What determines the cost of Afghan Hound shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Afghan Hound.

Time ⏱⏱⏱

Ground and air travel have different associated costs. Flying is typically the fastest option, but also the most expensive and taxing on your pet.

rating
Travel distance

The further you need to transport your pet, the more it'll cost. If you're using ground transportation, you'll have to factor in fuel costs, lodging, meals on the road and wear-and-tear on your vehicle. These costs are applicable whether you drive the pet yourself or you hire a transporter through CitizenShipper. Airlines charge more for longer plane rides as well. This is due to the cost of fuel and the need compensate pilots and flight attendants.

rating
Pet size

Smaller pets are easier – and less expensive – to transport. If you’re flying your Afghan Hound, they’ll need to travel in the cargo hold if they’re over 20 pounds. You’ll also need to buy a USDA-approved crate, which can cost around $200. With ground transport, it’s easier for drivers to accommodate small pets.

rating
Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Afghan Hound is ensuring they’re healthy enough to travel. Most species require a vet-issued health certificate to cross state lines. This will cost $50 to $300. You’ll likely need to purchase some equipment too – such as a crate and travel supplies.

Afghan Hound: The Aristocratic Companions

Origins and Temperament

Afghan Hounds hold an air of regal beauty, with roots tracing back to the mountains of Afghanistan where they were bred for hunting. They are renowned for their independence, dignity, and aloofness, but are also affectionate with their chosen humans. This breed possesses a calm demeanor yet quirky personality, which can translate into unique travel considerations — ensuring a journey that respects their need for space while also providing the comfort and reassurance they crave.

Size and Physical Needs

Standing at about 24 to 29 inches tall and weighing 50 to 60 pounds, Afghan Hounds are a sight to behold with their flowing coats and slender builds. Their stature requires ample room for comfort during transport. As creatures of speed and agility, they require regular exercise. When traveling, accommodations should be made for their physical needs, such as space for stretching out and opportunities for physical activity to keep them at ease.

Common Health Considerations

The elegant Afghan Hound is susceptible to certain health problems, like hip dysplasia and cataracts. To ensure a safe journey, thorough health documentation and recent vet checks should be in place. It's crucial to carry the necessary health certificates, and to implement preventive measures such as avoiding extreme temperatures and providing a stress-free environment during transit.

How to prepare your Afghan Hound for transport

At CitizenShipper, we pride ourselves on making pet transportation a breeze. However, there are things you can do ahead of time to make your best friend’s trip safer and more comfortable.

Talk to your veterinarian

Your pet’s safety is number one – that’s why checking in with your vet before finalizing any travel plans is essential.

Can’t make it to the vet’s office in time? Conveniently video chat with a qualified veterinarian at FirstVet – one of our amazing partners.

Here are the questions you’ll want to ask your vet:

  • Is my pet healthy enough for transport?
  • Is my pet up to date on their vaccines?
  • Is my pet’s microchip still in place and scannable?

Health and Vaccination Records

Verify that all health and vaccination records are up-to-date for your Afghan Hound and keep a copy easily accessible during transport. This includes proof of rabies vaccination, which is vital for interstate travel.

Identification and Tracking

Afghan Hounds should always travel with secure identification. A sturdy collar with tags, a registered microchip, and if available, a GPS tracker, are the best means to ensure the safety and security of your pet during transit.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To provide solace to your Afghan Hound, include their favorite blanket or toy, and even an item of clothing carrying your scent. These familiarities can be immensely comforting, particularly in a moving environment.

Essential pet transport travel supplies include:

  • Food, bowls and fresh water
  • Collars and leashes
  • Waste bags
  • Medication
  • First-aid supplies
  • Any travel documents
  • A secure, USDA-approved travel crate

Traveling to a new place is exciting but stressful for your pet. Pack their favorite toys, a bed or a comfy blanket to help them enjoy their journey. Familiar items remind them of home and will soothe their anxiety.

Tailored Travel Tips for Afghan Hound

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Afghan Hounds may experience anxiety during travel. Packing a cherished toy, using an anxiety vest, or practicing calming techniques prior to departure can help alleviate stress. Preparation and familiarity are key to a calm experience.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Afghan Hounds require routine to maintain their composure. Plan for regular stops every two to three hours to allow for exercise and bathroom breaks in a safe, enclosed space, which is important to avoid the risk of escape.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain a stable, cool temperature for your Afghan Hound and ensure constant access to fresh water. Their long coats make them more sensitive to heat, so careful climate control is imperative.

Post Transportation Care for your Afghan Hound

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Once at the destination, provide a quiet space for your Afghan Hound to explore and become accustomed to their new surroundings. Keeping items of familiar scent around them can ease the transition and provide comfort.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After travel, keep a close eye on your Afghan Hound's behavior and health. Any signs of distress or discomfort should be addressed by consulting with a veterinarian promptly.

Continuing Care and Routine

Afghan Hounds thrive on routine. Re-establishing a consistent schedule for feeding, walking, and playtime will help your pet adjust and maintain their well-being in their new home.
