What determines the cost of Berger Picard shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Berger Picard.

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 Berger Picard, 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 Berger Picard 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.

Berger Picard: The Loyal Companions

Origins and Temperament

Hailing from France, the Berger Picard is a rare and ancient breed known for their steadfast loyalty and intelligence. Originally bred as working dogs for herding livestock, these dogs are energetic, observant, and can be quite assertive. With their alert and sensitive nature, Berger Picards may require special attention to their emotional needs during travel to help mitigate stress and anxiety.

Size and Physical Needs

The Berger Picard typically stands between 21.5 to 25.5 inches tall at the shoulder and can weigh from 50 to 70 pounds, positioning them firmly within the medium to the large size category. They possess a robust build and require ample exercise to maintain their physical well-being. When transporting a Berger Picard, it’s essential to provide space that accommodates their size, allows for movement, and adheres to their high activity level needs for a comfortable journey.

Common Health Considerations

Berger Picards are generally healthy but can be predisposed to certain genetic conditions such as hip dysplasia. When traveling, it is crucial to have their health documentation on hand, including vet check-ups and a certificate of health if required. To ensure a safe trip, prevention strategies such as flea and tick medication and a wellness exam prior to transport can be helpful.

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.

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

Ensure all health and vaccination records for your Berger Picard are up to date and easily accessible during transit. These documents are vital for verifying their health status and are often mandatory when crossing state lines or for emergency situations.

Identification and Tracking

Your Berger Picard should have a secure collar with identification tags that include contact information. Moreover, ensure that they are microchipped and consider using a GPS tracker for added peace of mind during transport.

  • Collars and leashes
  • Waste bags
  • Medication
  • First-aid supplies
