Pet Carriers

Please check the size requirements for soft pet carriers for your specific airline. Puppies are usually less than 8 lbs so here is a link to order a small one that should fit under all airplane seats.  This one is extra small for South West Airlines (smaller under seat space) Has to be 10.5 inches or smaller.  The bigger pups wont even fit in this one.  But please double check! You can order here——–> PET CARRIER

HEALTH PROTOCOL 

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 or if they get diarrhea. 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.

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. Praise puppy 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.

We like the Crates that have a divider. As puppy grows you can remove the middle section.  Usually these two door styles come with the divider.
