Our first preference is always local pick up by the new owner. This is for a few reasons, for one we get to personally meet each other, two you as the buyer get to see how and where your puppy was raised and third you can be there for the puppy, to comfort them during the stress of the transportation. Please see "Picking up your new puppy page".
With that said, we do understand that sometimes finding the best personality fit, with the most loving and long term home sometimes means that the puppy will need to travel long distances, which is not practical for local pick up. Because of this, we will offer a two other alternative transportation services.
Need your puppy shipped or delivered?
We ship our Scottish Terrier puppies with or without a nanny by air ANYTIME of the year anywhere in the USA! (We do NOT ship outside the USA – Canada residents see below).
I can accommodate those that live in Canada if you are willing to drive across the boarder into the US to pick up puppy at a US airport.
Airline Stewardess (often retired) who will use up their frequent flyer miles and take a puppy as a carryon to the desired destination. They are puppy loving and VERY skilled nannies. The 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, the 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 is the last thing they need.
We will set up a few possible flight dates when your puppy is 8 weeks old. Please by advised that the nannies fly on a standby basis, therefore it’s difficult to determine the best flights/times for your delivery until usually within a week prior to your scheduled delivery date. The nanny will be contacting you approximately 5 days prior to the scheduled delivery with estimated delivery information. The actual time of arrival into your airport may change as to the available flights for her. She will keep in constant contact with you on your cell phone during your puppy’s trip.
During a possible layover, puppies are NOT transported from the cargo section of one plane to the cargo section of another plane. But instead, is being totally cared for by a personal nanny whom will feed ,water and take the puppy out to potty. I offer this service to you so you can rest assure your puppy won't ever be alone and will be totally content and happy during his/her flight with A nanny.
Please understand that it is not very “convenient” for either my puppy buyers or me to fly my puppies with A nanny. They fly on a “stand-by” basis that may cause a last minute change for your pick-up time, or possibly even miss a flight because it is already full. There is not much flexibility on dates & times flying the puppies this way.
The nanny will not be able to give us an expected delivery time until 2-3 days before the flight. She has to wait until closer to that day before she knows how full the flights will be.
With all of this said, if you have to fly your puppy this is the best service to use because it is the least stressful on the puppy. .
The nanny/flight cost is a quoted cost (based on distance and airport accessibility),
The final quoted “Additional” cost will include my travel cost to the airport, a brand new travel carrier, food/drink supplies, additional Vet certificate and additional vaccines/wormers paperwork needed to fly. The flying method takes a large amount of planning and supplies on my side, and I do my best to only charge what I actually incur.
We also offer Pet Safe Cargo Shipping for your convenience, this service does not require a prior notice. Price for cargo shipping is $475.00, includes shipping, health certificate, travel crate & transportation cost to airport.
Payment for delivery must be paid prior to puppy's delivery date.
