Be very careful. you do not want to ship in the warm weather, and you have to be careful about the airline. i think that continental has a specail animal shipping program, that provides climate controlled shuttles for the pets to and from the plane.

Also keep in mind that you are taking a huge leap of faith when you have a pup shipped to you. You never know what you will really get. Plus you are trusting that the person will really ship you a pup. Stay away from anywhere in eastern europe, as they are notorious for poorly bred puppy mill lines. The conditions the dogs live in is horrible, and they are riddled with genetic flaws.

I had a pup flown from a breeder I trusted in Missouri. I used Continental, and made sure there were no layovers. All went well, so it is possible, but I could fill 100 pages of horror stories I heard involving shipping.

I have heard many companies that ship air will not take APBT, you have to lie about the breed. I would suggest using a ground shipper as the dogs may take slightly longer to get to you they have been cared, I had one come from maine to missouri and no problems and it cost only $300 bucks.

If you don't have a personal reference you know about this breeder, go get your puppy and be for sure that it is alright. I would ship any dog until they have had all their shots and vacs to a T.

I ship dogs all the time. I use Delta, Alaska air, and American Air lines. they will ship APBT's but I have my vet ship them as different breeds to keep people from asking any questions. They dogs have to be at least 8 weeks and must have a health cert from a vet. I have clients ship dogs for me to train and then I ship them back. I also breed so i will ship dogs in and out all the time and have never had an issue. You do have to be careful in hot/cold weather but if the temp is dangerous they airline will tell you. they look at weather.com before the dog's flight is booked. I also give the dogs a dose of benadryl just to have a sleepy flight. I do not believe in tranqs at all! I make sure the dog does not eat dinner or breakfast or have water in the am before the flight. I use shredded news paper or a blanket for the bottom. You also have to have those plastic water bowls to clip on the side and a zip lock bag of food so they can tape it on top. They do that encase the dog's flight gets delayed like overnight. That way they can feed and water the dog but they will not take them out of the kennel.
Don't let any of that worry you the problems you can have are limited. I hope that helps you out.

As far as someone had posted earlier about a ground shipper, I personally would ship air over ground. I have shipped dogs as little as 150 with American airlines to 300 with delta, that is one way of course. oh and Continental will not ship APBT's but if your vet will fudge the health cert you can ship as another breed. I use lab, viszla, dogo, any of those types. Stay away from calling it a terrier mix because that means pitbull! I would only use continental in bad weather because they have climate controlled hubs (at the airport) and the area the dogs is kept is climate controlled too. They are more expensive so i use other airlines first.

There is an online website that is like an auction for shipping and you can pick who you want to ship the dog. You could pay a very reasonable price for a reliable shipper www.uship.com

My adoption puppy was flown from Idaho to WA on a personal private plane. I was lucky it only cost me $100. If I was to choose a cargo flight, it would have cost me $220 on one airline and $310 on another.

I am not to into it. You never know what they are going to do to your dog, when you are not there. I would be scared to trust people with my dogs. Though, that is just me
