What determines the cost of French Bulldog shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your French Bulldog.

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 French Bulldog, 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 French Bulldog 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.

French Bulldog: The Characteristic Companions

Origins and Temperament

The French Bulldog, with roots tracing back to England and later honed in France, stands as a symbol of affection and playfulness. Originally bred as companions, these dogs typically exhibit a charming and adaptable temperament, making them ideal for families and singles alike. Their sociable nature, however, could translate into separation anxiety, which is an important consideration for their travel needs. Ensuring a stress-free environment is key to a pleasant journey for these little charmers.

Size and Physical Needs

French Bulldogs typically fall within the range of 16-28 pounds, boasting a compact build ideal for apartment living. Despite their minimal exercise requirements, they do need regular, structured activity to stay healthy. Due to their brachycephalic facial structure, extra care must be taken during transport to avoid respiratory distress, especially in extreme temperatures or high-stress situations.

Common Health Considerations

These companions can be prone to conditions like brachycephalic syndrome, allergies, and spine issues. A health certificate, often required for travel, should confirm that the French Bulldog is fit for travel and has had its vaccinations. Pre-emptive measures such as planning for temperature-controlled environments and avoiding overexertion are essential to ensuring their safety during transit.

How to prepare your French Bulldog 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

Keeping a detailed record of your French Bulldog's health and vaccination history is imperative. Ensure these documents are handy during travel to address any potential emergencies or regulatory checks.

Identification and Tracking

A collar with ID tags, a microchip registration, and considering GPS tracking actions are best practices for keeping your four-legged friend secure throughout the journey. Updated contact information is crucial in the event of an unintended detour.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To ease the stress of travel, pack your French Bulldog's favorite blanket or toy. Familiar scents can serve as a source of comfort, reducing anxiety and providing a sense of normalcy.

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 French Bulldog

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Acknowledging the French Bulldog's tendency toward anxiety is vital. Options such as a well-loved toy, an anxiety vest, or a familiar blanket can offer reassurance. Calming techniques and maintaining routine as much as possible will also support a more pleasant trip.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Although they're low-energy, ensuring regular stops for gentle exercise and bathroom breaks is key, not only for comfort but also to prevent accidents. A schedule aligning with their usual routine will help keep stress at bay.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Due to their brachycephalic nature, French Bulldogs require a cool, well-ventilated space, so temperature control is essential. Regular access to water and avoiding travel during temperature extremes will prevent overheating and dehydration.

Post Transportation Care for your French Bulldog

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Once at their destination, a familiar setup with their favorite items will help a French Bulldog adapt more quickly. Patience and a gradual introduction to their new home can alleviate the stress of change.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After arrival, keep an eye on your pet's behavior and health. Any signs of distress or discomfort should warrant a visit to the vet to ensure a smooth transition.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reestablish a consistent routine as soon as possible. Regular meals, walks, and playtime will reassure your French Bulldog and help them settle into their new environment with ease.
