During COVID-19, we have seen many changes and are adjusting to our “new normal” as many work from home.
Many families have decided that while “safer at home” is in effect, they will get a new dog or puppy. They have more time to spend with the new addition and complete house training and other basic training.
But with many travel restrictions in place, it might be difficult for your puppy buyers to get their puppies, especially those who live long distances away.
The major airlines in the United States stopped all un-escorted pet transportation on March 25. That means you cannot ship a dog or puppy by air cargo during COVID-19. Puppy buyers must be able and willing to travel to get their puppy and fly it home in the cabin with them.
Many breeders, especially those of rarer breeds, often sell puppies to owners who do not live near them. They might call on their network of dog fancier colleagues for help. Many professional dog show handlers are out of work with the cancellations of most shows in the country. Handlers are experienced with transporting dogs and own vehicles equipped for traveling with multiple canines, and you could reimburse them for their effort. You might also create a network of breeder friends who live across the country to make a “chain” of transportation to get puppies to their new homes.
In addition, there are professional canine transport services that puppy buyers can hire to get their puppies home.
The Good news, we have professional Canine Transport service partners that work with us to export and transport our puppies and kittens worldwide
