What determines the cost of Giant Schnauzer shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Giant Schnauzer.

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 Giant Schnauzer, 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 Giant Schnauzer 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.

Giant Schnauzer: The Majestic Companions

Origins and Temperament

Hailing from Bavaria, the Giant Schnauzer was bred to drive cattle and work as a guard dog. Known for their intelligence, strength, and deep loyalty, these dogs are energetic protectors who require companionship and purpose. Their temperament—bold, vigilant, and spirited—necessitates careful handling during travel. Familiarity and routine are key to reassure them in transit, as their protective instincts can be heightened in unfamiliar settings.

Size and Physical Needs

Giant Schnauzers stand tall at 23.5 to 27.5 inches, weighing between 55 and 85 pounds. These robust dogs demand regular exercise and ample space to move. In transit, sufficient room to stand and stretch, as well as a secure and comfortable area, are essential. Air circulation, appropriate bedding, and space to accommodate their larger frame must be prioritized.

Common Health Considerations

Like many large breeds, Giant Schnauzers can be prone to hip dysplasia and joint issues; thus, minimizing stress on their limbs during travel is crucial. Ensure current health certifications and detailed medical records are on hand to assist in health monitoring and addressing any concerns en route.

How to prepare your Giant Schnauzer 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

Secure and update all necessary health and vaccination records. Have these accessible throughout the trip to ensure compliance with various transport regulations, providing peace of mind for both owner and transporter.

Identification and Tracking

A microchip and current tags are essential identification tools. Additionally, consider a GPS collar for real-time tracking to stay connected to your Giant Schnauzer’s whereabouts during the journey.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

A blanket or toy from home can greatly relieve stress by providing a well-loved scent. This continuity offers a sense of security to your Giant Schnauzer in an ever-changing environment.

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 Giant Schnauzer

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Bring familiar toys and consider an anxiety vest if your Giant Schnauzer is prone to stress. Employ calming techniques such as soft music or a gentle voice to soothe nervousness.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular stops to stretch and relieve themselves, mimicking their usual routine as closely as possible. This not only addresses their physical needs but also aids in reducing travel anxiety.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain a stable environment—not too hot, not too cold—and provide constant access to fresh water to ensure your Giant Schnauzer stays hydrated and comfortable.

Post Transportation Care for your Giant Schnauzer

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Provide a quiet space for your Giant Schnauzer to decompress post-journey. Offer familiar items and gently introduce them to their new surroundings to help them acclimatize at their own pace.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Monitor for any signs of distress or illness post-travel. Consult with a vet if you observe unusual behavior or health concerns as your Giant Schnauzer settles into their new home.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establish their familiar routine quickly to help your Giant Schnauzer adapt. Consistency is vital in maintaining their well-being, ensuring they feel secure, loved, and part of the family.
