What determines the cost of Irish Terrier shipping

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

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 Irish Terrier, 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 Terrier 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 Terrier: The Spirited Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Irish Terrier, known for its fiery red coat and spirited personality, hails from Ireland with a history steeped in versatility and courage. Originally bred for hunting and messaging in wartime, their loyal and protective nature makes them an excellent family pet. Because of their high energy and alertness, Irish Terriers may require special attention during travel to accommodate their need for mental stimulation and exercise.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically, Irish Terriers range from 18 to 25 pounds, standing about 18 inches at the shoulder. Robust and sturdy, they possess a considerable amount of energy and therefore require ample exercise. When traveling, it's crucial to provide a spacious carrier and plan for regular physical activity breaks to satisfy their energetic demeanor.

Common Health Considerations

Generally healthy, Irish Terriers may nevertheless be prone to certain genetic conditions such as hip dysplasia or eye issues. To ensure a safe journey, obtain health clearance and carry any necessary health documentation. Pre-travel veterinary checks and updates on preventative medications are also key to a smooth journey.

How to prepare your Irish Terrier 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

Before transport, secure current health and vaccination records for your Irish Terrier. These documents are often a regulatory requirement and provide peace of mind that your pet is fit to travel.

Identification and Tracking

Proper identification, including a securely fastened collar with tags and a microchip, can help ensure the safety of your Irish Terrier during transit. Additionally, consider equipping your pet with a GPS tracker for real-time location updates.

  • Collars and leashes
  • Waste bags
  • Medication
