What determines the cost of Wirehaired Pointing Griffon shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Wirehaired Pointing Griffon.

Mode of transportation

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 Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, 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 Wirehaired Pointing Griffon 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.

Wirehaired Pointing Griffon: The Adaptable Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, originating from the Netherlands and developed in France, is known for its versatility as a gundog, excelling on both land and water. This breed's cheerful demeanor, intelligence, and eager-to-please attitude make it an excellent family companion, in addition to its hunting prowess. Wirehaired Pointing Griffons are typically good-natured and can be sensitive; thus, they may require extra care to ensure their emotional needs are met during transport.

Size and Physical Needs

Wirehaired Pointing Griffons are medium-sized dogs, often weighing between 50-70 pounds, with robust builds that are both strong and agile. These dogs require ample exercise to maintain their physical and mental wellbeing. During transit, it's important to provide a secure space that allows them to stand and turn comfortably, as well as regular stops for stretch and play to meet their high activity needs.

Common Health Considerations

While generally healthy, the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon can be prone to hip dysplasia, ear infections, and eye conditions such as Progressive Retinal Atrophy. Travelers should prepare by bringing along any health certificates and ensuring vaccinations are up-to-date, considering prophylactic measures against motion sickness if needed, and choosing climate-controlled transport options to keep their companion safe and healthy.

How to prepare your Wirehaired Pointing Griffon 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

Ensuring your Wirehaired Pointing Griffon has all the necessary health checks and is up-to-date on vaccinations is crucial. Keep a copy of health and vaccination records on hand during travel, as they may need to be presented at different points en route.

Identification and Tracking

Secure identification is paramount. Fitting your Griffon with a well-marked collar and tags, as well as a microchip, can prevent any mishaps if they become separated from their transporter. Consider a GPS pet tracker for additional peace of mind.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Bringing items that your Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is familiar with, such as a favorite blanket or toy, can be soothing during transport. Familiar scents from home can help reduce stress and promote a calm environment.

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 Wirehaired Pointing Griffon

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Travel can be stressful for any pet. To help your Griffon cope, consider providing their favorite chew toy, an anxiety vest if they're prone to stress, and employing calming techniques like soft music or regular, soft-spoken reassurances throughout the journey.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Due to their energetic nature, Wirehaired Pointing Griffons will appreciate a travel schedule that includes periodic stops for exercise. Plan for frequent breaks—approximately every 3 to 4 hours—to allow for natural behavior and relieve any pent-up energy.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Keeping your Wirehaired Pointing Griffon at a comfortable temperature and well-hydrated is essential. In warm climates, ensure that the vehicle is air-conditioned and that fresh water is available throughout the journey.

Post Transportation Care for your Wirehaired Pointing Griffon

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Once your Wirehaired Pointing Griffon arrives at their new home, give them time to explore and become accustomed to their new environment gradually. Sticking to familiar routines as much as possible can also aid in their adjustment.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

After travel, monitor your dog for any signs of distress or illness and consult a veterinarian if any unusual behavior or symptoms emerge. It's important to ensure your Griffon's health remains a top priority even after the move.

Continuing Care and Routine

Maintain consistency in care, feeding, and exercise routines to help your Wirehaired Pointing Griffon settle into their new home. This structure provides comfort and security, leading to a happier and well-adjusted dog following the journey.
