Although I would prefer to meet my babies new families in person. I do understand that this is not always an option for those of you who live so far away, therefore I offer shipping at an added expense!
Our airport is not a very big airport so I am limited to just Delta or United Airlines, but they do pay extra special attention to my puppies, which makes me very happy. I would also like to add at this point, that shipping is only available if the weather cooperates. We live in South Dakota so sometimes it gets too cold to ship and in the summer it can get too hot to ship, but most times we can work it out. You may not get your puppy on the exact day you wanted if mother nature is not working out for us, but usually we will get a good day soon after.
Prices for shipping Great Dane puppies, starts at $400.00. Prices for shipping the smaller breeds starts at $300.00. Everything depends on the size and weight of the puppy. If you buy a puppy from us, and you want it shipped we will check on availability of shipping and I can quote you a price from SD to your area's largest airport. When I quote a price to you, be assured that all expenses are included; my travel to the airport round trip (4 hour drive), the puppies required health papers for the airline & the state, a pet porter that is large enough for a comfortable trip and all flight/airline fees.
With all this being said, it is better for you that the Great Dane puppies be shipped at 8 weeks old. They grow very fast and the bigger they are the more the cost of shipping. On the other hand, some of our Yorkie or Pom puppies are very tiny and we will NOT ship them until they are at the very least 2 pounds. This means you may have to wait until they are 10 or 12 weeks old. Safety and health of my babies comes first.
If you are not able to pick up your puppy that you have put a deposit on, when he/she is eight weeks old (give or take a couple days), you will be charged $10.00 a day for boarding fees. The boarding fees will need to be paid before you receive the puppy. Remember, if you are not able to pick up your puppy and pay the balance in full, you will loose your non refundable deposit and the puppy goes back up for sale.
