A good buddy just shipped one to Idaho, I believe, not sure of the price but it was convenient, they picked the dog up at his house and dropped it off at the clients house. Works good for us.

I'm assuming Air Shipping?
I ship a number of dogs every year and have never had a problem. Just shipped a 6 month old to Kansas this past Saturday in fact. Just be sure you check all the Airlines Reg's and follow to a T. Figure around $300.00 + the crate/pad. Around $350.00 total, give or take.

I had two puppies shipped from Minnesota to Oregon in january. It cost $250, plus the crate at $40. In the winter, airlines restrict when they will transport dogs. A health certificate is required as well.
