What determines the cost of Borzoi shipping

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

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 Borzoi, 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 Borzoi 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.

Borzoi: The Aristocratic Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Borzoi, originating from Russia, developed as a breed for aristocracy; assisting in the hunt for wild game owing to their elegance and speed. These sighthounds are characterized by their calm and agreeable temperament, though they can be somewhat aloof towards strangers. When it comes to travel needs, their sensitive nature means they require gentle handling and a quiet space to retreat.

Size and Physical Needs

Borzois are a large breed, with males standing as tall as 33 inches at the shoulder and weighing upwards of 100 pounds. Their long, slim build necessitates ample space during transport. Additionally, daily exercise is crucial to their well-being. In transit, they require regular pit-stops to stretch out, as well as soft bedding to cushion their lean frames and prevent pressure sores.

Common Health Considerations

Borzois are prone to certain health conditions such as bloat, heart issues, and hip dysplasia. To travel safely, guardians should prepare comprehensive health documentation, which includes a recent vet assessment, to facilitate medical assistance if needed. It's also vital to plan for their spacious accommodation due to their size and preventative steps against stress-related illnesses.

How to prepare your Borzoi 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

Essential health and vaccination documentation should be current and available, including records of rabies, distemper, and other core vaccinations. This paperwork is not only important for the well-being of the Borzoi but is also required by law for interstate travel.

Identification and Tracking

A Borzoi should wear tags with contact information, and be microchipped. Travel can be disorienting; thus, a GPS-enabled collar is also advisable for real-time tracking in case they unintentionally slip away.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Bringing a beloved blanket or toy can provide a sense of security. Additionally, items carrying home scents can be invaluable in soothing your Borzoi during a potentially stressful transition.

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 Borzoi

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Familiar objects and the use of an anxiety vest may help manage a Borzoi's stress levels. Consistent reassurance and maintaining a calm demeanor as the owner or handler can also help mitigate anxiety during the journey.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Schedule frequent stops to provide your Borzoi with an opportunity for exercise and to relieve themselves—ideally every 3-4 hours, depending on the individual dog’s needs and habits.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintaining a moderate and consistent vehicle temperature is crucial for Borzoi, as their long coats can predispose them to overheating. Steady access to fresh water will also prevent dehydration throughout the trip.

Post Transportation Care for your Borzoi

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Gradual introduction to their new environment is key for adapting a Borzoi. Allowing them to explore at their own pace and providing a quiet spot they can claim as their own will help in settling down smoothly.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Keep a vigilant eye on your Borzoi for any signs of illness post-travel. If they seem lethargic, disoriented, or refuse to eat or drink, professional veterinary care should be sought without delay.

Continuing Care and Routine

Establish a consistent daily routine to provide your Borzoi with a sense of order and security. Regular walks, feeding schedules, and affection will reinforce their stability and comfort in their new home.
