What determines the cost of Gordon Setter shipping

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

Mode of transportation

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 Gordon 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 Gordon 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.

Gordon Setter: The Aristocratic Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Gordon Setter originates from Scotland, where they were bred as bird dogs in the 17th century. Known for their loyalty and affectionate nature, they're often described as dignified yet enthusiastic. This breed is intelligent, eager to please, and can sometimes be assertive, showing a deep bond with their family. When traveling, their sensitive nature means they thrive on companionship and consistency. Routine and reassurance are key to prevent anxiety during transit.

Size and Physical Needs

Gordon Setters are large dogs, with males standing 24 to 27 inches and females slightly smaller. They typically weigh between 45 and 80 pounds. Given their active disposition, they require regular exercise to stay healthy. During transport, ample space to stretch out and lie down is crucial, as well as opportunities for physical activity. Well-ventilated crates that allow movement, yet provide safety and security, ensure their comfort on the move.

Common Health Considerations

Gordon Setters may face issues like hip dysplasia, bloat, or eye conditions. All pet transport requires up-to-date health documentation. It's also wise to have your vet perform a check-up before any trip, ensuring your pet is fit to travel. Prevention of stress-related conditions is crucial, which means secure, calm transportation is a must for these sensitive animals.

How to prepare your Gordon 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

Essential records include proof of rabies vaccination and a health certificate from a vet dated within ten days of travel. Keep digital copies accessible and physical copies on hand during the journey.

Identification and Tracking

An updated microchip registration is critical, alongside a secure collar with ID tags. Consider a GPS tracker, so you can monitor your Gordon Setter in real-time during shipping.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To soothe your pet, pack items that smell like home—blankets, toys, or a piece of your clothing. Familiar scents work wonders for a Gordon Setter's well-being while in transit.

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 Gordon Setter

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Try a well-fitted anxiety vest if your dog is prone to stress. Share your Gordon Setter's preference with the transporter, whether that's a specific snack, toy, or type of music that soothes them. Consistency with their home routine can also help minimize stress.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

This breed needs regular exercise to stay calm. Plan for a minimum of a 15-minute walk every 4-6 hours and scheduled bathroom breaks throughout the day during transportation.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Gordon Setters have thick coats and can overheat more easily than other breeds. Ensure the vehicle's temperature is moderated and provide continual access to fresh water, replenishing it consistently throughout the journey.

Post Transportation Care for your Gordon Setter

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Offer your Gordon Setter time to explore their new home at their own pace. Maintain familiar routines from their pre-move schedule to ease the transition and provide comfort and stability.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Look for signs of appetite changes, discomfort, or distress after the movement. Revisit the vet for a follow-up to confirm that they haven't developed any health conditions post-travel.

Continuing Care and Routine

Patience and consistency in re-establishing a regular routine are key. Continue providing the dedicated care, exercise, and affection your Gordon Setter is accustomed to, maintaining their well-being and happiness in your shared new environment.
