#1 Make an Overnight Bag
When it comes to moving, it can be a stressful time not only for you, but for your pet, as well. While packing up your things, you’ll want to take the time to pack an overnight bag for your pet. In their bag, you can pack a few days’ worth of food, their favorite security items, and their leash so you have it on hand. You won’t want to dig through unpacked boxes to find the necessities for your pet and this bag will make everything easier for you both. This overnight bag may seem like a small step, but it will make the transition easier on both of you and give your pet a sense of comfort knowing that this is their new home.
#2 Keeping a Routine
Keeping your furry friend on as normal of a routine as possible will help them get used to their new environment. Unpacking can be hectic and getting things where you want them can be stressful, but you’ll want to take a break during all of this to keep your furry friend on their usual routine. Take them for walks and let them eat at the same time, even during the craziness. This will help them establish their new routine and become used to their new surroundings. If you have to get to work right away and you’re worried about their routine, there are apps like Rover.com and Wag that allow you to hire someone to check on your pets, and even take them on a walk while you’re gone.
#3 Stay Away from the Action
Being in a new environment, you may want to get out and explore with your pet. This is not always a good idea. Your pets could experience stress from the moving and immediately immersing them into a whole new world may get them more worked up than they already are. Slowly exploring the area is the best way to start. Let them stay in the apartment for a few days to get used to that new environment, then slowly take them to different parts of the complex, then maybe even to the nearby dog park when you think they’re ready. This is the best way to keep your dog as stress-free as possible and it will let them gradually explore their new surroundings without becoming overwhelmed.
