What determines the cost of Old English Sheepdog shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Old English Sheepdog.

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 Old English Sheepdog, 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 Old English Sheepdog 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.

Old English Sheepdog: The Cheerful Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Old English Sheepdog boasts an illustrious past rooted in the pastoral life of England, famously herding sheep and cattle. Recognized for their easygoing nature and affable demeanor, these fluffy giants radiate friendliness and get along famously with both adults and children. Due to their inclination for companionship, it is crucial to consider their need for human interaction and mental engagement when planning their travel arrangements. To ensure their well-being on the road, a journey with periodic social breaks and attention is paramount.

Size and Physical Needs

Noteworthy for their ample and robust stature, Old English Sheepdogs typically weigh between 60-100 pounds. These dogs thrive on regular exercise to maintain physical and mental health, making them particularly energetic. When preparing to transport an Old English Sheepdog, ample space for comfort and movement is a necessity. Along with stretch opportunities, access to water and a cool environment are essential considerations to cater to their dense coat.

Common Health Considerations

Old English Sheepdogs are predisposed to certain breed-specific health concerns such as hip dysplasia and eye conditions. Prior to transportation, securing up-to-date health documentation and a veterinary clearance is prudent, to not only adhere to travel requirements but also to safeguard their health. Preventive measures should include protective measures against overheating and ensuring the availability of water at all times.

How to prepare your Old English Sheepdog 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

Essential health and vaccination records for an Old English Sheepdog must be assembled, ensuring they are current and readily available during transit. This documentation is not only a regulatory requirement but also a facilitator of prompt veterinary attention if necessary.

Identification and Tracking

Adequate identification, including a clearly legible tag on a well-fitting collar and an updated microchip, is indispensable for your Old English Sheepdog's safe travel. For additional security, consider a GPS tracking device to maintain awareness of your furry friend's whereabouts at all times.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To ease your Old English Sheepdog into their travel experience, familiar items such as a beloved toy or a blanket bearing the scent of home can work wonders. These items provide a sense of stability and homey comfort amidst the unfamiliarity of transit.

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 Old English Sheepdogs

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To mitigate anxiety for your Old English Sheepdog, incorporate reassuring items such as a favored toy or an anxiety vest. Pheromone sprays and gentle music can also create a serene environment. Familiarize your pet with their travel crate well in advance to build a positive association with the space.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Due to their high energy levels, it's recommended to allow your Old English Sheepdog a chance to stretch and relieve themselves approximately every four hours. These breaks also present an opportunity for coveted human interaction and playtime, contributing to a smoother travel experience.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Old English Sheepdogs are enveloped in thick fur and necessitate a cool, ventilated space for comfort. Regular access to fresh water is vital to prevent dehydration, particularly during warmer months or in heated spaces.

Post Transportation Care for your Old English Sheepdog

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Old English Sheepdogs adapt well to new settings, yet it is beneficial to introduce them gradually to their new environment. Maintaining a presence, providing familiar items, and exploring their new surroundings with them can alleviate stress and foster acclimatization.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After travel, observe your Old English Sheepdog for any signs of distress or ill-health. Prompt veterinary care is critical if any concerns arise. Their dense coat may hide symptoms or injuries, so a thorough post-travel check is advised.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a regular schedule for feeding, exercise, and bonding as soon as possible post-transit will contribute to your Old English Sheepdog's stability and overall happiness in their fresh start. Regular routines are the cornerstone of a content and well-adjusted pet.
