What determines the cost of Dogo Argentino shipping

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

Mode of transportation

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 Dogo Argentino, 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 Dogo Argentino 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.

Dogo Argentino: The Majestic Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Dogo Argentino, originating from Argentina, was developed for big game hunting, primarily focusing on wild boar. This breed is known for its bravery, power, and unwavering loyalty. Often seen as fearless protectors, Dogos also possess a friendly and affectionate side, making them excellent family pets. When it comes to travel, their protective nature means they might be wary of new situations or handlers. Therefore, ensuring familiarity and a sense of security during transport is crucial to keep stress levels to a minimum.

Size and Physical Needs

The Dogo Argentino is a large, muscular breed, with males standing up to 27 inches at the shoulder and females slightly smaller. Weighing in between 88-100 pounds, they require regular exercise to maintain their health and happiness. When transporting a Dogo, space is a key consideration. These athletic canines need room to move and stretch out, as well as regular stops for exercise to prevent restlessness.

Common Health Considerations

While generally robust, Dogos can be predisposed to certain health issues like hip dysplasia and deafness. It’s imperative that you obtain health clearance from a veterinarian prior to travel, including proof of vaccinations and any specific medication or health accommodations your pet might require. Planning for a comfortable journey can help mitigate potential health risks linked to stress or prolonged confinement.

How to prepare your Dogo Argentino 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

Keep all your Dogo's health and vaccination records current and ready for presentation. This documentation is essential not only for the safety of your pet but also as a requirement for many transportation providers and destinations.

Identification and Tracking

A Dogo Argentino should have proper identification, including a collar with tags and a microchip with up-to-date contact information. Additionally, consider a GPS tracker as an added measure so you can monitor your pet's location throughout their journey.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To help your Dogo remain calm during transit, pack their favorite blanket, a piece of your clothing, or a preferred toy. Familiar scents are comforting and can greatly reduce travel anxiety.

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 Dogo Argentino

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Familiar objects like a treasured toy or a comfort blanket can help curb anxiety. Don't forget that your calm demeanor has a profound influence on your pet; if they see that you're at ease, this will help them relax too. For added comfort, consider a well-fitted anxiety vest or calming supplements recommended by your vet.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular breaks to allow your Dogo to stretch their legs and relieve themselves. This breed is highly energetic, so sufficient physical activity during stopovers is crucial for a relaxed mindset and a comfortable journey.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Due to their short coat and muscular build, Dogo Argentinos can be sensitive to extreme temperatures. Ensure the vehicle is climate-controlled and provide free access to water to prevent dehydration during the trip.

Post Transportation Care for your Dogo Argentino

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Provide a quiet and personal space for your Dogo to retreat to as they become accustomed to their new surroundings. Maintain familiar routines to help ease the transition, and offer lots of affection to reinforce a sense of comfort and security.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Keep an eye on your Dogo Argentino for any signs of discomfort or illness post-transportation. If you notice changes in their behavior or appetite, consult a veterinarian as these could be signs of stress or travel-related issues.

Continuing Care and Routine

Establish a regular routine of exercise, meals, and playtime to help your Dogo settle in after their journey. Consistency provides reassurance, helping to cement a strong foundation for your Dogo Argentino's life in their new environment.
