Hudson's Malamutes - Frequently Asked Questions

11. What airlines do you use for shipping? How does that work?

SHIPPING- We ship nationwide out of BNA international airport in Nashville, Tennessee.
All shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer, along with any costs for special health requirements. or airline overnight fees.
The cost of a standard Veterinary Certificate of Inspection is $40 (our cost - per pet), and will be issued with every animal being shipped.
Please note- BNA is a round trip drive of 175 miles for us and we formerly charged to cover our gas, mileage and time off from work. We are waiving this at this time to keep your shipping costs the same.
Shipping crates are $50 (for pups up to 8 weeks - may vary with older pups).
Shipping charges are usually $260 for puppies but vary based on the weight of the animal.
Our costs have doubled over the last few years, but for the convenience of our buyers we do not charge any more.

Total cost for shipping would be $300 (this is shipping a puppy) (Adults or large puppies(10-12 weeks) vary).
If two pups are shipped from the same litter or are relatively the same size they can be shipped in the same crate. You will need one other health certificate. Shipping two pups is $400.
Pups are shipped to the nearest major international airport providing the airlines goes to the specified airport.

My preferred airline is American Airlines, but other airlines may be available.

Pups are shipped to your nearest Major International airport. Pups are shipped on a plane the same as you and I would be. Pups are shipped most of the time in the morning and arrive by afternoon or evening. Pups breath the same air as you would on a plane and they are in the same climate controlled temperatures. Please be aware this is very safe as most of my pups are shipped.

Most puppies are picked up at Cargo. But not all airports have a cargo facility. If they do not have cargo you would then pick up at ticket counter. You will need to call the 800 number listed below to find out what each airport provides. Shipping is very safe. And I have been shipping for years. So contrary to what you may hear about shipping puppies it is one of the fastest and safest way to get your puppy.

All puppies are shipped with food on the kennel and are given some food and water before they leave. They have absorbable bedding so they will stay dry. Most flights are 5-8 hours so it is faster then if you were to go to sleep for eight hour every night. No matter what it will be a big day for you puppy and just as you can get jet-lag, so can a puppy. So time to sleep is what the pups need to adjust to all the new things in his/her life.

Shipping costs are $300 for U.S.

American's Safeguards for Pets Traveling Alone
American Airlines Cargo and Priority Parcel Service ship pets to most destinations. You can find information about pets traveling without a ticketed passenger at*, or by calling 800-CARGOAA (800-227-4622).

  • Dedicated 24-hour Live Animal Desk (1-800-227-4622)
  • Confirmed booking prior to departure
  • Weather conditions constantly monitored at all points
  • The ability to track and trace the animal from its origin to its destination
  • Great staff that helps when needed.
The people at the cargo terminals where the puppies come in, are "dog people" and love the puppies. As they told one of my pup's owners, "we let the puppies out of their crates for a little exercise, and follow around after them cleaning up their piddle".
