The whole process was well done. The puppy managers were especially understanding and helpful. My only suggestion is you might contact your clients when their puppy is placed at the airport and ready to depart for it’s destination.
Donald - We truly appreciate you for trusting us to fetch your new best friend and we are glad that you had a positive experience with PuppySpot. More importantly, we are happy to know that your puppy arrived happy and healthy, as that is our top priority. We rely on valuable feedback from customers like you to continue to provide our community with the joyful, trusted experience they deserve. When confirming travel arrangements with puppy parents, we make sure to provide all travel details including their pup's confirmation number, air waybill number and direct contact number to the airline. We also ask that our puppy parents connect with the airline directly to receive the most up to date flight information and exact pickup details. We apologize if this wasn't thoroughly explained. We will be sure to do better in the future. Our service did not end with the delivery of your puppy, we will continue to be here for you both, throughout your puppy parent journey!
I had problems from the moment I sent my payment! Big lack of communication. Then they put this poor little puppy in a crate & shipped him off to me on a 12 hour trip when they could have done a non-stop 3-4 hour trip. I'm sure it was probably cheaper for them to do the 12 hours. And when I brought it to their attention, no one there gave a darn about this poor guy. I spoke to a puppy mgr, then to her supervisor, who actually cared even less about traumatizing this poor little baby. They have me the flight arrival time only. Had I known he was being dropped off 12 hours earlier, I never would have agreed to that! I would have insisted on a non-stop. Then it turns out this breeder turns out "dirty puppies". Which I found out means the puppies are left in the crates so long that they get used to going potty in their bed. Regardless of how many times I would let him out, he would go into his crate & pee in his bed. I spoke to a trainer that told me it was the fault of a bad breeder. 3k to get a terrible experience, bad communication, traumatic unnecessary 12 hour airport trip, and a "dirty puppy" that is going to take way more intensive training to get him out of that habit. Good luck. Anyway, would I use them again? Not in a million years.
Jackie - Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Our top priority is always the health and well-being of our puppies. That is why your puppy came from a pre-screened breeder who met our high standards (PuppySpot has a zero-tolerance policy for puppy mills or substandard breeding of any kind.) Additionally, we want to assure you that your puppy was well cared for during her 6-hour journey home, not the 12 hours you referred to in your review. Although we would love to have our puppies travel on direct flights, there are several factors to consider while booking animal air travel, including the fact that not all planes are equipped to transport animals safely. PuppySpot only works with leading airlines who offer pet-friendly programs that make the health and safety of all animals in their care a priority. Though it may not be the most direct route for your puppy to travel home to you, we assure you it was a decision made with careful consideration and your puppy’s best interest in mind. That being said, we never want a puppy parent to feel as if they are unable to reach us for updated information at any point of their experience, and we apologize if that was the case for you. Despite your frustrations to date, we will continue to be here as a source of guidance and support as you need us in your puppy parent journey.
What a great place to get a puppy! PuppySpot stayed with me throughout the entire process and still follows up with me even after getting my new family member. Great job PuppySpot and thank you!
Easy website to navigate, quick response to your puppy request. Quick to get payment and get the ball rolling with services they provide, warranties, guarantees of a heathy pup... here is where they lack. There communication website. They tell you that you will have one concierge in charge of the communication between you and the breeder and promise to answer all of your questions. As a new puppy owner, I had a lot. Excited and anxious to get my little treasure home. However, there were multiple people answering back, some not so nice. From the answers I received, it sounded like they were working so hard on the answers and when they came, it was not very informative. It felt secretive. This made me uncomfortable. I was given multiple travel itineraries because they wouldn’t fly out on the promised day. I ended up flying to Missouri to pick my baby up. The breeder was able to communicate with me only the day prior to picking up my pup, I felt so relieved at this point Bobbie was amazing, reassuring, informative, she truly cares for her pups and wants to ensure that you are happy and raising them with any and all information you need. We still text back and forth about every other day she checks in. I was also supposed to receive a refund on my travel expenses since I flew to pick her up, still haven’t received that refund and it’s been 2 weeks. Overall so pleased with the breeder... quality pups from healthy, registered dogs. Once payment is made in full communication with PuppySpot is not the best. Their pups are over priced as well. Depending on where you live, check out local quality breeders.
Tracy - We appreciate your honest and detailed feedback about your experience fetching your newest best friend. Our team works incredibly hard to thoroughly and consistently communicate with our puppy parents, which is why we were disappointed to learn that may not have been the case for you at any point in your experience and is the polar opposite of what we strive to provide. Regarding your refund, we are happy to report that your refund has been processed as promised. While we are happy that your puppy arrived happy and healthy we want you to know that your feedback is very important to us and taken very seriously. A member of our team will reach out to you directly, to learn more and see how we may improve. PuppySpot is a community, dedicated to being here for you and your puppy every step of the way!
I was somewhat skeptical about getting a puppy online. But I couldn’t find the dog I was looking for locally, so online I went. Everyone I dealt with at PuppySpot was beyond competent, friendly, and reassuring at every step of the process. I was so worried about a tiny puppy flying so far, but he arrived in perfect condition and also in a great mood. He is healthy, beautiful, friendly, VERY ACTIVE, and everything I wanted in a puppy/canine companion. He does pee a lot!. Very happy with my puppy and with PuppySpot services. Thanks.
This was a great experience and I have told numerous people to check out this site. Everything went just as they said it would. Pup was flown to us and we’ve been a happy little family
Let’s begin with the process, I am very impressed with the level of communication from the very beginning to the day our pup arrived. A 2plane travel day. Finley, his new name, has a great disposition and his puppy personality is blossoming. I would not hesitate in recommending PuppySpot.
expensive but good job
We are very pleased with the little girl Yorkie puppy that we picked out. She has turned out to be loads of fun already in our first week of having her home. We were very uncertain about purchasing a puppy without meeting the puppy first or at least visiting with the breeder. In fact we did not purchase the first puppy we had picked out because of this. After looking around further we came back to puppyspot. Although we were still somewhat uncomfortable with paying for her we went ahead and did so without seeing her first. When she arrived at the airport we fell in love immediately with her and not just a picture or a write-up about her. We were home only a few minutes before we received a call from the breeder to check on her to be sure everything went okay and to talk at length with us about her. We most appreciated that phone call from the breeder, as we learned so much more about her than what's in the write-up. If we are ever looking for another little Yorkie we likely will be checking with puppyspot, again.
What an amazing service, amazing people with amazing support!!! amazing puppy too!! Cant stop talking about Puppy Spot!!
Transportation date and plans changed from what we were initially told which was very inconvenient.
Fret - Bringing a new puppy home should be a joy, not a headache, and we're sorry for the confusion surrounding your puppy's arrival. We understand it’s a huge privilege to be a part of helping you select your new family member and we could have done a better job communicating and coordinating your pup's travel with you. We appreciate your flexibility and apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused. That said, we're happy to hear that your puppy arrived safely and is already thriving in her forever home!
All smooth from purchase thru the long trip. A great puppy from a good breeder, they must have done teaching too.
Very impressed with the care and concern that was asked from us before we purchased our baby! KUDOS to all!
The great it's
From the very moment we connected with puppy spot it’s been an absolute joy working with them. They are professional in every sense from the initial phone interview to the follow ups. Getting a puppy is not an easy task, they make sure it will be.
