What determines the cost of Vizsla shipping

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

rating
Mode of transportation

ratingGround travel

Cost $$$

Time ⏱⏱

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.

rating
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.

rating
Pet size

Smaller pets are easier – and less expensive – to transport. If you’re flying your Vizsla, 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.

rating
Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Vizsla 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.

Vizsla: The Velvety Companions

Origins and Temperament

Originally from Hungary, the Vizsla is a breed known for its distinguished hunting abilities and warm companionship. These intelligent and affectionate dogs are often referred to as 'Velcro dogs' due to their clingy nature. Vizslas possess an expressive demeanor — they are sensitive and thrive on attention from their human counterparts. It's essential to consider their need for closeness when planning for transport, as they may experience separation anxiety if left alone or confined for extended periods.

Size and Physical Needs

Vizslas typically weigh between 45 to 65 pounds and have a sleek, muscular build. They require ample exercise to satisfy their high energy levels, making it crucial to consider stops for physical activity during transportation. Additionally, their short coats do not offer much protection from extreme temperatures, so any transport arrangements should provide for climate-controlled environments to keep them comfortable.

Common Health Considerations

Vizslas are generally healthy but can suffer from issues like hip dysplasia. When traveling, it's vital to have their health records on hand, including documentation for vaccinations and recent vet visits. Keeping a Vizsla's routine as consistent as possible and allowing for space to stretch out can help prevent undue stress and mitigate the risk of health complications while on the road.

How to prepare your Vizsla 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 transport, ensure that you have a copy of the Vizsla's up-to-date vaccinations and health records. Check if specific health certificates are required for interstate or nationwide travel and keep digital copies accessible throughout the journey.

Identification and Tracking

A collar with tags displaying contact information is mandatory for your Vizsla's travel. Additionally, ensure your dog is microchipped with your current contact information, and consider a GPS tracker attached to the collar for an extra layer of security.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Reducing a Vizsla’s travel anxiety can be as simple as bringing along their favorite toy or blanket. Familiar scents can provide a sense of security, so consider including bedding or an article of your clothing to offer comfort.

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 Vizsla

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To alleviate a Vizsla's travel stress, provide a well-ventilated crate with enough space for them to stand and turn around easily. Introduce any travel crates well in advance of the trip. Blankets or anxiety vests can be used for comfort, while soft music may help soothe nerves.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Schedule regular breaks for exercise and bathroom needs, ideally every 4-6 hours, to cater to the Vizsla's high energy levels. This helps to burn off energy and maintain a sense of routine.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Vizslas are sensitive to extreme temperatures due to their short coat. Ensure the transport vehicle is well-ventilated and temperature controlled. Offer water at every rest stop to keep your Vizsla hydrated.

Post Transportation Care for your Vizsla

Adjustment to New Surroundings

To help a Vizsla adjust after transport, spend ample time with them as they explore their new surroundings. Keep them on a leash initially in unfamiliar settings to prevent them from running off while investigating their new environment.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Observe your Vizsla for any signs of stress or illness following travel, such as refusal to eat or drink, lethargy, or anxiety. Consult your veterinarian if you notice unusual behavior or health concerns.

Continuing Care and Routine

Establishing a consistent daily routine for feeding, exercise, and sleep is critical for helping your Vizsla settle into their new home. Routine instills a sense of security and helps to reinforce a bond with new family members or environments.
