New neighbors, new sounds, new smells…. Moving is a big deal to everyone involved – even your pets! Some pets have no trouble at all adjusting to a new home and environment, while other pets – especially those with anxiety – can experience a lot of stress when they’re relocated to a brand-new setting. Help your pet adjust to a move and settle in comfortably with these easy steps!
Consistency is key. Try to keep your routine in your new home as similar as possible to your routine in your previous home. Feed Fido at the same time as you always have, and keep dog walks, play time, and bed time the same too. This will help your pet understand that while their home is different, life with their owner remains the same. Also, it’s a good idea to keep the comforts of home the same. Dogs rely heavily on scents, so having their bed, kennel, and toys set up immediately so they have something comforting to go to will help your pet begin to adjust.
