What determines the cost of Dutch Shepherd shipping

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

Mode of transportation

Time ⏱⏱

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 Dutch Shepherd, 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 Dutch Shepherd 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.

Dutch Shepherd: The Agile and Loyal Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Dutch Shepherd hails from the Netherlands, historically bred as a versatile and intelligent farm dog adept at herding, guard duties, and companionship. With their pronounced watchdog instincts and high energy levels, Dutch Shepherds are alert and active, often requiring a considerate approach to travel to accommodate their keen senses and need for mental stimulation. Ensuring a travel plan that includes mental exercises and strategic rest can significantly contribute to a more serene journey for these poised canines.

Size and Physical Needs

A medium-sized breed, Dutch Shepherds typically weigh between 42-75 pounds and stand about 22-25 inches tall at the shoulder. These athletic dogs boast a significant exercise requirement, making regular stops for physical activity a necessity during long journeys. Transport should provide ample room for them to stretch and maintain comfort to accommodate their agile nature.

Common Health Considerations

Generally hardy, Dutch Shepherds can be predisposed to hip dysplasia, a condition to be mindful of during transport. Essential health documentation for travel includes vaccination records against common canine diseases. It is advisable to address any health conditions beforehand with a veterinarian to mitigate the risk of complications on the road.

How to prepare your Dutch Shepherd 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, especially those for rabies, distemper, and bordetella, are current and readily available. Keeping a digital copy accessible on your device can prevent delays and ensure a smooth trip for your Dutch Shepherd.

Identification and Tracking

A microchip, alongside secure tags on a well-fitted collar, provides robust means of identification. Additionally, considering GPS-enabled collars might offer an extra layer of security for keeping tabs on your adventurous Dutch Shepherd during transport.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Bringing along a favorite blanket or toy can offer your pet reassurance. Articles with the scent of home, like a piece of clothing, can also soothe a traveling Dutch Shepherd, providing a sense of continuity and security.

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 Dutch Shepherd

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Recognize the signs of anxiety in your Dutch Shepherd, such as excessive panting or pacing. Stress can be alleviated through familiar objects, such as their treasured toys, or garments that smell like home. Employing a calming vest or practicing relaxation exercises can also assuage travel nerves.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Schedule stops every 2-3 hours for exercise and relieving themselves, mimicking their ordinary routine as closely as possible. Your Dutch Shepherd's mental and physical health will benefit from this regularity.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain a comfortable and stable vehicle temperature, avoiding extremes in heat or cold. Offer water at every rest stop to ensure your pet remains well-hydrated throughout the trip.

Post Transportation Care for your Dutch Shepherd

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Dutch Shepherds, being adaptable, will appreciate exploration time in the new environment. Supervised introductions to new spaces and gradual expansion of their accessible area will help them feel more at ease in their new setting.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Monitor your Dutch Shepherd for any signs of stress or discomfort following your move. If symptoms are persistent or concerning, consult with a veterinarian to rule out any travel-related health issues.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a regular routine with consistent mealtimes, walks, and play sessions will aid your Dutch Shepherd in acclimating to their new home. Continuing with the care and structure they are accustomed to will help in a smoother transition and a happier pet.
