thats an incredibly broad and IMO ridiculous statement. plenty of pets go through travel totally fine, and plenty of GOOD breeders ship.
the ideal thing would be for owners to pick up their new puppy, but that isn't always possible. good breeders build up a solid relationship with buyers, especially those who plan on shipping and go from there.

Shipping is done only when weather is very good. dogs are put into a safe crate, sometimes even zip tied shut. with some water frozen and comfortable bedding

accidents do happen, and I feel for those who have lost pets during shipping. but the MAJORITY of animals that are shipped are totally fine when they arrive

as long as the breeder has a good relationship who hes shipping the pup to, and the people are on time and ready to pick up their new family member, then Im all for it.

I would love to go fly to a breeder to pick up my future puppy, but sometimes that isn't possible and the $300 shipping fee is just more do-able.

Thank you for calling Smudge's breeder irreputable. Maybe you need to get to know people within the dog show world a little better. So far you have come off as a donkey, but thank you.

Guess you can include me too Mafia !!! I would never buy on line without someone personally knowng the kennel and have them sent sight unseen . This gal picked out her pup at 4 weeks and had to wait until I'd ship at 12 weeks . Add: I also had one from Florida , but she prefered to drive up and pick her's up . Then there was a litter of Bubba's in Cleveland .....three pups were driven to me for their new homes . Luckily I had a good following and no one was disappointed .

I am entitled to my opinion and you are entitled to yours. We are both entitled to disagree with each others opinions but that does not give anyone the right to call each other names. What are we school children on a playground?

So you can essentially call her dog a product of a mill of BYB but she can't offer a rebuttal?

Your logic is FAIL, good sir.

you didn't state your opinion, nowhere in that post did you say "in my opinion" or "As far as Ive seen" or anything like that. you made a big generalized and insulting statement to not only those who breed dogs and ship pups responsibly, but those who own dogs from breeders who ship. and you expect people not to get offended?

I don't think the issue is transporting an animal.

I think the issue is about the method of transportation.

I'd have real issue putting a dog in a cargo hold. Airlines are NOTORIOUS for losing and breaking things, no matter how comfy and warm the dog is I would not trust a 3rd party to look after my baby (essentially what a puppy is).

I wouldn't fly my niece out to France in the cargo, no matter how warm and cosy her crib was.

Not that I have a niece, but it's the same thing to me.
