Hudson's Malamutes - Frequently Asked Questions

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



We do encourage you to come see and pick up your puppy in person. We do understand that not everyone has that option so these shipping options are what we have available below.

Our shipping has doubled in the last few years. Please read the information below as it gives detailed information on how and where the puppies are shipped!

We DO NOT provide kennels or carriers for your puppy This is an extra cost if you request one if we can accommodate or I encourage you to get your own where you reside and have it when picking up the pup.

We now only ship nationwide out of BNA international airport in Nashville, Tennessee via "Flight Nanny". All shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer, along with any costs for special health requirements.

Total cost for flight nanny shipping is $500 (this is shipping ONE puppy) (Adults or large puppies Malamute Puppies over 25 lbs (10-12 weeks) can not be shipped via flight nanny.

Please see information below for pups/dogs over 25lbs.

Pups are brought via flight nanny to your nearest Major International airport. Not all airports are serviced by Delta so please inquire about your nearest location. Our flight nanny will pick the day they can go so you need to be flexible. Flight nanny will contact you the week the puppy is going to be shipped. You will be contacted by the flight nanny to pick up at the airport when he/she arrives. Pups are shipped on a plane the same as you and I would be. Pups most of the time leave early in the morning and arrive by afternoon or evening. Pups will be with the flight nanny in the cabin of the plane supervised at all times. Please be aware this is very safe as most of my pups are shipped. And this is the least stressful on the puppy so that is why we ship this way now.

Pups are picked up at the airport person to person. If you do not pick up your pup or do not arrive for any reason and the flight nanny has to leave you will be responsible for either picking your pup up in person or re-paying the fee to ship again. And I have been shipping for years this is a very easy process and goes very smoothly. So contrary to what you may hear about shipping puppies it is one of the fastest and safest way to get your puppy.

Please note that flight nanny's are on standby flights. What that means is if the flight is full and they can not get onto the flight they expected, they will have to get a different flight and come at a later time or even come back home and try again usually the next day. Flight nanny's keep in contact with you as they get on flights and where they are. So you need to be flexible with your time the day that is scheduled. But you will be made aware of where they are and when they are expected to arrive. So be vigilant and aware that sometimes plans change.

Please note- BNA is a round trip drive of 145 miles for us and we hire a ground shipper to deliver to the airport, and meet you. There is a $120 fee for this. So if you need a puppy delivered to the airport because your flying in it is $120 for us to hire someone to come to you. We encourage you to come see where your pup lives if you're coming this far. It's only once in 10-15 years. So please make an effort if you can to come to see where your pup lives. This is very important to know where your pup is coming from, lives and how it is taken care of. With any breeder!

Malamute puppies over 12 weeks can no longer be shipped via air. You will need to check with us if it is possible to get a Giant Malamute over 12 weeks to you. As this also could take more time as well as need you to be flexible on where your pup comes.

Dogs over 25lbs or multiple puppies going to the same area may be ground shipped. We have our own shipper that takes only our dogs. We do not like our dogs mixed with others for health reasons. So this is also an option mostly on east coast or mid west. We do have a few other shippers that have multiple dogs at one time but those are the cases of a very large puppy going to the west coast. But we prefer you come in person if you can.

All puppies come with a little food. They have absorbable bedding so they will stay dry, until you get them. 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 your 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.

Alaska (Contact for more info)

Hawaii only personal pick up accepted. No shipping.

Canada has changed. We can ship to Canada but pricing will vary per pet. Approximate cost is going to be $1000 -$1200. So if you do not want to incur that cost for shipping into Canada, please make arrangements to pick up in person or to meet a flight nanny at the nearest US airport same as above.

There is a good possibility that puppies will be overnight with the international shipper. There is additional Canadian charge for customs on your side, so remember it is costly to go into Canada. We do suggest pick up on US side and you personally bring the pup over the boarder.

U.S. or Canada Shipping ONLY

The flight nanny that carries your pup loves it and 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". So rest assured that your puppy will always be in good hands.
