What determines the cost of Australian Terrier shipping

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

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 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 Australian 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.

Australian Terrier: The Spirited Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Australian Terrier, a breed known for its plucky determination, originated in Australia as a vermin hunter and livestock guardian. Distinguished by their robust will and affectionate nature, these terriers form strong bonds with their owners. This keenly alert and courageous temperament calls for careful consideration in how their travel needs are catered to; their lively disposition may require additional comfort measures to keep them calm during transportation.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically weighing between 15 to 20 pounds with a standing height of 10 to 11 inches, Australian Terriers are small yet sturdy. Their spirited nature means they need plenty of exercise, making it essential to provide time for physical activity during long travels. Special accommodations like a secure crate and ample space for movement are essential to accommodate their physical makeup and high energy levels.

Common Health Considerations

Australian Terriers are generally healthy, but like all breeds, they are prone to certain conditions like diabetes and patellar luxation. Ensuring all health documentation is up to date, including a recent health check before travel, is key. Precautions like flea and tick prevention, along with carrying a pet first aid kit, will contribute to a safer journey for these vigilant companions.

How to prepare your Australian 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

Prepare a current set of health and vaccination records for your Australian Terrier, maintaining accessible copies in both physical and digital formats during transport. This documentation is not only potentially required by law but also provides critical information to caretakers in case of emergency.

Identification and Tracking

Equipping your Australian Terrier with a properly fitted collar, tags with contact information, and a microchip is vital for identification purposes. For an extra layer of security, consider using a GPS tracker to monitor your pet's location in real-time during their travel.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Mitigate travel distress by packing favorite toys or bedding to provide your Australian Terrier with the calming presence of home. Familiar scents play a significant role in keeping your pet at ease amidst the unfamiliarity of transportation.

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 Australian Terrier

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Addressing the travel-induced anxiety in an Australian Terrier can be managed with anxiety vests or calming treats tailored to canines. Familiar objects such as a beloved toy can also serve as a source of comfort throughout the journey.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular stops, approximately every 2-3 hours, to allow your Australian Terrier ample time for exercise and bathroom breaks. This routine will help expend their energy and alleviate potential stress during the trip.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintaining a climate-controlled environment and providing constant access to fresh water is key for the health and comfort of your Australian Terrier during travel, preventing overheating and dehydration.

Post Transportation Care for your Australian Terrier

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Gradually introduce your Australian Terrier to their new surroundings, allowing them time to explore at their own pace to enhance adaptability and comfort. Remaining present and patient during this adjustment phase helps solidify the bond with your pet.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Australian Terrier for any signs of stress or health issues post-travel and consult a veterinarian if any concerns arise. It is crucial to monitor your pet's behavior and physical state closely during the days following transportation.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reinstate a regular feeding, exercise, and sleep routine as soon as possible to provide your Australian Terrier with a sense of stability and continuity in their new home. Consistent care plays an integral role in their overall well-being and acclimation post-travel.
