What determines the cost of Great Pyrenees shipping

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

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 Great Pyrenees, 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 Great Pyrenees 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.

Great Pyrenees: The Majestic Companions

Origins and Temperament

Hailing from the Pyrenees mountains, these ancient guardian dogs have been protecting flocks for centuries. Today, the Great Pyrenees is known for its calm and patient demeanor, though it remains vigilant and protective. This breed's independent and calm nature means they often handle travel well but will require a transporter who respects their space and understands their watchful temperament.

Size and Physical Needs

Averaging between 85 to 160 pounds, the Great Pyrenees requires ample space for comfort during transport. Outfitted with a luxurious double coat, they thrive in cooler climates, so temperature control during transport is a must. Moderate exercise is sufficient for this breed, but their size necessitates accommodations like larger crates and sufficient room to stretch during stops.

Common Health Considerations

Common concerns include hip dysplasia, bloat, and bone cancer. Transportation services must ensure the availability of all health documentation and have a clear understanding of the symptoms of these conditions. Preventative measures such as regular stops and a stress-free environment can minimize risks.

How to prepare your Great Pyrenees 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

Ensuring that your Great Pyrenees is up-to-date with vaccinations is paramount. Have all health and vaccination records handy during travel to provide proof of medical care and in case of emergencies.

Identification and Tracking

A microchipped Great Pyrenees with a secure collar and up-to-date tags can provide peace of mind. Consider a GPS tracker for added security during transport.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

A familiar blanket or a beloved toy can significantly reduce travel anxiety. The comforting scents of home will help keep your Great Pyrenees more relaxed during the 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 Great Pyrenees

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Engaging their protective instinct with a familiar item like a toy can be an effective comfort measure. If your pet is prone to anxiety, discuss anxiety vests or calming techniques with your veterinarian before travel.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

The calm temperament of the Great Pyrenees doesn't diminish their need for regular bathroom breaks and light exercise. Plan for breaks every few hours to ensure their comfort and well-being.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Their thick coat means the Great Pyrenees can easily overheat. Ensure the vehicle is well-ventilated and not overly warm. Ample access to water throughout the trip is essential for hydration and preventing overheating.

Post Transportation Care for your Great Pyrenees

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Allow your Great Pyrenees to explore their new environment at their own pace. Their loyal and watchful nature may make them more sensitive to change, so allowing them to become the guardian of their new domain is key.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Great Pyrenees for any signs of stress or health issues following the move. Watch for appetite changes, lethargy, or anxiety, and consult with a veterinarian if concerns arise.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reestablishing a regular feeding, exercise, and grooming routine is critical for their well-being. Ongoing love and attention will ensure your Great Pyrenees thrives in their new home.
