Our customers love how we care for their dogs

Great resource
A fast, reliable transport solution

As a professional breeder of AKC St. Bernards shipping all over the USA, we need dependable trustworthy pet transport teams. We've found them through CitizenShipper. Thanks!

I am a Havanese Breeder and needed help with transportation fast. CitizenShipper was easy to navigate and I received quotes very quickly. I liked the reviews and the bio on each company. Would you use CitizenShipper again.

CitizenShipper was recommended to me by the breeder I adopted my dog from. I'm glad I listened to her! Not only did my pup arrive safe and sound today, but the process was very easy and the pricing isn't too bad! Thanks, CitizenShipper!

Frequently asked questions

How much does shipping a dog cost?

Driver quotes will vary. The dog's breed, its age, how much care it requires, travel distance, driver reviews/experience, and more factors all contribute to driver bids. Most breeders take many factors into account when deciding which driver to use. The key is to find one who's the right match for your particular needs and preferences.

How can I determine what kind of car/truck/gear a driver has?

Drivers who specialize in pet shipping usually list this information on their profile pages. Be sure to check out the profile of any driver you are considering. If you don’t see their information listed, make a point of messaging them directly to get it.

What kind of communication can I, or my customers, expect from the driver?

The person who arranges the transport can communicate with prospective drivers using the CitizenShipper messaging dashboard until the booking process is completed. Once booked, you can communicate with the driver in whatever way you prefer.
