FLYING YOUR PUPPY

The puppies travel in a pressurized, temperature controlled area, so they are very safe and comfortable during their flight.  Most puppies are lulled to sleep by the flight and awaken bright eyed and bushy tailed upon arrival!

We are asked often if we will ship, and if it is safe. The answer to both, is YES!  

We have successfully shipped puppies for many years, and have received puppies from all over the world.  We find this is an excellent opportunity to choose a puppy from a quality breeder without being limited to what is available locally.  When we ship your puppy, rest assure it will all be handled by us from booking to delivery. The airlines have very strict regulations when shipping live animals to ensure their safety. 

When we ship your puppy, the flight is booked the week of shipping, as most airlines do not allow bookings in advance due to the nature of dealing with live animals and weather.  This flight is booked by us, as we have a schedule and favorite carrier that we are confident with.  Many families try to help by checking flights, but to be frank, flight schedules for passengers are not always going to be available for live animals. There are many variables, so please let us book these flights.

 

Your Habibi Bear will be shipped in an airline approved plastic carrier,  lined with absorbent  shredded paper, scent cloth from our home, and food and water dishes.  We will attach the puppy pak to the top of the carrier, so be sure to unpack that top package when you get home!  All your baby's medical records and instructions are inside!  

 

When you pick up your Habibi Bear, you will need to bring along the following items

​I recommend arriving 30 minutes early or calling in advance to find out if the flight is early or on time.  Allow up to an hour for puppy to be transferred from the plane to the cargo station.  (occasionally baggage claim---we will send the address of where you go to pick up puppy for your city)  

  • Bring Identification to show the agent when you receive your puppy.  It must match the name of the receiver on the paperwork in order for the airline to release the puppy. 
     

  • Litter Box  Once you have received your puppy, go directly to your car and let puppy potty in the litterbox (NOT at the airport....think about all the other dogs that have gone there.  A huge breeding ground of possible disease----not a good idea!)  Give your puppy the opportunity to relieve himself, if he doesn't go its ok, he may be a little overwhelmed and not feel comfortable yet.  Puppy can go at home in their puppy pen!
     

  • Baby wipes, Paper Towels, Extra Towel, grocery bag for throwing away any messes (you never know!)  Use the baby wipes to clean off puppy's feet if he had an accident in his crate, paper towels to pick up any soiled mess in the crate, and tie up in your grocery bag!  Simple!  The towel is for your lap to let puppy ride home on!  (We break our cardinal rule of puppy riding in a carrier in the car for this ride home!  We have found that puppy will bond with whoever is holding him first, and that first ride home is a big  bonding moment for your little Habibi Bear.  If you are alone, go ahead and place your Habibi in the crate for safety, but if you do bring someone along, let them hold your puppy on the way home!
     

  • Bottled water Gerber Meat Sticks (baby isle) or Nutri-cal (high calorie supplement for dogs and cats).  Be sure to let puppy have a drink and a little snack as soon a possible.  This will aid in quick recovery from the flight, especially if the blood sugar has dropped.   We find the Gerber Meat Sticks to be irresistible to puppies, and they will gobble them up!  The Nutri-cal tastes good to the puppy, but sometimes they are hypoglycemic and don't want to eat, so you can put some on your finger and rub it on the puppy's gums or nose.  They will lick it up right away and help stabilize the puppy if is experiencing any stress.
     

  • Put puppy in your Puppy Area as soon as you get home.  This is important.  Hopefully you have simulated the puppy safe area we have in our home (complete with litter box, food dishes, and crate),  this will help your puppy settle in quickly.   Puppy needs to familiarize himself with your home, and his new area,  so start him out right away!   See if puppy will potty and eat, then you can hold him if he is not too tired. It's been a long day for your little one, so try not to overwhelm puppy with too much activity.  Many puppies are exhausted and want to sleep.  You have the rest of your lives together to play, so if your puppy seems sleepy, its ok to let him do so.
     

  • First Night. Most families report that their puppy does well the first night, a little crying but settles down.  Some will sleep in the puppy area right off the bat, where others take a little longer to settle in.  If your puppy seems to be a little scared or is crying when left alone in its puppy area that first night, we recommend keeping the crate next to your bed for the first week.  This helps the puppy feel safe and alleviate any separation anxiety.  If you think about it, dogs are a pack animal and just left their pack for the first time.  It is normal for them to cry out when they are alone, as that is how they would locate the other litter mates at home.  Using a heated water bottle, snuggle puppy or plug in DAP (found on Amazon or at pet stores) will also aid the transition for your baby.    ​{Quick note about crying} I never recommend responding quickly to puppy cries.  Try to ignore puppy and only respond once he has quieted down.  They are very smart and will learn quickly that crying gets attention---don't allow this negative behavior to start!  We will walk into the room and let the pup see we are there, and they are safe.  Remain calm and don't make eye contact.  This is how the pack leader in a dog pack interacts with it's pack when entering the den.  They never acknowledge the others and don't make eye contact.   This gesture will help the puppy see it is safe and you are there, being reassured by your calm presence.  Then walk away again.  Less verbal communication and more strong and silent body language will help your puppy.  Never react to their crying by acting concerned or scared for them, "ohhhh you poor baby.. don't cry" etc.  This will create a very insecure pup that will think it can cry and manipulate you.  Never pick up a puppy that is crying out.  Always wait for them to stop before picking them up.
