What determines the cost of Boston Terrier shipping

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

Mode of transportation

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.

rating
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.

rating
Pet size

Smaller pets are easier – and less expensive – to transport. If you’re flying your Boston 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.

rating
Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Boston 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.

Boston Terrier: The Characteristic Companions

Origins and Temperament

Born in the heart of America, the Boston Terrier is a breed with a rich history that dates back to the 19th century. A cross between English Bulldogs and now-extinct English White Terriers, these "American Gentlemen" are known for their distinctive tuxedo-like markings and congenial nature. Boston Terriers are affectionate and sociable, qualities that make them excellent companions but also mean they can be sensitive travelers. Their inherent need for companionship means they require a transport experience that prioritizes comfort and personal touch.

Size and Physical Needs

Boston Terriers are compact, weighing between 10 to 25 pounds, and require moderate exercise to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Due to their short noses or brachycephalic facial structure, they may require a temperature-controlled environment and frequent hydration stops during transport to prevent respiratory distress.

Common Health Considerations

Since Boston Terriers are prone to certain conditions like brachycephalic syndrome, heart murmurs, and joint issues, it's imperative their health records are up-to-date to manage these concerns while traveling. Any necessary health documentation, particularly for air travel, should reflect their current medical status and vaccination history to ensure a worry-free journey.

How to prepare your Boston 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

Essential for transport, ensure that your Boston Terrier's health and vaccination records are accessible during the journey. This preparation is crucial not only for the dog's safety but can also be a requirement for inter-state travel and in case of emergencies.

Identification and Tracking

Properly identifying your Boston Terrier with a microchip that contains up-to-date contact information and a secure collar with ID tags can ensure peace of mind during travel. Additionally, consider a GPS tracker as an extra measure for keeping tabs on your pet's location.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Bringing along a favorite toy or blanket, imbued with the comforting smells of home, can help reduce stress and provide a sense of security to your Boston Terrier during transit.

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 Boston Terrier

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Reduce potential anxiety for your Boston Terrier with familiar items, such as a beloved toy or piece of clothing with your scent. Some pets respond well to anxiety vests or natural calming supplements; however, you should consult your veterinarian before travel. Soft and gentle music might also help soothe nerves during transport.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular stops to let your Boston Terrier stretch their legs and relieve themselves. A good rule of thumb is a break every 4 hours to maintain their comfort and prevent accidents.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Because of their brachycephalic nature, it's critical to maintain a cool and stable environment for your Boston Terrier, avoiding extreme temperatures. Keep fresh water available, and offer frequent opportunities to drink, especially in warm weather.

Post Transportation Care for your Boston Terrier

Adjustment to New Surroundings

To help your Boston Terrier adapt to a new environment, maintain as much continuity as possible from their previous setting. Familiar items and a consistent routine can greatly aid in this transition phase.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Boston Terrier closely for any signs of distress or illness following travel. If they display unusual behavior or symptoms, contact a veterinarian promptly.

Continuing Care and Routine

Establishing a regular routine of walks, meals, and sleep can help your Boston Terrier feel more at ease and secure in their new home, ensuring a seamless transition and continued well-being.
