What determines the cost of Chinese Shar-Pei shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Chinese Shar-Pei.

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 Shar-Pei, 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 Shar-Pei 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 Shar-Pei: The Characteristic Companions

Origins and Temperament

Hailing from ancient China, the Chinese Shar-Pei is a breed enveloped in antiquity and mystique. Recognizable by their deep wrinkles and blue-black tongue, Shar-Peis were originally bred for guarding, hunting, and later, dog fighting. Their history endows them with a calm, independent, and sometimes standoffish temperament. This can occasionally translate into a sensitivity to change, making the transition of travel something that should be approached with understanding. A secure environment and a gentle approach are essential to account for their protective nature.

Size and Physical Needs

A medium-sized breed, Shar-Peis generally weigh between 45-60 pounds. With a compact build, they require regular exercise but are also prone to overheating due to their dense coat—something that's critical to consider during transportation. Drivers should provide ample space for comfort, as their folds require free airflow to remain dry and clean, reducing the risk of skin infections.

Common Health Considerations

Shar-Peis can be prone to certain conditions like skin infections, entropion, and hip dysplasia. It's important to ensure they are traveling with a valid health certificate and vaccination records, especially since regulatory compliance often necessitates proof of a pet's health status. When planning for transport, consider how these health predispositions might necessitate additional comfort measures to prevent undue stress on the animal.

How to prepare your Chinese Shar-Pei 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

Secure up-to-date health and vaccination records for your Shar-Pei. These documents are not only crucial for regulatory reasons but also provide valuable information to the transporter on how to care for your pet in case of emergencies.

Identification and Tracking

Ensure your Shar-Pei is microchipped and wears a sturdy collar with an up-to-date ID tag. Consider a temporary travel tag with the contact details of both departure and arrival points. GPS collars or devices are also recommended for an added layer of security in tracking your pet's whereabouts during transit.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To mitigate travel stress, include your Shar-Pei's favorite blanket or toy. Familiar scents can significantly reassure and calm your pet in uncertain and changing environments.

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 Shar-Pei

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Identify what soothes your Shar-Pei—perhaps a favorite chew toy or an anxiety vest. Practice travel routines prior to the trip to help them acclimatize. Music and regular verbal reassurance can also be therapeutic for anxiety-prone dogs.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Schedule frequent stops for exercise and bathroom breaks, considering that Shar-Peis are active but can also be stubborn. Consistency will help maintain their comfort and reduce the chance of accidents during the trip.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintaining a cool environment and adequate airflow is essential. Shar-Peis are susceptible to overheating, so a climate-controlled space is ideal. Ensure there's constant access to fresh water to support hydration throughout the journey.

Post Transportation Care for your Chinese Shar-Pei

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Give your Shar-Pei time to explore and become familiar with their new surroundings. Consistency and routine will help them settle in, so try to replicate the schedule they're used to as much as possible.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Post-travel, monitor your Shar-Pei closely for any signs of distress or illness and consult a veterinarian if necessary. Adjusting to a new environment can be stressful, and previous health conditions can be aggravated by change.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a routine is key for your Shar-Pei. Regular walks, feeding times, and affection will reassure them and facilitate a smooth transition into their new lifestyle.
