I usually ship my puppies using ground shipping, but I will also ship via airlines if requested. Ground shipping is $450.00. Prices vary with airlines shipping. If the client requests his-her puppy be shipped by airlines I will contact the appropiate airlines for shipping price. Each puppy shipped airlines comes in a pet taxi for you to keep.

CONTINENTAL AIRLINES PETS FLYING AS CHECKED BAGGAGE OR CARGO (PETSAFE® PROGRAM)
FLY WITH A LARGER DOG OR CAT OR OTHER ANIMAL IN CARGO
If your pet is too large to fit under the seat in the cabin, it is an animal other than a small dog, cat, rabbit or bird such as a guinea pig, rabbit, or hamster or if it is a very long flight, Continental (United) Airlines may transport your pet under its PetSafe Program® in a section of the aircraft according to its regulations. This section of the cargo department has the same temperature and pressure as the passenger cabin. Depending on the time of year, breed of your dog and whether you are accompanying your pet, it can travel as checked baggage or manifest cargo.
AIRLINE FORMS REQUIRED
An Airline Health Certificate issued within 10 days of travel is required. Additionally, all required paperwork for the country of destination will need to accompany your pet.
If your pet is flying under Continental's PetSafe Program, you will need to know the drop off and pick up locations as they are not the reservations desk. You can find them here: Continental (United) Cargo Pick Up and Drop Off Locations in the continental States. For international destinations, it will depend on the airport and you should contact Continental for that information.

(You can attach food to the crate for long flights) and LIVE ANIMAL and THIS END UP stickers on the sides. Wheels should be removed or disabled.
