What determines the cost of Goldendoodle shipping

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

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 Goldendoodle, 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 Goldendoodle 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.

Goldendoodle: The Affable Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Goldendoodle is a charming hybrid breed that emerged in the late 20th century, combining the intelligence and hypoallergenic qualities of Poodles with the friendly and devoted nature of Golden Retrievers. Known for their easy-going temperament, Goldendoodles make for excellent travel companions. However, their sensitivity to their surroundings and need for affection means they require a bit more attention on the road to mitigate stress.

Size and Physical Needs

Goldendoodles vary widely in size, from 15 to 100 pounds, depending on their Poodle parentage. They are energetic dogs that need regular exercise and can be prone to restlessness if confined for too long. When transporting a Goldendoodle, ample space and opportunities for movement are vital for their well-being. Due to their thick fur, a climate-controlled environment is also necessary to prevent overheating during travel.

Common Health Considerations

While generally healthy, Goldendoodles may inherit common ailment predispositions from their parent breeds, including hip dysplasia and ear infections. To ensure a safe journey, up-to-date health documentation is required, and preventative measures such as flea and tick medication should be kept current.

How to prepare your Goldendoodle 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

Essential health and vaccination records, including rabies certification and a recent health certificate, should be on hand during your Goldendoodle's transit. This documentation ensures compliance with state and interstate travel regulations and aids in quick veterinary assistance if necessary.

Identification and Tracking

Proper identification through a collar with tags and an up-to-date microchip is crucial. Additionally, using a GPS tracker can offer peace of mind by allowing the pet owner to monitor their furry friend's location in real-time.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Packing a beloved blanket or toy can provide a sense of security to a Goldendoodle during travel. An item with the owner's scent can also reassure and reduce anxiety in unfamiliar situations.

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 Goldendoodle

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Bringing along a Goldendoodle's favorite toy or offering an anxiety vest can be invaluable in managing travel-induced anxiety. Familiarize your pet with the travel crate or vehicle beforehand to ensure comfort and safety during the trip.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

A Goldendoodle should have the opportunity for light exercise and bathroom breaks every 3-4 hours during transportation. This helps prevent restlessness and maintains a sense of routine.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintaining a cool, ventilated environment is essential for this breed's comfort. Ensure your Goldendoodle has access to fresh water at all times, and monitor for signs of overheating or dehydration.

Post Transportation Care for your Goldendoodle

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Goldendoodles generally adapt well to new environments. Ease the transition by gradually introducing new spaces, retaining familiar items, and providing lots of affection.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Goldendoodle for any signs of stress or illness after travel and consult a veterinarian if any health concerns arise. Pay particular attention to their eating, drinking, and elimination habits.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a regular schedule for meals, exercise, and sleep is critical for a Goldendoodle’s sense of security. Consistent routines help your dog understand that they are in a safe place, allowing them to settle in more quickly.
