By Air:

Shipping a puppy by air can be a bit disorienting.  We will do the absolute best we can to make the trip as comfortable for your new American Alsatian puppy as possible. Your puppy will have good experiences in its kennel before the flight and we will feed and water your puppy no later than 60 minutes before it is left to board the plane. This will ensure that your pup has adequate time to use the restroom before the long adventure through the skies, which will also minimize the chance of your puppy vomiting or defecating in its crate during its travels. A small water bottle, a bag of food, and a comfortable thin bed will help your puppy feel right at home. Remember to be on time to the airport to pick up your new one and immediately take it out to a grassy area to relieve itself. You may also wish to give your new pup a chance to have fun, play, drink, and possibly eat if it wants.  This is your first encounter with your new one, so let it be happy and exciting now that the long trip is finally over. 


Our Air Shipping Service to you:

With airline travel, we work together with you to gather everything together for the trip, including the kennel (dimensions: 27-20-29 for an 8 week old puppy) and getting it ready as per flight standards and USDA regulations. Your puppy will be shipped when all payment has been received and cleared.  We will converse over email or phone (if you prefer) in order to make sure that everyone is aware of all the flight information and most importantly the time your puppy is due to arrive on your end.  


We can use Delta Cargo, Alaska Airlines Cargo, or PetSafe by United at the Spokane International Airport for pet air cargo needs. The staff are generally friendly, curteous, organized and you can place your credit/debit card on file with Delta Cargo beforehand. Otherwise, we can take your credit card information with us when we drop off. Your puppy will require a health certificate from a certified veterinarian before flight travel, so please allow time for this when you are thinking about dates. Also, if you choose United PetSafe, please allow us at least seven days ahead of the flight to acquire the health certificate as United PetSafe requires a bunch of paperwork to be sent via email to them at least five days prior to the flight, including a copy of the health certificate. That means we must acquire the health certificate earlier than normal for United flights. 


An example of the cost of all this would be:

Puppy:                                                       $2500.00

Medium Airline Approved Crate:                   $70.00

Crate pad:                                                       20.00

Airline Ticket:                                               $300.00

Total cost of your puppy plus flight:           $2890.00



By Pet Transport Service:

Pet transport services offer door-to-door convenience as well as one-on-one attention to your new puppy's needs. However, there are some concerns that you need to be aware of if you choose this option. We have written a more comprehensive article regarding pet transport so that you will be fully informed and prepared when booking your pet's travels through pet ground transport.

Visiting Us:

You are welcome to visit our home to view our American Alsatians dogs any time!  Here you can experience the regal parents of your new puppy and see the beautiful Lake Roosevelt where your puppy started life.  All of your training questions can be asked and answered personally.  


Please email us to make arrangements.




By Car: 
We may be able to drive your puppy to you if you live in the surrounding states.  Shipping your puppy by car can mean much less disorientation and stress for your puppy.  We can love and hug on your puppy throughout the trip as well as allow for periodic stops to rest from the traveling. If you would like us to bring your puppy to you by car, though, we will need to be paid for the gas and vehicle expense we incur. 


Here's an example:

Arriving to Seattle by car, with a total of 548 round-trip driving miles for us will cost a total of $191.80 at .35 cents a mile.

If two people are requiring a dog in the same locale, they may share the cost of transportation and this may be of some help to a lot of folks as fuel is so expensive nowadays.

When delivering your pup by car we will bring the mother and relatives of the pup for you to examine. You may wish to bring a camera. We like to meet at a rest area or familiar sites or a Burger King along the way.
