What determines the cost of Boxer shipping

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

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 Boxer, 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 Boxer 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.

Boxer: The Energetic Companions

Origins and Temperament

Originating from Germany, Boxers are known for their boundless energy, intelligence, and playful nature. These medium to large-sized dogs stemmed from a breed called the Bullenbeisser, which were used for hunting. Today, Boxers serve as loyal companions renowned for their protective instincts and loving demeanor towards families. Their temperament can result in high excitement when traveling, so understanding and addressing their behavioral needs during transport is critical.

Size and Physical Needs

Boxers typically weigh between 50-80 pounds and possess a muscular build that requires plenty of exercises. Due to their physicality, they need ample space and regular stops for stretching during transport. Their short noses also mean they're sensitive to extreme temperatures, which should be a key consideration when planning their transportation.

Common Health Considerations

Boxers are prone to certain health issues like heart conditions, hip dysplasia, and brachycephalic syndrome. Ensuring these pets are fit for travel with clear health documentation is vital. Take extra care to avoid stressful situations that could exacerbate underlying health conditions during their journey.

How to prepare your Boxer 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

Before transport, ensure all health and vaccination records are current and accessible. This documentation is essential for proving that your Boxer is travel-ready and maintaining their well-being en route.

Identification and Tracking

Equip your Boxer with updated tags and consider the use of a microchip or GPS device for added security. Identity verification is crucial for safe and reliable transport.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Including a familiar blanket or favorite toy can be immensely comforting for your Boxer. Such personal items carry the scent of home, which can significantly reduce travel stress.

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 Boxer

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Addressing a Boxer's anxiety can involve bringing along a well-loved toy, utilizing an anxiety vest, or practicing calming techniques you've used previously.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Set a schedule for regular exercise and bathroom breaks to align with a Boxer's high energy levels. This routine will support the physical needs and overall comfort of your pet during transit.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain a comfortable temperature, especially due to the Boxer's sensitivity to heat. Remember to provide ample water to ensure your pet stays well-hydrated throughout the journey.

Post Transportation Care for your Boxer

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Give your Boxer time to explore and become acquainted with their new environment. Stay patient as they adapt at their own pace while offering reassurance and comfort.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your pet closely after transportation for any signs of stress or health issues and contact a veterinarian if needed. It's better to err on the side of caution with their health matters.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reestablishing a regular routine is crucial for your Boxer's sense of security and well-being in a new home. Maintaining consistent feeding, exercise, and playtime schedule helps ease the transition.
