We have been so blessed with Country Lane's success and astonished at the power of word of mouth testimonials. Since we began five years ago, we have watched our little Bernedoodle breeding business go from serving mainly the Midwest, to quickly expanding across the United States! Our puppies reside in 41 out of the 50 states! With that reach, I decided we needed the best type of delivery service I could think of for our incredible puppies and wonderful customers. I thought, "What if I could find someone that I know and trust to exclusively deliver my puppies to my out of state families by air - a flight nanny of our very own?" Well, I'm very happy to introduce you to our wonderful nanny, Sydney!
Sydney actually owns two Country Lane Bernedoodles @grizzandluna_minibernedoodles and has a true love for dogs! On top of that, she is passionate about Country Lane and our mission! We absolutely love her, and we know you will, too! If you want to learn more, keep reading.

+How does it work?
When your opportunity comes to pick out your puppy, if you're out of state and don't plan on visiting Country Lane in person, you will select your puppy during your scheduled phone call appointment on Go-Home Day. At that time, we will start working out the preferred delivery date/time details with Country Lane on a Plane. Once we've settled on a flight itinerary and ticket price, that payment, as well as the remaining balance for your puppy, is due before we book the ticket. Once we receive payment in full, we will proceed with the booking, and a confirmed delivery date and time is set! My nanny will set up a meeting point at your airport on delivery day! She can usually only delivery one puppy at a time, so her services will be offered in order to those picking from the litter needing her service.
+How much does it cost?
You will pay Country Lane for the round trip plane tickets for us to fly from our state to yours and back (roughly $500-$1000) and the pet carry on fee to fly your puppy in cabin ($125). The nanny fee ($500) is paid directly to my nanny upon delivery for her service!
+Can more than one puppy be delivered to the same destination?
Sometimes! We often have puppies within a litter needing delivery to a shared destination airport. We can deliver two puppies at a time, providing that their weight combined with the carrier's weight totals under 20 lbs. If so, the cost of the plane tickets and pet carry on fee would be shared between the two families. The nanny fee will remain $500 for each family. Usually this is only possible for our smaller sizes (Tinys and Minis. Sorry, Standard Bernedoodle customers!).
+What type of payment method do you accept?
For the plane tickets, pet carry on fee, and remaining puppy balance that is due upon receipt, we accept Venmo (@countrylanebernedoodles), and Paypal or credit card (additional 3% fee with these methods). The Nanny Service Fee is due before or during hand off, and my nanny accepts Venmo.
+Can I track the flights that my puppy is on?
Yes! In addition to my nanny keeping you updated throughout the day when she can and posting updates on @countrylaneonaplane's Instagram, you can track the flights on your phone by Googling the Airline and Flight number, which my nanny will disclose in the days leading up to delivery, to keep track of any changes with the flight’s time, terminal and gate. For Example, AA#2132 Also, the FlightView App is very useful.
+Do I get to keep the carrier?
Our carrier stays with us, so if you desire, you will need to bring a puppy sling or carrier to the airport to bring your puppy home in.
