What determines the cost of Rottweiler shipping

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

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 Rottweiler, 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 Rottweiler 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.

Rottweiler: The Loyal Companions

Origins and Temperament

Rottweilers hail from a lineage of ancient Roman drover dogs, tracing back to a time when they herded cattle and protected homesteads. These robust dogs have evolved to be steadfast, confident, and courageous, all while showing an innate loyalty to their families. Their protective instinct can make them wary of strangers, which translates to specific travel needs where trust and familiarity with the transporter are paramount.

Size and Physical Needs

Rottweilers are large, muscular dogs, typically weighing between 85 to 130 pounds. They require regular exercise to maintain their physical health and mental well-being. During transport, ample space to stretch, robust crates, and secure handling are vital to accommodate their size and strength. Given their physical prowess, a Rottweiler's travel accommodation must be durable and escape-proof.

Common Health Considerations

Rottweilers, like any large breed, can be prone to hip dysplasia, heart conditions, and bloat (gastric dilatation-volvulus). To ensure safe travel, proper health documentation regarding these conditions and a clear health history must be provided. Preventative measures, such as avoiding heavy exercise right before travel, can help mitigate the risk of health complications on the road.

How to prepare your Rottweiler 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 transport, it is crucial to have updated health and vaccination records readily available, ensuring peace of mind for both the pet owner and transporter. These documents should be compliant with state regulations to guarantee a smooth journey.

Identification and Tracking

A Rottweiler should have a microchip registered to the correct owner, as well as durable tags with up-to-date contact information. For added security, GPS tracking collars can provide real-time location updates during travel.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Bringing items like a favored blanket or a toy can immensely comfort a Rottweiler during transport. Items imbued with home scents can significantly reduce travel anxiety by providing a sense of familiarity and security.

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 Rottweiler

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Even a well-trained Rottweiler can experience travel-induced stress. Introduce travel crates well in advance, practice short trips if possible, and consider anxiety-reducing items like vests or calming supplements after consulting with a vet.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

A Rottweiler needs frequent physical activity, so during transit, plan for regular stops that allow for exercise and relief. This not only caters to their physical requirements but can also alleviate travel stress.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Rottweilers are susceptible to overheating due to their size and coat. Keep the vehicle at a comfortable temperature and ensure continuous access to fresh water to avoid dehydration and overheating.

Post Transportation Care for your Rottweiler

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Rottweilers can be territorial and might take time to adjust to new environments. After transportation, provide them with a quiet space, introduce them slowly to new areas, and remain patient as they explore their new home.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Post-travel, keep an eye out for any signs of distress or illness. If any concerning symptoms or behaviors persist, seek veterinary attention to rule out any travel-related health issues.

Continuing Care and Routine

Establishing a predictable routine is key to helping a Rottweiler settle in. Regular walks, meal times, and play sessions provide a sense of security and help maintain their well-being after the move.
