Flying with your pup
We do not ship. Our clients always fly in to get their pup. Most people find they actually SAVE money flying up here themselves, anyway. You can get a discount airline ticket for less than it costs to ship a pup anywhere in the US. If you reserve 14-21 days in advance you can save greatly…AND its less stressful on the pup, and you…AND you can ride with the pup right under your seat in the cabin in one of those mesh dog bags. But most importantly, we feel that it is important, when making a 10 to 15 year commitment like this, that you meet your dog’s breeder, parents, and know WHERE your pup was raised. Very good idea….
We have had several people do this. It goes smoothly, and we have been doing it for several years…give us a call for more info, and airport info.
Everyone flies into Elmira/Corning Regional Airport, and the shuttle (contact Bill's Taxi 607-731-8801) will bring you down, and wait for you while you pick your pup and do paperwork, then take you right back. Most people fly out the same day because it is so convenient!
The airport handles USAir and Northwest only. When making your reservation, tell them you will be flying with your pet, which will be around 15 lbs, and you can use the mesh carriers and put the pup right under your seat in the cabin. We will be sure you have all health information for your pup to fly on the plane.
