With all the hustle and bustle of moving, it can create a stressful environment for your dog or cat. They can be unsure as to why you are moving around your belongings and may feel uneasy about where you are headed.
There are several things that you can do before, during and after a move to help your furry friend adjust. Things like spending more quality time with your pet, having some boxes out before the actual move and crate training them if they will be spending time in a car are great ways to prepare your pet for a relocation.
During the move, make sure they’re safe either crated or at a friend or family member’s house. Minimize their anxiety with a toy and make sure they have their tags on—just in case.
