Puppy Picks Days are always done on Saturdays…. The families each have 60 minutes to play with the puppies available before the next family is scheduled to come to choose their puppy. The puppies that are being shipped will be shipped on the day they turn 8 weeks old. We fly all of the puppies from the same litter on the same date. It’s over a 3 hour trip for us to do an airport run, so there really isn’t much flexibility. You can of course ask and if we happen to be going down on a different day close to your ship date, we may be able to adjust your day 🙂
Be sure when reserving your puppy that the Puppy Pick Day will work with your schedule . Families coming here to pick up their puppy on puppy pick day need to be able to come at their scheduled time. Each family will come in order and is given 60 minutes to play with the puppies and choose the one they want before the next family gets here to choose their puppy 🙂 For families that can’t be here on Puppy Pick Days, we can call and FaceTime with you to help you choose your puppy 🙂
If you’d like us to ship your puppy home, the fee is $600. This includes the flight, a crate, the health certificate from our vet that’s required by the airlines and the transportation to the airport. During Covid, airlines aren’t shipping puppies. We’re hoping that shipping will resume soon !
We have been flying some, with the puppies in cabin (since covid shut down the “shipping”) If we have available time to do that, it’s been fun to visit lots of different places. That price just depends on what the flights and a night’s lodging may be.
We also offer to deliver your puppy by car for a fee of $75/hour one way…We can meet you half way or deliver your puppy to your door ! For example….If you live on the north side of Chicago, that’s about a 3 hour drive one way ( we’ll go by google maps time )….So the fee would be $225. Or if you live in St Louis, that’s about a 5 hour drive so if we met you half way it would be $190 or to you door it would be around $375. This delivery service will be provided at our availability and discretion…i.e., a trip to CA by car may be too far ……but then again, you never know ! Who doesn’t love a good road trip ! Icy roads will often delay deliveries also….(Hate ice !!)
All payments are due by Puppy Pick Day. If Payment is not received by then your puppy can be offered to someone else on the waiting list 🙁 That would be horrible ! (It’s never happened !)
Final payments may be sent to us via mail and must clear bank before the puppy leaves our farm. You can use our Paypal link on the site…There is a $60 fee for balances paid on line…( to help cover some of the fees that Paypal/Credit card charges) ..If paying the day of pick up, you must bring cash…
