What determines the cost of Pekingese shipping

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

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 Pekingese, 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 Pekingese 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.

Pekingese: The Regal Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Pekingese breed, a symbol of ancient Chinese nobility, heralds from the lap of luxury—sitting at the feet of emperors and empresses in the imperial palaces. Historically, these dogs have been revered for their lion-like appearance, reflecting bravery and dignity. Pekingese are known for their affectionate and loyal temperament, though they can exhibit a strong-willed streak, characteristic of their noble lineage. When traveling, consider their sensitivity to stress and the need for a calm, protective environment to mirror the serenity of their ancestral imperial courts.

Size and Physical Needs

Pekingese are petite, ranging from 7 to 14 pounds, with a distinctive flat face and a profuse mane of hair surrounding their necks. Their compact size belies their daily activity needs, which includes moderate exercise to maintain a healthy weight and mood. Special accommodations during transport must consider their brachycephalic (short-snout) structure, which can make temperature regulation and breathing problematic. A cool, well-ventilated setting is paramount for a Pekingese's well-being on the road.

Common Health Considerations

Pekingese can be predisposed to certain health conditions, such as brachycephalic syndrome, eye injuries due to their prominent eyes, and heart problems. While preparing for transport, ensure that all health documents, including vaccination records and certificates, are up to date and easily accessible. Preventative measures include a secure carrier, avoiding extreme temperature exposure, and careful handling to prevent injury.

How to prepare your Pekingese 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

Before embarking, confirm that you have gathered all required health and vaccination documentation for your Pekingese. This includes a certificate of veterinary inspection if crossing state lines. Keep these records handy throughout the trip for easy reference and potential inspections.

Identification and Tracking

Ensure that your Pekingese wears a collar with an ID tag stating your contact information. Additionally, consider a registered microchip and a GPS tracker as fail-safes should your pet manage to slip away during transport.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Include comfort items like a beloved blanket or toy in your Pekingese's travel kit. Familiar scents can substantially reduce travel-related stress and provide a sense of security during the journey.

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 Pekingese

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To mitigate anxiety, surround your Pekingese with familiar objects. Offering a snug anxiety vest or engaging in calming techniques like quiet, soothing sounds can also help accustom them to the travel experience.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular stops to allow your Pekingese to walk and relieve themselves—every 2-3 hours is generally suitable. Consistent breaks also offer mental stimulation and stretch time, necessary for their overall comfort.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Maintaining a cool and stable temperature within their space is crucial given their brachycephalic nature. Keep fresh water available at all times to ensure your Pekingese stays hydrated, particularly in warm temperatures or during air travel.

Post Transportation Care for your Pekingese

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Give your Pekingese time to acclimate to their new surroundings post-transport. Stay close, provide reassurance, and limit overwhelming stimuli until they seem at ease with their new environment.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Pekingese for any signs of distress or illness after travel and contact a veterinarian if there are any concerns. Look for changes in appetite, behavior, or respiration, which may warrant professional advice.

Continuing Care and Routine

Once settled, re-establishing a regular routine including feeding, grooming, and exercise is crucial for your Pekingese's sense of stability and well-being in their new home.
