What determines the cost of Border Terrier shipping

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

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 Border 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 Border 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.

Border Terrier: The [Adaptable] Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Border Terrier, a breed hailing from the border country between England and Scotland, was originally bred to hunt foxes and control vermin. This background has endowed them with a determined and hardy temperament. Despite their bold natures, they are known to be affectionate, trainable, and eager to please, making them excellent companions. Their travel needs may include staying mentally stimulated and physically active. Because of their strong prey drive, it's imperative to ensure that a Border Terrier remains secure and cannot chase after wildlife during stops.

Size and Physical Needs

Border Terriers are small, agile dogs, typically weighing between 11.5 to 15.5 pounds. While modest in size, they possess a robust constitution and require regular exercise to maintain their fitness. During transportation, it's important to provide a safe, comfortable space where they won’t feel cramped, along with opportunities for regular physical activity to satisfy their zest for life.

Common Health Considerations

Border Terriers are generally healthy, but like all breeds, they're prone to certain health conditions such as hip dysplasia, heart defects, and seizures. It's crucial to have up-to-date health documentation during travel to handle any emergencies that may arise. Preventative measures, including familiarity with their medical history and any medications they require, are key for a safe trip.

How to prepare your Border 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

Ensure your Border Terrier’s vaccinations are current, and carry a copy of their health records, including information about any ongoing treatments or conditions. These documents are vital for interstate travel and in case of a vet visit while en route.

Identification and Tracking

Border Terriers should wear a collar with an ID tag showing the owner’s contact information. Microchipping and registering the chip with a national database offer additional security. For extra peace of mind, consider equipping your pet with a GPS tracker.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Bring your Border Terrier's favorite toys, a blanket, or an item of your clothing. Familiar scents can be a great comfort to pets during transport and help keep their stress levels low.

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 Border Terrier

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Combat travel-induced stress by bringing along your Border Terrier's favorite toys and considering an anxiety vest if they are used to wearing one. Also, prepare a playlist of calming music or practice some gentle massage techniques that have proven effective in the past.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Border Terriers should have the opportunity to stretch their legs and relieve themselves every few hours. A structured schedule will help maintain their comfort and manage their energy levels throughout the trip.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Ensure the travel environment is well-ventilated and maintains a consistent temperature, as fluctuations can be stressful and uncomfortable for pets. Provide access to fresh water at all times, and opt for travel during cooler parts of the day in hot climates.

Post Transportation Care for your Border Terrier

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Border Terriers are adaptable by nature, but acclimating to a new environment can still be stressful. Maintain familiar routines as much as possible and introduce new sights and sounds gradually to avoid overwhelming your pet.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Keep an eye on your Border Terrier for any signs of stress or illness following the trip. Check for any changes in behavior or appetite, and consult a veterinarian if you notice anything concerning.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establish your Border Terrier's routine, including meal times, walks, and play sessions, as soon as possible. Consistent routines can help your pet feel secure and settle in more quickly to their new environment.
