What determines the cost of Redbone Coonhound shipping

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

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.

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 Redbone Coonhound, 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 Redbone Coonhound 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.

Redbone Coonhound: The Adventurous Companions

Origins and Temperament

Originally bred for hunting games and known for their agility, the Redbone Coonhound is a quintessential American breed with roots deeply anchored in the southern United States. Their friendly and confident nature, combined with a keen hunting instinct, makes them energetic companions who bond deeply with their families. When it comes to transportation, these lovable hounds require special consideration due to their propensity for curiosity and their need for mental stimulation.

Size and Physical Needs

The Redbone Coonhound typically weighs between 45 to 70 pounds. Their muscular build and athletic prowess necessitate ample space to stretch and move during transport. Regular exercise is a must for this active breed, so transportation planning should include stops for physical activity. Providing a secure, well-ventilated crate with enough room to stand and turn is essential when traveling with your Coonhound.

Common Health Considerations

While robust and hearty, Redbone Coonhounds can be prone to hip dysplasia, eye disorders, and ear infections. When preparing for travel, ensure all health documentation, including a certificate from a veterinarian verifying fitness for transport, is updated and on hand. Preventative measures such as ear cleaning and health checks should be part of the pre-trip preparations.

How to prepare your Redbone Coonhound 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

Prior to any travel, verify that your Redbone Coonhound's vaccinations are current, particularly rabies, and have your veterinarian issue a health certificate. Always have copies of these documents easily accessible throughout your journey.

Identification and Tracking

A collar with ID tags, including your contact information, is fundamental. For extra security, consider a microchip and a GPS tracker to ensure your companion's whereabouts at all times during travel.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Bringing a beloved toy, blanket, or even a piece of your clothing can reassure your Redbone Coonhound and help reduce travel anxiety. Familiar scents act as a subtle reminder of home and provide emotional comfort.

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 Redbone Coonhound

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Calming techniques such as soft music, chew toys, or an anxiety vest can alleviate stress. Familiar routines and gentle reassurance from their owner can also ease a Coonhound's nerves during travel.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular stops, ideally every 3-4 hours, to allow your Redbone Coonhound to stretch, exercise, and relieve themselves. This not only caters to their physical needs but can also prevent restlessness and discomfort during a long journey.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Coonhounds can be sensitive to heat; maintain a cool temperature in the vehicle and provide constant access to fresh water. Direct air conditioning vents away from the crate to avoid drafts. Hydration is crucial, especially given their curiosity and activity level.

Post Transportation Care for your Redbone Coonhound

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Allow your Redbone Coonhound time to explore their new environment at their own pace. Familiar items and a set routine will help them settle in and understand that they're safe and at home.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After travel, closely observe your Coonhound for any signs of stress or health issues. Consult your veterinarian if you notice worrisome symptoms or behaviors.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a regular routine for feeding, walking, and playtime is vital for your Redbone Coonhound's well-being as they adapt to their new home. Consistency provides comfort and security for your precious pooch.
