First of all, we do NOT allow shipping in cargo. We never truly had any issues with shipping in cargo, but the fear of not knowing who is handling our babies at all times has caused us to stop. We do allow shipping in cabin though.
We currently offer meeting you at our airport when you fly in, shipping in cabin with a flight nanny, using a ground transporter, or traveling to us, usually to a public meeting location.. Read below for a more detailed description of each.
1. Meeting you at our airport ...
I can meet you at our local airport in Nashville, Tennessee (BNA) free of charge. You can fly in, meet up with me usually at the drive up Departing Flights Southwest (at the far end), and then return home on a return flight. Please talk with me prior to booking the flight as some airlines do not allow pets in cabin as well as I need to verify I will be available to drive to Nashville, Tennessee that day. You will be responsible for your own tickets, puppy ticket, and airline approved pet carrier.
*With this option you can pay remainder at pick-up
2. Shipping in cabin with a Flight Nanny ...
We use a licensed flight nanny to fly with your puppy in cabin to your nearest airport. The cost of this option does vary.

The flight nanny’s fees are paid directly to him/her when you meet him/her for your new puppy. I can contact the flight nanny and verify he/she can take your puppy to you on your desired date. As well as finalize the arrangements for you. On the day of your puppy’s flight … Your new puppy and I will meet the flight nanny at the Nashville Airport free of charge for my travels.
