What determines the cost of Staffordshire Bull Terrier shipping

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

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 Staffordshire Bull 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 Staffordshire Bull 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.

Staffordshire Bull Terrier: The Loyal Companions

Origins and Temperament

Born out of 19th-century Britain, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier was originally bred for bull-baiting. Today, affectionately known as 'Staffies', they are revered for their courage, intelligence, and love for humans. They often form strong bonds with their owners and can be very sensitive to their emotions, exhibiting a stoic yet affectionate temperament. When transporting Staffies, it’s essential to understand that their sensitivity might make them more prone to travel anxiety. Therefore, finding a travel solution that provides comfort and reassurance is crucial.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically weighing between 24 to 38 pounds, Staffies are muscular and robust, although compact in size. They possess abundant energy and require sufficient exercise. During transport, it's important to ensure they have enough space to feel comfortable, and potential drivers should be ready to accommodate frequent stops for physical activity to keep their mood buoyant and muscles loose.

Common Health Considerations

While generally healthy, Staffordshire Bull Terriers can be predisposed to certain health conditions such as hip dysplasia and cataracts. Prior to travel, ensure all health documentation is in order, including a health certificate, particularly when crossing state lines. Ensure that any medication is readily available, and communicate any health concerns with the transporter to safeguard your pet's well-being during the journey.

How to prepare your Staffordshire Bull 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

Ensure all health and vaccination records are up-to-date, including rabies and Bordetella, among others. These documents are not only mandatory for safety compliance but also provide peace of mind knowing your pet is fit for travel. Keep a copy easily accessible throughout transport.

Identification and Tracking

A microchip and clearly marked identification tags are vital in case your Staffie gets lost during transit. Consider options like GPS collars for real-time tracking. These measures provide an additional layer of security and a swift reunion in case your pet is separated from their transporter.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To reduce the stress of travel, include items that smell like home, such as a favourite blanket or a worn t-shirt. A beloved toy can also offer comfort, as familiar scents and object can significantly calm your pet's nerves.

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 Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Staffies may experience anxiety during travel. To mitigate this, include a comfort object, like a chew toy, to keep them occupied. An anxiety vest or a soft-spoken reassurance can also provide great comfort to a nervous Staffie during long trips.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Plan for regular exercise and bathroom breaks, allowing your Staffie to stretch and relieve themselves. This not only helps manage their energy levels but also aids in reducing stress, making the transport experience as positive as possible.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Staffies can be sensitive to extreme temperatures, so it's important to maintain a comfortable and climate-controlled environment. Keep your furry friend well-hydrated, especially in warm conditions, to avoid heatstroke and dehydration.

Post Transportation Care for your Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Be patient as your Staffordshire Bull Terrier acclimatizes to their new home. Provide them with a designated space and familiar items to make them feel secure. Regular walks and playtime can aid in this transition period, reinforcing a sense of normality for your pet.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Keep an eye on your Staffie’s behavior and appetite following their journey. Look out for signs of stress or illness and do not hesitate to contact a veterinarian if you have concerns. It’s better to be safe and attend to any issue promptly.

Continuing Care and Routine

Consistency is key for your Staffie to settle in seamlessly. Establish and stick to a routine for feeding, walking, and sleep. Continuous care, affection, and attention will ensure that your Staffordshire Bull Terrier thrives in their new environment.
