I'm on with her now. PM me if you want her text. Either FB or text are best to get hold of her for scheduling.

Can anyone who has used this service tell me how it compares cost-wise to shipping on an airline?
Thanks in advance!

I have used both. I think each has their place, depending on the circumstances. I have shipped puppies out of DFW to all over the country, and have received a puppy from Alaska. No problems.
I have used Katie Becker and Move the Dog 3 times and give them the highest recommendation.

To move my pup from IN to eastern PA cost me $440 (I think) to fly it would have been around the $375 mark.
Taking also into consideration that the only near by airport to fly into is Philly (big, crappy, scary city that's not very close)
and it was the the beginning of Feb so weather was terrible,
and It would have cost me a tank of gas
Traveling with my 1 year old son is always an adventure, like it or not.
The extra money to use Katie was a no-brainer in my case.
We had to juggle around some storms and other dogs but my puppy arrived safe and sound, and I got pictures of her traveling to boot!
There was no dealing with delayed flights, big city road rage, and I could stay in my pajamas all day!
Just kidding about the pajamas...

I questioned about getting a 20lb adult male beagle from VA to MO. Flight qoute was around $350. She was at $675. I ended up not buying him, but just stating the quote I got. I believe she said it was so much ber mile rate. Like .65c per mile.
Airlines... Yes cheaper?? Well my trip included $50 crate...$80 health cert and paying someone $200 to take to airport. So $350 XTRA ON TOP of airfare sooooo cheaper.....well I wasn't that happy with Delta that's for sure. I would advise one to see the WHOLE picture before comparing apples and oranges. And how about the care if the pup.
We had a puppy buyer use Katie to ship there new Chesapeake puppy from here (PA) to there home in (MO)
The experience on this end was just Great! I know Bruce was also very happy and received a very Happy and Healthy Puppy.
I'll give them the highest recommendation as well.
I'm not sure of the cost. Cant help you there.
