What determines the cost of Bichon Frise shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Bichon Frise.

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 Bichon Frise, 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 Bichon Frise 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.

Bichon Frise: The Cheerful Companions

Origins and Temperament

Known for their joyous demeanor and plush white coats, the Bichon Frise descends from the Water Spaniel and the Standard Poodle, an ancestry that explains both their intelligence and their love of play. Originally favored by French royalty, these vivacious little dogs are adaptable, friendly, and highly sociable creatures, making them great companions for families and single individuals alike. Their travel needs are particularly unique, as they typically seek the constant comfort and reassurance of a familiar presence, making them slightly more prone to separation anxiety during transport.

Size and Physical Needs

The Bichon Frise is a small breed, typically weighing between 12 and 18 pounds. They boast a hypoallergenic coat that requires regular grooming to prevent matting. Given their compact stature and energy levels, Bichons do not require extensive exercise but do appreciate playtime. During transport, it is essential to provide them with comfortable and well-ventilated carriers that accommodate their size, as well as regular stops for stretching and play.

Common Health Considerations

Bichon Frises are generally healthy but are predisposed to certain conditions such as allergies, bladder issues, and joint ailments. Before transport, ensure that all their health documentation, including a veterinarian's certificate, is up-to-date. It is advisable to consult with your vet about preventative measures, like flea and tick treatments, to ensure your Bichon's well-being on the road.

How to prepare your Bichon Frise 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

A complete set of up-to-date vaccination and health records is vital for transporting your Bichon Frise. This not only ensures compliance with state and interstate travel regulations but also helps in emergencies. Keep these records handy in a waterproof container or digital format during the trip.

Identification and Tracking

Proper identification is crucial. Outfit your Bichon with a well-fitted collar including ID tags with contact information. Additionally, consider a registered microchip and a GPS-enabled collar or device, providing an extra layer of security for tracking your pet, should they become separated from the transporter.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Minimize travel stress by providing your Bichon Frise with comfort items such as their favorite blanket or toy. These familiar scents can be a reassuring presence in a moving environment, and such items should be included in their travel kit.

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 Bichon Frise

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To help ease your Bichon's travel nerves, familiarize them with their carrier pre-trip. On the day, a calming pheromone spray or a favorite toy can provide comfort. If they're prone to severe anxiety, consult your vet about anxiety vests or mild sedatives appropriate for short-term use.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Schedule stops every 2-3 hours for bathroom breaks and to allow your Bichon to stretch their legs. This will also provide an opportunity for exercise, staving off any restlessness and maintaining a semblance of their daily routine.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Bichons are sensitive to temperature changes; hence, the vehicle's climate should be kept moderate. Consistent access to fresh water will prevent dehydration, so provide a spill-proof water bowl and monitor intake.

Post Transportation Care for your Bichon Frise

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Once at your destination, allow your Bichon Frise to explore their new environment at their own pace. Maintain a calm demeanor to transmit a sense of security and gradually introduce them to new spaces and routines.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Bichon for any signs of stress or illness after the trip. Look out for changes in appetite, behavior, or bowel movements. Contact your vet if anything seems amiss.

Continuing Care and Routine

Routines are comforting to Bichons, so try to quickly re-establish feeding, walking, and playtime schedules. This predictability can help them settle in more easily, allowing their charming and cheerful disposition to shine through in their new home.
