What determines the cost of Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Soft Coated Wheaten 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 Soft Coated Wheaten 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 Soft Coated Wheaten 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.

Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier: The Cheerful Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, hailing from Ireland, has a rich history as a versatile farm dog. Known for its vividly friendly and affectionate temperament, this breed's boundless energy and playful spirit can influence their travel needs. Given their strong desire for companionship, Wheaten Terriers thrive on attention and may require extra comfort to stay calm during transport.

Size and Physical Needs

Generally ranging from 17 to 19 inches tall and weighing between 30 to 40 pounds, the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier falls into a manageable size category for travel. Their silky, soft coat, while a joy to pet, needs proper maintenance especially while traveling. Equipped with a sturdy physique, they do require regular exercise to stay happy and healthy, with accommodations for stretch and playtime during longer journeys.

Common Health Considerations

Wheaten Terriers are hardy, but like any breed, they have predispositions to certain health issues such as protein-losing nephropathy (PLN) and protein-losing enteropathy (PLE). These conditions necessitate current health documents during travel. To ensure a safe trip, verify that all health checks and preventative measures, such as regular vet visits, are up-to-date before embarking.

How to prepare your Soft Coated Wheaten 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

Prior to transportation, ensure all health and vaccination records for your Wheaten Terrier are current and readily available. These documents are essential for crossing state lines and in case of emergencies during transit.

Identification and Tracking

Secure identification is paramount. Fit your Wheaten Terrier with a collar and tags showing your contact information. For added security, consider a microchip and GPS tracking devices which can offer peace of mind during travel.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Travel can be unsettling, so pack your canine's favorite blanket or toy to provide the comforting scents of home. These familiar items can substantially ease stress and offer a sense of safety during the journey.

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 Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To minimize travel anxiety for your Wheaten, bring their preferred playthings, contemplate the use of an anxiety vest, and be ready with calming techniques such as gentle music or frequent reassurances.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Regular stops are necessary for exercise and relieving themselves—typically every 3-4 hours. Keep these breaks consistent to maintain your pet's comfort and contentment on the road.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Ensure the environment is well-ventilated and set to a comfortable temperature, avoiding extremes of hot or cold. Hydration is key, so provide continual access to fresh water throughout the trip.

Post Transportation Care for your Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Once at the destination, give your Wheaten time to explore and acclimate at their own pace. Familiar items brought from the old home can ease this transition and bring instant comfort.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Wheaten closely for any signs of stress or ill health post-journey. If you notice unusual behavior or any health concerns, consult a vet promptly.

Continuing Care and Routine

Reestablishing a routine is vital for your Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier's wellbeing. Maintain a regular schedule for meals, walks, and playtime to help them settle into their new environment seamlessly.
