Transport Your Puppy With My Nanny
Flying your puppy? Or do you need help with ground transport? No worries! I have flown puppies all over the U.S.A. without incident for many years. I prepare them well. I only fly them with my personal friends & family Puppy Nanny’s. They are WONDERFUL! They are puppy loving and VERY skilled nannies because I trained them! Your puppy is carried on board in their lap, loved on & cuddled at all times, and cared for every step of the way! They have food, treats, cheweys, and water during their trip. (and of course toys to play with!)
During airport layovers, my nanny will take your puppy to a safe location so they may relieve themselves. This will usually be a family/companion restroom on a pee pad. They remain low key to avoid people gathering and wanting to pet and/or handle your puppy. Your puppy may already be a little shaken due to traveling, excessive handling can be stressful.
We will start planning right away, then set up a few possible flight dates when your puppy is 6 weeks old. I will need you to the name of 2 airports near to you in the order of your preference & your cell number my nanny can keep in contact with you.
If you are wondering what is best for your puppy – ALWAYS it is for you to come here, meet me and all my little doggies, your puppy’s parents, and see for yourself how your new puppy was raised!!! My doggies and I LOVE meeting you!!! I will help you prepare for your drive and/or flight with your new little buddy.
You can fly here and drive to our home, or we can meet you at an Airport for a fee of around $300 to $400 (depending on which airport). If you meet us at the airport, please coordinate date and time before purchasing your ticket.
Our closest airports are: Huntington, WV (1 hr 15 min); Charleston, WV (1 hr 45 min); Columbus, OH (2 hrs 15 min)
The experience for your puppy is SO much different than the other option of flying them in a kennel in the cargo area of the jet that I only use my nanny. With this experience of flying in my nanny’s lap, it is actually a good experience for you puppy and advances their learning in a good, positive way. That is a HUGE difference from the quite scary experience your puppy would have all alone in a cage, in the cargo area of the jets.
In order for this not to cost my puppy buyers a ton of money, & for your puppy have a sibling travel buddy, we try to fly 2 puppies at a time. If you are flexible on delivery days & times we can save you money.
My Nannies do not work for the airlines so they need to buy tickets to deliver the puppies. It is so much nicer for everyone involved, including your puppy, to be able to fly without the more common “stand-by nanny” problems. We know my nanny & your puppy will get a seat on the plane this way! We generally fly the puppies around 8-9 weeks of age. The total nanny/flight cost is anywhere around $800-$1600 (Costs vary tremendously nowadays so it’s even possible that it may be more). This includes airfare. We have no control over the cost of plane tickets but my nannies work hard at shopping for them to keep your costs down as much as they can. They are GOOD!! It usually takes my nannies 2 days of their time as it would if you are coming here from a long distance so that adds to the travel costs that need to be included. If my nanny has to stay overnight in a hotel that will be additional cost.
My puppy nannies do not fly into Canada but they can fly your puppy to the border where you can meet them, pick up your puppy, and take your pup across yourself. Usually, all you will need at the border is a bill of sale from me which I will of course provide and a special health certificate which I can get for you from my vet shortly before your puppy flies. Extra cost for health certificate is $100.
(We do not fly puppies as a business or for other breeders/people – only my own puppies.
I have a very reputable, good friend who may be able to ground transport to folks in the eastern & mid-western states. I will not allow my puppies to be picked up by any other company. He charges around $1.50/ mile (plus the cost of the gas). He picks up your puppy here and brings him/her directly to your door!
