How to ship a dog?

Create a dog shipping list

We make the list up of your dog’s information, which includes breed, name, and special needs.  The data determine the best shipping method and procedure.  The list also comprises the time frame and if you need a kennel. As you create the listing, make it as detailed as possible to enable the transporter to offer the best care for your needs of safe shipping.

After creating your list, the next step is finding a shipper. There is a robust, extensive network of professional pet transporters that you can leverage. You will receive competitive quotes; review the shipper’s profiles before accepting a quote.  Ask questions of the carriers to get a feel of what they offer as your dog needs the best. Be confident in choosing your dog transport services.

 Pet Transport and Delivery

Once you have chosen a dog shipping expert, contact the carrier with additional details, and raise concerns regarding dog’s transport. Ask questions; check out their reviews and referrals.  When comfortable with the service, set up the right meeting place for your dog pickup and delivery.

Cost of shipping a dog

How many does it cost to transport a dog?  The cost depends on the distance and the needs of the dog. On average, it will cost you €120 to €250 to ship a dog within 300 miles and more extended shipment costing €270 to €500.

Prepare Your Dog for Shipping

The dog needs a good kennel, bedding, food and water, medication regardless of the destination.  You will also need a health certificate from a licensed bet before the travel via car or air across the state or country.  Be sure to check out with your transporter on any additions your dog may need. Before the shipping, train your dog by taking crate transport and taking more rides in your car.  As you include emergency contact information to your carrier, add the following checklist.

Pet shipping checklist:

  • Travel kennel and bedding
  • Provision (food and water) ad medication
  • Records such as vaccination, health status, and breed certificates
  • Identification such as collar and microchip
  • Leash, collar and contact information attached


Shipping a puppy

Shipping a puppy differs from that of a grown pet.  The puppy must be at least ten weeks old in most countries.

Move with a dog

As soon as your migration plans actualize, start preparing your pet. Take your dog for a vet checkup and collect shots, certificates and other health records.  The next step involves learning the state/city per regulations for your destination and fulfills the set obligations.  Review your pet identification tags, paperwork, and any other documents needed to facilitate transfer to a new city or state.

The last step involves settling your pet once delivered to its new home. It will be hard to adjust to the change, where you can start by confining in a small area until he is ready to explore more.  The dog will need familiar objects in the house and people to help in settling. Have their natural bedding for a scent to remind the dog/puppy they are at home.
