What determines the cost of Saluki shipping

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

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 Saluki, 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 Saluki 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.

Saluki: The Aristocratic Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Saluki is a breed steeped in history, revered since ancient times and often found in the company of royalty. These graceful dogs are known for their dignified and gentle demeanor, though they can be reserved with strangers. Their inherent independence and sensitivity require a patient approach to travel, as their stress levels may increase in unfamiliar situations.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically, Salukis range between 23 to 28 inches in height and weigh from 40 to 65 pounds. With a svelte, muscular build, they have significant exercise requirements that call for spacious accommodations during transport. Their long limbs necessitate careful support to avoid injury, and a comfortable, secure crate is essential for their wellbeing.

Common Health Considerations

Salukis may be prone to certain hereditary conditions such as heart issues and eye problems. As part of travel preparation, it’s important to have updated health documentation certifying the Saluki’s fitness for travel. Moreover, familiarizing your transport provider with any medical regimen is crucial to mitigate health risks en route.

How to prepare your Saluki 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

Ensure all health and vaccination records are current and on-hand. Documentation should be easily accessible during transit to help with any necessary vet visits or in case of emergencies.

Identification and Tracking

A Saluki should have a collar with identification tags and a microchip registered with your current contact information. Consider a GPS tracker for added security, especially given their propensity for chasing after prey.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Provide a blanket or toy that smells like home to help soothe your Saluki. Items carrying familiar scents can be significant stress-relievers and provide comfort in 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 Saluki

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Counteract stress by including a favorite toy or using an anxiety vest if your dog is accustomed to one. Calm, reassuring attention at intervals will also help keep anxiety at bay.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular stops to allow your Saluki to stretch its long legs and relieve itself. An exercise routine consistent with their usual schedule will help maintain their calm during the trip.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Salukis are sensitive to temperature, so it's important to maintain a comfortable environment—neither too hot nor too cold. Keep fresh water available at all times to ensure proper hydration throughout the journey.

Post Transportation Care for your Saluki

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Upon arrival, give your Saluki time to explore its new settings under your supervision to ease assimilation. Familiar objects and routines can assist in making this transition smoother.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Watch for any signs of illness or distress after travel, including changes in appetite or behavior. Consult your veterinarian if you have concerns about your Saluki's health post-transport.

Continuing Care and Routine

Establishing a regular routine of meals, walks, and rest can help your Saluki adjust to the new environment. Consistent, loving care will ensure that your companion thrives in its new home.
