Hannibal, MO, Moberly MO, Kearney MO, Des Moines IA, Mt Pleasant IA and Jacksonville, Ill (for Chicago area) or any town up to a few hours from Galt, MO. Every now and again we do get someone that lives within the same few hour distance just a different direction and we do accomdate those families as well. We basically try to stay within a few hour range of our home for these meet-ups.
Please understand something. The majority of breeders will not leave their homes at all. A few hours one way for us is 4-6 round trip. We have puppies and dogs at home that we do not mind doing this, however, if it is just too inconvenient for you to do the same to pick up a puppy that you will have for up to 15 years then, most likely we aren't a good fit for each other. Puppies aren't fast food deliveries and if it is too much trouble to spend a few hours or a day trip in a car to pick them up or to get to an airport then another breeder would be your best bet.
We group everyone for certain days, times and locations. No, you do not get to pick your own day and time unless it is closer to us and a weekday that we don't have vet visits, etc.
Please, remember you are expecting 1, or maybe 2 puppies.
We are coordinating this for several puppies and families and expect everyone to coordinate their own schedules to accomodate the meet up or shipping arrival days.
If you cannot make a scheduled Meet Up, you will need to make arrangements for someone to pick up for you or drive to us.
SHIPPING VIA AIR
We ship by air to any state with in the continental United States and Alaska. Flight days are on Tuesdays and Fridays ONLY, and within the go home week, typically. We do not control the airlines nor their scheduling, you cannot decide when this is done nor can we. We have only had a few changed flights, etc over the years and have shipped HUNDREDS of puppies .
Shipping by air is booked by us in advance, and itinerary is not available to us until appx7- 5 days prior to ship day. Last minute bookings may not occur until the following week. Again, we are not the rule makers when it comes to shipping, and have no control over this.
Puppy will be provided a travel crate, travel bowls, required documentation, health certificate and airfare. The cost is $500.
We do not charge anything extra for the fees, vet certs, etc. We, personally are not including any extras in this price.
This is a very quick, safe manner of transporting a puppy a long distance. We have flown hundredes of puppies and absolutely feel this is the safest, quickest manner in which to get them to you if a puppy must be shipped.
We may know of a nanny that can fly in cabin with your puppy, or you can book a nanny on Citizenshipper. The typical cost for this is their airfare + the puppy airline ticket $125-$150 + $200-$300 for the nanny's fee. Though we will meet you or a nanny if you would like to fly your own puppy home, this must be previously arranged so that the day works for both of us.
We will assist you in booking your ground transport. Shared ride transport with other puppies going to their homes is roughly $1 a mile and $1.90 for a VIP (your puppy riding alone) trip through Citizenshipper you can book your transport for ground there.
