Leash and collar – Your Frenchie puppy has just traveled a long distance and may not have gone potty in quite a while. Having a leash and collar will allow you to safely let your puppy down so that he/she can relieve him or herself.
Dog food and water – We always send treats and a little food (PawTree’s salmon, sweet potato, and pea all-life-stages chow) with our puppy chaperones in case the puppy acts hungry; and they know to give them plenty of water. Most of the time our chaperones report that the puppies sleep the entire time on the plane. While this is great for our chaperones, it sometimes makes for a very hungry and thirsty puppy when he/she is delivered to you. Depending on the length of the flight or flights (if there are one or more connections), he or she may have gone hours without eating. If you live close to the airport, it is probably better to wait until you get home to feed your puppy. However, if you have a longer drive, you should definitely offer food and water as soon as practical. Don’t be alarmed if your puppy does not seem too interested in food initially – he/she has had a long day and is seeing new faces and a new environment, and some puppies may need a little more time to adjust.
