What determines the cost of Lhasa Apso shipping

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

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 Lhasa Apso, 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 Lhasa Apso 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.

Lhasa Apso: The Cherished Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Lhasa Apso, an ancient breed steeped in mysticism, hails from the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet. Originally bred to keep guard within sacred temples, these dogs are alert, independent, and carry an air of dignity. With a history of being isolated protectors, Lhasa Apsos can exhibit a wary disposition towards strangers, a trait that can influence their travel needs. Ensuring a tranquil and safe environment during transportation will help to assuage their innate caution and propensity for vigilance.

Size and Physical Needs

Lhasa Apsos are small, robust dogs, weighing 12 to 18 pounds with a sturdy frame that belies their compact size. This breed requires regular grooming to manage their long, flowing coat. When it comes to activity, they enjoy brisk walks and playtime, but their exercise requirements are moderate. Travel accommodations should provide adequate space for movement and a comfortable area where they can rest and feel secure during the journey.

Common Health Considerations

Lhasa Apsos are generally healthy but can be prone to certain conditions such as keratitis, dry eye, and hip dysplasia. Documentation of recent health checks and proof of vaccinations is essential when traveling. To ensure a safe trip, make provisions for any special dietary needs and have a plan to address potential eye irritation due to air quality and ventilation during transport.

How to prepare your Lhasa Apso 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

Prepare your Lhasa Apso's health and vaccination records well in advance of travel. Keep these documents readily accessible to accommodate any on-the-spot checks and to provide peace of mind that your pet is fit to travel.

Identification and Tracking

A Lhasa Apso should have current identification tags and be microchipped. Consider utilizing GPS tracking devices for additional security, ensuring your compaion’s whereabouts are always known.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Packing a favorite blanket or toy infused with scents from home can be a tremendous comfort during transport. This olfactory reassurance helps soothe anxiety and provides a sense of normalcy for your Lhasa Apso.

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 Lhasa Apso

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To mitigate travel-induced stress, bring familiar items like specific toys or an anxiety vest. Employ calming techniques that work at home, such as soft music or gentle reassuring words, to comfort your Lhasa Apso on the road.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

During extended trips, maintain a routine that includes exercise and bathroom breaks. Plan for a quick walk every few hours to cater to your Lhasa Apso’s activity needs and to prevent restlessness.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain a comfortable temperature in the travel area, avoiding extremes that can distress your pet. Offer consistent access to fresh water to ensure your Lhasa Apso remains well hydrated throughout the journey.

Post Transportation Care for your Lhasa Apso

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Allowing your Lhasa Apso time to explore and become familiar with new surroundings at their own pace is crucial. Respect their need for reassurance and offer patience as they adapt to their new environment.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After reaching your destination, monitor your Lhasa Apso for signs of stress or illness, which may manifest post-travel. If health concerns arise, consult a veterinarian promptly to address any issues.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a routine is vital in helping your Lhasa Apso settle into their new home. Continuing with their regular care, nutrition, and exercise schedule will ensure a smoother transition and promote overall well-being.
