College HUNKS understands the strain packing and moving into a new home can cause on your household. Our team of professional and friendly relocation experts can provide tips on how to move with your pets to help make the whole process stress-free. Many dog owners are concerned about how moving can affect their pets. We know that your dog is part of the family and therefore, you will want to make the moving process as easy on them as possible. You know your dog better than anyone so give some thought to what would be stressful for them and try to avoid that.
You’ll also want to consult with your veterinarian well in advance and start the process of looking for a new veterinarian closer to your new home (if needed). If you’ll end up going to a new veterinarian, make sure you have all of your dog’s health records. Additionally, make sure your dog is wearing ID tags with updated contact information on moving day and in the first few weeks in your new home in case they happen to run away. Microchipping your dog and having updated photos of your dog handy may also be helpful if this happens. On moving day, make sure you have your dog’s favorite toys, blanket, treats, and food readily available as well as any medication they take.
If you’re a dog owner, it’s important to know that an unprepared move has the potential to wreak havoc on your pet’s demeanor. Dogs are social animals and often mirror their owner’s stress levels. These stressors show up as mischievous, abnormal, or clingy behavior. The amount of uneasiness your dog experiences can be directly related to how much worry and anxiety you are feeling during your move. The best way to reduce potential stress in your pet is to manage your own stress level.
Properly preparing for your move with a checklist can help streamline the process and ensure you are organized, equipped, and ready for moving day.
