What determines the cost of Chinese Crested shipping

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

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 Chinese Crested, 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 Chinese Crested 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.

Chinese Crested: The Distinctive Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Chinese Crested breed originates from Africa, but they were developed into the graceful, attention-loving dogs we know today in China. These small, hairless dogs are known for their affectionate, playful, and sometimes mischievous nature. The lack of a fur coat makes them sensitive to extreme weather, an important factor to consider when arranging their travel. Owners must ensure that transportation providers are prepared to accommodate the breed's sensitivity to temperature variations and their need for human companionship.

Size and Physical Needs

Chinese Cresteds are small dogs, typically weighing 5-12 pounds, with slender bodies that require gentle handling. Their exercise needs are moderate, often fulfilled with daily walks and interactive play. Special accommodations during transport should include soft bedding to protect their delicate skin and opportunities for movement to prevent stiffness.

Common Health Considerations

This breed can suffer from skin issues, dental troubles, and in some cases, Canine Multiple System Degeneration (CMSD). Health documentation for travel is crucial and should include a recent veterinarian certificate and immunization records. Preventative measures, such as a skin-protecting sunscreen and a padded crate, will guard against injuries and ensure their well-being during transit.

How to prepare your Chinese Crested 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

When preparing for transportation, owners must provide a copy of their Chinese Crested's health and vaccination records. Keeping these accessible throughout the trip ensures compliance with state regulations and facilitates emergency medical care if necessary.

Identification and Tracking

A secure collar with updated tags and a microchip registration is essential for identification. Consideration should be given to a GPS tracker as an added safeguard, ensuring your pet's location can always be pinpointed during travel.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Packing your Chinese Crested's favorite blanket or toy can prove comforting during the journey. Familiar scents can significantly reduce stress, promoting a sense of security in a moving environment.

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 Chinese Crested

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Anxiety vests or shirts may provide an additional layer of security for your pet. Utilizing calming techniques such as gentle music or pheromone sprays can also help soothe a restless Chinese Crested.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular stops every 3-4 hours to allow for exercise and bathroom breaks. This routine helps maintain your Chinese Crested's comfort and reduces the likelihood of accidents.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Ensuring the vehicle is maintained at a comfortable temperature is imperative. Additionally, consistent access to fresh water will keep your Chinese Crested hydrated throughout the trip.

Post Transportation Care for your Chinese Crested

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Chinese Cresteds may require extra comfort and reassurance when adjusting to new surroundings. Gradually introducing them to their new environment will help manage stress and promote acclimatization.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Monitor your Chinese Crested for any signs of stress-induced illness or discomfort following travel. Consult with a veterinarian if any concerning symptoms arise.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a regular feeding, exercise, and sleep schedule is vital to your Chinese Crested's well-being. Ensuring continuity of care will also assist in the adaptation to their new home.
