What determines the cost of Anatolian Shepherd shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Anatolian Shepherd.

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 Anatolian Shepherd, 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 Anatolian Shepherd 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.

Anatolian Shepherd Dog: The Vigilant Companions

Origins and Temperament

Steeped in history, the Anatolian Shepherd Dog has been a guardian of livestock and a noble companion for millennia. Originating from the rugged landscapes of Turkey, these vigilant dogs are known for their protective nature and strong territorial instincts. Their temperament is calm and watchful, but also independently-minded and intelligent. These traits mean their travel needs may encompass a secure environment that respects their space and need for stability.

Size and Physical Needs

Anatolian Shepherds are large and powerful dogs, typically ranging from 100 to 150 pounds. They have impressive endurance and therefore require considerable exercise to remain healthy. During transport, they need plenty of room to stretch and rest comfortably. Accommodations should be made for their size, including spacious crates and ample time for leg-stretching during stops.

Common Health Considerations

This breed is prone to certain health conditions such as hip dysplasia and gastric torsion. Before traveling, secure a health certificate from a veterinarian and keep a copy on-hand. Ensure all medications and supplements are packed, and be proactive with preventative measures against stress-induced health problems.

How to prepare your Anatolian Shepherd 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

Have an up-to-date health record, including a vaccination certificate, especially for Rabies, DHPP, Bordetella, and Leptospirosis. Maintain quick access to these documents throughout your dog's transit.

Identification and Tracking

Ensure your Anatolian Shepherd Dog is microchipped, and the registration information is current. Attach an ID tag with your contact details to their collar and consider a fitted GPS tracker for real-time location updates during your dog's journey.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Pack familiar items such as blankets, toys, and a piece of your clothing. These serve as comforters and help to reduce stress by providing a sense of familiarity.

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 Anatolian Shepherd Dog

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Consider bringing their favorite toys or a specially-designed anxiety vest. Practice calming techniques beforehand to determine what best soothes your dog.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Schedule regular stops for walks to manage the Anatolian's exercise needs. Exercise is crucial not only for health reasons but also to alleviate travel-related stress and discomfort.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain vehicle temperatures at a comfortable level, as Anatolians have a thick double coat that can cause them to overheat. Always provide access to fresh water to keep them well-hydrated during transit.

Post Transportation Care for your Anatolian Shepherd

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Give your Anatolian Shepherd time and patience to explore and adjust to new settings. Keep a consistent routine as much as possible to aid in their acclimation.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your dog for any signs of post-travel discomfort or anxiety. Consult with a veterinarian if your Anatolian Shepherd exhibits prolonged stress or any health issues after arrival.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a regular schedule of feeding, exercise, and rest will help your Anatolian Shepherd settle in. Consistency affirms security, easing the transition to their new home.
