What determines the cost of Kerry Blue Terrier shipping

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

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 Kerry Blue 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.

rating
Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Kerry Blue 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.

Kerry Blue Terrier: The Energetic and Loyal Companions

Origins and Temperament

Hailing from the Emerald Isle, Kerry Blue Terriers are a breed of rich Irish heritage, originally bred for hunting and farm work. Known for their distinctive soft, wavy coat of blue-grey hue, these terriers are spirited, intelligent, and often display a mischievous streak. They possess a loyal and affectionate nature, making them excellent family companions. When it comes to travel, their alert and active disposition means they may require additional attention to stay calm and engaged during transportation.

Size and Physical Needs

Averaging between 18 to 19.5 inches in height at the shoulder and weighing about 30 to 40 pounds, Kerry Blues are medium-sized dogs. They are dynamic and require regular exercise to maintain their health and high spirits. Transporting a Kerry Blue Terrier should factor in their need for space to move as well as opportunities for physical activity. Spacious travel crates and frequent stops for stretching out are essential for their wellbeing during travel.

Common Health Considerations

Responsible for their curly locks, the PNA gene also predisposes Kerry Blues to certain genetic conditions like keratopathies. Moreover, they can develop hip dysplasia and ear infections, which should be closely monitored, especially during travel. Necessary health documentation, including a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI), is required for travel, alongside any breed-specific preventative measures to assure a Kerry Blue's comfort and safety on the road.

How to prepare your Kerry Blue 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

Ensure you have an up-to-date record of your Kerry Blue's vaccinations, along with any other pertinent health records. During transit, keeping these documents easily accessible is vital in case of emergencies or if required for verification at checkpoints.

Identification and Tracking

It's essential for a traveling Kerry Blue to be microchipped and to wear a secure collar with updated ID tags. To add an extra layer of security, consider equipping your furry friend with a GPS tracker to monitor their location in real time during transit.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

The familiarity of a favorite blanket or toy can significantly reduce stress for a Kerry Blue on the move. Items that carry the scent of home can provide comfort and a sense of security throughout 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 Kerry Blue Terrier

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Kerry Blue Terriers may experience stress during travel. Introduce a safe space, like a travel crate, ahead of time, to help them feel secure. You can also consider anxiety vests or natural calming supplements, but always consult your vet first. Familiar toys and treats can also offer distraction and reassurance.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Maintaining a Kerry Blue's active routine is crucial, even on the road. Plan for regular stops to allow your pet to exercise and attend to their bathroom needs. This will help to manage their energy levels and keep them comfortable during the journey.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Be mindful of the temperature in your pet's travel environment. Keeping a Kerry Blue cool and well-ventilated is important, as is ensuring they have access to water at all times to stay hydrated.

Post Transportation Care for your Kerry Blue Terrier

Adjustment to New Surroundings

It's natural for Kerry Blue Terriers to take some time to adjust to new environments. Be patient, give them space, and introduce them to their new surroundings gradually. Consistency with their usual schedule can help in making the transition smoother.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Post-travel, closely monitor your Kerry Blue for any signs of distress or illness. If anything seems off or concerning, don't hesitate to consult a veterinarian to ensure their health remains intact after the move.

Continuing Care and Routine

After settling in, establish a routine for your Kerry Blue that aligns with their needs for exercise, engagement, and diet. Consistency will provide your pet with a sense of security and allow them to thrive in their new environment.
