What determines the cost of English Setter shipping

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

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 English Setter, 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 English Setter 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.

English Setter: The Aristocratic Companions

Origins and Temperament

The English Setter has a noble lineage that dates back to the 14th century, originally bred for hunting game such as quail and pheasant. With their patient and gentle demeanor, they make for affable companions. However, their instinctual drive for bird setting can influence their travel behavior, making it essential to secure a transportation solution that accommodates their alert and active nature.

Size and Physical Needs

English Setters generally weigh between 45 to 80 pounds and carry a graceful physique. This breed requires regular exercise to maintain their fitness and mental well-being. During transport, they should be provided with a spacious environment to travel comfortably, and any journey should include ample room for stretches and movement to prevent restlessness.

Common Health Considerations

Typical health concerns for English Setters include hip dysplasia, deafness, and thyroid problems. It's imperative to have their health documentation up-to-date, particularly for air travel, to affirm they're fit for the journey. Taking preventive measures, like ensuring their diet isn't disrupted, can contribute to a health-complication-free trip.

How to prepare your English Setter 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 you have the latest health and vaccination records for your English Setter, as these are vital for both emergency situations and complying with transportation regulations. Keeping a digital and physical copy accessible during transit is recommended for ease of reference.

Identification and Tracking

Proper identification is critical. A collar with ID tags, a registered microchip, and considering a GPS tracker can significantly reduce the risk of your pet getting lost during travel, providing peace of mind.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To help maintain your English Setter's calm demeanour, include items imbued with familiar scents such as a beloved toy or a blanket from home. These will serve as a source of comfort amidst the unfamiliar sensations of travel.

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 English Setters

Managing Anxiety and Stress

English Setters may display anxiety during travel. To soothe them, bring along their favorite toys, consider an anxiety vest, and practice calming techniques they respond to, such as soothing music or gentle reassurance.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Establishing a routine for regular stops every 2-3 hours will allow your English Setter to exercise and relieve themselves, which is vital for their comfort and to prevent accidents.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain a comfortable temperature in the vehicle, avoiding extremes. Provide constant access to fresh water to keep your English Setter well-hydrated throughout the trip.

Post Transportation Care for your English Setter

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Upon arrival, give your English Setter time to explore and become acquainted with their new environment at their own pace. Familiar blankets or toys can help bridge the transition and offer a sense of security.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Keep a close eye on your English Setter's behavior and appetite following the journey. Consult a vet if you notice irregularities that persist, as they may indicate travel-related stress or other health issues.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reinstating a consistent routine for meals, walks, and bedtime can greatly assist your English Setter in settling into their new home. Stability in their daily activities will reinforce a sense of normalcy and security post-travel.
