What determines the cost of Boerboel shipping

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

Mode of transportation

ratingGround travel

Time ⏱⏱

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 Boerboel, 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 Boerboel 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.

Boerboel: The Majestic Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Boerboel is a powerful and imposing breed with roots stemming from South Africa. These dogs were bred as protectors, combining strength with a keen sense of loyalty to their families. Their temperament leans towards being calm yet assertive, requiring a handler who can confidently establish themselves as the pack leader. While traveling, their protective nature means they may be wary of strangers; therefore, a Boerboel necessitates a travel plan that considers their need for security and familiar companionship.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically tipping the scales between 110-200 pounds, Boerboels are undeniably a large breed. Their size and muscular build entail a substantial amount of space for comfort during transportation. Exercise is integral to their well-being, so a Boerboel requires enough room to stretch and move around. Ensuring they have a well-ventilated space is crucial to prevent overheating and stress during transit given their dense, muscular physique.

Common Health Considerations

Boerboels, like many large breeds, are prone to hip and elbow dysplasia. Ensuring they have a smooth and stable journey is essential to avoid discomfort or injury. Health certification and documentation of up-to-date vaccinations are requisite for travel. Carriers should be informed of any pre-existing conditions and a Boerboel should be assessed by a vet prior to travel, to identify any potential concerns and enable preventative measures for a safe trip.

How to prepare your Boerboel 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

Current health and vaccination records are non-negotiable when transporting a Boerboel. These records should be easily accessible to provide proof of health status when needed. This not only ensures compliance with various travel regulations but also aids in swift veterinary assistance if required during the journey.

Identification and Tracking

Equipping a Boerboel with proper identification is a crucial aspect of pet transportation. Tags with contact information are a must, and the use of microchips and GPS trackers offers an additional layer of security to locate a Boerboel swiftly should they become separated from their transporter.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To abate the stress of travel, incorporating familiar comforts such as a favorite blanket or a well-loved toy can work wonders for a Boerboel's state of mind. The presence of familiar scents serves as an anchor, reassuring them amidst the changing environments.

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 Boerboel

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Minimizing a Boerboel's anxiety is pivotal. Comfort items previously mentioned, along with items such as anxiety vests, can render the travel experience less daunting. Introducing these items prior to travel can allow the dog to associate them with positive experiences.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Due to their size and activity level, Boerboels benefit from a travel schedule that includes regular stops for exercise and bathroom breaks. This not only aids in their physical comfort but also helps mitigate stress, ensuring a more tranquil journey.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintaining an optimal temperature is particularly important for a heavily muscled breed like the Boerboel. Cooler environments are ideal, with frequent access to fresh water to prevent dehydration, especially in warm climates or during long hauls.

Post Transportation Care for your Boerboel

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Upon arrival, allow a Boerboel to explore its new environment at its own pace, providing a sense of control and confidence. Keep familiar items close to provide reassurance as they settle in.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Monitor your Boerboel for any signs of stress or illness after transportation. Changes in behavior or appetite may warrant a visit to the veterinarian to rule out any travel-related health issues.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a regular routine is essential for a Boerboel's sense of security. Maintaining consistent feeding times, walks, and playtimes provides structure, aiding in a smooth transition to their new home.
