What determines the cost of Dalmatian shipping

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

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 Dalmatian, 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 Dalmatian 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.

Dalmatian: The Dynamic Companions

Origins and Temperament

With their distinctive spots and noble carriage, Dalmatians are a breed steeped in history, likely tracing back to historical regions of Dalmatia. Renowned for their heritage as coach dogs, these intelligent and energetic companions possess a spirited and playful temperament. This high-spirited nature means that Dalmatians are sensitive to changes in routine, which can influence their travel experience. They thrive on attention and engagement, so journeys should be planned with consideration for their need for companionship and mental stimulation.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically weighing between 45 to 70 pounds, Dalmatians are of a build that is both strong and athletic. Their fondness for exercise means they require ample space to stretch and move around during transportation. Due to their sizable frame, a spacious travel crate that allows comfortable mobility is vital. Additionally, given their high energy levels, planning for sufficient exercise before and during transit is essential for their well-being.

Common Health Considerations

While generally healthy, Dalmatians can be prone to certain conditions such as urinary stones and deafness. Ensuring that all health documentation is current, particularly proof of a recent veterinary examination, is crucial when planning travel. To ensure a safe trip, preventive measures such as a well-ventilated crate and regular stops for hydration and relief are important.

How to prepare your Dalmatian 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

Before embarking on a trip, it is imperative that all Dalmatians have up-to-date health and vaccination records. These documents should be easily accessible throughout the trip to ensure compliance with any regional or national travel regulations.

Identification and Tracking

Secure identification is crucial when transporting a Dalmatian. A collar with an ID tag including your contact information, along with a registered microchip, can provide peace of mind. For added security, consider equipping your Dalmatian with a GPS tracker to monitor their location in real-time.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Familiar items such as blankets and toys that carry the scent of home can provide comfort to a Dalmatian during transit. These items can greatly reduce stress and help maintain a sense of normalcy.

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 Dalmatian

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To alleviate anxiety for a traveling Dalmatian, familiar toys or a well-loved blanket can be soothing. Additionally, the use of anxiety vests and practicing calming techniques prior to travel can help make the journey more enjoyable for your spotted friend.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Planning for regular exercise and bathroom breaks is key for a Dalmatian's comfort. Ideally, stops should be scheduled every 3-4 hours to allow for stretching and relief, satisfying their physical need for activity and reducing potential stress.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Dalmatians fare best in moderate climates. Ensure the vehicle is well-regulated, avoiding extreme heat or cold. Keep a supply of fresh water available at all times to maintain hydration throughout the journey.

Post Transportation Care for your Dalmatian

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Upon arrival, allow your Dalmatian to explore their new environment under your supervision to facilitate a smooth transition. Maintaining familiar routines in feeding and exercise can greatly assist in their adjustment process.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After travel, monitor your Dalmatian for any signs of stress or illness and have them evaluated by a veterinarian promptly if any concerns arise.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a regular care routine is crucial for your Dalmatian post-move. Continue with their usual feeding schedule, exercise regimen, and affectionate interaction to help them settle into their new home.
