What determines the cost of Boykin Spaniel shipping

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

rating
Mode of transportation

ratingGround travel

Cost $$$

Time ⏱⏱

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 Boykin Spaniel, 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 Boykin Spaniel 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.

Boykin Spaniel: The Family-Oriented Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Boykin Spaniel, with its roots in the swamplands of South Carolina, serves as the state dog and a hunter's best friend. These spaniels are wired for friendliness, showing tenacity in the field and affection at home. Their personable demeanor means they may find travel less stressful with the reassurance of human companionship. Because they are easily trained and eager to please, they often adapt to changes well but require that emotional connection.

Size and Physical Needs

A full-grown Boykin Spaniel ranges from 25 to 40 pounds, with a solid, muscular build. Regular exercise is part of their daily regimen, so during transport, ample space for movement and stretch breaks is non-negotiable. With a water-repellent coat and webbed feet, they won't shy away from a splash, but transporters should keep this in mind for potential messiness in transit.

Common Health Considerations

Boykin Spaniels, known to be hearty dogs, have a predisposition to conditions like hip dysplasia, eye problems, and heart disease. Up-to-date health documentation is crucial for travel and should be obtained before a trip to address any medical concerns with the transporter.

How to prepare your Boykin Spaniel 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

Proof of rabies vaccination and a complete health record are standard for Boykin Spaniel transport. This information will assist your chosen transporter in maintaining your pet's health regimen and provide a baseline should any health issues arise in transit.

Identification and Tracking

A collar with an ID tag bearing your contact information and a microchip registered to you ensures your Boykin Spaniel's safe recovery in case of an unforeseen separation. GPS-enabled collars offer an additional tracking layer for extra peace of mind.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Familiar scents are a Boykin Spaniel's passport to comfort. A favorite blanket or toy can be the difference between anxiety and relaxation. Pack items that smell like home to create a soothing environment for your canine companion.

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 Boykin Spaniel

Managing Anxiety and Stress

The Boykin Spaniel's robust but friendly nature doesn't exempt them from travel anxiety. Items like chew toys or a soft, familiar blanket can alleviate stress. For more susceptible dogs, discussing anxiety vests or medication with your vet could be beneficial.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Due to their energetic disposition, plan for exercise and bathroom breaks every 2 to 3 hours to keep your Boykin comfortable and content. Mental stimulation with puzzle toys during travel can also help manage their energy levels.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Though originally bred for hunting in Southern marshes, temperature control is vital for a Boykin Spaniel's comfort. A vehicle's interior should remain cool but not cold. Ample fresh water should be available to prevent dehydration.

Post Transportation Care for your Boykin Spaniel

Adjustment to New Surroundings

After transportation, allow your Boykin Spaniel to explore and become acclimated to their new environment at their own pace. Maintain close supervision and start introducing them to their new routine gradually.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After reaching your destination, monitor your Boykin for any unusual behavior or signs of illness. Consult with a vet if there are concerns, as some health issues may only become apparent post-travel.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reestablishing a regular routine of feeding, walks, and playtime helps to comfort your Boykin Spaniel. Consistent, continuous care reassures them and promotes a sense of security in their new home.
