- If your puppy is being shipped…
Call your airport on arrival day to ensure the flight is on schedule and also to request exact directions for where in the airport to pick him up. Arrive early –Puppy will want out of his kennel to give you kisses as soon as possible.
- Things to take to the airport with you:
- Leash and harness to fit puppy, ask me for puppy’s chest measurement so it will fit properly. He will need to be walked before you leave the airport to potty and also for the exercise.
- Food and water dishes, a bottle of your water—Puppy’s food will be attached to the top of crate. Offer the puppy food and water. He will be thirsty and hungry after the long trip.
- Give him about 1 inch of Nurtistat ( high energy vitamin attached in puppy pack on top of crate.)
- If puppy does not eat when you get home, mix about 2 tsp of honey to moistened Purina PuppyChow Healthy Morsels. Provide a quiet spot for the puppy to eat and drink.
- A clean towel or blanket for Puppy’s crate. It has been a long day for puppy and he may have had an accident in the crate, so the carpet may need removed and the blanket used in the crate on the way home.
- Be sure to take your photo ID and flight airbill number, as you will be required to show proof of identity to claim your puppy. Your ID must match the name shipped to.
- When your puppy arrives, the shot record will be in the airline’s envelope with the airbill or taped to the cage. Be sure that you do get these papers from the airline..I will mail registration paper if applicable through USPS.

- It is very important to gently introduce your baby to family members and her/his new environment. Provide some down time and allow your puppy to get acquainted with new faces and new places at his/her own speed.
- Limiting over handling, visitors, and outings the first few weeks after arrival is very important. Although your puppy has had his first shots, he is not fully protected from Parvo, Distemper, ect until he has had his 12 week and 16 week shot. Especially if there are children in the family, limit playtime so that puppy is resting or has quiet time at least half of the time. Puppies are like babies—they need time to rest and recharge and a lot of TLC.
- Providing access to food and water 24/7 is a must for your new puppy at first. Keep water and dry food out all the time in an area he can find it easily..
Energy is stored in the liver and tiny puppies have super tiny livers! Therefore, they need the opportunity to eat frequently in order to restore their energy and to prevent low blood sugar, (hypoglycemia). Give puppy about 1/2 teaspoon Nutrical morning and evening for the first week to keep sugar levels up. See web site for important information on preventing and recognizing symptoms of hypoglycemia. IF YOUR PUPPY DOES NOT EAT –CALL ME., CALL YOUR VET- PUPPY MUST EAT OR HYPOGLYCEMIA WILL OCCUR AND CAN RESULT IN DEATH.
- Consider arranging your schedule to allow for some extra free time for the first few days after the puppy arrives. This is a period of adjustment for the puppy and you will want to be with him to be sure he eats and to get a good start on house training.
- Remember, you can call me if you have any questions about your new puppy’s care.
Please send pictures and updates on how your puppy is doing. I love to keep in touch.
