You bet! When you connect with a breeder or business within the California Puppies network, you’ll be able to arrange for in-person pickup or transportation of your pooch to any major American airport. So regardless of where your chosen breeder calls home, your dream dog is always within reach!
California Puppies receives applications constantly from breeders wishing to join our network, yet less than 10% of these applications are approved. We have strict requirements based on experience, breeding facilities, animal care and more—take a peek at our Breeder Pledge for more information if you're looking for a puppy for sale near me.
Price can vary a lot between different breeds—and even within breeds! Coat color, pedigree, size...these can all play a role in your pup’s final price. Luckily, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to options at California Puppies. Browse our network’s available pups and get ready to meet the dog of your dreams!
We believe California Puppies offers families a much safer alternative to your traditional online dog search. That’s because we independently evaluate potential breeders and businesses based on ethics and customer service. Compare that with Google, where nearly anyone could show up as long as they have the advertising money to spend.
Some breeds are so popular that traditional breeders just aren’t able to keep up with demand. Puppy mills are unethical operations that step in to fill that demand by “factory farming” dogs. At mills, dogs are treated as dollar signs instead of living animals—and it shows. Mill dogs often suffer from higher rates of dangerous and sometimes deadly genetic diseases.
Just about any breed! We work with breeders and companies across the nation who specialize in all sorts of different breeds, from traditional favorites like the Labrador Retriever and German Shepherd to popular hybrid breeds like the Pomsky and Goldendoodle.

Finding your dream dog with California Puppies is a cinch. All you need to do is select a breed, check out available puppies, and get connected with the breeders and businesses who are ready to make your dream dog a reality. Next, you’ll be able to arrange pickup or transportation. Finally, sit back, relax, and enjoy life with your new best friend.
The dog breeding industry is poorly regulated, which is one of the reasons we decided to build California Puppies. Many people know someone who has been taken advantage of by a breeder or pet store who misrepresents the breed, pedigree or health of their dogs. We’re here to create an extra layer of peace of mind—you won’t find any puppy mills here.
