What determines the cost of Mountain Cur shipping

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

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 Mountain Cur, 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 Mountain Cur 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.

Mountain Cur: The Hardy Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Mountain Cur is a breed with deep American roots, originally bred by settlers in the mountains of Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee to protect homesteads and hunt. These dogs are known for their tough, courageous demeanor, making them perfect for dealing with wild game and rugged landscapes. Mountain Curs are highly intelligent, loyal, and energetic, with a demeanor that can range from fiercely protective to affectionately playful. With such an active and responsive temperament, Mountain Curs require mental stimulation and reassurance during transport to ensure a calm and safe journey.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically, Mountain Curs stand between 16-26 inches tall and weigh between 30-60 pounds. They're muscular and agile, necessitating regular exercise to maintain their physical and mental well-being. When transporting a Mountain Cur, ample space is a must to accommodate their solid build. Moreover, due to their active nature, breaks for physical activity should be planned into travel schedules to help expel energy and reduce stress.

Common Health Considerations

While generally healthy, Mountain Curs may be prone to conditions such as hip dysplasia or eye disorders. For travel, it's imperative to have up-to-date health documentation, including vaccination records against rabies, distemper, and more, as per interstate and airline regulations. A pre-travel veterinary check-up can help identify potential issues, ensuring your pet's comfort and safety en route.

How to prepare your Mountain Cur 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 a file containing your Mountain Cur's medical history and a record of vaccinations, specifically for rabies, distemper, parvovirus, and bordetella. An official veterinarian health certificate is often required for interstate travel, so keep these documents easily accessible throughout the journey.

Identification and Tracking

Ensure your Mountain Cur has a sturdy collar with ID tags that include their name and your contact information. A microchip is strongly recommended as a permanent form of identification, along with considering GPS-equipped collars or tags that can provide real-time tracking for additional peace of mind.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Packing items that smell like home—a favorite blanket or a well-loved toy—can greatly reduce stress by providing a sense of familiarity. These comfort items should be placed within your pet's carrier or travel space, to create a comforting and secure environment.

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 Mountain Cur

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To minimize travel anxiety for your Mountain Cur, introduce them to their carrier or vehicle well in advance with positive reinforcement. During travel, items such as anxiety vests or familiar toys can provide additional comfort. Soft music or pheromone sprays are also viable options for creating a relaxing atmosphere.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Mountain Curs are high-energy dogs that require physical activity. Plan for regular stops on long trips, allowing them to stretch, exercise, and relieve themselves. A safe rule of thumb is a break every 2-3 hours, but keep an eye on your dog's cues to adjust as necessary.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Ensure the travel environment is well-ventilated and kept at a comfortable temperature. Avoid extreme heat or cold, and provide constant access to fresh water to prevent dehydration. Monitoring your Mountain Cur for signs of overheating or cold stress is critical to their well-being during the journey.

Post Transportation Care for your Mountain Cur

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Once the trip is over, give your Mountain Cur time to adjust to its new environment. Begin by exploring a small area, gradually expanding to larger spaces. Familiar items like their blanket or toy should be present to provide a sense of security. Stay close during this adjustment period to offer reassurance.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After arrival, monitor your Mountain Cur for signs of stress or illness, such as appetite changes, lethargy, or digestive issues. If any concerning signs arise, seek veterinary care promptly.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a routine quickly after travel helps your Mountain Cur to settle in. Consistent feeding times, exercise, and affection will contribute to their adaptability and overall health, providing a smooth transition to their new home.
