Puppy Shipping

A Few Tips About Shipping Your Puppy

Most sellers will welcome to pick up your puppy in person, but sometimes busy schedules or long distances make it tough. If this is the case, you may want to look into having your new puppy shipped or delivered to you.  Please note that Buckeye Puppies and Lancaster Puppies do not ship puppies. And due to USDA regulations, not all breeders can ship puppies either. Ask your breeder, and they may prefer making shipping arrangements themselves. 

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Shipping and delivery options available may include:

    • Ground transportation, either to your door or meet part way. 

    • Airline shipping through commercial airlines (pet cargo)

    • Pet Nanny service consists of a person that will accompany and care for                 your puppy in cabin on the flight.

  • You might be able to work out arrangements to meet the breeder or shipper halfway. (sometimes a lot cheaper than air shipping)
  • Shipping services may require a recent Health Certificate from a licensed veterinarian.

  • Buyer typically covers shipping fees

  • Not all breeders will ship - ask the breeder to make sure they do. (their contact information can be found in the puppy ad under “Interested In This Puppy”)

  • Keep in mind any shipping arrangements you make are with the breeder, or a third party shipping service, LancasterPuppies.com or BuckeyePuppies.com does not provide or arrange shipping.
