What are the travel options?
If you are from a distance we will make airline arrangements to your nearest airport. However, we do appreciate several airport options if there are several in your driving area. United flights are totally heat/cold protected, while Delta and American have temperature minimums/maximums. If your puppy is traveling on an ideal day we don’t have to worry about that, but often we are watching the temperatures in order to make a decision as to what airline/airport would be the best for your puppy.
Should the weather be chilly and you would like your puppy to travel wearing a hoodie fleece sweatshirt, simply ask. They are reasonably priced in our store.
Remember that making flight reservations is not as simple as checking out the flights online. Not all airlines accept pets, not all flights accept pets, not all airports accept pets. So if there is only one flight a day available on the airline we must use, to the airport we must use, we do ask you to be flexible in your schedule. Flights normally leave Omaha mid to late morning and arrive at their destination in the evening. We normally travel to the airport once a week, on Thursdays. If a particular Thursday is a holiday we will go earlier in the week.
Normally those flights can be booked about a week in advance. The airlines must also record the expected temperatures when making the booking and the forecast must be within a week to make that booking.
Check out the arrival section for more travel details.
We do welcome you to make a scenic drive to meet us and your new puppy. If you are making travel arrangements please do remember to check in with us to make sure the date and time will fit into our busy schedule as well. Folks have found our beautiful farm to be a real eye opener into country life. We are not available on Sundays or holidays.
We can also meet you at the airport if you would like to fly into Omaha Nebraska (OMA). Again just let us know the date and time that your flight will arrive and we will be there. You can most often make a turn around flight the same day. The Omaha airport is very small (you can see from one end of it to the other) so meeting is not a problem. We are not available on Sundays or holidays.
We are not available to make a drive to meet you. Again, I have chosen this as my full time career and in between care of the dogs/puppies, entertaining visitors and keeping up with doctors/therapy for my high needs family I am not able to leave.
If your pet is traveling in the cool spring, chilly fall or the cold blast of winter, he/she may appreciate a sweatshirt. Pick out a sweatshirt to have your puppy travel in and we will put it on your puppy at the time of departure! Visit our store to make this possible.
