I have agreed on a price for a  patterdale puppy in Czech Republic but the shipping cost the seller quoted me seemed a little suspect. I'm afraid he may have underestimated the cost and I want to make this as drama free as possible.

What should it cost to ship a 6-8 lb puppy from the Czech Republic to Atlanta International Airport..??

Is there some type of online calculator like you use to estimate UPS shipments..???

Thanks..!!!!

I have no idea about the cost, but it would be the quarantine that would concern me.

I've never imported a dog, but I'm thinking there is something like a 30 day quarantine when you bring one into the country. Not a huge deal if its an adult, but that's a lot of bonding/training time you miss out on while the dog is locked in a cage staring thru the bars at customs (or wherever it is they keep them), especially if you are talking about a young pup!

Never heard of them but reading they sound like pit bulls with a Napoleon complex.

Do you not have a dog pound near you?  There are plenty of great dogs there too......

I always though there was a quarantine required to bring dogs in the US from abroad but that's not the case when importing from certain countries including the Czech Republic as long as the have proper vaccinations.

I have a 11 mo patterdale male and he's a fireball on game but a loveable little bastard around the house.

This squirrel was a little to far from the nearest tree when "Beastie"  spotted him.

So, there isn't a single ATL to PRG direct flight I can find... or vice versa for that matter. Which means two flights at a minimum. Your shipping cost is going to be pretty damn high regardless of the carrier. You might be cheaper finding someone who is a pilot friend or works for an airline who can fly out there for free (jumpseat) or cheap and just pick the dog up and fly back. That is of course if you know someone in aviation. Airlines are funny about flying with animals international though.

I wish I had a "pilot friend" but I'm not quite so lucky.

If you can get the pup to Munich you can get direct flights.

Call a customs brokerage firm. Atlanta Customs Brokers was a client of mine back in the day.

I had a neighbor at PCS'ed and had a dog and cat transported to Germany. He paid $2,3xx.xx to have the two pets transported. He said he had some quotes from $2,500-$3,500.
