What determines the cost of Black Russian Terrier shipping

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

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 Black Russian 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 Black Russian 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.

Black Russian Terrier: The Robust Companions

Origins and Temperament

Hailing from Russia, the Black Russian Terrier was originally bred as a working dog—capable of the most strenuous tasks with a robust constitution. These dogs are known for their courage, confidence, and intelligence, making them excellent protectors and family companions. Given their strong-willed nature, Black Russian Terriers thrive on consistent leadership and clear communication. When traveling, their commanding presence and protective instincts should be taken into account, ensuring they're handled with assertiveness and understanding.

Size and Physical Needs

Black Russian Terriers are large, with males typically standing 27-30 inches at the shoulder and females slightly shorter. They benefit from regular exercise to maintain their muscular physique and mental well-being. Due to their size and activity level, ample space and frequent stops are essential for their comfort during transport. Their thick, coarse coat also requires considerations for temperature control to prevent overheating or undue cold exposure.

Common Health Considerations

While sturdy, the breed can be prone to hip dysplasia, heart issues, and certain eye conditions. Before transport, secure a health certificate and ensure vaccinations are up to date. Take note of any travel-specific preventative measures, such as flea and tick treatments, to avoid complications on the road.

How to prepare your Black Russian 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

Gather a comprehensive veterinary health certificate and proof of vaccinations, particularly rabies. These documents are critical and should be readily available during your Black Russian Terrier's transit.

Identification and Tracking

Ensure your Black Russian Terrier has a sturdy collar with an ID tag including your contact information. Additionally, consider a microchip and GPS tracker for added security during transport, to promptly address any unexpected separations.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Pack items such as a favorite blanket or toy that carries the scent of home. Familiar smells can significantly soothe your pet, helping to relax them during 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 Black Russian Terriers

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Minimize stress with the help of your Black Russian Terrier’s preferred toys or an anxiety vest. Familiarize your pet with the transport carrier or vehicle in advance and employ calming techniques like soft music or spoken reassurance.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Schedule regular stops for exercise and relieve themselves—every 3 to 4 hours is advisable. A well-exercised Black Russian Terrier is more likely to rest calmly during trip intervals.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Keep the vehicle climate-controlled, bearing in mind the breed's dense coat, and ensure continuous access to water to prevent dehydration throughout the transport.

Post Transportation Care for your Black Russian Terrier

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Give your Black Russian Terrier time to explore their new environment at their own pace, offering reassurance as they become acclimated. Maintain familiar routines to support a smooth transition.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your pet for any signs of stress or illness after arrival. If there are any concerning changes in behavior or health, consult a veterinarian promptly.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reinstate regular feeding, exercise, and bonding routines as soon as possible. Consistency will help your Black Russian Terrier understand they are in a secure place, allowing them to settle into their new life with confidence.
