What determines the cost of Chorkie shipping

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

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 Chorkie, 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 Chorkie 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.

Chorkie: The Pocket-Sized Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Chorkie is a lovable blend of the Chihuahua and the Yorkshire Terrier, boasting a lineage rooted in companionship and spunk. These diminutive darlings are known for their vivacious personalities and fierce loyalty. As travel companions, their innate curiosity and sometimes anxious disposition mean they benefit from careful preparation and a dose of patience. Ensuring a serene travel environment is key to accommodating their sensitive nature.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically weighing no more than 10 pounds, the Chorkie's petite stature belies their energetic spirit. These pint-sized pups require daily exercise but can tire quickly, so frequent yet brief playtimes are ideal. During transport, snug and secure carriers, as well as plenty of padding for comfort, help protect their delicate frames and provide a sense of security.

Common Health Considerations

Chorkies may inherit health concerns common to their parent breeds, such as dental issues or hypoglycemia. Prior to travelling, it's essential to consult a veterinarian to procure any necessary health documentation and to ensure vaccinations are up-to-date. Always have a plan for accessing veterinary care on the road, just in case.

How to prepare your Chorkie 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

Keep an updated file of your Chorkie's health and vaccination history, and have this information readily available during transport. This documentation is critical, especially if interstate travel necessitates proof of vaccinations.

Identification and Tracking

Chorkies should have a well-fitted collar with an ID tag showcasing contact information. Microchips and GPS-enabled collars offer an additional safety net, ensuring that if your companion strays, they can be promptly located.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To stave off potential unease, pack a favorite blanket or toy that smells like home. Such comfort items are anchors to their secure and known world, making the journey less daunting.

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 Chorkie

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Comfort your Chorkie with their favored squeaky toy or by swaddling them in an anxiety vest. Soft-spoken assurances and familiar tunes can also provide solace along the way.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Provide ample opportunities for leg-stretching and potty breaks. A good rule of thumb is to stop every 2-3 hours to cater to their tiny bladders and need for frequent, brief bouts of activity.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Chorkies are sensitive to extreme temperatures. Maintain a comfortable and consistent climate in the vehicle, and offer water at each rest stop to ensure your pooch remains hydrated.

Post Transportation Care for your Chorkie

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Anticipate a period of adjustment as your Chorkie acclimatizes to their new environment. Maintain a calm demeanor and give them time to explore at their own pace to foster a smooth transition.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Keep a watchful eye on your Chorkie for signs of stress or illness after arrival. Appetite changes or unusual behavior may warrant a vet visit to rule out travel-induced health issues.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establish your Chorkie’s routine as soon as possible, including their feeding schedule, walks, and snuggle time. Consistency is key to ensuring their comfort and well-being in their new home.
