Hi everyone. I'm new to the board scene, so let me know if I'm doing everything right. We have someone that is interested in one of our Newfoundland pups who lives in Canada. I have never shipped to Canada before, and was wondering if anyone on the boards could point me in the right direction to what papers need to be completed, etc. All the sites I have found have been no different than U.S. shipping. Any info you may have would be much appreciated.
Hello there, I just shipped a boxer puppy last week from Chicago to Calgary. I used Continental it was no more expensive than any where else in the US, though they will have a trans-boarder charge on their end at pick up, it was either $40 or $140. Anyway... health certificate was no different than normal. Things went very smoothly. Great as a matter of fact. Good luck.
I had a pup shipped from the states (lousianna) to Canada (Vancouver). The basics are the same (vet note, check 24 hr's in advance, etc) On the other end they need to beaware that they will have to pay a tax on the dog for the price they bought the dog in the states. (ex. paid $300 for dog, taxes would be about $64 or so on their end) They also have to pay a trans-border charge which is usually around $40. (clean up fee's can also be added if they had to empty accidents out.) It still not very much. I paid $36 on my end and that was a 8 hour flight for the pup. So it's not a hugh pick up fee. I think it actually depends on weight and at the time my pup weighed 22 pounds. So if the pup your shipping is around that weight or under it, it should be no more the $40 on that end plus the tax charge on the dog.
I had no problems what so ever. It more difficult to find a airline willing to ship to Canada, but actually both of the ones I use most frequently had no problem with it (Northwest and Continental). It was no different, and the vet check was the same and it had to be within 10 days of shipping, just like in the USA. Nothing was different.
My baby was supposed to be shipped to canada but there were problems with the airline. they wanted to keep her over night. The breeder shipped her to buffalo instead and I picked her up there. If the puppy is more than 3 months, it has to have a rabies shot to make it over the boarder. they will also need the original copy stating that the dog is properly vaccinated. also make sure to provide a receipt (it can be written) for tax purposes:) other than that everything should be fine!
I know that whenever we sell one of our cars, or buy one, we'd right over the title and say that it was bought for a dollar (but actually got more than that). Couldnt you do the same for whoever is picking up the pup?
