What determines the cost of Collie shipping

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

Mode of transportation

ratingAir travel

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 Collie, 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 Collie 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.

Collie: The Intelligent Companions

Origins and Temperament

Collies hail from the Scottish Highlands, where they were originally used as herding dogs. Renowned for their intelligence, loyalty, and friendly disposition, Collies make excellent family pets. However, their sensitivity and alertness mean they may be more prone to stress during travel. Understanding their affectionate nature and need for companionship is key to ensuring a smooth journey.

Size and Physical Needs

Collies are medium-sized dogs, with males typically weighing between 60-75 pounds and females between 50-65 pounds. Known for their high-energy levels, Collies require regular exercise and mental stimulation. When transporting Collies, space for stretching, along with a quiet and secure area, will help keep them comfortable and relaxed. Specialized accommodations, such as a temperature-controlled environment, are essential for their long, dense coats.

Common Health Considerations

While generally healthy, Collies can be predisposed to conditions such as hip dysplasia, eye anomalies, and dermatomyositis. They require up-to-date vaccinations and health checks before travel. Ensure your Collie is fit to travel by obtaining a health certificate from a veterinarian and taking preventative measures to manage any existing conditions.

How to prepare your Collie 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

A complete set of updated health and vaccination records is crucial for transporting your Collie. These documents should be on hand throughout the journey to facilitate any necessary vet visits or as required by transportation regulations.

Identification and Tracking

Proper identification via a microchip and a durable collar with tags is essential. For additional safety, consider a GPS collar or other tracking devices so you can monitor your Collie's location at all times during transport.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To help your Collie stay calm, include favorite toys and bedding that carry the scent of home. Familiar scents can significantly reduce anxiety and provide a sense of security 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 Collie

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Collies may experience travel stress, so it's important to bring along items that can help them relax, such as anxiety vests or calming sprays. Introduce these items before travel to associate them with positive experiences.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Collies' active nature calls for routine stops for exercise and bathroom breaks, ideally every 2-3 hours. This will help them expend energy and reduce travel anxiety.

Temperature Control and Hydration

The thick fur of a Collie requires a cool environment to prevent overheating. Ensure your vehicle is well-ventilated and maintain a consistent temperature. Provide frequent access to water to keep them hydrated throughout the trip.

Post Transportation Care for your Collie

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Upon arrival, give your Collie time to explore their new surroundings at their own pace. Maintain close physical contact to reassure them and ease the transition.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Collie for any signs of discomfort or illness and consult a veterinarian if there are any health concerns. A health check-up after travel can help catch any issues early.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a regular routine for feeding, exercise, and playtime will help your Collie adjust to the new environment. Continuous care is vital for their overall well-being and happiness in their new home.
