Delivery Options for Adopting My Puppy
Although we always love when families can pick up their puppies from their Partner Home, we certainly understand that there may be circumstances that make this especially challenging or even impossible for you.
For your convenience we are happy to provide our affordable Delivery Services. We have several options to help your puppy move to your home.
It is only very rarely that we are not able to fulfill a request for a delivery. Please be aware that it can be a little challenging to fulfill all our delivery requests on holiday weekends.
If you do choose to utilize one of our Delivery Services, we want to help ensure that your experience with your new puppy is a great one! Before arranging your delivery there are several things you may need to consider.

What Comes With My Puppy?
Finalizing Payment on Adoption Day
In regards to the payment of the final balance, Cash or Certified Check is our preference. You can hand final balance payment directly to your Puppy Courier or Flight Nanny on Adoption Day.
Differentiating Between a Pick-up and a Delivery
The full Crockett Doodles pick-up experience is made complete by an opportunity to converse with the Partner Home. Typically a pick-up appointment is about 20-30 minutes.
Please note that for a delivery, our Puppy Couriers will likely have been driving long distances so they will need to get back on the road and head home. A delivery is not a lengthy process like a pick-up experience in the Partner Home. You can allow about 10 minutes for a Puppy Courier to meet you and introduce your puppy to you.
We encourage you to consider tipping your Puppy Courier if he/she does a particularly good job.
If it has been a while since you’ve had a puppy (or maybe you are a first-time puppy parent), we encourage you to read over the resources our Partner Homes would have shared at your pick-up here: www.crockettdoodles.com/puppy-guide/
Regular Ground Delivery
We are thrilled to offer ground delivery to anywhere in the contiguous U.S. for our puppies. Please see the above map for pricing based on your location. Of course, the quickest way for you to adopt your puppy is for you to make the travel arrangements yourself and come to your puppy’s home on your scheduled Adoption Day. We know this just isn’t possible for all families and that some litters are available by ground delivery only, so we are excited to offer our ground delivery option.
Ground delivery is typically completed 1-10 days from your puppy’s scheduled Adoption Day depending on your location. Our Delivery Coordinator is working hard to coordinate several puppy deliveries into one trip with qualified and experienced Puppy Couriers, and this just takes time to do well.
Rest assured that your puppy will be well cared for in the meantime and that we will work to deliver your puppy to you just as soon as we can.
We typically deliver several puppies in the same area of the country in one delivery trip, so we’ll bring your puppy to your door. Because multiple families are involved in each delivery trip, we apologize that we’re just not able to coordinate meeting half-way.
Multiple Pups: If you have more than one pup delivered by our Ground Delivery Services (perhaps you are adopting two puppies or other friends or family are adopting pups from the same litter), the delivery fee is $200 each after the total delivery charge for the first puppy.
- Special Note about our Tiny Pups: Our Tiny Pups are our smallest puppies (Yorkipoos, Cavachons, Maltipoos, petite mini Cavapoos, etc.) that may weigh less than 5 pounds at their final vet check. Our vets assess each pup individually and typically we hold our Tiny Pups at their homes until they are 10+ weeks old to be sure they are ready for a road trip to their Forever Homes.
Flight Nanny ServiceONLY available for pups flying from the SC/NC areas who weigh 10 pounds or less at their final vet check.
Our Flight Nannies will fly personally with your puppy anywhere in the contiguous U.S. (see above for airports we fly to if you live in Alaska) in the passenger area of the plane to a major airport near you giving your sweet puppy individual attention and excellent care. You will then meet the Flight Nanny at the airport to receive your puppy directly.
If you are adopting two pups at the same time, the Flight Nanny delivery fee will be full price for the first pup and $300 more for the 2nd pup. This reduced rate for the 2nd pup only applies as long as both puppies are able to fit comfortably in the same carrier.
Sit Back, Relax and Get Ready!
Check out our Puppy Shopping List where Nathan has selected his preferred puppy items. You may find it useful as it serves as a checklist of sorts as you prepare to bring your puppy home! You’ll find helpful descriptions beside each item as you decide what you might need. Happy Shopping! www.crockettdoodles.com/shopping-list/
Any pup adopted from SC has a 6% sales tax, but pups picked up at another location (or delivered outside the state of SC) do not incur the SC sales tax.
Canada Delivery Options
We have many amazing Canadian families who have become Forever Homes to our puppies! While we’re unable to deliver to Canada at this time, here are two ways our Canadian families have picked up their puppies:
- One of our own Flight Nannies can fly with your puppy to an international airport in the northern U.S. like Syracuse, New York (SYR), Buffalo-Niagara, New York (BUF), Detroit, Michigan (DTW), or Seattle, Washington (SEA) and you can fly or drive to meet them there in the airport. Then you can return home to Canada that same day with your puppy. Zone delivery pricing applies.
- We can have one of our Ground Delivery Drivers bring your puppy to meet you at the international airports of Charlotte, North Carolina (CLT) for $199, or Atlanta, Georgia (ATL) for $299, where you can return home to Canada that same day with your puppy.
If you are interested in one of these options, please contact us at [email protected] for pricing and availability.
