WHEN PUPPIES ARE BORN!
This is such an exciting time! Puppies are born in the special nursery in our home. It is warmed in winter and cooled in summer. The first few days and nights are spent handling the newborns to make sure all are well, and that they're all warm and getting equal time at the mama's milk bar. When we've managed to get some sleep, then it's time to sort through the wait list to see if mother nature has given us a puppy or two who match your basic preferences such as colour and gender.
When will you know that you have a puppy?
The Rutlands Difference
Your Rutlands puppy is cuddled and loved on here by males and females, from baby to elderly and frail, and from known and loved Team members, to strangers of all ages. Crate trained and well prepared for travel, with collar and leash training well under way.
After vaccination it's off to visit the town centre and kindy. Rutlands Cobberdogs are welcome in the local community including preschools and hospitals for their mellow friendly ways and clean odour free non shedding coats.
There's very little of the outside world that will phase a Rutlands bred puppy prepared with our time proven techniques that begin even before they are born!
About Long Distance Travel
Airlines do NOT allow animals to be in passenger cabins on international flights no matter what the size. But our puppies travel 1st class international, in roomy kennels big enough to lie down and stretch out for a long sleep which young puppies do a lot of wherever they are. They enjoy the same controlled air conditioned comfort as do the human passengers. And we do not allow them to fly on week ends, when the animal travel watchdog IATA is not on duty at the airports
Before your puppy leaves Australia, an especially accredited govt vet thoroughly examines your puppy and provides the health certificate that allows puppy to leave Australia.
As soon as the airline confirms the booking to Petex, they will let you know the flight itinerary and you can track your puppy's progress on line. Any queries you have about travel should be addressed directly to Petex. We have no control over travel costs.
Upon entry into another country, Comfort Stops meet your puppy, pass him/her through customs and provide a time of refreshing, when puppy is taken out of the travel kennel, played with, and cleaned up if necessary, as is the kennel.
If traveling further on a domestic flight, when puppy is rested and refreshed, the comfort stop books the flight to your designated nearest airport and sees your puppy safely onto the flight. All of this is included in your final invoice unless you are in Europe. If you live in Europe the shipping company will work with you directly.
Award winning pet travel experts at Petex have managed all the details for Rutlands puppies' travel for many years. Their care and service are exemplary and when investigating the continuing changes in each country's requirements, and the airlines' changing agreements with one another, routes and partners are always chosen by Petex with the puppies' best interests at heart.
