8/20/2014
Thanks Ryan for the bid request we are already on the board, earlier then you requested would arrive NC between 9/14 - 9/21 We are heading out so, if you need a unit let me know or if the dates would even work for you. Report a Violation
Response: Hi, sorry about that! I clicked 'request bid' on accident. But, this is probably a good time to ask a couple questions. I'm pretty sure my dog has motion sickness. He pants and whines and paces quite a bit in the car, especially on long rides. I spent a good deal of time working with him on the nervousness/motion sickness, but it has never dissipated. On vets advise I've given him little bits of dramamine which didn't do anything. That said, he LOVES to go in the car. What I'm concerned about is the length of travel. The longest he has ever spent in the car was about a full days travel and it wasn't a good experience. For this I'm considering flying him out here due to the stress of driving. So, my questions are: do you have experience with nervous/motion-sick travellers and if so are there any steps you could/do take to alleviate or lessen the effects of travel? Do you, or do you recommend any companies that, do air travel for pets? Thanks so much for helping with this!8/20/2014Report a Violation
Response: We get the dogs out and exercise them 4 times per day. We monitor for stress etc. We haven't had a problem with that to date. Motion sickness is usually over in a couple days and we monitor for fluid loss and will supplement electrolytes if it is needed. We are like a kennel on wheels not road warriors that is why it takes a little longer. If you search in the Uship Directory then you can pick out some flight Nanny's. Of course he would have to travel below but, the nanny's from my understanding tend to him when they are allowed. Your mode of travel is a decision you will have to make.

Response: Thanks for the quick response, Roxy! Reading the reviews I don't doubt he'll be in great hands with you guys. Just trying to figure out if he can handle it ;) Thanks for the tip on flight nannies, I'll look into that. Thanks for your help and I'll be back in touch soon. Ryan8/20/2014Report a Violation
Response: Our hounds people use Delta as they now have pressurization in the belly, I am not sure if the other airlines have stepped up. Also keep in mind that their are additional cost from vetting to paperwork and particular Carriers. Their starting costs from the airlines for hound size is equal to ground shipping, sometimes less, give or take but, when you add in the additional cost our people say its closer to $700, more if it is a pit because of the special crates they require. Also, we just came out of the heat embargo, that said, keep in mind the departing temps need to be 70 as well as the destination temps on the day of travel. 8/20/2014Report a Violation
Response: Really good info! Thanks! I hadn't heard about the changes Delta has made. If I choose to go by ground, is he allowed to travel with his favorite toys and his pillow and things like that? 8/20/2014Report a Violation
Response: We provide everything that Little would need on his journey from toys to treats food if you like and bottled water bowls and leashes. I discourage sending his fav's simply because they get lost, chewed up etc. blankets beds pillows the same. Some of the pet parents take these items personal and I would not want to be the one that loses or damages these items. I want them to live to see another day. Roxy 8/20/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ok. I wouldn't care if they got chewed or lost on the way. He chews or loses them eventually ;). More for the comfort factor as he makes his way. I guess I'm asking if that's against your policy or not. :) Sorry for all the questions!8/20/2014Report a Violation
Response: No that would be OK as long as you won't be upset if Mr Froggy or the blue ball isn't returned he can bring the whole toy box. LOL Roxy8/20/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ok. Yea, I would rather he be able to travel with a few of his current favorites and a shirt or two of 'family' so he doesn't get too scared ;) I'll be reading a bit more about the UShip process but I think early next week I'll be formalizing/finishing the bid.8/22/2014Report a Violation
