Airline Approved Crat

An airline approved crate is required to fly your puppy in and is an additional cost of $70.  This crate is lined with a scented pad, their puppy blanket, soft toy and their favourite treats to make their journey comforting and smooth. We want the flights to be as stress free as possible so help the puppy to be familiar with their crate before their flights.

Calming Collars

These are purchased for $70 from us. We have been using calming collars for the last 2 years and have found them beneficial in helping a new puppy cope with the enormous stress and anxiety that results from moving to their new home. We believe if we can help reduce that level of anxiety in any way it is beneficial. The calming collars release a pheromone that is similar to what a mother dog produces while she is nursing her puppies. Studies have shown even 12 months later that puppies that have worn a collar are more settled, happy, confident dogs. If you puppy is flying it will be necessary to purchase a collar from me as I won’t fly a puppy without one. If  you are picking up a puppy from me and would like to purchase a collar please let me know, so i can have it ready for your puppy. The collar continues to release the calming and settling pheromones 30 days. After this time, they are no longer needed as your puppy will be secure and happy in his new home. We use the Adaptil calming collar. They can be purchased at Petbarn for $86.99 currently. Occasionally petbarn has them on special for $70 and that’s when we grab as many as we can.  Jetpets are also now recommeding them to all puppies flying and also sell them for $89.95.  Our vet also sells them for $90. They are a widely used and respected product.
