What determines the cost of Cocker Spaniel shipping

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

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 Cocker 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 Cocker 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.

Cocker Spaniel: The Affectionate Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Cocker Spaniel, a breed originating from Spain and refined in the United Kingdom and the US, is known for its cheerful and friendly nature. This breed's historical background as a hunting dog has equipped it with an impressive level of intelligence and an eagerness to please, making it highly trainable. Their affectionate and sociable temperament means they often form strong bonds with their owners and can be sensitive to changes in their environment, which may affect their travel needs.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically, adult Cocker Spaniels range in size from 13.5 to 15.5 inches in height at the shoulder and weigh between 20 to 30 pounds. Their energetic and lively disposition requires regular exercise to dissipate their energy. When transporting a Cocker Spaniel, space for them to stretch out is crucial, and their long, lush coat may demand a climate-controlled environment to keep them cool and comfortable.

Common Health Considerations

Cocker Spaniels may be predisposed to certain health issues such as ear infections, eye conditions, and hip dysplasia. When travelling, it is essential to carry up-to-date health documentation, including a record of recent vaccinations and any preventive medications they’re taking. Ensuring that your Cocker Spaniel is fit for travel is paramount for a safe and stress-free journey.

How to prepare your Cocker 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

It is essential to have your Cocker Spaniel's health and vaccination records current and easily accessible during transportation. This includes documentation of vaccinations for rabies, distemper, and bordetella, among others, which may be requested by transport authorities.

Identification and Tracking

For secure travel, ensure your Cocker Spaniel has a collar with ID tags that include your contact information. Microchipping and the use of GPS trackers can offer additional peace of mind, enabling you to monitor your pet’s location in real-time.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To keep your Cocker Spaniel comfortable, bring along its favorite blanket or toy. This can provide a sense of security through familiarity and help soothe your pet during the journey.

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 Cocker Spaniel

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To reduce travel-induced stress in Cocker Spaniels, familiarize them with their travel crate before the journey. Packing a beloved toy or opting for a pheromone spray can also create a calming environment. Some pets respond well to anxiety vests or may require consultation with a vet for anti-anxiety medication.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular stops to allow your Cocker Spaniel exercise and bathroom breaks. A good rule of thumb is a break every 2-3 hours to let them stretch their legs and relieve themselves, helping to prevent restlessness and discomfort.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain a comfortable temperature in the vehicle, not too hot or cold, and provide access to fresh water at all times to ensure your Cocker Spaniel stays hydrated, especially during warmer weather.

Post Transportation Care for your Cocker Spaniel

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Allow your Cocker Spaniel time to explore and acclimate to their new environment. Keeping their favorite toys and a consistent feeding schedule can make this transition smoother and help them feel more at home.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Cocker Spaniel for any signs of stress or health issues in the days following transport. If you notice any concerning symptoms, seek veterinary assistance promptly.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reinstating a routine for feeding, walking, and playtime will aid in providing your Cocker Spaniel with stability and comfort. Continuing regular vet checks and grooming, especially for their ears and coat, will ensure their ongoing wellbeing.
