Logistics – Getting the Puppy Home

The arrangements for getting your new puppy to make the trip from Upstate SC to your home are very important. These are the different options:

  1. Preferred: You come to my kennel in Seneca, SC and take the puppy home with you. We have time to sit and cover any questions or last minute details, sign the Adoption and Health Guarantee paperwork, pack up your Going Home package, play with your puppy and observe it with siblings before leaving.
  2. For a fee, I will meet you inside a nearby airport and provide the health certificate from my vet. We sign the adoption papers, give you the Going Home package then you check the puppy in for your return flight using your airline approved pet carrier. You fly home with the puppy under the seat in front of you. Fees for airport delivery are $50 for Greenville-Spartanburg (GSP), $200 for Charlotte (CLT) and $300 for Atlanta (ATL).
  3. You can find a puppy nanny, who will fly in cabin with your pup. The above rates apply for getting your pup to an airport near me to handoff to the nanny service. Contact me for assistance in locating a service; booking and all fees are your responsibility.
  4. As a last resort, I will transport the puppy a maximum of 4 hours in any direction from Seneca to meet up with you, my schedule permitting. Fees are $100 per hour of my travel time getting to the destination.

This can be a very stressful time for your puppy. I have links and reference documents to help you minimize the upset to your puppy (and you).
