What determines the cost of Central Asian Shepherd shipping

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

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 Central Asian 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.

Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Central Asian 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.

Central Asian Shepherd Dog: The Stoic Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Central Asian Shepherd Dog boasts a storied lineage that dates back over 4,000 years, originating from the vast and rugged climes of Central Asia. Known for their independence and protective nature, these dogs served as reliable guardians for nomadic shepherds. Their innate wariness toward strangers and profound loyalty make them exceptional family protectors, yet these traits also imply a need for specialized attention during transport. Thoroughly socialized individuals tend to travel better, but their inherent vigilance necessitates a transport environment that feels secure to minimize stress for these dignified canines.

Size and Physical Needs

With a weight range spanning from 88 to 110 pounds, the majestic Central Asian Shepherd Dog requires ample space for a comfortable journey. Their considerable size coupled with a dense double coat means they thrive in cooler temperatures, so climate control during transportation is paramount. As robust, active dogs, they also demand regular stops for exercise and relief to maintain their physical and mental well-being while on the road.

Common Health Considerations

Generally hearty and resilient, these noble dogs may still be prone to conditions such as hip dysplasia and heart issues. Secure transportation necessitates up-to-date health documentation—and whenever possible—recent vet checks to ensure travel fitness. It's also wise to travel with any medications they require, alongside a straightforward plan to mitigate potential stressors that could exacerbate health concerns.

How to prepare your Central Asian 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

Prior to embarkation, secure and readily accessible records of your Central Asian Shepherd's medical history and vaccination status are crucial. These documents not only assure compliance with state and interstate laws but also provide essential information in the event of a medical emergency during transit.

Identification and Tracking

Ensuring your companion is microchipped and wears a clearly legible tag with current contact information is a must. For added peace of mind, consider equipping your Central Asian Shepherd with GPS capabilities, allowing for their constant tracking en route.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Introduce a blanket or a favorite toy infused with home scents to the travel crate ahead of the journey. These familiar items offer a solace of home and can greatly alleviate anxiety for your canine friend during the trip.

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 Central Asian Shepherd Dog

Managing Anxiety and Stress

While each dog is unique, Central Asian Shepherds often benefit from a comfort item, such as a favored toy, or an anxiety vest if prone to stress. If your dog responds well to calming music or scents, incorporate these effortlessly into the travel setting.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Adopt a travel itinerary that includes frequent stops—every 2-3 hours—for exercise and bathroom breaks. A steadfast routine aids in mitigating stress and maintains your Central Asian Shepherd's health throughout the trip.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Optimal temperature control is crucial, particularly due to their thick coat. Ensure the vehicle is well-ventilated and avoid extreme temperatures. Maintain a consistent supply of fresh water to keep your dog hydrated and comfortable.

Post Transportation Care for your Central Asian Shepherd

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Patience is key in helping your Central Asian Shepherd acclimate post-journey. Familiarize them slowly with their new setting through controlled and comforting introductions, ensuring to respect their need for occasional solitude as they adjust.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your dog for signs of distress or illness after travel. If there is any cause for concern, do not hesitate to contact a veterinarian. Monitoring their behavior and appetite can provide early indicators of potential health issues following transportation.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing your Central Asian Shepherd's daily routine—including consistent meal times, exercise, and sleep patterns—is essential for their adaptation to a new environment. Consistent and attentive care is crucial to maintain their contentment and well-being after the move.
