Review Of Roehl Transport Paid CDL Training

Review Of Werner Enterprises

Prospective driver here, waiting to turn 21. I know what you're going to say. Don't let your dog dictate where you work. Although that's how it's gonna be. My question is what is Roehl pet policy and what is Werners? As in size of dog, breed restrictions, deposits, pay reductions, and anything else you can think of. Thank you in advance for the help.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Werner allows pets, I've seen a driver at the terminal with a baby pit, now if he had it authorized or not idk.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

We've got both of them on our list of trucking companies that allow pets:

Roehl Transport:

Application and approval required. $650 total pet fee, $400 is a refundable deposit. Dogs less than 60 pounds and cats are allowed, no other creatures. Pit bulls, Rottweiler, Doberman Pinscher, Chow, Wolf hybrids not allowed. Animal must be spayed or neutered. Pet carrier and proof of shots required. Roehl has installed special waste receptacles and created pet run areas at their terminals.

Werner:

No breed or size restrictions. One dog or one cat. $250 deposit, $5 per week fee. Shots must be kept up to date.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Thanks Brett! Do we know how they decide weather something is a pit? Mines a mix of some sort. But the vet calls it an am staff.

Also, I tried to find both companies using the search tab. Must of not been looking hard enough. My apologies­čśŐ

I'm not sure how they would determine the breed exactly. If it's "close enough" to being a Pitbull that might be too close. But you'll obviously want to speak to the company about that.

I have an American Staffordishire BT/American Pit Mix, I had a DNA test done on him to protect. I bought the DNA kit at Petco, "swabbed" his inner cheek, mailed it in and within couple weeks I got the results. He is 73% staffie and 37% APB, I bought a different test kit (different company) results were almost the same. So by law he is a Staffie Mix and there are at least 4 companies that will allow my buddy.

If I was you, I'd do a DNA test on him and if it comes back in your favor as a Staffie-Mix, keep copy of document with you, also give to your vet for their records.
