What determines the cost of Belgian Malinois shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Belgian Malinois.

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.

rating
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.

rating
Pet size

Smaller pets are easier – and less expensive – to transport. If you’re flying your Belgian Malinois, 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.

rating
Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Belgian Malinois 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.

Belgian Malinois: The Versatile Companions

Origins and Temperament

Born from diligent lineage, the Belgian Malinois is a breed heralded for its work ethic and intelligence. Originally bred as a herding dog in Belgium, its versatile skills have been honed for activities like search and rescue, police work, and military roles. These dogs are highly trainable but require mental stimulation and purpose. Their alertness and sensitivity to changes in their environment can influence their travel needs, necessitating carriers that understand the unique anxieties that can accompany such an intuitive breed.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically, Belgian Malinois range from 22 to 26 inches in height and weigh around 40 to 80 pounds. Their athletic build and boundless energy command regular exercise and mental engagement. When transporting Malinois, it is vital to adapt their space for comfort and security, providing enough room for movement. Accommodations for regular physical activity should be made during longer transit periods to fulfill their exercise requirements.

Common Health Considerations

Although generally robust, the breed can be predisposed to hip dysplasia, eye problems, and epilepsy. Essential health documentation, such as proof of vaccination and a recent vet health certificate, are required for travel to guarantee that all health considerations are met preemptively. Continuous reassurance and monitoring can help mitigate the risk of stress-related health complications en route.

How to prepare your Belgian Malinois 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

Documentation of up-to-date vaccines and a comprehensive health check should accompany the dog at all times. This includes records for rabies, Bordetella, and distemper vaccinations along with a clean bill of health from a vet.

Identification and Tracking

A Belgian Malinois should be microchipped and wear a collar with ID tags displaying current contact information. If possible, equip your canine with a GPS tracker to ensure they remain traceable if unexpected separations occur during travel.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Packing a favorite blanket, toy, or an article of clothing with a familiar scent can significantly ease the stress of transit for a Malinois. These familiar items provide a sense of security and home comfort throughout the journey.

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 Belgian Malinois

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Power through travel-anxiety by packing their cherished toy or utilizing anxiety vests to offer a soothing pressure. Practice calming techniques prior to transport, like deep touch pressure or playing soothing music, which can help alleviate stress.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

For a breed as active as the Malinois, schedule breaks approximately every 2-3 hours during long trips to accommodate their need for exercise and bathroom needs. These breaks should include ample time for stretching, running, and mental stimulation.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain a comfortable and consistent temperature within the vehicle, and provide frequent water breaks to ensure hydration. Belgian Malinois can be sensitive to extreme temperatures, hence regulating the vehicle's climate is key to a successful transport.

Post Transportation Care for your Belgian Malinois

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Introduce your Belgian Malinois to their new settings gradually. Allow them to explore at their own pace and provide plenty of reassurance and affection as they adjust to unfamiliar sights, sounds, and smells.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Keep an observant eye on your dog post-transportation, looking out for signs of stress or illness. Consult a veterinarian if there are any concerns, as early detection is crucial for prompt care.

Continuing Care and Routine

Establishing a consistent routine of exercise, feeding, and rest is fundamental for a Malinois once in their new home. This regularity can aid in their emotional stability and overall well-being, ensuring their transition is as smooth as possible.
