What determines the cost of American Staffordshire Terrier shipping

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

Mode of transportation

Time ⏱⏱

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 Staffordshire Terrier, 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 Staffordshire Terrier 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 Staffordshire Terrier: The Loyal and Resilient Companions

Origins and Temperament

The American Staffordshire Terrier, affectionately known as the Amstaff, is a breed with a rich heritage. Tracing back to the 19th century in England, they were originally bred for bull-baiting and later became farm dogs and family protectors. Known for their courage, intelligence, and affectionate nature, Amstaffs often form strong bonds with their families. These devoted characteristics mean they may find travel stressful without their trusted human by their side. Finding a travel solution that acknowledges their loyalty and companionship is crucial.

Size and Physical Needs

American Staffordshire Terriers are considered medium-sized dogs, with males typically weighing between 55-70 pounds and females 40-55 pounds. They possess great strength and agility, accompanied by a stocky build. Amstaffs require consistent exercise to remain physically and mentally healthy. During transport, they'll need ample space to stand, turn, and lay down comfortably. Because of their muscular frame and high energy levels, scheduling regular stops for exercise is vital.

Common Health Considerations

Although generally robust, the Amstaff breed can be prone to certain genetic conditions such as hip dysplasia, heart diseases, and skin allergies. Ensuring that your pet is in optimal health before embarking on a journey is of utmost importance. Travelers will need to provide health certificates and proof of vaccinations, tailored to specific state regulations and company policies. Taking precautionary measures such as a pre-trip veterinary visit can help prevent any discomfort during their transportation.

How to prepare your American Staffordshire Terrier 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

Before transportation, confirm that your Amstaff is up-to-date on all vaccinations, particularly rabies, and have all relevant health records at hand. This documentation is not only sometimes legally required but critical in the unlikely event that your pet needs veterinary assistance en route.

Identification and Tracking

Secure identification is a must. Ensure your Amstaff has a sturdy collar with an ID tag containing your contact information. Consider microchipping for permanent identification, and think about utilizing GPS collars for real-time tracking during travel.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Amstaffs, like all dogs, find comfort in familiarity. Include their favorite toys, a piece of your clothing, and a familiar blanket within their travel crate to provide reassurance and reduce anxiety.

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 Staffordshire Terrier

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To minimize travel stress, accustom your Amstaff to their carrier before the journey begins. Familiarity breeds comfort. Introduce anxiety-reducing items like a favorite toy, a cozy bed, or a wearable anxiety vest to provide an additional sense of security.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Amstaffs have considerable stamina and energy; thus, planning for regular stops every 2-3 hours for exercise and bathroom breaks is essential. These breaks will help manage their energy levels and promote comfort during travel.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Being sensitive to extreme temperatures, it's critical to maintain a comfortable and well-ventilated travel environment for your Amstaff. Ensure they have continual access to fresh, clean water to avoid dehydration, especially during warmer months.

Post Transportation Care for your American Staffordshire Terrier

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Upon arrival, give your Amstaff time to explore their new environment at their own pace. Surround them with familiar items from home to help ease their transition and provide a sense of security.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After travel, closely observe your pet for any signs of stress or illness. Changes in appetite, behavior, or energy levels can indicate discomfort, and if you're concerned, don't hesitate to contact a veterinarian.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reestablishing a regular routine is critically important for your Amstaff’s sense of stability. Consistent feeding times, exercise schedules, and affection will help your pet settle into their new home while maintaining the bond they share with you.
