What determines the cost of Russell Terrier shipping

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

Mode of transportation

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.

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 Russell 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.

Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Russell 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.

Russell Terrier: The Energetic Companions

Origins and Temperament

Bred in England for fox hunting, Russell Terriers possess an enduring legacy for their intelligence, courage, and boundless energy. This small but mighty breed is known for its friendly and affectionate nature, making them both excellent family pets and tenacious working dogs. Their innate curiosity and bold temperament mean they require special attention during travel to accommodate their adventurous spirits and to ensure their safety.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically weighing between 9 to 15 pounds and standing about 10 to 12 inches tall at the shoulder, Russell Terriers are compact, muscular dogs. They require ample exercise to satisfy their high energy levels, which should be considered when arranging their transport. Spaces where they can move around and stretch periodically are vital for their comfort and well-being during transportation.

Common Health Considerations

Russell Terriers are generally healthy, but like all breeds, they're susceptible to certain health conditions such as patellar luxation and deafness. Before traveling, ensure all health documentation, including vaccination records, is up-to-date to prevent travel delays. Also, consider preventative measures such as flea and tick treatments to keep your terrier in top shape on the road.

How to prepare your Russell 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

Gather all necessary health and vaccination documents before travel, ensuring they are easily accessible. This includes proof of rabies vaccination, a health certificate from a veterinarian, and records of any other pertinent vaccinations or treatments.

Identification and Tracking

A microchipped Russell Terrier with up-to-date contact information is safer. Ensure your pet wears a collar with identification tags, and consider a GPS tracker for added security, especially given their propensity to chase and explore.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Packing a favorite blanket or toy can significantly reduce travel anxiety for your Russell Terrier. Items that smell like home can be incredibly comforting to your pet during the uncertainties of travel.

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 Russell Terrier

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Russell Terriers may experience stress during travel, so consider packing a favorite toy or an anxiety vest. Calming techniques and familiar routines can help alleviate their unease on the road.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Provide opportunities for regular movement and bathroom breaks. Depending on the age and activity level of your Russell Terrier, stops every 2-4 hours will allow them to expel energy and attend to their needs.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Russell Terriers can be sensitive to extreme temperatures. Maintain a comfortable environment inside the vehicle, and provide constant access to fresh water to ensure proper hydration.

Post Transportation Care for your Russell Terrier

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Once at their destination, give your Russell Terrier time to explore and acclimate at their own pace. Their adaptable nature will often prevail, but a gradual introduction to new spaces and faces is key to reducing post-travel anxiety.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Russell Terrier closely for any signs of stress or illness after the trip. Consult a veterinarian if there are any concerning symptoms or behavior changes.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a regular diet, exercise, and sleep routine is crucial for your Russell Terrier to feel secure and settled in their new environment. Continuity of care is essential for their long-term well-being.
