What determines the cost of Bullmastiff shipping

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

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 Bullmastiff, 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 Bullmastiff 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.

Bullmastiff: The Stalwart Companions

Origins and Temperament

Rooted in 19th century Britain, the Bullmastiff was bred as a gamekeeper's guard dog—strong and brave, yet gentle with family. These patient and loyal dogs are known for being calm and affectionate, making them sensitive to the stresses of travel. Due to their protective nature, Bullmastiffs require a travel environment that feels secure and a handler who can offer reassuring, calm guidance.

Size and Physical Needs

A Bullmastiff’s size is undeniably impressive, with adults often weighing between 100 to 130 pounds. Their sizable frame means they need ample space during transport in addition to regular exercise to maintain health. Adaptable to various climates, Bullmastiffs still require a moderate temperature and soft bedding during transport to support their joints and promote comfort.

Common Health Considerations

The breed is predisposed to conditions such as hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, and bloat, which should all be considered when arranging their travel. Ensuring your Bullmastiff is current with health check-ups and traveling with all necessary health documentation is key for a safe and hassle-free journey.

How to prepare your Bullmastiff 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

Secure, up-to-date health and vaccination records should accompany a Bullmastiff during travel. Rabies vaccination is crucial, and a health certificate from a veterinarian might also be required, depending on the destination.

Identification and Tracking

Proper identification, such as a collar with tags and an up-to-date microchip, is critical. For extra peace of mind, consider a GPS collar to track your Bullmastiff’s location at all times during travel.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Minimizing travel anxiety can be accomplished by bringing along a favorite toy or blanket bearing the scent of home. These items act as soothing tokens of familiarity for a Bullmastiff throughout their journey.

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 Bullmastiff

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Acclimating a Bullmastiff to their travel crate prior to departure can greatly reduce stress. Calming aids like anxiety vests or recommended supplements can also help soothe nerves during transit.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular stops every couple of hours to allow your Bullmastiff to stretch and relieve themselves, as maintaining regular physical activity is essential for their well-being.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintaining a cool, well-ventilated space is vital, as Bullmastiffs can overheat easily. Access to fresh water at all times during the trip will help maintain hydration and comfort.

Post Transportation Care for your Bullmastiff

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Patient introduction to new environments and people will help a Bullmastiff become comfortable in their new home. Maintain familiar smells and routines during this adjustment period to provide a sense of security.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After travel, monitor your Bullmastiff for any signs of distress or discomfort, as transit can exacerbate underlying health issues. Consult a veterinarian if any unusual symptoms arise.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a regular exercise and feeding routine is crucial for a Bullmastiff's post-travel adjustment. Consistency in care ensures they feel stable and safe in their new environment.
