What determines the cost of Caucasian Shepherd shipping

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

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 Caucasian Shepherd, 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 Caucasian Shepherd 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.

Caucasian Shepherd Dog: The Majestic Companions

Origins and Temperament

With roots tracing back to the Caucasus mountain region, the Caucasian Shepherd Dog is a guardian breed known for its bravery and loyalty. Bred to protect flocks from predators, these dogs exhibit a calm yet vigilantly protective temperament. Their size and protective nature mean they often require a calm, assertive handler and may need extra assurance and careful management when traveling to maintain a stress-free environment.

Size and Physical Needs

Known for their impressive size, Caucasian Shepherd Dogs can weigh anywhere from 80 to 200 pounds and require ample space to be comfortable. When considering transportation for such a large breed, it is essential to ensure they have enough room to stand up, turn around, and lie down comfortably. They need regular exercise, which must be managed even during transit, along with space that accommodates their thick fur and helps prevent overheating.

Common Health Considerations

While robust, Caucasian Shepherd Dogs can be prone to hip dysplasia, heart issues, and other conditions typical of large breeds. Ensuring they're up to date with all vaccinations and health checks is crucial, and any travel should accommodate their need for a comfortable, supportive surface to rest upon. Reliable health documentation is vital for both peace of mind and adherence to regulations.

How to prepare your Caucasian Shepherd 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 health and vaccination records are current and on hand. Documentation should include a veterinary health certificate if crossing state lines. Proper records expedite emergency care if needed and can be a regulatory requirement for interstate travel.

Identification and Tracking

Adequate identification such as tags, collars, and microchips is essential. If possible, equipping your canine companion with a GPS tracker offers an added layer of security and peace of mind during transit.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Travel can be disorienting, so bringing their favorite blanket or toy can offer comfort. Familiar scents are particularly soothing and can greatly 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 Caucasian Shepherd Dog

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Familiarize your dog with their travel crate well before departure. A scent item like an old t-shirt can help, as can a specialized anxiety vest for nervous pets. Calming exercises and commands should be used consistently.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Schedule regular stops for exercise and relief every two to three hours to cater to their size and activity level. This will help to prevent stiffness and restlessness.

Temperature Control and Hydration

These thick-coated giants require spaces that aren't too hot to prevent overheating. Maintain a comfortable temperature and have water available at all times to ensure they stay hydrated throughout the trip.

Post Transportation Care for your Caucasian Shepherd

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Introduce your Caucasian Shepherd to their new surroundings slowly and supervise initial explorations. Maintaining previous routines as much as possible can aid in adjusting to a new environment.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Monitor your dog closely for any signs of stress or illness after travel. Consult a veterinarian if you notice any concerning behaviors or symptoms.

Continuing Care and Routine

Quickly re-establishing a regular routine for meals, walks, and playtime will help your Caucasian Shepherd adapt and thrive. Consistency in care reaffirms their sense of security.
