What determines the cost of American Bully shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your American Bully.

Mode of transportation

ratingAir travel

Cost $$$

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.

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.

Pet size

Smaller pets are easier – and less expensive – to transport. If you’re flying your American Bully, 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.

Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your American Bully 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.

American Bully: The Loyal Companions

Origins and Temperament

The American Bully is a relatively new breed, having been developed in the United States in the 1980s and 90s. Stemming from a mix of American Pit Bull Terriers and other bulldog-type breeds, American Bullies are known for their muscular build, courage, and friendly demeanor. Despite their intimidating appearance, they typically exhibit a gentle and affectionate temperament, thriving on close contact with their family. When it comes to travel, their social nature means they require additional attention and reassurance during trips to keep their anxiety levels in check.

Size and Physical Needs

Ranging from the more compact "Pocket" variety to the heavier "XL" category, American Bullies can weigh anywhere from 30 to 120 pounds. Their robust physicality demands daily exercise to maintain a healthy weight and emotional well-being. Transportation services should account for their size and strength, providing secure enclosures and ample space. Due to their short coats, they may need protection against extreme temperatures during transit, ensuring they remain comfortable regardless of the weather outside.

Common Health Considerations

American Bullies can face specific health challenges such as hip dysplasia, heart issues, and allergies. As a responsible transporter, it's imperative to equip yourself with their health history and necessary medication. Carrying up-to-date health documentation, including vaccination proof, is mandatory for interstate travel and in case of emergencies. Ensuring preventive measures, like flea and tick treatments, are up-to-date will add another layer of protection for a safe and healthy journey.

How to prepare your American Bully 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

Secure and digitize all health and vaccination records for your American Bully, as these are essential for crossing state lines and in response to possible health inspections. Keep a physical copy on-hand during transit for immediate reference. This documentation verifies that your pet is fit for travel and has received all necessary vaccinations to protect against illnesses.

Identification and Tracking

An American Bully should have a microchip and wear a collar with identification tags at all times. The microchip provides permanent identification that can't get lost, while the tags offer immediate contact information. For added security, consider a GPS-equipped collar, ensuring trackability throughout the journey.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Pack a favorite blanket, toy, or item of clothing that smells like home to provide emotional support for an American Bully during travel. Familiar scents act as comforting reminders of home, reducing travel anxiety and helping them feel secure.

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 American Bully

Managing Anxiety and Stress

American Bullies can become stressed during travel. Keep their favorite toys and consider an anxiety vest or calming chews if they show signs of distress. Consistent reassurance and the presence of a beloved owner or transporter can greatly mitigate stress levels.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan to stop every few hours to allow your American Bully to stretch their legs and relieve themselves. Regular activity will help them burn off energy and stay comfortable during the drive. Make sure each stop is in a safe, secure area where they can be closely monitored.

Temperature Control and Hydration

As brachycephalic (snub-nosed) dogs, American Bullies are sensitive to temperature extremes. The travel environment should be kept cool, well-ventilated, and never too hot. Regular access to fresh water is crucial to prevent dehydration and overheating.

Post Transportation Care for your American Bully

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Once at their destination, give your American Bully time to explore and adjust at their own pace. Maintain a calm demeanor and provide lots of affection to reassure them they are safe in their new environment.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After reaching your destination, monitor your American Bully's behavior and physical condition closely. Changes in appetite or behavior may require a veterinarian's attention. Ensure your pet resumes their regular diet and water intake to aid in their adjustment.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establish your American Bully's regular routine of feeding, walks, and playtime as soon as possible. Consistency provides comfort and security, helping them to adapt to their new home with ease.
