What determines the cost of American Eskimo shipping

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

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 Eskimo, 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 Eskimo 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 Eskimo Dog: The Snowy-White Companions

Origins and Temperament

The American Eskimo Dog, affectionately known as the "Eskie," is a breed renowned for its striking white coat and keen intelligence. Hailing from the Nordic countries as a variant of the German Spitz, these dogs were brought to the United States by German immigrants and later renamed due to the political climate of the time. Eskies are typically alert, friendly, and exceedingly loyal, making them excellent watchdogs and family pets. Due to their vigilant nature, they may experience anxiety in unfamiliar situations, so when traveling, a calm and understanding approach is paramount.

Size and Physical Needs

Ranging from the toy to the standard size, American Eskimo Dogs require ample exercise to accommodate their spirited demeanor. Their lush double coat gives them a distinctive appearance but also necessitates a cool environment to prevent overheating during transport. Special accommodations, such as a well-ventilated carrier and frequent stops for stretching, are essential for their physical and mental well-being on the road.

Common Health Considerations

Although generally healthy, American Eskimo Dogs can be prone to certain conditions such as hip dysplasia and progressive retinal atrophy. Secure health documentation, such as a recent health certificate and proof of vaccinations prior to travel, can streamline the process and ensure preventative measures are in place for a safe and serene journey.

How to prepare your American Eskimo 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

To ensure your Eskie's smooth transport, compile all up-to-date health and vaccination records. These documents should include records of Rabies, DHPP, Bordetella, and negative heartworm tests, kept within easy reach to present when necessary.

Identification and Tracking

Even during planned travel, ID tags and microchips are indispensable for your pet's safety. Consider equipping your American Eskimo Dog with a secure collar featuring ID tags, a registered microchip, and optionally a real-time GPS tracker to keep them secure throughout your travels.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To soothe your Eskie during transit, pack a favorite blanket, toy, or an article of clothing with your scent. These items can create a sense of home and serenity in a moving environment, aiding greatly in reducing stress.

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 Eskimo Dogs

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Acquaint your American Eskimo Dog with their carrier weeks in advance to establish a safety zone. During travel, toys or anxiety vests can provide comfort, while practices such as playing soft music or using natural calming sprays can also make the journey smoother for sensitive Eskies.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

A structured schedule for rest stops will cater to your dog's high energy levels and need for regular bathroom breaks. Aim for a stop every 2-3 hours to allow your Eskie to stretch legs, play, and relieve themselves away from the stressful confines of a vehicle.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Eskies are adapted to colder environments, so ensuring the travel area is cool and well-ventilated is critical. Frequent water breaks are also vital to prevent dehydration and maintain comfort throughout the trip.

Post Transportation Care for your American Eskimo

Adjustment to New Surroundings

After reaching your destination, allow your American Eskimo Dog time to explore and become accustomed to their new environment at their own pace. Maintaining similar feeding and walking schedules can aid in making this transition as seamless as possible.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Keep a watchful eye on your dog's behavior and appetite following transport. Signs of stress or discomfort might suggest a need for veterinary assistance. Allow for rest and provide a peaceful recovery space.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establish routine to grant your Eskie the stability they thrive upon. Consistent walks, playtimes, and mealtimes reassert normalcy and provide ongoing care that is crucial for their overall well-being in their new home.
