Frequently Asked Questions

 

Our Pets

What health checks and vaccinations are given to your Puppies?

All our Pets will have all necessary vaccinations according to their age, origin country and of course their new home location. All original health documents will be sent with your puppy and you’ll receive the digital copies prior to arrival. Whilst waiting to join their new family, your Pup will have regular vet checks as they age prior to minimum Air travel age. We’ll send you all the vet check certificates also to keep you in the loop.

What training will my Puppy have before pup arrives?

with regards to training it highly depends on age of the Puppy. Every Pup is sourced from highly reputable Breeders around Europe so you can expect above average intelligence in every Pup.  Basic socialising, like getting used to be around people, children other dog breeds can be expected right from the moment the Pup is welcomed to their new home. As the Puppies get older, breeder will start getting them used to walking on leash, sit-stay and fetch commands are also common. Toilet training is started when they are over 12 weeks but as we’re sure you’ll already know, toilet training will have to be done intensively in their new home.

Do all your Pet’s come with Pedigree Certificates?

YES, all our Pet’s come with full Pedigree certificate which are also transferred to your name. This transferal is called an Export Pedigree Certificate. We offer this additional service Free of Charge!

The only exception of Pedigree certificates is when a Breed is not recognised by the Kennel Clubs. Any exceptions will be mentioned on the Puppy page.

Do all Airtails Pet’s have Champion Bloodlines?

We aim to find champion bloodlines Pets and of course champion Breeders!

Any exceptions for champion bloodlines Pet are mentioned on each Pet page.

 

Buying a Pet from Airtails

When do I have to pay for my chosen Puppy?

We only ask for a 25% deposit on the Puppy cost to reserve your new Pup so we can confirm you as the new owner with the Breeder. The remaining balance of Pup must be settled in full by 12 weeks of age. Shipping amount to be settled 10 days before scheduled agreed arrival date.

What if I change my mind?

We ask you to think carefully before adopting any Puppy, as owning a dog is a big commitment. If you cancel within first 48 hours, we will refund your deposit in full, minus any charges. After 48 hours, your deposit most likely cannot be refunded as this money would have gone to breeder to reserve your Puppy. We’ll try to recover your deposit but we have we have no guarantee after 48 hours.
