Our puppy was delivered safe and sound. He was handled with care, monitored for food and water intake and came a great distance. We wish only that we had done the tracker at an extra fee so we could feel more up to date on his trip. We would have enjoyed that I think, but that isn’t a reflection on the driver. If we shipped again we would choose to take advantage of that option. It is the best way to keep up to date on the trips progress. It is hard for a driver to keep up with multiple clients shipping at the same time with the progress. Whenever we did reach out we were answered and sent pictures which we appreciated. Overall, our puppy shipped was six months old and had been extremely under socialized and not handled. This shipper provided knowledgeable compassionate care and kept “Waldo” safe through a very long trip that I am positive presented a lot of situations that could have gone very wrong very quickly.

Very professional ! I was advised per the trip how the advancement took place. Reasons for stop, or lay-over, and importantly travel and predicted estimated times of arrival. Todd Sackett and his daughter were warm , kind , and thorough, with complete business savvy. I would recommend Sweet Briar Farms Newfoundland to all who would entertain pet or animal shipment. Thank you, and thank Citizen Shippers ! Preston of Seattle

If I could give more than five stars I would! Excellent communication and service. This was the first time we had received puppies from so far away and I was very nervous about finding someone to drive our puppies from Missouri to California. Todd put us at ease right away, the process was easy and you can tell he really cares about the puppies and their health and safety. Thank you Todd for delivering our puppies healthy and happy. Safe travels!

I ended up cancelling because coronavirus changed travel plans (decided to drive rather than fly) but communication was excellent. I thought Sweet Briar was the best choice (camper, not crated and second person with dog).

I was highly satisfied with the service I received. Todd and his daughter were both very respectful and friendly and made sure that my pet was okay at all times. I’m in the military and he gave me a great deal and he kept me informed on how everything was going. I really appreciate his service and I’m so thankful my dog made it home safely?

Todd was great! Affordable, reliable, very knowledgeable with pups. My only feedback is that I wish there were a little more communication on his end during the travel - for a 3 day drive with 2 puppies, I was hoping for more pictures and check-ins, but I’m sure he would accommodate that if you ask him! Would book him again for sure!

I was very skeptical about using a service like this especially since I was not able to talk to the driver other than through this site but I took a chance and booked with Todd. Immediately after I booked he called me and with-in 30 seconds he put my mind at ease. It felt more like an old friend doing me a favor rather than a stranger I was hiring to do a service. Overall it was an excellent experience and one I would do again if the need arose.

Achievements:

25 Shipments Completed 10 Pet Shipments Completed Background Screening Completed CitizenShipper Certified Driver

Drivers who join CitizenShipper are screened for a variety of criminal offenses and driving incidents. We utilize a reputable leader in screening called Single Source Services to perform our criminal background screening which includes national, county level and sex offender databases. The background screening we utilize is called the 'Discovery National'.

What we look for with the background screening:

  • checkNo felonies in the past five years
  • checkNo felonies in the last ten years involving theft, assault or violent crime
  • checkNo DUI within the last five years
  • checkNo patterns of misdemeanors in the past ten years relating to DUI's, theft, assault, or violent crimes.
  • checkNo outstanding warrants for arrest
  • checkDoes not show up in national sex offender registry

The background screening includes a residence trace and returns all names and addresses associated with a social security number, in addition to checking the alias(es) returned through the database and the sex offender data.

Based on the subject's name(s) and date of birth the data returned from the background screening are records from State Departments of Correction, State Record Repositories, County Courts, and sexual predator/violent offenders' databases from all 50 states, DC, Guam, and Puerto Rico. Although this search has great value, and the volumes and sources of data are increasing almost every day, it is not an FCRA compliant service. The data is not updated after being entered into the database and therefore records could be expunged, sealed, or verdicts could have been appealed.

While we believe that the Discovery National is a good foundational screening tool, it is not an exhaustive statewide search of records, and as such we cannot guarantee 100% effectiveness in screening candidates.
