moving with dogsPet owners see their dogs as part of the family which is why it is highly important during a move that dogs are well looked after and kept safe at all times. Moving can be a stressful time for all the family, and the change in location can also affect your furry friend.

1. Plan Transportation Methods Ahead of Time

If the journey to your new home is a long one, ensure you plan all of the important aspects before you head off.  When moving with your dog, it’s essential to take resources with you for the journey, such as water, food, toys, and blankets. To break he journey up a little, why not stop for a break to let your dog get some well needed fresh air?

2. Register with a Vet in Advance

Unfortunately, you never know when anyone in your family may fall ill, including your dog. This is why it’s important to register with a new vet before you move to your new home. If this is not an option, make it a priority for when you arrive.

3. Give your Dog Time to Settle in

A new home can be confusing for any pet, so make sure to give your dog the time to settle in and get used to their new surroundings.

4. Shower with Attention

Your dog will need lots of love and attention once you have moved as they may be feeling confused. Small, frequent meals and lots of cuddles should prevent your dog from trying to go back to your old house.
