What determines the cost of Dogue De Bordeaux shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Dogue De Bordeaux.

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 Dogue De Bordeaux, 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 Dogue De Bordeaux 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.

Dogue De Bordeaux: The Dignified Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Dogue De Bordeaux, also known as the French Mastiff, has a storied history as a guardian, hunter, and loyal companion. Hailing from France, these gentle giants carry a calm and affectionate temperament, which can be juxtaposed with a fiercely protective nature when it comes to their families. While traveling, their sensitivity to the attitudes and emotions of their owners should be taken into account, as this can influence their comfort levels. Potential for anxiety makes travel preparation for these noble canines all the more important.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically ranging from 99 to 110 pounds, Dogue De Bordeauxs require ample room to ensure their comfort. This breed needs regular but moderate exercise to maintain muscular stature without overwhelming their joints. While transporting such impressive animals, space to stretch, lie down, and relax is imperative. It's crucial to provide stability and support within transport vehicles to prevent injury.

Common Health Considerations

Unfortunately, like many large breeds, Dogue De Bordeauxs are prone to conditions such as hip dysplasia, heart disease, and bloat. Having up-to-date health documentation available will be vital for travel. In addition, taking proactive steps such as feeding smaller meals before transit and knowing the signs of stress can safeguard their health en route.

How to prepare your Dogue De Bordeaux 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

Ensure all health and vaccination records are current and readily available. This documentation is not only a safety measure but often a legal requirement for interstate travel. Keep a hard copy on hand and consider having digital backups accessible during transit.

Identification and Tracking

It is essential for your Dogue De Bordeaux to have a microchip along with tags on their collar containing contact information. In the event of separation, GPS trackers can offer an additional layer of security to quickly reunite with your beloved pet.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Familiarity breeds contentment. Therefore, bring along a favored blanket or toy imbued with the scents of home to provide a sense of security. Such items can be invaluable stress reducers during long journeys.

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 Dogue De Bordeaux

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To mollify anxiety, incorporate comforting accessories such as a well-loved toy or an anxiety vest, and use calming techniques such as soft music or periodic reassurance. Understanding your Dogue's unique cues for discomfort will enable you to respond effectively.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

A schedule accommodating regular stops for light exercise and bathroom breaks is crucial. These allow your Dogue to stretch, minimizing discomfort and restlessness, and attend to their needs, thus keeping them happy and healthy.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Being brachycephalic (having a broad, short skull), Dogue De Bordeauxs can struggle with temperature regulation. Transport environments should be kept cool but not cold, and fresh water should be available to your pet throughout the voyage to prevent overheating and dehydration.

Post Transportation Care for your Dogue De Bordeaux

Adjustment to New Surroundings

After arrival, provide your Dogue De Bordeaux time to explore and become acquainted with their new home at their own pace. Maintaining familiar routines in feeding and walking can ease the transition and confer a sense of normalcy.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Keep a close watch on your pet’s behavior and physical state post-travel. Look out for any signs of distress or illness and be prepared to consult a veterinarian if you notice anything concerning.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a consistent schedule for your Dogue De Bordeaux can provide comfort and stability. Consistent mealtimes, walks, and play sessions remind them that though their environment has changed, their routine and caring family remain constant.
