What determines the cost of Pitt Bull Terrier shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Pitt Bull Terrier.

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 Pitt Bull Terrier, 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 Pitt Bull Terrier 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.

Pitt Bull Terrier: The Resilient Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Pitt Bull Terrier has a storied heritage, initially bred in England for bull-baiting and later as farming dogs and family companions upon their arrival in America. Known for their courage and strength, they exude a gentle disposition and fierce loyalty towards their owners. These dogs can be incredibly affectionate and people-oriented, making them sensitive to separation. Their travel needs must, therefore, consider their desire for human interaction and their need for a consistent presence to feel secure.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically, Pitt Bull Terriers range from 30 to 85 pounds, with a robust and muscular build. Known for their vitality, they require regular exercise and mental stimulation. During transportation, ample room to move and a comfortable area to rest is essential. Given their muscular frame, ensuring a stable base during travel prevents undue strain or injury.

Common Health Considerations

Pitt Bull Terriers may experience genetic health conditions like hip dysplasia, skin allergies, and heart disease. When scheduling transportation, confirm accurate health documentation per travel regulations and perform any preventative health measures such as flea and tick medication. It's key to provide your carrier with current health records and a clear understanding of your Pitt Bull Terrier's specific needs.

How to prepare your Pitt Bull Terrier 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

Secure and easily retrievable health and vaccination records are imperative during transportation. These documents not only ensure compliance with state and national regulations but also provide crucial information in case of an emergency during travel.

Identification and Tracking

A microchip and collar with tags are the first step in effective identification. For added security, consider using a GPS collar to monitor your Pitt Bull Terrier's location in real-time, providing peace of mind during the shipping process.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Including a well-loved toy or a blanket with the scent of home can greatly soothe your pet. This touch of familiarity can significantly reduce stress and help maintain emotional well-being during 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 Pitt Bull Terrier

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Alleviating travel anxiety in Pitt Bull Terriers might involve a comfort object, a pheromone diffuser, or soft music. An anxiety vest could also be helpful in providing a sense of security through gentle, constant pressure.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Scheduling periodic stops for physical activity is vital. A routine that closely matches the dog's usual schedule should be planned, usually every 4-6 hours, to alleviate stress and maintain comfort.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Ensuring a well-ventilated space with controlled temperature is crucial, as Pitt Bull Terriers can be prone to overheating. Ample water supply for hydration is also a necessity, with regularly scheduled water breaks.

Post Transportation Care for your Pitt Bull Terrier

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Once transport is complete, provide a quiet space with familiar items for your Pitt Bull Terrier. Allow exploration at their own pace to facilitate gradual adjustment and reduced anxiety in the new environment.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Post-travel, observe your Pitt Bull Terrier for any signs of stress or illness. Changes in appetite, behavior, or energy levels may warrant a veterinary check-up to ensure they haven't incurred any health issues during travel.

Continuing Care and Routine

Quickly re-establishing a regular routine with consistent feeding, exercise, and affection ensures a smoother transition. Continued care with attention to diet, health, and emotional well-being is the cornerstone of helping your Pitt Bull Terrier thrive in their new home.
