What determines the cost of Havanese shipping

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

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 Havanese, 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 Havanese 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.

Havanese: The Affectionate Companions

Origins and Temperament

Native to Cuba, the Havanese breed is swathed in a rich history as the beloved lapdog of Cuban aristocracy. With their friendly demeanor and playful spirit, Havanese dogs are the epitome of an ideal companion. Their adaptability but also need for companionship means they may require extra attention and reassurance during travel to prevent anxiety.

Size and Physical Needs

Averaging between 7 to 13 pounds, Havanese are conveniently sized for travel. Despite their small stature, they have a spunky energy that necessitates regular exercise. Transportation accommodations must ensure enough space for comfort and periodic movement, as well as support for their luxurious coat to prevent matting.

Common Health Considerations

Havanese can have hereditary health issues like hip dysplasia and cataracts. Ensuring all necessary health documentation and vaccines are up-to-date is key for travel readiness. Preparing for a journey with planned medication and understanding of their specific health needs will promote a safe trip.

How to prepare your Havanese 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

Current health and vaccination records are a must-have for traveling with your Havanese. Keep electronic and physical copies handy to address any queries during transit promptly.

Identification and Tracking

A microchipped Havanese with a readable tag attached to their collar enhances security. It's advisable to utilize GPS tracking devices for added peace of mind during your fur companion's travel.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

A beloved toy, blanket, or item of clothing with a familiar scent should always accompany your Havanese on their journey, aiding in emotional support and stress management.

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 Havanese

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Familiar objects, a favored blanket or toy, can help cushion your Havanese against stress. Anxiety vests or calming chews might also provide comfort to your furry friend during the trip. Plan for soothing music or speak reassuringly when possible.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Schedule regular breaks for light exercise and bathroom needs—ideally every 3-4 hours to prevent discomfort and manage their lively energy levels.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain a comfortable and steady temperature in the travel environment, avoiding extreme heat or cold. Steady access to clean water will keep your Havanese well-hydrated and happy throughout the journey.

Post Transportation Care for your Havanese

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Once at their destination, introduce your Havanese gradually to their new settings. Offer plenty of affection to reassure them and allocate a designated space with familiar items to expedite their acclimation.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Keep a watchful eye on your dog's behavior and physical state post-travel. Any signs of distress or unusual behavior should prompt a consultation with a veterinarian.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reestablishing a predictable daily routine with regular meal times, walks, and play sessions will help your Havanese settle into their new home. Continuous care is essential to ensure the ongoing happiness and health of your cherished pet.
