What determines the cost of Belgian Sheepdog shipping

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

Mode of transportation

ratingAir travel

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 Sheepdog, 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 Sheepdog 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 Sheepdog: The Vigilant Companions

Origins and Temperament

Hailing from Belgium, the Belgian Sheepdog is a breed with a rich heritage as a working dog, prized for its intelligence and gentle disposition. Originally bred for herding, these dogs are known for their alertness, loyalty, and protective nature—their keen senses make them exemplary watchdogs. When considering travel arrangements for a Belgian Sheepdog, these traits necessitate a transporter who can provide a reassuring presence and understand the breed's sensitivity to new environments and stimuli.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically weighing between 45-75 pounds and standing up to 26 inches at the shoulder, the Belgian Sheepdog requires ample space to feel comfortable. Being highly energetic, they need regular exercise, making spacious transport with opportunities for activity essential. When arranging their travel, accommodations should cater to their size and physicality, such as secure, roomy crates, and plenty of playtime stops.

Common Health Considerations

Belgian Sheepdogs are generally robust, but they are predisposed to certain conditions such as hip dysplasia and epilepsy. Required health documentation for transit should include a recent veterinary certificate and records of any medical conditions. Pre-travel checkups and a discussion about potential medications or travel aids can ensure a safe and comfortable journey.

How to prepare your Belgian Sheepdog 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

Prior to departure, ensure all health and vaccination records are up to date and on hand. These documents are critical for interstate travel and can be requested at any time. Always make copies and keep digital versions accessible throughout your Belgian Sheepdog's journey.

Identification and Tracking

It's paramount to have proper identification, including an updated tag on their collar and a registered microchip. For added security, consider a GPS tracker that allows real-time monitoring of your Belgian Sheepdog during transit.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To support your dog's emotional well-being, include objects from home that carry familiar scents, such as blankets or toys. These items can be especially comforting in a moving vehicle, providing a sense of stability amidst the change.

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 Sheepdog

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Travel can be stressful for these sensitive dogs. Prepare by including their favorite toys and consider an anxiety-reducing vest if they are prone to distress. Familiarity with calming techniques, like gentle reassurance or playing soothing music, can also ease the travel experience.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular stops—every 3-4 hours—to allow your Belgian Sheepdog to stretch, exercise, and relieve themselves. Maintaining their typical exercise regimen can mitigate restlessness and aid in their overall comportment during transport.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Keep the vehicle's temperature moderate and provide constant access to fresh water. Belgian Sheepdogs are equipped with thick coats and may require air conditioning in warmer climates to maintain a comfortable temperature.

Post Transportation Care for your Belgian Sheepdog

Adjustment to New Surroundings

After traveling, allow your Belgian Sheepdog to explore their new environment at their own pace. Their observant nature may make them cautious initially, so provide ample reassurance and positive reinforcement to facilitate adaptation.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Post-travel, keep a close watch for any signs of discomfort or illness, particularly if your dog has a pre-existing health condition. If any concerns arise or symptoms persist, consult with a veterinarian without delay.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reinstate your Belgian Sheepdog's routine as soon as possible, including feeding, walking, and play schedules, to lend a sense of normalcy and security. Reliable continuity is key to settling into their new life with ease.
