How We Handle Our Puppy Deposits & Shipping



the only way we do it is with a pet nanny

We can ship a puppy in the Continental U.S. with a pet nanny. That means a person picks up the puppy from me, puts the puppy in a pet carrier and the puppy rides on the plane with the person – NOT CARGO, and hand delivers the puppy to you at an airport of your choice. At NO time does Tara’s Schnauzers receive any money for shipping puppy via a pet nanny – all money is given directly to the pet nanny – we do not make money on shipping puppies! Most deliveries within the United States are $500-550* and yes, believe it or not that includes everything! A non-refundable deposit is required to reserve a day once we check availability, usually $150-200 via PayPal or Venmo. The remainder is due in cash at the airport at delivery. Major/international airports are the only ones we can guarantee during COVID-19 due to limited routes available, but are successfully completing and accepting some smaller airports when possible. Flexible date range helps as well. The nanny will text 24-48 hours before delivery date with flight times and information. We fly stand by so delays can happen. Nanny and pet begin their journey, never losing sight of one another. Puppy flies in cabin at ALL times, nannies update real time during trip. Arriving at receiver’s airport their journey comes to an end, that’s it!

*Alaska and Puerto Rico $750-$850 USD.

These guys take great care of your puppy while in transit; a tip is always  greatly appreciated!

***”Effective immediately, I will be implementing a delivery fee for transporting your puppy to the airport. The fee will cover the costs associated with a 5-hour round trip, including gas and other expenses. Thank you for your understanding and please let me know if you have any questions. The fee is the current going rate of .65 a mile it is $65.00

If you don’t live far enough to ship a puppy via plane, I can meet you within one hour of my home for .65 a mile. 

Or you are welcome to come to my house to pick up the puppy at a pre arranged day and time. I require that at least half of puppy price be paid & cleared before coming to my house and the rest must be in cash at pick up.  I, however, cannot allow looky loos, this is for someone who has purchased a pup and is coming to get their puppy.

Placing A Deposit

Waiting list deposit; $500 – non-refundable, goes towards purchase price of your puppy.  Be sure to do your due diligence. I try to be as transparent as possible, please ask all your questions BEFORE putting your deposit. The deposit is to be sure you get the puppy you want, but I stop advertising that puppy once deposit is placed and that means I could lose out on possible real sale of the puppy. For more information about deposits please see our Puppy Pricing Policy page.

Waiting list: Once puppies are born I go down the waiting list in the order the deposits were received until all puppies are spoken for.  If any puppies are available after the waitlist or if they weren’t chosen they will be listed on my puppies for sale page.

Balance due at pick up / if being delivered by pet nanny – balance is due before puppy leaves for airport to be delivered to you.

Puppies are sold to pet homes only – no papers.

PLEASE NOTE:  We work by waiting list ONLY.  If we have a puppy available outside of the waiting list.  I do not keep a contact list of those “interested”. Those that do not want to place a waiting list deposit can check the website to see if any pups are available from a new litter.  IF I do have any puppies that did not get spoken for from the waiting list they will be posted on the website.

Our Puppies come with – vet check, age appropriate vaccines, de-worming, tails docked (can keep the tail for you if you tell me before puppy is 3 days of age), dewclaws removed,  a certified copy of registration, microchipped, 100% Money Back Lifetime Genetic Health Guarantee. 

When you are ready to put a current puppy on hold or place a deposit for a future litter, I am now sending invoices which helps me keep track financially and for you to have that extra security for sending money via the internet. Once you receive the invoice, you can look it over to be sure everything is correct before securely sending your money. You can pay the invoice via PayPal, Venmo, CashApp, Zelle, or credit card. Please add 2.9% for fees taken by: PayPal, Venmo or credit card.

*Shipping is extra – see above
