As many of you already know we have kept our shipping policy strict with ‘no shipping’ for almost 10 years. We decided to change this recently when we discovered a good ground shipping company with excellent ratings. After having a puppy shipped with this method and researching this company we decided its a great match and provides excellent care for our pups as they go to their new homes. We have officially implemented this option to our customers. We answered the call to so many who emailed us and were not able to adopt a San Rocco Cane Corso puppy in the past because of their inability to travel to pick up at our home. Ultimately we recommend a carry on for your puppy if your able to fly to pickup, however we now offer the ground shipping for those who are not able to do so.
Most of our clients always fly in or drive to get their pup.The furthest someone has come to pick up their Puppy was England and Honduras. Many people tell us they can actually save money by picking their puppy up, rather than shipping. In most cases, you can get a discount airline ticket for less than it costs to ship a pup in the USA. If you reserve 15-30 days in advance you can save a significant amount of money, and its less stressful on the pup, and you. You can ride with the pup right under your seat in the cabin in a mesh dog carriers. But most of all, we feel it’s important (when making a long term commitment) that you meet your pup’s breeder, and parents.
Everyone typically flies into Dulles International Airport. In some cases we can meet you at the Airport if you are in a rush.
When making your reservation, tell the airline you will be flying with your pet, which will be under 20 lbs, and you can use the mesh carriers and put the pup right under your seat in the cabin. We will make sure you have all health information for your pup to fly on the plane.
Be sure to check with your airline as to their guidelines. Tell them you will be traveling with your pet when you place your reservation, and that it will be under 20 lbs and will fit under your seat as a carry-on. Some charge extra for this, some don’t.
Flying with puppy: When making reservation, mention you are flying with your pet, 8 week old pup, will have health certificate, and the weight is under 20 lbs. Order the airline approved mesh carrier for pets that fits under the airline seat. Or any Petco/Petsmart should carry this type of bag. Get one large enough to fit a 15-20 lb puppy, to be safe. They can assist you in choosing the correct bag!
Carry with you: towels, baby wipes, pet toys, bottled water.
It is important that until your puppy has all his or her vaccines to not expose them to other pets.
