Any one know how to ship a dog from another state?

I am trying to get a puppy from El Paso TX to Pittsburgh PA. Does anyone know how to go about it or how much it costs? I have a friend who's son is in the service and cannot keep him. We really want him. He is a full breed lab. I don't know where to start.

If you have any rescue groups, apl, or humane societies around your area they might have some information for you. Rescue groups often ship dogs to new homes.

If you do it via airplane, you'll need an airline approved crate and some doggie downers to keep him calm during the trip. It'll probably cost around $100-$150 to ship the dog. My friend recently wanted to ship her cats to NYC and it was around $100/cat to ship in cargo.

Aren't there enough of us across the states to pass him along? Can you imagine? It would be our own underground railroad, kinda...

I have no other suggestions other than flying him. Are your friends going to see their son any time soon? Maybe they can bring the puppy back. He sure is lovable!

You can call the airlines and they can ship the puppy as cargo for a cheaper rate, you have to have certification from a vet detailing the pet is safe to fly and to what the coldest teperature the dog can fly at (becasue the cargo hold isn't heated) We flew our cat from Washington to Mass..although it was a few years ago, you'll just need someone to pick up the dog at the airport...and don't feed it, because odds are it will get sick...hope that helps! My cat happened to have a layover in Texas... i thought that was kinda funny!

Also the puppy has to leave with a clean bill of health from the vet, they are pretty strict with the health and crating too. The crate has to be a certain size and certain type, but if you really want him then its worth it!!

I know that a friend once had a goat shipped. I don't recall how much, it was a lot. And I thought "For a goat?" But she had to have a paper from vet. Good Luck getting puppy to his new home.

Be VERY careful about shipping your pup! I go to this puppy club every Saturday morning and last week a guy there was talking about how his sister works on an airlines (he didn't state which one), but he said that sometimes they forget to turn on the heat when there are pets down in the holding area and it can get to 15 degrees down there and they find the pets super sick and their water frozen!!!

If possible, fly with your pet in the main area, buy him a seat!

Ok, I know it has been a long time since this post was started....but here is how you ship a dog.

First: MAKE A RESERVATION. You will need to call an airline. Delta Pet's or Continental are both extremely good. I like using Delta in the fall, winter and spring. However, when it gets hot Delta puts an embargo on shipping pets...it is just too hot! In the summer I use Continental. They are a little more expensive and a little more difficult to deal with but they keep pets air conditioned in the summer and do a good job of it! Call them and know how much your pet weighs and what size the crate is....I ship a medium sized German Shepherd in a 400 size crate.

Second: BUY THE PROPER SIZED CRATE. It needs to be the proper size where the dog can stand up and turn around and lay down....don't get one too big or he will be bounced around in it like a marble or if it is really big then the airlines might not be able to get it on the plane!

Third: GET A HEALTH CERTIFICATE AND LETTER OF ACCLIMATION. Go to your vet 10 days or less of the pet flying and get the health certificate....the health certificate is ONLY good for 10 days! You will also need a letter of acclimation....this is fairly new so you will need to make sure you tell your vet to do this if he doesn't deal with people who ship dogs often. You will also need to make sure that the pet is current on their rabies vaccination at this time and get a rabies certificate to go with the health certificate.

Forth: TAKE DOG AND PAPERWORK TO AIRPORT. This is the part for me that is nerve racking! Take dog in the crate to the airport....you will need to make sure the following is in the crate: absorbent material (newspaper, towel, shreded paper....) water and food dish that attaches to the crate door, and stickers that say LIVE ANIMAL! YOU GOT TO HAVE THESE!! Don't forget your Health Certificate and the Rabies certificate and MONEY!

Fifth: CHECK DOG IN. When you book the flight the airline will tell you where to take the dog....to cargo or to the ticket counter....I prefer the ticketing counter and the people there know me well (I ship LOTS of dogs!). VERY IMPORTANT!!!! Make sure you potty the dog at the airport before you get to the ticket counter and only offer a little water 24 hours before you ship! If you let the dog tank up on water he will weigh more and you will pay extra and it is possible he will not make weight to make the flight(I have had this happen!)...I am not saying to let your dog get dehydrated...but he will be fine for a few hours on the plane without water. At check in you will be there for a while...you need to have your dog at the airport about 2 hours before his flight to do all the paper work and make sure he and his crate are acceptable!

Last: Give them a kiss on the nose and wish them a happy flight and secure the kennel!

WARNING: NEVER EVER EVER EVER GIVE A DOG ANY MEDICATION TO SEDATE THE DOG! THE AIRLINE WILL NOT SHIP A SEDATED OR TRANQED DOG!!!!!!! IT IS DANGEROUS FOR THE DOG BECAUSE IF HE IS SEDATED HE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CONTROL HIS BODY IN THE CRATE AND THIS CAN CAUSE SEVER INJURY! NEVER SEDATE A DOG FOR FLIGHT!

Good Luck,
