Flight Nanny Program
Why should I hire a flight nanny?
Your schedule is too busy
Jobs, kids, family... Life doesn't always allow for time away. We can meet your schedule needs for delivery at a local airport to cut down on time.
You don't enjoy traveling
We get it, not everyone enjoys traveling! Instead of causing yourself added stress, allow us to deliver your puppy.
You're nervous about flying with a dog
Our flight nannies are well-seasoned and have flown with numerous dogs on a variety of airlines.
"Bark 4 Joy was extremely efficient. As soon as I specified with my training reservation that I was interested in a flight nanny, they provided a few options for me to review. Sandy kept me up to date on where they were, how my pup was doing, and sent me pictures."

Q: What if my puppy isn't fully vaccinated?
A: Our flight nannies are well-educated in puppy health. They are very conscientious about the location the puppies are taken to. After utilizing the potty area, the puppies are wiped carefully with antibacterial wipes.
Q: I can't meet you at the airport. What should I do?
A: We can arrange for a ride share service to pick up the flight nanny and puppy. This service will be an additional charge.
Q: I want someone to come to me and teach me how to train my puppy. Do you offer that?
A: Yes! The trainer will have a per day fee. Please reach out to discuss this service further.
Q: What will the flight nanny do with my puppy when on the plane? What about when they get off?
A: Per ACA, the puppies must remain in their carriers while in the plane. When we deboard, puppies are taken out to stretch their legs in a quiet area of the ariport, as well as given access to an area for a bathroom break.
Q: Do you provide any equipment when the puppy is delivered?
A: Your puppy will be delivered with some equipment if they've participated in a board and train program (the carrier will not be included, so please bring a seatbelt or crate for your puppy upon arrival). If we are solely providing flight nanny services, they will not have any equipment.
