I ship using United Airlines, which provides a service that escorts the puppies to and from the airplane in a climate controlled van. United Airlines also offers real time flight status information through United Cargo, which allows the departure, transit, and arrival of a flight to be monitored online at United Cargo. To use this service simply enter your puppy’s airway bill number into the tracking box. An airway bill number will be provided to you shortly after your puppy has been accepted by the airline.

-Shipping kennel or cage must meet standards for size, ventilation, strength, and design. Animals must have enough room to stand up and turn around. Kennels must be equipped with one water and food dish. Newspaper or absorbent material must be placed on the bottom of the kennel. Kennels must be marked with shipper's name, address, and phone number and the pick-up person's name, address, and phone number. Live animal stickers should be applied to the kennel and the last time the puppy was offered food and water should also be indicated.
