What determines the cost of Standard Poodle shipping

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

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 Standard Poodle, 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 Standard Poodle 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.

Standard Poodle: The Sophisticated Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Standard Poodle boasts a storied heritage as a breed revered for its intelligence, grace, and versatility. Originating from Germany and gaining prominence in France, this breed served a variety of purposes, including retrieving game from water. Poodles are known for their sharp wits, amiable nature, and an eagerness to please, making them superb companions. When traveling, their sensitivity and intelligence necessitate a calm environment, with handlers who understand their need for gentle reassurance and mental stimulation.

Size and Physical Needs

As the largest variant of the poodle family, Standard Poodles typically stand over 15 inches at the shoulder, exhibiting a proud demeanor and athletic build. Their daily routine includes ample exercise to satisfy their energetic disposition. Therefore, during transport, they require enough space to stretch and relax comfortably, and any carrier or crate must accommodate their size. The luxurious, curly coat also requires climate-controlled conditions to prevent overheating or excessive cold.

Common Health Considerations

Standard Poodles may be predisposed to specific ailments such as hip dysplasia, eye disorders, and bloat. To ensure a safe journey, owners must prepare the latest health documentation, possibly including a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI). Prior to travel, discussing preventative strategies with a veterinarian, such as for gastric torsion, is a wise step to ensuring their well-being en route.

How to prepare your Standard Poodle 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

Compile a complete set of up-to-date vaccination and health records for your Standard Poodle, ensuring they are within easy reach during travel. These documents are vital for interstate movement and in case of emergencies.

Identification and Tracking

Ensure your Standard Poodle is microchipped, and the registration details are current. Fit them with a secure collar, displaying ID tags with contact information. For added precaution, consider a GPS tracker that can attach to their collar.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Include your Standard Poodle's favorite blanket or a piece of your clothing in their travel space. Familiar scents provide a soothing effect, reducing travel-related stress. Also, pack a familiar toy to offer a sense of continuity and home.

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 Standard Poodle

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Keep anxiety at bay by incorporating calming aids such as a familiar toy, a pheromone diffuser, or a soft anxiety vest. Gentle, soothing music can also create a tranquil atmosphere during transit.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Standard Poodles should have the opportunity to exercise and relieve themselves every 3 to 4 hours during long trips. This routine helps manage energy levels and supports overall comfort and hygiene.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Standard Poodles' thick coats demand a climate-controlled environment, avoiding extreme temperatures. Provide consistent access to fresh water, ensuring they stay hydrated throughout the journey.

Post Transportation Care for your Standard Poodle

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Offer a quiet space for your Standard Poodle to decompress post-travel. Introduce them gradually to their new environment, ensuring they feel secure and loved to foster a smooth transition.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After travel, monitor your Standard Poodle closely for any signs of distress or illness. Consult a veterinarian if there are concerns, addressing any issues promptly to maintain their health.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establishing a consistent routine of feeding, exercise, and grooming is crucial for a Standard Poodle's well-being. Familiar routines provide comfort and help your pet adapt to their new home.
