with Frenchie Puppies***
We know some people
wonder how to go about it... So.... we made this page to answer those questions
for those who don't know.
DO NOT Ship Puppies as Cargo!!! We DO NOT use any kind of Pet Shippers
or Pet Airlines!!!!
International flying sorry. This is due to quarantines and different laws
pertaining to entering other Countries with pets (including Hawaii so not
just other countries). We also do not feel comfortable having our
dogs on those long International flights. This is not personal or
against any person or Country, it's simply for the safety of the dogs.
You must live in the lower 48 States and you must fly to pick your puppy
up personally and meet with us. Sorry, we will not make exceptions to ship
a puppy alone as cargo. Research and find out why this can be dangerous,
even though the few times we did it many years ago we never had an issue,
we have not shipped in years. Dogs can die or get lost or stolen being
shipped alone and it's a risk we are not willing to take. In all the years
of owning Frenchies we have only shipped 3 puppies alone as Cargo and the
last one was back in 2008, which means we have not done this in a very
long time and things have changed. Policies have changed regarding weather
and most have banned shipping any kind of Bulldog alone anyway. So with
that said.... Read the methods to get the puppy to you that I explain below
and you will see how simple and safe it is.
are 2 ways to Fly with a Puppy
MANY PHOTOS AND MORE DETAILS ON THIS PAGE BELOW .... SCROLL DOWN
|1- USA Flights ONLY- Flying Puppy
in the Cabin with you with the number one choice of course.
How it's done is you take a round-trip
flight to pick puppy up, then return home the same day. If reserved in
advance you can usually fly for $200-$300 round trip. Pups flight is additional
|2- Bring your plane or Charter a Plane
and fly in style... Ok I know this is not common, but it's happened and
why we share this here:
Here is a little video of one of our puppies
"Binah" flying home in the plane her new family chartered
Here is Binah again with her new daddy
and new human brother before they boarded:
Here is one of our other babies "Gigi"
came back for another baby ...
This day they came to pick her up in their
own Private Jet
Gigi's ride as they were leaving and next
inside the jet flying home with her new human brother :)

Flying with your puppy on a plane is simple.
Here are 3 photos of our little cream boy Toto flying to his new home all
the way across the Country to San Francisco, California. It's a long day
when traveling across the Country, but you are home the same day. She was
lucky they let her take Toto out of his travel bag. Not all airlines will
let you do this, but they do fine in their bags... see some samples of
is needed to Fly the puppy in the Cabin:
provide the goodies for travel. We provide a puppy "gift bag" filled with
toys. No need to bring treats, as I will have treats, a chew bone, toys
and a ziplock with the kibble they are currently eating just in case a
flight is canceled and someone is stuck with a baby at the Airport.
must bring the items below with you:
Airline Approved Soft Sided Crate/Bag.
2 thin Towels for inside the bag. Towels are absorbent, where blankets
are not. Most puppies do not soil the bag, but you can have one that might
have a pee accident and it's best to use a towel inside the bag, trust
me. The extra one is a "just in case" one.
We suggest you bring a small or collapsible travel bowl to offer water
at the Airport while waiting for the flight.
Bring some baby wipes/paper towels for accidents & of course a grocery
bag or two for trash "just in case".
Although the puppy will more than likely not use it, bring a small harness

Collapsible water bowls:
Popware for Pets Expandable/Collapsible Travel Cup, Small in Pink or Turquoise.

The large one is for pups or adults that weigh up
to 22lbs at time of shipping.
You can buy your
bag wherever. Just providing helpful links. The bags must be zippered to
completely close the dog in and have mesh on sides for ventilation. Look
below for photos of what they look like.
This is a "Olive"
in her travel bag...
These are the bags used to travel with
the puppy in the plane with you. Must be airline
approved and be able to fit under the seat of the Airplane. CALL
THE AIRLINE that you are using and ask them if they have specific dimensions...
Here is a bag we have to take the babies
to the Vet, but it is Airline Approved. You can get an idea of the size,
these are two 5 pound puppies in one bag. Which by the way you can ship
2 puppies together in one bag for the same price.
The bag is actually supposed to go under
the seat in front of you as shown below...
Our Babies flying home
in the plane.... or about to board their flights with their new parents....
This is Betty flying in first class. Most flight attendants will
let the you get away with letting the puppy stick it's head out. Usually
they are very quiet in the bags... it's comfortable for them, you can stick
a treat or toys in there for them as well... a blanket, pillow, what you
This is "Elvis" in his bag sitting on a "JetBlue Airplane Seat"
flying to his new home... Many airlines are very lenient and allow for
the puppy to sit like this or be carried on your lap...
Gunther at the Airport fast asleep and happy in his little travel
bag and sweater... Waiting for his flight home inside the plane next to
his new mommy....
Gumbeaux flying home with his parents... He's on the plane here
being carried in the bag by his new mommy.... Some flight attentdants arent
too picky where you place the bag :)
Stella in her bag at the airport ready to fly back to AZ
This is Stella's brother Moose inside the plane by his parents
feet flying back to his new home in MAINE...
The other brother HOOTIE flying home in the plane with his new
parents... safe and sound by their feet.... Yes, as you see most do let
the babies stick their faces out (big bat ears not included in Hootie's
case lol)... They even let you carry them... They sleep and relax
and it's not stressful at all. They also do not go potty in their bags,
they do really well.
This is an adult waiting to board a flight... You can fly with
adults up to I believe 22lbs. This girl LuLu lives bicoastal in NY and
LA and flies ALL THE TIME with her mommy.... She even has a special pass
where she can sit on one of the seats when she's inside the plane.
Puppies will ALWAYS get their Vet check up before pick up:
The Vets office can be scary, not for these
or this boy... he was having fun with his
chew... his little sissy was a bit nervous and held on to her brother for

and kennel cough/bordetella nasal vaccine
(no longer done) Vet prefers injectible one which is given on opposite
shoulder of the Puppy booster vaccine. This is a clear shot where the booster
is pink. If owner wants they can choose the nasal type which is effective
quicker, but on flat faced breeds the injectible is preferred, less side
