What determines the cost of Mastiff shipping

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

Mode of transportation

ratingGround travel

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 Mastiff, 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 Mastiff 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.

Mastiff: The Gentle Giants Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Mastiff, a breed with a noble lineage tracing back to ancient civilizations, was revered for its impressive size, protective instincts, and gentle demeanor. Historically, they were guardians and war dogs, yet despite their formidable appearance, Mastiffs are known today for their docile and affectionate temperament. These traits necessitate tailored travel arrangements to accommodate their calm yet alert disposition, ensuring that they don't become overprotective or anxious during transportation.

Size and Physical Needs

Mastiffs are among the largest dog breeds, with adults typically weighing between 130 to 220 pounds. Their colossal size means they require ample space to move and rest during transport. Exercise needs are moderate; however, they must stretch and walk regularly to maintain joint health. Special accommodations, like a spacious crate and vehicle, are necessary for their comfort and to prevent travel-related stress.

Common Health Considerations

Mastiffs are prone to hip and elbow dysplasia, heart conditions, and bloating. Therefore, health documentation, such as proof of recent veterinary checks, should be obtained before travel. Precautionary measures, including a travel-friendly feeding schedule and familiarity with the nearest veterinary services along the route, are essential for a safe journey.

How to prepare your Mastiff 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 your Mastiff's vaccinations are current, and carry an official health certificate signed by a vet within 30 days of travel. Keep these documents readily available, as they may be required at checkpoints or in case of an emergency.

Identification and Tracking

Make sure your Mastiff has a secure collar with an ID tag that includes your contact information. Additionally, confirm that their microchip database is up-to-date, and consider a GPS tracker for an added layer of security during the move.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To help your Mastiff remain relaxed, bring along its favorite blanket, toy, or piece of your clothing. Familiar scents act as a natural comforter, reducing stress and promoting a sense of security.

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 Mastiff

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Due to their sensitive nature, Mastiffs can experience anxiety when traveling. Keep their favorite toys on hand, consider an anxiety vest if they respond well to pressure therapy, and employ calming techniques such as soft music or regular comforting interactions.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular breaks every 2-3 hours to allow your Mastiff to exercise and relieve itself. This will help prevent restlessness and accidents, promoting a healthier and more pleasant travel experience.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Mastiffs can overheat quickly due to their large size and should not be exposed to high temperatures for extended periods. Ensure the vehicle's climate control is adequately set and provide constant access to fresh water, monitoring for signs of overheating or dehydration.

Post Transportation Care for your Mastiff

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Mastiffs may display hesitation or discomfort in new environments. Give them time to explore at their own pace, provide familiar toys and bedding to ease the transition, and maintain a calm demeanor to reassure them.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After travel, watch for any changes in behavior or appetite that could indicate health issues. Consult with a vet if you have any concerns, especially if your Mastiff shows persistent signs of distress or discomfort.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reinstate a regular feeding, exercise, and sleep routine as soon as possible. Consistency will help your Mastiff settle in and feel secure in their new environment, aiding their overall well-being.
