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

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 Neapolitan 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.

Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Neapolitan 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.

Neapolitan Mastiff: The Majestic Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Neapolitan Mastiff originates from Italy, bred to be imposing guardians. With their history rooted in watching over estates and families, these gentle giants exhibit a calm yet vigilant temperament. They form deep bonds and can be protective, which can influence their travel experience. It’s crucial to ensure that their transportation maintains a sense of security, as their protective nature can cause them to be uneasy in unfamiliar settings.

Size and Physical Needs

Neapolitan Mastiffs are known for their massive build, ranging from 110 to 150 pounds or more. Due to their size, these dogs require ample space to stretch and rest comfortably during transport. Moderate exercise is recommended for them, so incorporating rest stops into travel plans is essential for their wellbeing. Accommodations for their unique physicality, such as secure, spacious crates or vehicle areas, are non-negotiable for their comfort.

Common Health Considerations

Common health issues for Neapolitan Mastiffs include joint conditions like hip dysplasia, heart issues, and skin infections. Health documentation, particularly a certificate of veterinary inspection, may be required, and these must be up-to-date to ensure your mastiff can travel safely. Preventative measures such as regular vet checks and a comfortable transport environment can mitigate travel risks.

How to prepare your Neapolitan 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 all health and vaccination records for your Neapolitan Mastiff are current prior to travel. Accessible copies of these documents are vital and may be requested for verification at any time during the journey.

Identification and Tracking

Proper identification is critical. An updated microchip and tags secured on your mastiff’s collar are the first step. For additional peace of mind, consider a GPS tracker that can attach to their collar, offering real-time updates on their location.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Bringing along a favored toy or blanket with the scents of home can be incredibly soothing for a Neapolitan Mastiff. These familiar items can provide an immense sense of comfort in a mobile 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 Neapolitan Mastiff

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Travel can be stressful, particularly for a sensitive breed like the Neapolitan Mastiff. Ensuring access to their favorite chew toy or an anxiety vest can help. Additionally, familiar scents and gentle reassurance are effective at keeping them calm.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Pencil in frequent stops for exercise and bathroom breaks considering the Neapolitan Mastiff’s size and energy levels. This keeps them relaxed and maintains good circulation during extended periods of travel.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Due to their dense fur and bulk, maintaining a cool environment is essential for preventing overheating in Neapolitan Mastiffs. Offering constant access to water will ensure they stay hydrated throughout their trip.

Post Transportation Care for your Neapolitan Mastiff

Adjustment to New Surroundings

After arriving, give your Neapolitan Mastiff time to explore their new surroundings at a comfortable pace. This approach will help them feel at ease as they gradually acclimate to their new home.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Transportation can be taxing. Watch for any signs of distress or health issues in the days following travel. Consult your veterinarian if you have any concerns.

Continuing Care and Routine

Neapolitan Mastiffs thrive on routine. Re-establishing a regular schedule for feeding, walks, and playtime is essential for their overall happiness and adjustment to a new environment.
