What determines the cost of Australian Cattle shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Australian Cattle.

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 Australian Cattle, 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 Australian Cattle 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.

Australian Cattle Dog: The Energetic Companions

Origins and Temperament

Bred in the vast expanses of Australia, the Australian Cattle Dog is a resilient and robust breed renowned for its herding prowess. This breed possesses a natural instinct to herd, accompanied by a sharp intellect and a protective nature. Known for their loyalty and wariness of strangers, they require thoughtful handling during travel to accommodate their potential unease with new faces and environments.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically weighing between 35 to 50 pounds, Australian Cattle Dogs are compact and muscular. Their boundless energy necessitates ample exercise, which must be taken into consideration during transportation. Special accommodations should include a secure space to stretch and release pent-up energy to ensure a comfortable and stress-free journey.

Common Health Considerations

The breed is prone to certain genetic conditions, such as hip dysplasia and progressive retinal atrophy. It's crucial to carry health documentation, including vaccination proof, to tackle any emergencies during transit. Ensure preventive measures, like familiarizing them with the transport environment ahead of time, to mitigate any travel-related risks.

How to prepare your Australian Cattle 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

Up-to-date health records and proof of vaccinations are mandatory. Keep a copy of these documents accessible throughout the journey to ensure swift medical attention if necessary.

Identification and Tracking

A microchip and a collar with an ID tag are best practices for identification. A GPS tracker offers an added level of security, providing real-time location data during transit.
