What determines the cost of Maltipoo shipping

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

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 Maltipoo, 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 Maltipoo 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.

Maltipoo: The Delightfully Affectionate Companions

Origins and Temperament

Maltipoos, the charming hybrids of Maltese and Poodle, inherit the intelligence and playfulness from both breeds. Born from a lineage bred for companionship, they exhibit loving and gentle temperaments. Historically, both Poodles and Maltese dogs have found favor among the aristocracy, their character shaped for human interaction and affection. When considering travel for Maltipoos, remember that their sociable nature may make them prone to separation anxiety. Their emotional sensitivity demands a transport environment where reassurance and comfort are abundantly provided.

Size and Physical Needs

Tailored for laps and living rooms, Maltipoos stand at a petite 8 to 14 inches tall, weighing between 5 to 20 pounds. Though they exhibit bursts of energy and play, their exercise needs are moderate, generally fulfilled with daily walks and active playtime. Their small stature requires secure transport carriers that shield them from potential injuries, and ample cushioning ensures their delicate frames are well protected during travel.

Common Health Considerations

Maltipoos may encounter typical hybrid health issues, such as knee joint problems and dental concerns. Always secure up-to-date health documentation and carry it during transport, ensuring any emergency can be informed by their medical history. A well-ventilated space during travel minimizes overheating risks, and having a first-aid kit tailored to their breed-specific needs can be a prudent preventative measure.

How to prepare your Maltipoo 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

Prioritize gathering all pertinent veterinary records, ensuring vaccination details are current and complete. These documents are not only potentially required by transport regulations but are critical for addressing health emergencies on the road.

Identification and Tracking

A Maltipoo's collar should include tags with up-to-date contact information. Additionally, ensure your furry friend is microchipped, and consider investing in a GPS tracker for the journey to provide that extra layer of security.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Traveling can be unsettling, so packing a Maltipoo's favorite blanket or toy can offer a sense of home. Items bearing a familiar scent can be a profoundly soothing presence during a potentially stressful time.

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 Maltipoo

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To soothe nerves, pack a beloved toy or an article of clothing that smells like home. Consider a canine anxiety vest for soothing pressure, and familiarize your pet with it before the trip. Calming treats or sounds may also ease the journey.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Schedule stops every 2-3 hours for exercise and alleviate pent-up energy. These breaks also provide much-needed opportunities for potty time, maintaining comfort and cleanliness.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintain a vehicle temperature appropriate for a small breed with a delicate coat such as the Maltipoo, avoiding extremes. Offer room temperature water at rest stops to ward off dehydration.

Post Transportation Care for your Maltipoo

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Acclimating to new spaces requires patience. Spend quality time with your Maltipoo in their new environment. Engage in gentle play and offer treats as they explore, allowing them to establish a sense of security.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Maltipoo for any signs of travel-related stress or illness. Signs such as listlessness, appetite changes, or digestive upset warrant a visit to the vet. Remember that stress can manifest physically in these sensitive dogs.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a consistent routine for feeding, walking, and sleeping can provide immense comfort to your Maltipoo. Keep up with regular grooming, vet visits, and show affection to ensure your companion thrives in their new home.
