We’re happy you have chosen a Pinewood Puppy to add to your family!
We no longer ship our puppies via cargo because of new usda regulations. But that means we get to meet each one of you personally! 🙂
But we have some other great options for getting your puppy home:
- You are welcome to drive to our home to pick up your puppy.
- You can fly to our local airport (Spokane, WA-GEG) and I will personally meet you there to hand over your bundle of joy. *
- I can meet those within driving distance in Spokane on our delivery day. (This will cut off about 2 hours for those coming from the Seattle area versus coming all the way to our home). I drive to Spokane as a courtesy for my puppy adopters. Please try to adjust your schedule to meet mine. If I have to make another trip down just for your puppy, there will be charges for a special delivery day (including another trip to the vet if a *health certificate is needed). *Health certificates are needed if your puppy is crossing the Canadian border. Health certificates are only good for 10 days. I try to make the vet appointment within a 10 day period of my delivery day. But if I’m having to make an extra trip later (out of that 10 day range, then I will have to make a special trip back to the vet for a current certificate.) Thank you!
*If you are flying in; the puppy would then be able to fly back with you in a soft carrier under the seat. You would be in charge of scheduling you and your puppy’s flight/s, and purchasing/bringing an airline approved soft puppy carrier. But obviously would have to coordinate with me and my schedule also if you want me to meet you at the airport. The airlines normally do NOT require a health certificate if the puppy is flying in cabin with you. Please call the airlines to make sure that is their policy, and make sure they know puppy will be in cabin with you. (All dogs flying in cargo are required to have one) If the puppy needs a health certificate for flying, I will take care of it at the puppy’s vet exam time. ($60 charge). Also, since most of you have been on our waiting list for some time; you know the exact date your puppy was born. If you figure out about 9 1/2 weeks when puppy will be ready to go home, then you can start checking on flights for you and puppy. (Please contact me to coordinate day/time before scheduling your flight though).
