Dec 15, 2023

Moving to a new home is a significant event for everyone in the family, including our beloved pets.As part of our commitment to ensuring a seamless transition for our clients,we understand the importance of making the moving process as stress-free as possible for your furry friends. In this article,we’ll share valuable tips to help you and your pets navigate the move with ease.

  1. Plan Ahead for Pet-Friendly Accommodations

Before the move,research and book pet-friendly accommodations along your route.Whether you’re making a local move or a long-distance journey,having a comfortable and pet-friendly place to stay overnight can make the trip more enjoyable for both you and your pets.

  1. Update Your Pet’s Information

Ensure that your pet’s identification tags are up-to-date with your new contact information.If your pet is microchipped,verify that the chip is registered with your current address and contact details.This precaution provides an added layer of security in case your pet becomes lost during the move.

  1. Familiarize Your Pet with the Moving Supplies

Pets can be sensitive to changes in their environment.Introduce moving boxes and packing materials gradually, allowing your pet to become familiar with the sights and scents associated with the move.This can help reduce anxiety and stress on moving day.

  1. Stick to Your Pet’s Routine

Maintaining a consistent routine is crucial for pets, especially during times of change.Feed your pets,take them for walks and play with them at the same times you would on a typical day.Familiar routines provide comfort and stability,helping your pets adjust to the changes more easily.

  1. Create a Safe Haven on Moving Day

On moving day, create a designated and secure area for your pets away from the hustle and bustle. Use familiar items, such as their bed, toys, and food bowls, to make the space comforting. This will help reduce stress and ensure the safety of your pets during the busy moving process.

  1. Pack a Pet Moving Kit

Assemble a moving kit specifically for your pets,including essentials such as food, water bowls, medications,favorite toys, and a first aid kit.Having these items easily accessible will make it easier to attend to your pet’s needs throughout the journey.
