I would say what's considered ethical is 6 weeks. I may have some that will be nearly that, but a bit under, I have to decide if I would bring them or not.

Really overall condition is the most important thing....as long as they are over 4 weeks (thus FULLY weaned) and are a good size in excellent condition, they should be fine. Bubs that are on the smaller/weaker side and might succumb to illness due to stress related immune suppression should probably not do the travelling, even if they are 5-6 weeks.

I'm not familiar with the rules so dont quote me on this but, dont QT guidelines state no new litters? When does QT start?

I believe u can't bring them into your home . But don't quote me. Also Qt starts 3 weeks before the show. I think that was last year.

I believe the QT rule is no new litters in the QT period.
