What determines the cost of Standard Schnauzer shipping

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

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 Schnauzer, 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 Schnauzer 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 Schnauzer: The Vigilant Companions

Origins and Temperament

Born in Germany, the Standard Schnauzer is the progenitor of its miniature and giant counterparts. Initially bred to guard livestock and serve as an adept rat-catcher, these robust dogs boast a strong, muscular frame and a keen intellect. The Standard Schnauzer's spirited and protective nature makes it a loyal family pet, but these traits may also lead to a heightened sensitivity to unfamiliar environments. They thrive on human interaction, making their travel needs unique; an environment with comfort and reassurance is vital.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically weighing between 30 to 50 pounds and standing 17.5 to 19.5 inches tall at the shoulder, the Standard Schnauzer falls into the medium-size category of dog breeds. They are known for their wiry coat and distinctive beard and eyebrows, requiring regular grooming to stay comfortable. Their perpetual energy demands ample exercise, so ensure the transporter provides sufficient space and time for periodic activity to prevent restlessness during their journey.

Common Health Considerations

Though generally a healthy breed, Standard Schnauzers can be prone to hip dysplasia, eye diseases, and skin disorders. Confirm that all health documentation, particularly the pet's vaccination record and any certificates of health from a veterinarian, are prepared in advance of transport. Taking such steps and discussing the pet's health history with the transporter ensures a safe and preemptive approach to your Standard Schnauzer's travel wellness.

How to prepare your Standard Schnauzer 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

Before setting off, verify that your Standard Schnauzer's health and vaccination records are current and on hand. This includes proof of rabies vaccination, which is required by law in many locations. Having these documents easily accessible during travel also prepares you for any checks or emergencies along the way.

Identification and Tracking

A collar with an ID tag displaying your contact information is essential. It is equally important that your Standard Schnauzer is microchipped, as this permanent form of identification can be a lifesaver if they become separated from their transporter. For additional peace of mind, consider attaching a GPS tracker to your dog's collar or harness.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To provide solace in a changing environment, pack your Standard Schnauzer's favorite blanket or toy. Familiar scents act as a soothing reminder of home, reducing the potential stress of transit.

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 Schnauzer

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Maintain your Standard Schnauzer's peace of mind by including a cherished toy or blanket, and consider clothing them in an anxiety vest if they are prone to stress. Share any calming techniques that work for your dog with the transporter to facilitiate a serene travel experience.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Standard Schnauzers benefit from a structured routine. Schedule regular stops for exercise and bathroom breaks—about every 2-3 hours—to uphold their comfort and temperament during the journey.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Always aim for a temperature-controlled environment, preventing your Standard Schnauzer from getting too hot or cold. Ensure that fresh water is available at all times to keep them well-hydrated.

Post Transportation Care for your Standard Schnauzer

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Allow your Standard Schnauzer to explore and become acquainted with their new surroundings at their own pace. Familiar routines and the presence of their favorite items can lend comfort and facilitate the adjustment process.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After arrival, observe your Standard Schnauzer for any signs of stress or illness. If you notice changes in behavior or health, don't hesitate to consult your veterinarian.

Continuing Care and Routine

Stability is key. Reestablish your Standard Schnauzer's daily routine, including feeding, exercise, and playtimes, to instill a sense of security and belonging in their new environment.
