What determines the cost of Italian Greyhound shipping

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

rating
Mode of transportation

ratingGround travel

Cost $$$

Time ⏱⏱

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.

rating
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.

rating
Pet size

Smaller pets are easier – and less expensive – to transport. If you’re flying your Italian Greyhound, 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.

rating
Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Italian Greyhound 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.

Italian Greyhound: The Aristocratic Companions

Origins and Temperament

With roots tracing back to ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome, the Italian Greyhound is a true embodiment of elegance and grace. Bred for nobility and often depicted in Renaissance paintings, these slender canines are affectionate, intelligent, and thrive on companionship. Their sensitive nature means they are particularly receptive to their environment, which makes careful planning for transport essential to accommodate their penchant for warmth and comfort.

Size and Physical Needs

Italian Greyhounds typically weigh between 7 to 14 pounds and stand about 13 to 15 inches tall at the shoulder. While they enjoy bursts of high-speed playtime, their delicate frame requires a safe space to lounge and nest during travel. Special care must be taken to cushion their ride, as they are prone to chilling and need a warm, draft-free environment.

Common Health Considerations

Italian Greyhounds are generally healthy, but as with any breed, they're susceptible to certain conditions like dental issues, bone fractures, and patellar luxation. Ensure all health documents, particularly proof of vaccinations and a recent vet check, are in order to facilitate a smooth travel experience. Pre-travel preparation should include a discussion with your vet about potential stress-related responses and how to mitigate them.

How to prepare your Italian Greyhound 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 non-negotiable for traveling with your Italian Greyhound. These documents should be readily available throughout transport to ensure compliance with state and interstate regulations, and to provide peace of mind that your pet is fit for travel.

Identification and Tracking

Proper identification including a microchip, a well-fitted collar, and a tag with your contact information is crucial for the safety and security of your Italian Greyhound. Considering their petite size and agility, the addition of GPS tracking can offer an extra layer of security during transportation.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Transporting a piece of home with your Italian Greyhound, such as a favourite blanket or toy, will help to soothe and provide comfort during the journey. Familiar scents can significantly ease anxiety, making them feel secure despite the changing surroundings.

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 Italian Greyhound

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Managing your Italian Greyhound's anxiety can include pre-travel training, soft music, and pheromone sprays. An anxiety vest or a snug garment can also provide a calming pressure. Ensure favorite toys are within reach to help distract and comfort them throughout the trip.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular stops that allow time for both exercise and bathroom breaks. Despite their petite stature, an Italian Greyhound's high metabolism calls for frequent opportunities to expel energy and relieve themselves, ideally every 3-4 hours.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintaining a steady, warm temperature is essential for the Italian Greyhound's thin skin and short coat. Additionally, keeping fresh water available at all times ensures they stay well-hydrated during their journey.

Post Transportation Care for your Italian Greyhound

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Introduce your Italian Greyhound slowly to their new surroundings, allowing them time to acclimate at their own pace. Create a safe space similar to their transport environment to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Keep a close watch on your Italian Greyhound after arrival. Monitor their appetite, behavior, and stool quality, and consult a veterinarian if any concerns arise, as travel can sometimes trigger underlying health issues.

Continuing Care and Routine

Establishing a regular routine for feeding, exercise, and playtime as quickly as possible will help your Italian Greyhound feel secure. Consistent care and attention are key to ensuring their wellbeing and helping them settle into their new home.
