What determines the cost of Catahoula Leopard shipping

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

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 Catahoula Leopard, 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 Catahoula Leopard 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.

Catahoula Leopard Dog: The Multifaceted Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Catahoula Leopard Dog boasts a storied lineage as Louisiana's state dog, with roots tracing back to a mix of Indigenous American dogs and the canines brought by Spanish explorers. Known for their versatility as hunting and herding dogs, this breed exhibits assertiveness, intelligence, and a protective nature. Such traits necessitate a transport environment that caters to their active disposition, ensuring their journey is not just safe, but also mentally stimulating.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically weighing between 50 to 95 pounds, the Catahoula Leopard Dog's robust frame requires adequate space during transportation. Renowned for their boundless energy reserve and a penchant for exploration, these dogs' transport must facilitate movement and regular exercise. Their short coat offers minimal protection against extreme weather, so climate-controlled environments are crucial during transit.

Common Health Considerations

The breed is prone to hip dysplasia, deafness, and sight issues like cataracts. For travel, ensure that all health documentation, especially relating to these conditions, is current and readily available. Preventative measures like securing a stable crate and providing a stress-free environment can help minimize potential discomfort on the road.

How to prepare your Catahoula Leopard 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 health and vaccination records must include updated rabies shots and a veterinarian's clean bill of health. Keep these documents handy during transport to ensure seamless interactions with authorities and in case of emergencies.

Identification and Tracking

Ensure your Catahoula Leopard Dog wears a collar with up-to-date ID tags and consider a microchip and GPS tracker for an added layer of security. These precautions will help you quickly locate your pet should they become separated from the transporter.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To mitigate the stress of travel, pack your dog's favorite blanket or toy. Familiar smells can provide immense comfort, transforming their crate into a haven of tranquillity amidst the unfamiliar 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 Catahoula Leopard Dog

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Counter anxiety with a well-loved chew toy or an anxiety vest, if previously accustomed. Introduce these items well in advance to associate them with a sense of security. Additionally, familiarize your dog with vehicle travel through short trips leading up to the longer journey.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular stops, ideally every three to four hours, to accommodate a Catahoula's active lifestyle. Active play or a brisk walk during breaks can significantly alleviate travel tension.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain a comfortable temperature in the transport vehicle, avoiding extremes that could distress your pet. Ample water supply and a spill-proof bowl are indispensable for hydration, particularly in warmer climates or seasons.

Post Transportation Care for your Catahoula Leopard

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Transition your Catahoula Leopard Dog to their new environment with patience. Allow them to explore their new space at their own pace, using familiar objects to reinforce a sense of security.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Track your dog's behavior and appetite following travel; look for signs of anxiety or stress. If your pet exhibits any concerning changes, promptly consult a veterinarian.

Continuing Care and Routine

Resume your dog's regular exercise, feeding schedule, and training routines as soon as possible. Such consistency will help ground your Catahoula Leopard Dog, instilling a new sense of normalcy in their relocated life.
