What determines the cost of Coton De Tulear shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Coton De Tulear.

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 Coton De Tulear, 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 Coton De Tulear 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.

Coton De Tulear: The Cloud-Like Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Coton De Tulear, hailed from Madagascar, is known for its cotton-like coat and bright, cheerful demeanor. As a historical companion of pirates and noble families alike, this breed has developed into a sociable and affectionate pet, eager to please and inherent with a pleasingly adaptable nature. Their propensity for attachment, however, means they can be sensitive to separation and changes in environment. When traveling, these facets of their temperament necessitate a calm and reassuring presence to ensure they remain content and stress-free.

Size and Physical Needs

The Coton De Tulear typically sports a compact frame, weighing between 8 to 15 pounds. Despite their small stature, they pack a punch of energy and require regular activity to stay happy and healthy. While transporting a Coton De Tulear, it's essential to provide a secure, comfortable space that allows for movement but also prevents injury. Due to their lush coats, maintaining a climate-controlled environment is also key to prevent overheating and ensure comfort during their journey.

Common Health Considerations

This breed is generally healthy, but like all breeds, it may encounter certain health conditions, such as hip dysplasia or allergies. When preparing for transportation, ensure that all immunizations are current and any health documents stipulated by state or travel authorities are organized and ready for presentation. Consistent medication, if applicable, should also be adhered to throughout the trip.

How to prepare your Coton De Tulear 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

Compile a portfolio of your Coton's health and vaccination records before transportation. These documents are not only crucial in case of emergency but may also be required for crossing state lines or lodging if overnight stays are part of the journey.

Identification and Tracking

A modern microchip and a securely fastened tag are both indispensable. Additionally, consider a GPS tracker, especially for air travel, which can provide real-time location updates for added peace of mind during the transit of your beloved pet.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To support a pleasant travel, include a favored blanket or toy infused with home scents. These items cater to your Coton’s need for security and familiarity amidst the unfamiliar surroundings on the move.

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 Coton De Tulear

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Understanding your Coton's mental needs is just as crucial as addressing their physical ones. Familiar playthings, an item of your clothing, or a soft anxiety vest can work wonders in soothing them. In the event of higher stress levels, calming supplements recommended by your veterinarian could be beneficial.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Cotons should have the opportunity to stretch and relieve themselves every few hours. Establishing a routine for these breaks can greatly reduce travel anxiety and maintain overall comfort.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain a steady, cool temperature in the vehicle, adapted to suit your Coton’s plush coat. Ample water should be provided to keep them hydrated throughout their travels, utilizing portable water dishes for convenience.

Post Transportation Care for your Coton De Tulear

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Upon arrival, give your Coton time to explore and become familiar with their new environment at their own pace—offer treats, engage in play, and be patient as they acclimate. Their amiable nature generally fosters a smooth transition, given a gentle introduction to the new spaces and faces.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Even after a trip that seems successful, keep a close watch on your Coton for any signs of stress or illness, being ready to contact a veterinarian if concerns arise. Look out for changes in behavior, appetite, or elimination patterns as potential indicators.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reinstating a regular routine helps your Coton De Tulear regain a sense of normality. Consistent feeding times, walks, and bedtimes reinforce stability, helping your dog adjust and thrive in their new home.
