Puppy Temperament, Choice & VIP Shipping Information
This combination is the BEST for temperament, my #1 focus in breeding.
My pups are devoted First to their owners.
They are very loving and calm with endless desire.
My Vet and the Vet who does the CERF (U Of M) always comment:
"Are you sure these are Labs? :) Usually they are bouncing off the
walls. Yours have such a great wonderful dispositions!"
I only have one or two litters a year, so they are very well socialized!
They are around people, kids, and my other dogs & cats.
We take them for outings/adventures on our 3 acers of land (I am like
the Pied Piper). We have a very large fenced and 1/2 wooded dog yard with
I feed them only 2 pups per dish so they don't have to compete for their
food. Their confidence is high and they feel secure in themselves.
Until they are about 6+ weeks old, it is too soon to know who will go
to whom. They are growing, learning and changing daily, like children.
Like children, they can have their off days. I know the whole picture.
I am with these pups for hours each day - I know their personalities very
well. I place the right pup with the right families according to the needs
of both. If there are more than one pup that I feel will be appropriate
I will send pictures and have you help in the choice.
I send weekly updates and many pictures to those with deposits.
I have shipped many pups.
I only ship VIP through Northwest Airlines.
The pups are The Last on the plane & The First off he plane.
You usually pick them up at a separate place - they don't go to luggage
or cargo pick up.
I have people order a crate, pad, travel kit, toy and small adjustable
collar and have it sent to me ahead of time. I have the crates available
for the pups to sleep in (I take the doors off). Your pup ships to you
in that crate with all those things you sent. This way all the good smells
of Mom and siblings makes the transition easy. (PETsMART is very good
for on line ordering and often free shipping) The pups are awake all the
way to the airport (an hour) and played with by staff before and after
flying. I do believe they sleep most of the trip, with the hum of the
plane. Remember pups sleep a lot of the day at 8 weeks old, they play
hard and sleep hard. They have always done Very Well.
You would order the crate, travel kit & collar and have
them shipped to me:
9725 283rd Lane NE
North Branch, MN
The pup would then be shipped to you in that crate, with the collar on
& with the travel kit. Pup $800
(I suggest the intermediate from PetsMart)
Approximate costs for shipping are:
Shipping fees average $220 -260 + tax, depending on destination and size
Northwest needs 24 hour notice of travel.
Vet Exam & Health Certificate (required) $50 (this has to be done
within 10 days of travel).
Transport Fee $ 40
I have to put the shipping charge on my credit card. I require the lower
estimate of costs at least a week before shipping. I send all copies of
costs to owners for final adjustments.
We have occasionally delivered pups 1/2 way or door to door. We charge
current government mileage allotment, gas & lodging (if necessary)
Let me know if you are interested in either of these options at the time
