What determines the cost of Irish Setter shipping

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

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 Irish 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 Irish 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.

Irish Setter: The Enthusiastic Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Irish Setter is a breed steeped in history, originating from 18th-century Ireland as a gun dog, renowned for its speed, elegance, and keen nose. Possessing an affectionate, playful, and energetic temperament, these dogs require special attention during travel to accommodate their zest for life. The inherent curiosity and sociability of an Irish Setter mean that they benefit from engaging and comforting transport experiences that cater to their emotional wellbeing.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically ranging from 55 to 70 pounds and standing up to 27 inches tall, the Irish Setter is a sizable breed requiring ample space during transport. Regular exercise is a must, so space for stretching and movement is essential. Consideration for their luxurious coats and the propensity to overheat is also vital, necessitating a climate-controlled environment to ensure their comfort en route.

Common Health Considerations

Irish Setters are prone to conditions like hip dysplasia and bloat; hence, ensuring a comfortable travel posture and timing meals appropriately is crucial. Prior to transportation, health certificates and proof of vaccinations must be in order, alongside any specific medications and preventative measures such as flea and tick prophylactic treatments.

How to prepare your Irish 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

Necessary health and vaccination records for Irish Setters include rabies, DHLP, parvovirus, and kennel cough. Maintain these documents in a readily accessible format, as they are crucial for ensuring a smooth and safe transit.

Identification and Tracking

A secure collar with tags, a microchip registration, and considering a GPS tracker are best practices to ensure your Irish Setter is identifiable and trackable at any point during the journey.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Including a favorite blanket, toy, or piece of your clothing can significantly alleviate stress by providing comfort through familiar scents, making the journey more soothing for your pet.

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 Irish Setter

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To assist an Irish Setter with travel-related anxiety, familiarize them with their travel crate before the journey, consider anxiety vests for calming, and don't forget a comforting toy. Gentle music and frequent reassurance from the driver can also have a soothing effect.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

A consistent schedule with regular breaks every 2-3 hours for exercise and relieving themselves is recommended. This helps in managing their energy levels and contributes to a more pleasant travel experience.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain a comfortable temperature with air circulation, avoiding extremes. Adequate fresh water should be available at all times to ensure hydration, with spill-proof containers recommended.

Post Transportation Care for your Irish Setter

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Following transport, create a quiet space with familiar items for your Irish Setter to retreat to. Allow them the time to explore their new environment at their own pace, offering comfort and reassurance throughout the adjustment period.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Irish Setter for any signs of travel fatigue or stress. If any worrisome symptoms arise such as persistent lethargy, lack of appetite, or unusual behavior, consult a veterinarian promptly.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reinstate a regular feeding, exercise, and rest routine as soon as possible to help your Irish Setter settle. Consistency is key to ensuring their swift adaptation and well-being post-travel.
