Pets are the lifeline of a home and they are no less than any other family member. We care for them just like own and make sure they are given all the facilities that make them feel comfortable and even spend money on their toys and treats. I have two dogs and I pamper them a lot. Recently we had to relocate to our new house and moving pets was my biggest concern. They have spent their 6 years in our house and adjusting to a new place is always tough not only for animals but humans as well
In this article, I’m, gonna share some important points to take care of when moving to your new house with your beloved pets.
- When preparing for the move, keep your pets in mind and keep their belongings nearby so that during the journey they have their meals, treats around to keep them busy or else they will feel uncomfortable and that will impact their behavior and mood making the move tough for you.
- When packing your house, either lock the pets in a spacious room or in the lawn because there are high chances they might not allow you to pack properly and add extra to the moving time. Dogs love destroying packing material and if things go south ways you might have to start from the scratch.
- Hire removalists to help you relocate your heavy furniture as with family members and pets it won’t be possible for you. They have the resources and tools to remove such heavy items
- When you are about to start the journey, keep the dog food and water in the car accessible to you and make short breaks in between and let the pets stretch a bit. This will give them some time to relax
After adjusting in the new home, take your pets for a walk every now and then to make them aware of the local area. It will help them adjust and get to know the locality.
