What determines the cost of Scottish Terrier shipping

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

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 Scottish 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 Scottish 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.

Scottish Terrier: The Dignified Companions

Origins and Temperament

Hailing from Scotland with a lineage dating back to the 1700s, Scottish Terriers, or "Scotties," were bred to hunt vermin on farms, bearing confident and dignified personalities. They are known for being fiercely independent, intelligent, and sometimes even stubborn. These traits might influence their travel needs in that they may require a sense of control and assurance during the journey, making acclimation to transport carriers and schedules of particular importance.

Size and Physical Needs

Scottish Terriers typically weight between 18-22 pounds and stand about 10 inches at the shoulder. Despite their small size, they are sturdy and active dogs that require regular exercise. During transport, a comfortable space to move around, coupled with regular stops for physical activity, are necessary to keep them happy and healthy. Their dense, wiry coats also mean that temperature control is essential to prevent overheating.

Common Health Considerations

Scottish Terriers may suffer from breed-specific issues such as von Willebrand's disease and craniomandibular osteopathy. When arranging travel, ensure that all health certifications, such as a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection, are current. Proper preparation will help in avoiding the exacerbation of existing conditions and safeguard their well-being en route.

How to prepare your Scottish 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

Be sure to have your Scottie's updated vaccination records and health documents at hand during travel. These will not only comply with transport regulations but will also be crucial in case of an emergency.

Identification and Tracking

Secure, readable identification tags, an up-to-date microchip registration, and considering GPS tracking devices are recommended for maintaining your Scottish Terrier's safety throughout the trip. Location tracking can give you peace of mind that your pet's whereabouts are always known.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Packing a beloved toy, a snug blanket, or even a piece of clothing with a familiar scent can significantly soothe travel nerves, providing comfort and security amidst the unfamiliarity of transportation.

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 Scottish Terrier

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Familiarity breeds contentment; hence bringing a Scottish Terrier's favorite toy or an anxiety vest can be extremely beneficial in calming nerves. Soft, comforting dialogue or music may also promote a tranquil environment.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Considering the active nature of Scottish Terriers, scheduling regular exercise and bathroom breaks is crucial. Plan for a stop every 2-3 hours to allow them to stretch their legs and relieve themselves, maintaining a sense of routine.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Scotties' thick coats mean they can overheat quickly. Ensure the vehicle's climate is controlled, providing a cool and ventilated space. Ample water should be available at all times to keep them well-hydrated.

Post Transportation Care for your Scottish Terrier

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Upon arrival, provide a quiet space with familiar items to explore at their own pace. Scottish Terriers appreciate consistency, so adhering to familiar routines will help them acclimatize to their new environment.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Scottish Terrier for any signs of stress or illness following the journey. If any concerning symptoms arise, contact a veterinarian promptly to address potential travel-related issues.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a regular feeding, exercise, and care routine in the new setting will help your Scottish Terrier adapt and thrive. Continuity is the key to assisting your pet in adjusting successfully after travel.
