddled.
Our pups are very happy to reach their destination to play
and think the plane is just one large bumpy car ride.
Our puppies will be Vet checked and sent with a Health Certificate
stating that our Vet has seen the puppy the same day or week of of being shipped and found in excellent health,
good weight, patella and hips in good placement, no fever, ears and eyes clear and that puppy is free of parasites.
Puppies will be bathed and sent clean and happy.
SHOULD YOU NOT BE HAPPY with your puppy PLEASE RETURN THEM TO US !!
Buyer pays all costs involved in returning puppy to us, but it will be financially cheaper
and emotionally less stressful than keeping a puppy you are not happy with.
NO TREATS FOR THE FIRST 14 DAYS !!!!!
On occasion I have had people call me saying their puppy has diarrhea.
When I get the photo it is ALWAYS just "loose stool" telling me they have either changed
food, or given treats. So to avoid this, NO TREATS for 2 weeks and feed softened kibble for
the first 12 hours. DO NOT panic if puppy will not eat, they will not die, for not eating
Their stomach is adjusting to the flight and new surroundings and new water and or food.
People that are really worried about new puppy coming home could have gone to the vet's office
in advance or online in advance and purchased a couple tins of Science Diet A/D food
which is a tin (so puppy gets hydrated) and supposed to be easy on their tummy's.
You can also order this online so "let your fingers do the walking" and call around for the best deal.
On very rare occasions we have shown up at the airport and been told it is too cold or hot
and there is embargoes on shipping to a booked location.
We ask everyone to check their emails prior to leaving for the airport to ensure there are no problems.
IF we are unable to ship as planned, then we can fully refund the purchase, or book to a different location that day.
We ship out of Buffalo, NY airport (BUF) to most major airports within the USA
and from Toronto, Ontario (YYZ) to most major Canadian airports via Air Canada Cargo
DO NOT CALL AROUND to get information on shipping, because no matter what you hear
or information that you receive "I" can only go by what my booking agent tells me 14 days in advance
I also provide the date that I'm able to ship. I'm sorry but I can not accommodate 12 different people
who all would prefer different pick up dates, because I'm subject to either a 10 day or 24 hour health
certificate meaning I will have to make a special trip to the vet for Veterinary inspection
I have to have the day before and day of, off of work to make the flights in time, so my dates
I provide to you are carefully thought out and planned 6-8 weeks in advance.
Registration Papers, Owner's manual and other information in our package
will be in the bottom of the kennel in a plastic taped bag or on the roof of the cage.
Collar and leash will also be in the puppy package bag.
All shipping documentation and health certificate, will be held by Cargo People
in their documents usually taped to the top of the cage
2015… lately the registry has been VERY slow in sending paper work.
Rest assured you will receive your Registration papers either in the cage or a few weeks after by regular mail.
Our puppy arriving at the airport across USA and into Canada, fearless and happy to meet their new families
Just a bit about picking a puppy up. Sometimes this is very stressful for a puppy
because of the constant high energy of their new family in all the excitement of travelling and just stress of being
paraded around to relatives and many strangers all at once. So keep pick up day as low keyed as you can.
So something to consider is that rest areas, are coodie infested locations for puppy to get exposed to many diseases.
Puppy needs a routine, to eat and sleep and toilet training started or rather continued with, as soon as possible, so just be really vigilant
about where you stop for puppy to toilet, and how soon after you can stop again
At rest stops try to keep puppy on paved areas, where there is no risk of contamination from wildlife feces
or take a pee pad and go into the restrooms at any stops you make.
Also consider what bugs the puppy may pick up in the hotel and where is puppy going to eliminate in the hotel.
ie bringing puppy pads to lay in the washroom floor. Just stuff to think about in advance to plan for.

Sky Kennel #200 (or similar brand)
that is yours to keep, as you paid for this in your shipping cost.
I will try to include puppy package in the cage or taped to the top of the cage,
but on rare occasion they have not allowed this. I also 'usually' can't ship toys with puppy.
We will ship by air to any major airport in Canada, USA and the World that "Delta Cargo" or "Air Canada" flies into,
because we believe everyone deserves a beautiful loving Poodle no matter where they live.
We have shipped to Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Europe and all over the USA with only positive results.
Shipping Internationally is very time consuming process and could cost up to $1,500.00.
We have been shipping world wide since 1999
and have the experience to make your purchase as worry free as we can.
Cost of shipping is $450.00 (subject to change) within North America as of 2016 and will be added to the cost of your puppy.
Shipping price and includes airline approved crate, veterinarian medical examination, International Health Certificate, health record, air fare, any transportation charges
Any U.S. state and/or border taxes and custom duties will be the responsibility
of purchaser when they pick up their puppy at their destination.
Our puppies are cared for very well by the airlines "live animal" personnel
and arrive safely, in good health and ready for their new life.
Shipping in the winter months as well as the very hot months
is taken into consideration for the welfare of the puppy,
so some restrictions may apply depending on the month.
11. At 6 weeks of age "WE" will arrange ALL shipping and send you the booking information (waybill number) and a web page for tracking.
Shipping is $450.00 (in North America subject to change) and includes an International Health Certificate
Up to date Vaccination and deworming and a Cage that you keep
For more information about shipping please read our Shipping
After we book the shipping, we will send you the information to verify.
12. At 6-7 weeks of age puppy goes to see our Vet to receive an International Health Certificate (clean bill of health).
At time of shipping they receive a second Health Certificate.
If at that time anything wrong is discovered, we will let you know and you will get a full immediate refund.
IF the Vet discovers an umbilical hernia, dewclaw regrowth or anything that can be "corrected" then we will pay to have
the surgery to repair and also notify you of this. On ocassion there may be a tiny hernia that my Vet feels will correct itself
with maturity and in that case we will leave it and make you aware as well.
We will also be paying for and having our pups "Altered" prior to puppy going home.
Now would also be a GREAT time to review videos and information about raising a puppy located on our Obedience web page.
13. At 8 weeks of age puppy will also receive a full groom again and be Microchipped.
14. The day of shipping you will go to the airport with ID and waybill number and pick up your puppy.
Customs or Cargo may have a fee of $25.00 - $50.00 which they may prefer you to pay for with debit or visa or cash, be prepared.
The Cargo people will either hand you your puppy, or hand you paper work to clear with customs and then you return to pick up puppy.
Customs and Cargo may not be in the same location. They may be miles apart. You may also have to pay for parking and also
park a distance from where you will pick up your puppy. You would be wise to bring a "cart" with you to put the puppy's cage onto
to transport the puppy and the cage to your car and or to a safe area to let the puppy out to potty.
It takes 30-60 minutes for airlines to unload the puppy so do not worry about being exactly on time to pick puppy up.
Matter of fact I always show up 30 minutes after the puppy is supposed to arrive and I still may wait a few hours.
You should always sign up for flight notification or check the flight status before heading to the airport to pick up puppy.
When you go to the airport you may wish to bring garbage bag, clean newspapers or blanket, lysol or baby wipes, bottled water, dish.
This is in the event that puppy messed in the cage (rare, but depends how long of a flight) you can do a quick tidy and offer puppy some water.
Do not feed the puppy before you drive home as puppy may be sick in the cage. Instead offer them a Busy Bone
or Pedigree Denta Stix for them to knaw on, during their journey home.
If puppy is arriving after 11:00 and you have a long drive home.
then you may wish to offer a bit of tin food such as Prescription Diet i/d Canine Gastrointestinal Health
as will be easy for them to
digest without upsetting their stomach
15. You keep the cage Grreat Choice (size Medium: 26"L x 18"W x 18"H) is the cage size you need for Puppy's first day (or similar brand and sizing)
and the size that puppy will be shipped to you in and as was included in your shipping fee.
You will find a collar and leash, Puppy Package and Registration taped above the puppy to the roof of the cage.
Your puppy will be sent to you in "spotless" condition. However their cage can be next to other "critters" so
make sure to look them over and feel them for any ticks or fleas that may have hopped on board.
We do not have ticks or fleas so if you wish to treat your puppy we have put together this web page: Vaccines and Parisite Control.
16. If you are picking your puppy up at our home, you will need a cage Grreat Choice (size Medium: 26"L x 18"W x 18"H) or lap, to transport puppy home.
Puppy comes with every document and things you need to cross the border and to keep puppy comfortable.
*Click to see an example of our Puppy Package and also take a minute to read The Bijou Difference for more detailed information.
17. Puppy arrives with a starter package taped to the roof of the cage.
WE do not put collars on our pups to ship, as it is dangerous. We do leave the ribbons on them to identify them.
When puppy is first put outside, you may see puppy scratching at the collar (he does NOT have fleas) but is irritated by the new sensation around his neck.
If you wish to test if scratching is just due to the collar ...just take off the collar and you will see scratching stop.
Puppy is NOT leash trained so if you try to walk puppy on a leash, you will have a bucking bronco.
The leash and collar are JUST provided to give you some control over puppy while you allow them to pee on a grassy area
after picking them up from the airport....you would not believe how fast a puppy can run when you least expect it !!
Make sure to toilet puppy as soon as you can. Even if cage is dirty they will still have to go as they will hold it
as long as they possibly can. These are clean puppies and they will be very upset if they have messed in their cage.
18. Puppy can be hungry when you get home.
Or not wishing to eat at all.
TO avoid stomach upset you may wish to serve their Softened Kibble (video link)
add warm water to the kibble until it is soft and ~then~ offer it to puppy
or use tin food (mild) that will also help hydrate the puppy. This will also be like comfort food to a new puppy.
OR.... have RAW food waiting for them
RAW as is easy to digest and also what they are used to.
IF you remind us we can also provide you with a tin food that is easy on the GI system.
Either way, what ever you decide... DO NOT FEED puppy if your flight is under 4 hours.
They do need water and place to potty which should be in the cabin washroom
bring pee pads, or in the airport washroom... NOT in the public potty park for dogs
where goodness knows what coodies are around. You can use the grassy areas out front
of the airport, avoid any strange animal's "poops".
Denta sticks, or such will help with puppy hunger and keep them entertained during the flight
19. We have had MANY people choose to fly into our airport and pick up their puppy in person
returning home with puppy, in a soft sided carrier that meets the requirements of their chosen airline.
We have also had people hire students, or flight nanny's to meet me instead and fly home with puppy
When flying "with" puppy or "accompanied" the airlines are NOT strict in enforcing size of carrier
and do allow you to open the carrier during the flight, to play and cuddle with puppy.
When booking your flight, you will need to book for a 10 week old puppy
I also ask that you arrange for return flight in the early afternoon
2:00-4:00pm or so as this allows me enough time to drop off puppies flying Cargo, at another location
If you wish to fly in to pick up your puppy, I can meet you at an appointed day
at Buffalo Niagara International Airport (BUF)
I'm told Delta is the most expensive carry on for pets
and South Western is one of the less expensive, so shop around.
I will be at F12 LOWER LEVEL by the washrooms sitting with your puppy.
(far right as you are facing the front of the airport entrance)
Refer to above photo of the airport.
I will pick a day Monday - Friday for you to pick your puppy up
It will be up to you to get cancelation insurance, and we ask that people
wishing to fly in, to wait to book flights if at all possible,
until pups are 6 weeks of age, because we want to ensure the pups appear healthy.
All our pups come with a Vet Health Certificate attesting to the health of our pups.
Should you have any problems with your puppy and or you not be 100%
happy, PLEASE RETURN YOUR PUPPY TO ME. We do not cover any medical bills
and I would prefer to have my Vet investigate and or treat my puppy. Buyer pays
all expenses involved in returning the puppy to me, but it will certainly be cheaper
and less stressful in the long run. We want all our homes to be happy ones.
SHIPPING TO FOREIGN COUNTRIES
In order to ship to most countries pups will need to have a 30 day old Rabies Vaccine. This means:
4 months of age puppy getting a rabies shot
5 months of age a titre being done to make sure Rabies shot worked
5.5 months of age to 6 months of age puppy being shipped. IF Titre comes back that Rabies was not effective then the process starts again
NEW FOR SHIPPING TO THE UK
What you need to do if you are entering the UK from the EU and listed non-EU countries (Canada)
As of January 2012 there will be no quarantine on dogs arriving from Canada into the UK
providing the following conditions are met:
Preparing your dog, cat or ferret Step 1 - Have your pet microchipped - Before any of the other procedures for pet travel are carried out,
your pet must be fitted with a microchip so it can be properly identified.
Step 2 - Have your pet Rabies vaccinated - After the microchip has been fitted your pet must be vaccinated against rabies.
There is no exemption to this requirement, even if your pet has a current rabies vaccination.
Rabies boosters must be kept up to date. The length of the waiting period before entry to the UK is 21 days after the vaccination date.
If the vaccination is in two parts the 21 day wait will be from the date of the second vaccination.
Step 3 - Get pet travel documentation - For animals being prepared in an EU country, you should get an EU pet passport.
If you are preparing your animal in a non-EU listed country you will need to obtain an official third country veterinary certificate
although note that Croatia, Gibraltar, Norway, San Marino and Switzerland are also issuing passports.
Step 4 - Tapeworm treatment - We expect the European Commission to shortly come forward with proposals to allow UK
to still require pets to be treated against tapeworms. There will be no mandatory requirement for tick treatment.
February 21, 2012
In order to bring a 8 week old puppy from Canada to The Netherlands, the following rules apply:
