Bringing Puppy Home



If you are traveling by air to pick up your puppy in person or you decide to hire a puppy Nanny

We will meet you at your hotel or the Phoenix airport 2 to 3 hours before your flight home.

Please check with us before you book a flight. Every airline had a different pet policy and we need to make sure your puppy has everything it needs and is age appropriate.

Included When you pick up your Puppy from the airport-

  1.  Small zip lock of food
  2. A few puppy pads
  3. Collapsible water dish
  4. Packet with contract, health records, insurance offer and microchip ID info
  5. Collar and Leash
  6. We will give your puppy a high calorie vitamin gel and NO food before travel to lower the chance of car sickness.

Please only offer water to your puppy until you get home (unless your flight gets delayed)

Ask about our Puppy Nanny service. 

  Here are a few hotels close to the airport



Your puppy will have one DHPPv.  Please keep in mind that puppies are very prone to all kinds of parasites. We do our best to keep them under control. It sounds like a lot of de-worming but veterinarians recommend de-worming puppies every 2 weeks from 2 weeks old to 8 weeks old and then again at 12 and 14 weeks! Also, your adult dogs should be dewormed at least once a year but you can have your vet do a fecal sample once a year that way you are only treating exactly what is needed.  Please show your puppie’s health record to your veterinarian at your first appointment.  They can help you stay on schedule.  You will need to do follow up boosters in 3 to 4 week intervals. Most Vets have a puppy plan. Don’t forget Puppy Insurance. There will be a special offer that must be activated as soon as you pick up your puppy to bring it home.

Please remember that we don’t always have time to “crate train” your puppy before they leave. Your puppy will be sad and cry for the first few nights.. as most have not been separated from their litter mates before going home with you (at least not over night)  Please be patient and understand that there is an adjustment period.  We do recommend crate training.  By the time the puppies are 8 to 10 weeks old they should be able to “hold it” for a good 5 to 6 hours over night if they had an early dinner.   They are less likely to mess in their crate if it’s small.  If it’s too big they will just go to one side and go there. Take your puppy potty last thing before you go to bed. Let puppy whine.. and only take puppy out to potty again if it’s been awhile. You don’t want to teach your puppy that every time it whines you take it out. If you are consistent, it should only take a couple of nights.  Take your puppy to the same spot outside each time, preferably a grassy area.  Keep the crate close to a door so that you can get puppy outside quickly! Praise puppy, play with puppy awhile and return to crate. Just like children, do not feed puppy right before sleep, that is guaranteed accidents! Do not hesitate to call or email us for extra guidance. We are happy to help you along this journey.
