What determines the cost of Xoloitzcuintli shipping

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

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 Xoloitzcuintli, 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 Xoloitzcuintli 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.

Xoloitzcuintli: The Ancient Aztec Companions

Origins and Temperament

The Xoloitzcuintli, often called the "Xolo," is a breed with deep historical roots, hailing from the ancient Aztecs and revered as guardians and healers. This intelligent and affectionate dog is known for its loyal and calm demeanor, making it a favored companion. When it comes to travel, Xolos can be sensitive due to their protective nature, so understanding their emotional needs is key for a smooth journey.

Size and Physical Needs

Xolos come in three sizes - toy, miniature, and standard, ranging from about 10-30 inches tall at the shoulder. They are known for their distinctive hairless appearance, though they can also have a short-coated variety. With their hairlessness comes a vulnerability to temperature changes, requiring special accommodations like temperature control and protective gear during transport to keep them comfortable.

Common Health Considerations

This breed can be prone to skin issues, dental concerns, and joint problems, particularly in their later years. Ensuring up-to-date health documentation and taking preventive measures to provide a smooth ride can help in avoiding unnecessary stress that could exacerbate underlying health conditions.

How to prepare your Xoloitzcuintli 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

Be prepared with all current health and vaccination records for your Xolo, ensuring that all paperwork is accessible during travel as different regions may have specific requirements for pet entry.

Identification and Tracking

A secure collar with identification tags and an updated microchip are essential. For added security, consider a reliable GPS tracker that can keep you informed of your Xolo's location at all times during transit.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

To keep your Xolo at ease, pack favorite toys, blankets, or articles of clothing that carry a familiar scent. These items can have a calming effect on your pet in unfamiliar situations.

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 Xoloitzcuintli

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Xolos thrive on routine and familiarity, so mimicking their usual environment as closely as possible can help. Anxiety vests or wraps can be highly effective, as well as preferred toys and even a soothing playlist that your pet may associate with home.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Keep your Xolo on a consistent schedule for physical activity and bathroom breaks. Generally, stops every 3-4 hours should accommodate their needs and help expel energy for a more relaxed travel experience.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Temperature control is particularly crucial for hairless Xolos. Ensure the vehicle is well-ventilated and neither too hot nor too cold. Adequate hydration is also critical - provide frequent access to water, making sure your pet remains hydrated throughout the journey.

Post Transportation Care for your Xoloitzcuintli

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Allow your Xolo to explore their new surroundings at their own pace, maintaining close supervision as they adjust. Familiar items from home can help ease this transition and provide comfort.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Keep an eye on your Xolo's behavior and health following the trip. Any signs of distress or illness should be addressed by a professional veterinarian promptly.

Continuing Care and Routine

Re-establish a consistent routine for feeding, bathroom breaks, and exercise as soon as possible. This regularity helps your Xolo feel secure and is essential for their overall well-being in their new home.
