We require families to pick their puppy up in person at our home in Indianapolis, Indiana. You can book your flight as soon as your puppy is born to get the best rate on flights to Indianapolis International (IND). We set the pickup date at the time of birth. You should expect to be here on a Saturday at 1:00 pm EST. During pickup you will be attending a 90 minute Puppy Seminar to learn about your new puppy. Please plan accordingly. We are located about an hour north of the airport, you will need time to get here, be here for 90 minutes and travel back to the airport for your departing flight. Please consult with us prior to booking your flight.
On very rare occasions we are able to hand deliver puppies to you pending that you meet us at the nearest major airport. The fee for this service will include the cost of our flight, the puppy’s ticket (normally less than $150.0), the cost of parking and a convenience fee which we will use to pay someone to stay in our home, take care of puppies and walk our dogs; if the flight requires an overnight stay fees associated with the stay are added to trip fee. In order to make it feasible to hand deliver your puppy we require that two puppies be transported to the same destination. This is a great opportunity for you and a friend to get litter mates. This request must be made at the time of reservation. Fees for delivery during holidays and peek flying times are much greater and controlled by the airlines.
Puppies must be under 20 lbs at the time of flight to be approved as carry-on. Generally an eight week old puppy is 8-12 lbs. Puppies that stay for training must be picked up in person in order to meet at our home for a training session. Puppies vary in size from 10-20 lbs at four months of age.
When picking your puppy up you will need a soft sided duffel bag style pet carrier that will fit under an airplane seat.
When I hand deliver I bring my own carrier that I will keep.
