OPTION 1: We can meet you at our local airport(Sacramento International Airport-SMF), $50 delivery fee applies
OPTION 2: We can hire a flight nanny to fly in-cabin with your puppy to your local airport(within the United States). Puppies must be around 8 weeks old due to size restrictions. Travel fee applies and may depend on your location.
Flight Nannies: A flight nanny is a person or company that we hire to fly with the puppy to your location. Sometimes the flight nanny may actually be us or someone close to us personally delivering the puppy to you! The flight nanny watches & cares for the puppy during the flight, replenishes potty pads as needed and meets you at your local airport.For in-cabin flights, puppies must be 8 weeks old max due to height and weight restrictions. Puppies taller than 11 inches height or more than 20 lbs cannot fly in cabin.
Requirements: Some states may require a physical exam and health certificate completed by a USDA-accredited veterinarian for any dog being brought in however we will check beforehand. Most Airlines also charge a pet fee for each flight. *If you are flying in to pick up your puppy; Please be sure to check with your airline & local animal importation laws for specific requirements. Puppy will be around 10-15 lbs at 8 weeks old, for crate sizing reference.*
Recommendations when flying with your puppy:
A physical exam and domestic Health certificate by one of our trusted USDA-accredited veterinarians (if required must be within 10 days or less prior to flight)
Soft sided travel safe carrier. The travel carriers should have metal support and air ventilation, big enough for the puppy to turn around, lay down and sit but must be able to fit under an airline seat. A padded mat insert will help the puppy feel more comfortable during the flight.

Potty pads & wipes(*Reminder ~ your puppy shouldn’t use the dog relief stations due to not being fully vaccinated.)
No food during or at least 5 hours before flight to prevent accidents(Please be sure to feed your puppy when you get home)
