Guide To Moving With A Pet
Moving day is already chaotic enough, but once you add a dog or cat to the mix, it becomes a little more complicated. Your pets won’t have any idea what’s going on, and the shock of having their daily routines upended can make things more difficult for them and for you. This is why you need to make sure your pet’s moving experience is not an afterthought. If you want the day to go as smoothly as possible, you need to take the time to plan and be prepared.
For example, make sure you keep your dog or cat sequestered in an empty room if possible while you and the movers work. This ensures they will be out of harm’s way and avoid any potential stress. You should have a small bag packed with some essentials including food, treats, and a couple of favorite toys to keep your pet happy and occupied while you’re on the move. Larger dogs should be kept on a leash or harness the entire time. Of course, hiring a professional moving company will ensure you have the time to pay attention to your pet and keep them calm.
Don’t let a stressed-out pet add more chaos to your upcoming move. To learn more about what you can do before, during, and after moving day to help your dog or cat adjust, take a look at the accompanying resource.
