What determines the cost of German Wirehaired Pointer shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your German Wirehaired Pointer.

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 German Wirehaired Pointer, 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 German Wirehaired Pointer 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.

German Wirehaired Pointer: The Versatile Companions

Origins and Temperament

With its origins tracing back to 19th century Germany, the German Wirehaired Pointer was bred for the demanding role of versatile hunting dog. Renowned for their robustness, keen sense of smell, and all-weather coat, these vigilant and energetic dogs are friendly, affectionate towards their owners, and adept at guarding their home. Their travel needs are influenced by their high intelligence and energetic nature, which demands mental stimulation even while on the move.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically standing between 22 and 26 inches at the shoulder, German Wirehaired Pointers are medium to large-sized dogs with a hearty constitution. Due to their inherent drive for physical activity, they require ample space and frequent stops for exercise during travel to maintain their wellbeing. Transport accommodations should consider their need for movement and a comfortable, ventilated space.

Common Health Considerations

Health concerns specific to this breed, such as hip dysplasia and heart diseases, require attention when traveling. It's important for pet transport services to have access to proper health documentation, including a recent health check record and proof of vaccinations. To safeguard against travel-related health issues, preventative measures like flea, tick, and heartworm prevention should be current.

How to prepare your German Wirehaired Pointer 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, such as rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella, are up-to-date and on-hand during travel. These documents are essential for verifying your pet's health status and for any necessary checkpoints.

Identification and Tracking

German Wirehaired Pointers should be fitted with a secure collar, identification tags, and should be microchipped for safety. Additionally, equipping them with a GPS tracker can provide peace of mind and real-time location updates.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Don't forget to pack a favorite blanket, toy, or item of clothing that smells like home. Familiar scents are a powerful way to reduce stress and provide comfort during their journey.

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 German Wirehaired Pointer

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Minimize your pet's anxiety by bringing along a favored chew toy or a pheromone-based anxiety vest. Consistent reassurance and calm demeanor from the transporter can also help soothe nerves.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Due to their high energy, it's recommended to schedule stops every 2-3 hours for bathroom breaks and leg-stretching. Keeping a leash handy and knowing secure areas for exercise can help manage their energy efficiently.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Climate control is essential for German Wirehaired Pointers, as their dense coat can cause overheating. Ensure the vehicle's temperature is comfortable and provide cool water to maintain hydration throughout the trip.

Post Transportation Care for your German Wirehaired Pointer

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Allow your German Wirehaired Pointer to explore their new home gradually, providing them with their familiar items to ease into the environment. Patience and consistency are key to a successful adjustment.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Post-travel, monitor for any signs of discomfort or illness and maintain a vigilant eye on their behavior. If any health concerns arise, consult with a veterinarian promptly.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reestablishing a regular routine of feeding, walking, and playtime will help your German Wirehaired Pointer thrive in their new environment. Maintain ongoing care and routine veterinary check-ups to ensure their long-term health and happiness.
