What determines the cost of Schipperke shipping

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

rating
Mode of transportation

ratingGround travel

Cost $$$

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 Schipperke, 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 Schipperke 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.

Schipperke: The Energetic Companions

Origins and Temperament

Known for their mischievous spirit and keen intelligence, the Schipperke breed hails from Belgium, originally bred as a watchdog and vermin hunter. This small, agile dog is full of curiosity and spunk, which can translate to a high-energy travel companion. Their alert nature makes them sensitive to changes in their environment, potentially affecting their comfort levels during travel. Understanding their background and temperament is key to providing the best care on their journey.

Size and Physical Needs

Weighing in between 10 to 16 pounds, Schipperkes are compact but active dogs that require regular exercise to stay happy and healthy. Their small size makes them easier to transport, though their boundless energy means they need opportunities to stretch and play during stops. Proper accommodations, such as a secure carrier with room to move, and comfort items, are essential to meet their physical needs while on the road.

Common Health Considerations

Schipperkes are a generally hardy breed, but they can be predisposed to certain genetic health conditions such as Patellar Luxation and Hypothyroidism. Ensure your Schipperke is cleared for travel by a veterinarian, and all health documentation, especially proof of recent vaccinations and treatments, is in order. Precautions like motion-sickness medication may also be considered under veterinary guidance.

How to prepare your Schipperke 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

Gathering and organizing all health and vaccination records before transport is crucial. Your Schipperke should be up to date on all vaccines, and you'll need to provide health certificates, especially if you're crossing state lines. Keep a copy of these records on hand throughout your travels.

Identification and Tracking

A reliable means of identification like a securely fastened collar with an ID tag should always be on your Schipperke. We recommend considering a microchip for permanent identification. If desired, a GPS tracker attached to the collar can offer additional peace of mind.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To reduce stress, pack items that smell like home—perhaps a favorite blanket or toy. A shirt with your scent can also be a soothing item for your Schipperke to snuggle with during transport.

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 Schipperke

Managing Anxiety and Stress

The spirited Schipperke may exhibit anxiety during travel. Portable anxiety vests, a well-loved toy, or even calming pheromone sprays can offer further comfort. Establish a quiet environment and maintain a calm demeanor to help ease their nerves.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Schedule breaks for exercise and bathroom every few hours, as Schipperkes are high-energy dogs. Use a leash and a harness for better control, especially in unfamiliar settings, allowing them to burn off energy and reduce restlessness during transport.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Schipperkes have a thick double coat that can cause them to overheat, so maintaining a comfortable and cool environment is important. Provide access to clean water at all times to ensure hydration and plan for climate-controlled accommodations if necessary.

Post Transportation Care for your Schipperke

Adjustment to New Surroundings

After transport, allow your Schipperke to acclimate at their own pace. Offer familiar items from home to ease the transition into new surroundings. Provide quiet spaces where they can retreat and feel secure as they settle in.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Post-travel, keep an eye on your Schipperke for any signs of distress or illness. Should there be any concerns, contacting a veterinarian promptly is advised. Watch for changes in behavior, appetite, and activity levels.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a routine is vital for your Schipperke's sense of security and well-being. Continue with regular feeding, play, and exercise schedules to help them adapt to their new environment seamlessly.
