Local Delivery
    We will be happy to deliver your puppy within 100 miles of our doorstep inside California at the rate of  
    $.80 per mile*. We will also deliver to Southwestern Nevada (Las Vegas & surrounding areas) &
    Northwestern Arizona at the same rate.
    *(price is round trip based on mileage determined by yahoo maps or map quest)

    Shipping
    Shipping rates will vary. Please check airlines for rules regarding the shipment of animals. Buyer is
    responsible for transportation, meeting the requirements of the transport company and all charges
    related to the shipping process (ie. Health certificate, crate, flight or delivery accommodations & any
    other expenses that may be incurred.) We prefer to use Continental Airlines  as they have controlled
    temperatures suitable for live animals but will ship with whatever airline is safest for the pup at the
    time. Airlines will not allow puppies to be shipped if they are under 8 weeks of age and all dogs over 16
    weeks must have a rabies certificate. All puppies will fly out of LAX or Ontario Intl. depending on
    which airport can provide the most direct flight. The health of the puppy is our top priority.

    Domestic
  • All puppies will require a minimum of 1st shots including DHLPP-C, Bordetella and Rabies (if over 16
    weeks). Hawaii requires 120 day quarantine from the date the rabies vaccine has been given. Please
    check with airlines for any quarantine requirements for your state as boarding fees will apply. Buyer is
    responsible for overnight kenneling fees at the airport should it be necessary.
  • The airline requires all dogs to be contained in an air travel approved crate large enough for the animal
    to turn around and sit upright without touching the sides or top. They must be lined with absorbent pads
    and have 2 attached dishes. Crates vary in price between $50-$200 depending on height and weight of
    the dog. (Ex. A pup that is 6 months of age may weigh approximately 50# and will require a crate
    suitable for a 75# dog that will cost around $120 for the crate linings and bowls. The cost to ship 8 week
    old puppies will be significantly less.)
  • The puppy must be examined within 10 days prior to shipping and a health certificate must be provided
    upon arrival to the airport. Veterinarians charge around $45 for the exam and certificate.
  • The total cost of shipping an 8 week old puppy is on average $350 whereas a 6 month old, 50# puppy
    domestically is on average $500.00 (this is an estimated amount & will be more or less depending on
    size, weight, age and destination and includes all vaccines, health certificate, crate & accessories, one
    way flight and surcharge. This estimate does not include boarding fees if applicable or purchase price).
    We do try to keep the cost as low as possible without jeopardizing the welfare of the puppy.
  • All surcharges & veterinarian fees are due at the time of purchase. Flight charges are due within 10
    days of planned shipment. Puppies will not be shipped until all fees are paid in full. There is no
    surcharge for shipping within the Continental United States.
  • We do not ship to HI. Contact us for alternative methods of shipping.

    International
    We prefer to keep our dogs in the Continental United States. However in very rare instances we may
    ship overseas. Contact us for international purchasing requirements.
    Our international shipping policy is as follows:
  • There will be a $100 surcharge for all animals that we ship internationally. This surcharge covers our
    expenses while preparing your puppy to ship. This include trips to the veterinarian, USDA and airport
    for final shipment. All puppies will require a minimum of 1st shots including DHLPP-C, Bordetella and
    Rabies (if over 16 weeks). Quarantine in excess of 30 days may be necessary.
  • The airline requires all dogs to be contained in an air travel approved crate large enough for the animal
    to turn around and sit upright without touching the sides or top. They must be lined with absorbent pads
    and have 2 attached dishes. Crates vary in price between $50-$200 depending on height and weight of
    the dog. (Ex. A pup that is 6 months of age may weigh approximately 50# and will require a crate
    suitable for a 75# dog that will cost around $120 for the crate linings and bowls.)
  • The puppy must be examined within 10 days prior to shipping and an International health certificate
    must be provided upon arrival to the airport. Veterinarians charge around $45 for the exam and
    certificate.
  • All dogs leaving US soil must have an International Health Certificate signed by a veterinarian (~$45)
    and stamped by the USDA (~$25). Unaccompanied animals may be considered commercial and may
    require an import permit to ship which will require an additional fee. Please contact the import ministry
    of your country or destination airport for this information.
  • All dogs leaving US soil require an internationally approved microchip. Home Again Microchip System is
    accepted which is included in the price of your puppy or dog.
  • It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that we have the proper veterinary forms & information on
    import requirements for your country (. I.e. EU Journal in English & language of country of
    destination, etc.).
  • Buyers responsibilities include but are not limited to crate, health certificate, boarding fees during U.S.
    quarantine, vaccinations, necessary veterinary fees after date of purchase, USDA fees & cargo flight
    fees. Buyer is also responsible for overnight kenneling fees at the airport should it be necessary.
  • The total cost of shipping a 6 month old, 50# puppy internationally is on average $1100.00 - $1500.00
    (this is an estimated amount & will be more or less depending on size, weight, age and destination and
    includes all vaccines, health certificate, USDA seal, crate & accessories, one way flight and surcharge.
    This estimate does not include boarding fees or purchase price.)
  • All surcharges & veterinarian fees are due at the time of purchase. Flight charges are due within 30
    days of planned shipment. Puppies will not be shipped until all fees are paid in full.)

    Boarding & Fees***
    During long transfer times or quarantine we will board a puppy until it's shipping date at the rate of
    $5.00 per day per pup (under 6 months old) or $10.00 per day per adult dog (6 months or older). Buyer is
    responsible for all costs related to vaccinations, wormings & other fees incurred through veterinary
    care, etc. after date of purchase. We require all pups 16 weeks & over to have had a minimum of 3
    puppy shots in their series (DHLPP-C), Bordetella (Kennel Cough), & Rabies if over 16 weeks. Adult
    dogs must have yearly boosters for DHLPP-C,  Bordetella & Rabies**. In case of an emergency we will
    provide veterinary care at a facility of our choice. A puppy or dog that has not been picked up or shipped
    by the scheduled date due to buyer default will have a 10 day grace period at the regular boarding rate.
    Should said dog be left at our facility longer than 10 days without contact or new arrangements from
    buyer then the dog will be considered abandoned, become the property of CWF & we will reserve the
    right to keep, place or re-sell that dog. Puppies & dogs will not be released or shipped to buyer until all
    fees have been paid in full. We will do everything possible to keep an open line of communication with
    all of our clients.

**The vaccinations for Leptospirosis and Corona may be omitted at the buyers request

***We are a private kennel & will only board puppies & dogs that are in the process of leaving our facility
after having been sold or transferred.
