Moving with your dog

Follow these tips to help you and your pet make the transition from one home to another.

Transitioning a pet to a new home can be difficult, but there are ways to make it easier for both you and your furry friend. Here are six tips that will help make the process smoother for everyone involved. 

1. Make sure your new home is pet-friendly. If you’re renting, get written permission from your landlord before moving in.

2. Visit the vet and update your pet’s vaccinations. This will help ensure that they stay healthy in their new environment.

3. Get familiar with the area around your new home, so you know where the best places are for walks and potty breaks.

4: Take things slowly – don’t try to introduce your pet to their new surroundings all at once. Instead, take it one step at a time so they can get used to their new environment gradually. This includes letting them explore the house on their own and getting comfortable with the smells and sounds of their new home. 

5: Give them plenty of love and attention – this is especially important in the early days after moving, when pets may feel insecure or anxious about their new surroundings. Make sure you continue to give them regular meals, exercise, and playtime; as well as lots of cuddles and reassuring words.

6: Set up some familiar landmarks – like bedding, toys, or even just photographs of old friends and family members – to help your pet feel more at ease in their new home. These little reminders of familiarity will go a long way in helping them adjust better over time. 

7: Be patient! Transitioning a pet takes time, so be prepared to give it several weeks (or even months) before they fully settle into their new routine. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is a happy pet household! 

8: Make use of positive reinforcement – rewards like treats or praises work wonders when training pets (and people too!). If your furry friend does something good in their new home (like using the litter box), make sure you let them know how proud you are! 

9: Seek professional help if needed – sometimes an extra set of eyes (or paws) can be helpful when transitioning an animal from one home to another. If you’re feeling lost or overwhelmed during this process, don’t hesitate to reach out for advice from your veterinarian or animal behaviourist. They may have some great tips specific to your situation that can make things easier for everyone involved
