The Manor in Plantation is the perfect place to bring your pets home to, but making the transition to a new apartment can be tough. These helpful tips will help you and your furry friends make an easy transition to our Downtown Plantation apartments.
#1 Make an Overnight Bag
When making the big move with your pets, it is important that you not only pack yourself an overnight bag, but one for your pets, as well. Packing enough food for a few days, and their favorite security items, like a toy or a blanket, will help your pet transition to their new home. You don’t want to have to dig through boxes just to be able to feed your pet, and the overnight bag allows you to take your time unpacking and making sure everything is where you want it.
#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. Let them get used to going for a walk or eating their dinner at a certain time. Their whole world changed and keeping a few things consistent will help them adjust better. 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.
