What determines the cost of Bouvier Des Flandres shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Bouvier Des Flandres.

Mode of transportation

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.

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 Bouvier Des Flandres, 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 Bouvier Des Flandres 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.

Bouvier Des Flandres: The Robust Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Bouvier Des Flandres breed hails from the farm fields of Flanders, where they were expert herders and guardians of livestock. These dogs are known for their strong will, intelligence, and calm demeanor. Given their history of working closely with humans, they display a protective yet amicable attitude. When it comes to travel, their patient and adaptable nature is advantageous, though their size and strength necessitate accommodations that account for their need for space and comfort.

Size and Physical Needs

A sturdy and powerful breed, Bouvier Des Flandres typically weigh between 70 and 110 pounds. They require regular exercise to maintain their physique and mental well-being, so ample space and opportunities for movement are essential during travel. Due to their heavy coats, they can be sensitive to extreme temperatures, so climate control is also an important consideration during transportation.

Common Health Considerations

Among the breed's known health issues are hip dysplasia, eye problems, and heart conditions. Ensuring that your Bouvier Des Flandres has the proper health documentation, including a recent veterinarian checkup certificate, is crucial for travel. To prevent travel-related stress from exacerbating any existing conditions, pre-travel health preparations are key.

How to prepare your Bouvier Des Flandres 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 all vaccinations are up to date, and have copies of health records readily available. Keep an easily accessible folder during transport for added peace of mind in case of emergencies.

Identification and Tracking

Your Bouvier should have a well-fitted collar with ID tags including your contact information. Additionally, a microchip and a possible GPS tracker can offer an extra layer of security for locating your pet if they become separated from their transporter.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To help your Bouvier feel secure, include familiar items like their favorite blanket or a piece of your clothing. Familiar scents can be a powerful calming aid during what can be a stressful time for animals.

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 Bouvier Des Flandres

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Anxiety can be managed with comfort items, such as a favorite toy or an anxiety vest. Implementing calming techniques like soothing music or pheromone sprays may also help keep your Bouvier relaxed.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Regular stops for exercise and bathroom breaks should be part of the travel itinerary. Because Bouviers are an active breed, allow for stretching and a bit of play to help them burn off energy and stay comfortable.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Bouviers need a cool environment, so ensure that the vehicle is well-ventilated and climate-controlled. Keep fresh water available at all times, and monitor your pet for signs of overheating or dehydration.

Post Transportation Care for your Bouvier Des Flandres

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Upon arrival, give your Bouvier time to explore their new surroundings under supervision. Providing them with the same familiar items from their transport can ease the transition and help them feel at home more quickly.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After the journey, watch for any signs of distress or ill health. Consult with a veterinarian if there are persistent issues, as a change in environment, diet, or routine can affect your pet's well-being.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a routine is critical for your Bouvier's sense of security. Continue their regular feeding, exercise, and grooming schedule to help them settle into their new life with ease.
