What determines the cost of Cavalier King Charles Spaniel shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

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.

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 Cavalier King Charles 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.

Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Cavalier King Charles 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.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel: The Regal Companions

Origins and Temperament

The aristocratic Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, with origins dating back to the royal courts of England, is known for its affectionate and gentle nature. These noble canines thrive on companionship and are quite adaptable, which is reflected in their ease with travel. Their need for company should be factored into their transit, ensuring they are never alone for too long and that their royal lineage is honored with a transport befitting their loyal and loving temperament.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically weighing between 13 to 18 pounds, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a small breed with moderate exercise needs. During transport, these pint-sized pooches require enough space for comfort without feeling overwhelmed. While they enjoy being lap dogs, they also need room to stretch, as well as access to water and cool air, especially considering their long, silky coats.

Common Health Considerations

Like many purebreds, Cavaliers may be predisposed to certain health conditions, such as mitral valve disease and syringomyelia. Because stress can exacerbate these issues, it's crucial to provide a stress-free travel environment and to have all health documentation—especially proof of heart and neurological screenings—on hand for the journey.

How to prepare your Cavalier King Charles 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

You must have up-to-date health and vaccination records, including those for rabies and Bordetella, readily available during transport. This ensures not only regulatory compliance but also peace of mind in the case of an unexpected veterinary detour.

Identification and Tracking

Equip your Cavalier with a properly fitting collar and ID tag, including your contact information. Moreover, ensure they are microchipped, and consider investing in a GPS tracker to keep an attentive eye on your furry friend throughout their journey.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

A well-loved blanket or toy can make all the difference to a traveling Cavalier. Familiar scents can soothe and provide a sense of security in a moving environment. Pack these items along with a piece of clothing that smells like you to comfort your pet during this change.

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 Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Preparation is key in reducing travel-related stress. Introduce your Cavalier to their travel carrier well ahead of time, considering soft bedding and stress-relief tools like calming sprays or anxiety vests. Include short, positive pre-travel experiences in the crate to build up a comfort level.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Cavaliers should have the opportunity for light exercise and bathroom breaks approximately every 4-5 hours. This will not only cater to their physical needs but also provide reassurance and a chance to stretch those regal limbs.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are sensitive to extreme temperatures. Ensure the vehicle is well-ventilated and set to a comfortable temperate climate. An ample supply of fresh water is non-negotiable for keeping your royal companion hydrated throughout their journey.

Post Transportation Care for your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Allow your Cavalier to explore their new surroundings at their own pace. A consistent show of love and patience will contribute immensely to their adaptability, as Cavaliers are keenly attuned to the mood and demeanor of their human companions.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Post-travel, watch your Spaniel for any signs of distress or illness. If your pet appears to be in discomfort or is showing unusual behavior, consult a vet promptly to rule out any travel-induced conditions or stress impacts.

Continuing Care and Routine

Establishing a routine with regular feeding times, walks, and play sessions is vital for a Cavalier to settle into their new home. Their sociable nature means they will quickly acclimate, as long as you maintain their royal standards of care and affection.
