What determines the cost of Doberman Pinscher shipping

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

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.

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 Doberman Pinscher, 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 Doberman Pinscher 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.

Doberman Pinscher: The Noble Companions

Origins and Temperament

Boasting a lineage dating back to the late 19th century, the Doberman Pinscher is a breed engineered for stamina, intelligence, and strength. Originally bred by the German tax collector Louis Dobermann for protection on his rounds, these dogs are known for their loyalty and courage. Intensely protective yet affectionate with their owners, the Doberman's alert demeanor means they can sometimes be wary of strangers. When it comes to travel, this breed's innate vigilance and strong attachment to their human companions necessitate a transport environment that feels secure and reassuring to mitigate any stress.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically weighing between 60 to 100 pounds, Dobermans are powerful and energetic dogs that demand ample space to ensure comfort during transportation. Given their high energy levels, ensuring that they've had adequate exercise before embarking on their journey is vital. Special accommodations might include ample room to stand and stretch, a non-slip surface for stability, and moderate temperatures, as they have short coats and can be sensitive to cold.

Common Health Considerations

Known health issues for Dobermans include cardiac conditions, Wobbler syndrome, and hip dysplasia. It's crucial for transportation services to be informed of these potential challenges, with all health documentation readily available. Before travel, owners should verify vaccinations, administer any regular medications, and take preventative measures to ensure the Doberman's health remains intact throughout the journey.

How to prepare your Doberman Pinscher 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's imperative to have up-to-date health and vaccination records at hand during transit. This includes proof of vaccinations, a recent health certificate from a veterinarian, and any necessary medication with clear dosage instructions.

Identification and Tracking

Ensuring your Doberman is identifiable is key during transport. A sturdy collar with tags, a well-fitted microchip, and considering a GPS tracker can offer additional peace of mind. Tags should contain the dog's name, owner's contact information, and any urgent medical needs.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To soothe the Doberman's nerves, include a favorite toy or blanket to create a sense of familiarity. Items with the owner's scent can particularly be soothing and provide extra comfort 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 Doberman Pinschers

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To combat anxiety and stress, familiarize your Doberman with their travel crate beforehand. Bring along a toy or item they associate with positive experiences. An anxiety vest may also be useful for soothing travel jitters.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Doberman Pinschers need frequent physical activity. Arrange for exercise and bathroom breaks roughly every 4-5 hours during travel. This will help them burn off energy and reduce discomfort.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Keep the travel environment at a moderate temperature, avoiding extremes. Ensure constant access to fresh water to maintain hydration and offer meals at their usual schedule to prevent gastrointestinal upset.

Post Transportation Care for your Doberman Pinscher

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Post-travel, allow your Doberman to explore their new surroundings at their own pace. Maintain a calm demeanor as your pet takes in the new environment to affirm a sense of safety.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Watch for any signs of stress or illness in your Doberman after transportation. Indications such as appetite changes or unusual behavior should be discussed with a veterinarian without delay.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establish a normal routine with regular feeding times, exercise, and affection to help your Doberman adjust. Continuity in care can significantly ease the transition and reassure your pet in their new home.
