300/400/500 and 700 SERIES, NEW Professional Heavy Duty Airline recommended travel crates:

We only use “NEW” travel kennels (crate) not used. This assures us that the puppy is in healthy, safe, new clean bacteria free travel environment without old unpleasant, unsafe and distracting odors from previous dogs in used crates.

 

300 or 400 SERIES “Professional Heavy Duty” (large) crate size for puppies is very comfortable for the puppy for a pleasant flight experience. NO exceptions, this is our policy.

 

Direct Flight: We need to limit the the TOTAL crate time 6 to 8 hours maximum allowance FOR DOMESTIC FLIGHTS. this is the reason why we only ship to most major airports in the US. A direct flight is crucial for the comfort of your puppy in minimizing flight time. Please remember that the puppy must be dropped off 2 hours early prior to shipping which extends the total flight/crate time.  A longer period of “flight time” can cause your new puppy stress and fatigue, not to mention boredom and stress

 

NOT all Airline CARGO providers are equal in service OF quality: From DALLAS, TEXAS we prefer to send with Continental, Frontier and United Airlines. These three airlines are excellent with LIVE animal transportation from DALLAS, clean professional cargo facilities, excellent in handling our “precious” cargo. An outstanding facilities with courteous and experience professional staff.

KENNEL SIZE (Crate size 300, 400 or 500 series)

 

All animal kennels must meet government regulations for acceptable kennel size and type. All kennels must be capable of loading upright in the aircraft bin as required by the Animal Welfare Act and the International Air Transport Association Live Animal Regulations.

 

  • Be constructed out of rigid plastic, wood, metal, or material of comparable strength with solid roofs. No cardboard kennels.

  • Have removable wheels, if kennel comes with wheels.

  • Have functional handles on the kennel’s exterior to prevent tilting and any direct contact with the animals.

  • Close securely, but not lock, allowing personnel to open it in case of emergency.

  • Have labels with the words “Live Animal” in letters at least 1-inch tall on the crate’s top and on at least one side.

  • Have upright arrow labels indicating kennel’s correct position—Delta Air Logistics can provide these labels.

  • Contain some type of bedding, either shredded paper or towels, to absorb any “accidents.”

  • Contain two dishes—one for food and one for water—attached to the inside of the kennel door. They must be easily accessible to agents without opening the kennel door.

  • Display feeding instructions and food, if applicable. These instructions should be affixed to the top of the kennel, along with shipper and consignee information.

LIFE ANIMAL CHECK LIST - CONFIRMATION OF FEEDING

When we check in your pet, we will complete a live animal checklist. We will be confirming that the pet has been offered food and water within four hours of check-in. On the checklist we must also give feeding and watering instructions for a 24-hour period. If in-transit feeding is necessary, we will provide food.

ACCLIMATION CERTIFICATE (FOR COLD AND HOT WEATHER)

If your pet is traveling during winter months and is accustomed to low temperatures, you may be able to facilitate the journey by obtaining two copies of an acclimation certificate from your veterinarian. USDA regulations require that this certificate be issued no more than ten days before departure.

 

The acclimation certificate must contain:

 

  • The shipper’s name and address.

  • Any tag numbers or tattoos assigned to the animal.

  • A statement that the animal is acclimated to temperatures lower than 45 degrees F.

  • The lowest temperature to which the animal may be exposed.

  • The length of time for which the animal may be exposed to low temperatures.

  • The signature of the veterinarian.

  • The date of the certificate

YEAR ROUND WEATHER RESTRICTION

We will not ship any animal during extreme weather, when the temperature is forecast to exceed 85 degrees F or if the temperature is below 20 degrees F at any point in the animal’s trip with the exception of Anchorage, Alaska.  Most Airlines will accept animals as checked baggage at temperatures below 45 degrees provided the passenger has a temperature acclimation statement signed by a veterinarian.

HEALTH CERTIFICATE (United States Department of Agriculture)

 

The certificate must be issued by a licensed veterinarian within 10 days of transport. The certificate must contain:

  • The shipper’s name and address.

  • Any tag numbers or tattoos assigned to the animal.
