What determines the cost of Wire Fox Terrier shipping

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

Wire Fox Terrier: The Spirited Companions

Origins and Temperament

With roots tracing back to 19th century England, the Wire Fox Terrier's lineage is steeped in hunting prowess and intelligent tenacity. Known for their alert and energetic nature, these canines have transitioned from fearless fox hunters to affectionate house pets. However, their innate curiosity and fervor mean they may find travel intriguing yet potentially stressful. When orchestrating their transportation, recognizing their spirited disposition can guide the journey, ensuring a balance between stimulation and relaxation.

Size and Physical Needs

Averaging between 13 to 16 inches in height and weighing around 15 to 18 pounds, the Wire Fox Terrier is compact, yet full of vigor. Due to their active lineage, frequent exercise is essential, not only for health but for maintaining a calm temperament. When traveling, sufficient space for comfort, opportunities for physical activity, and a secure environment are necessary to cater to their athleticism and prevent escape attempts born from their inquisitive character.

Common Health Considerations

Generally healthy, Wire Fox Terriers can be predisposed to certain genetic conditions, including cardiac and eye issues, which necessitate mindful care when traveling. Crucial health documentation like vaccination records and medical clearances ensure readiness for departure, while preventative measures, like maintaining a cooler climate to prevent overheating, safeguard their health en route.

How to prepare your Wire Fox 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

Before transportation, compile up-to-date health and vaccination records, encapsulating rabies, Bordetella, and other standard prophylaxes. Keeping these documents accessible during travel is paramount for the Wire Fox Terrier's wellbeing and adherence to regional laws.

Identification and Tracking

Fitted with a microchip, a collar with updated ID tags, and the consideration of a GPS tracker, your Wire Fox Terrier’s location and identification are prioritized during travel. These measures are proactive steps to ensure your companion's security in unfamiliar transit conditions.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Travel can be a profound sensory experience, especially for pets. Comfort items like a beloved toy and blankets infused with home scents can instill a sense of familiarity and tranquility in the dynamic environment 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 Wire Fox Terrier

Managing Anxiety and Stress

To offset potential travel-induced stress, integrating a Wire Fox Terrier’s favorite toys, along with consideration for an anxiety vest, can support emotional ease. Calming techniques should also be communicated to your CitizenShipper driver, ensuring they are prepared to comfort your pet.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Consistent stimulation and the opportunity to relieve themselves are imperative for the Wire Fox Terrier's travel routine. Interval exercise and bathroom breaks should be planned for every few hours to accommodate their high energy and small bladder.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Be proactive in managing travel conditions; Wire Fox Terriers' dense coats necessitate a cool environment, and readily available water aids in avoiding dehydration.

Post Transportation Care for your Wire Fox Terrier

Adjustment to New Surroundings

After reaching the destination, ease your Wire Fox Terrier into new surroundings gradually. Allow exploration in a controlled, safe area to accommodate their inherent curiosity and settling in process.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Keep a close watch for any signs of fatigue, appetite changes, or distress post-travel, and consult a veterinarian if concerns arise.

Continuing Care and Routine

To foster emotional stability, swiftly reestablish a regular routine of meals, walks, and playtime, similar to the one before transportation, as familiarity breeds contentment.
