Once you purchase your puppy, we want to make it a stress free process in getting your puppy to you! If you live close to us, pick-up at Steindoodles is ALWAYS welcome! If you live farther away than you are willing to travel, meeting part-way is also an option (pricing for this is below). If either of these first two options aren't possible, we allow you to fly in to one of our nearest airports (Cleveland, Akron-Canton, or Columbus) and we will deliver the puppy to you at the airport to fly back with you in the cabin. Along these same lines, if you are not able to fly to us, we will fly with the puppy in cabin to your nearest airport (details below). Last but not least, we offer ground transport by a USDA certified transportation service (see below). If transportation is needed, contact us by calling, texting, or emailing and we will be happy to work with you on this! Email: email@example.com Cell: 330-347-4651 (Riley)
Having us meet part-way
If you have a long drive to Steindoodles to pick up your puppy, we would be more than happy shorten your trip and meet you part-way. We will drive an hour for free (30 min. towards you, 30 min. back), any additional hours will be charged. Our prices for meeting part-way are below (the amount of hours listed is the time spent driving one way).
30 min. ONLY: FREE 1 hour towards you: $100 2 hours towards you: $190 3 hours towards you: $275 **Prices may vary, ask for an estimate before assuming! If additional hours are needed, contact us to arrange.** We do not charge extra for bad weather or traffic conditions, however, we do have the right to cancel the trip if the weather is very severe.
Flying in-cabin with your puppy:
We offer the option of having you fly into one of our closest airports, we will meet you at the airport with the puppy, and you will fly back with the puppy in the cabin. In this method, you will fly into one of our airports (Pricing for us meeting you there below), pick up the puppy, and fly back with the puppy at your feet in its crate the entire time (this option does depend on the size of the puppy, and if it is too big, we will have to go another route). Because of the distance to the airports, we charge a fee to some airports to compensate us for our time and travel (pricing is below). Akron-Canton Airport: Free Cleveland Airport: $50 Columbus Airport: $100 **If you are booking a flight to fly here and then home with your puppy, make sure you check your airline requirements and call and add a carry on pet for the returning flight. Most airlines limit the amount of carry on pets allowed on each flight. Contact us if you have any questions. ***We do not regularly offer shipping in the belly of the plane, but if all other options are unavailable we will consider.
We fly the puppy in-cabin with us to you:
Another option we offer is to have us fly your puppy to you in the cabin with us and meet you at your nearest airport. We will do this option as our schedule allows. The cost of the flight, the carry-on pet fee (around $100), as well as an additional fee for us to fly it to you will be the responsibility of the buyer. Prices will vary by location and time involved. Contact us for more information on this.
Last, but certainly not least, we offer ground shipping with a USDA certified transportation service. We have seen great results with this way of transportation and is our highest suggested route of transportation to get your future family member to you. Ground transportation is offered to anywhere in the United States (check with us if you are out of the U.S.). We have a ground transportation service that we work with that we feel has the best prices and high quality care (estimate prices below). Prices (these are average and change depending on number of dogs on the route and distance, gas prices, etc.- contact us to get an exact quote): <650 miles: $250 650+ miles: $500-$550 Contact us with any questions about this option, I would be happy to explain the process. **This option has limited space at times, contact us early on to get an estimate and to reserve a spot.**
