Delivery by us, the Breeder
If you are located within driving distance of Mountain Home, Arkansas, you are always welcome to pick your puppy up in person! We are more than happy to meet you in a public setting for the delivery of your puppy on most days of the week around our work and school schedules. If you need us to meet you, we are occasionally willing to do so, timer permitting, within a 60 mile radius of Mountain Home, Arkansas, for an additional fee. Our delivery fee is based on the current standard mileage rate of 58.5 cents per mile and is calculated from Mountain Home, AR, to the designated meeting place and back based on the distance given by Google Maps. Our availability for this option is limited and revolves around the school hours and activities of our kids, but we will do our best to work with you and come up with a delivery date and time that suits everyone! We do make frequent trips to West Plains, MO and can often meet there.
If you need us to arrange ground delivery of your puppy, we are happy to do so. The charge for this service is $500, coast to coast within the continental USA. We have used A & K Wags on Wheels, who deliver directly to your address, with their drop off schedule being the 4th, 14th, and 24th of each month. If any of those dates fall on a holiday or on a Sunday, they make their pick-up the day after. They will provide a GPS link via the Life360 app and which gives you the ability to watch their journey as they head your way with your new baby. They do not give an approximate delivery date and time due to the nature of delivering directly to each home along their route and they will delivery at all times of the day and night, so you must be available to take possession of your puppy when they arrive at your door. We ask that you watch your baby's progress through the Life360 link so you will have a better idea of your delivery time.
Delivery via the Airlines
This option has become more difficult for us in recent years. The Boxer is a snub-nosed (Brachycephalic) breed and, therefor, not allowed to fly on any airline unless accompanied by an owner or a pet nanny. The puppies can only travel in the passenger cabin of the airline and must be small enough to fit in a carrier that will fit under the airline seat. For these reasons, arranging delivery via the airlines becomes a challenge for our Boxer babies and I do not have a price for this option as it is a case-by-case basis. I can make arrangements with Ozark Jet A Pet to get an 8 week old Boxer baby to the airport in St. Louis, MO, where it will then be up to you to pick your baby up and continue to travel with him/her, or, I can meet you at the Springfield/Branson Airport in Springfield, MO, where you will take possession of your Boxer baby. Booking the flight to and from either STL or SGF is your responsibility.
This option is slightly easier for the Dachshund babies since they are allowed to fly in a climate-controlled and pressurized area of the airplane without the need of a flight nanny or owner. The cost for this service is $500. The only departing airport option is St. Louis, MO, (STL) and we can fly into many International Airports across the US. If this is the option you would like to use, please contact us and we will look into booking your flight into the airport closest to you. We use Ozark Jet A Pet for flight bookings.
On occasion we have received requests for a puppy to stay with us for an additional amount of time. If you cannot take ownership of your puppy when they reach 8 weeks of age, we are willing to keep your puppy here with us until you are available for delivery. Our fee for this service is $10/day or $60/week. This only applies to situations where you need us to board your puppy for additional days or weeks after your puppy has reached 8 weeks of age. In order for us to arrange delivery, we do give a 3 day grace period for delivery after each puppy reaches 8 weeks of age or a 3 day grace period after your purchase if your puppy is already 8 weeks of age at the time of purchase. If a delayed delivery is due to transportation limitations or a scheduling conflict on our end, we will not charge for boarding as long as you can take delivery of your puppy on the first available delivery date after your puppy turns 8 weeks of age. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us by phone/text at 417.293.6061
