Simplify the Move for Your Pets With These Helpful Tips

Is moving hard on pets? If you’re about to get a new home in RI, you may want to take this into consideration. We all love our furry friends and you certainly want to make a transition easy for them. Moving can be scary for people — imagine how it feels for pets who don’t understand what’s happening!

These tips can help reduce their stress (and therefore yours) and make the move much easier for everyone. Not only can it make settling into your new home smoother, it will also improve the quality of life for your pets in the midst of changing environments.

Quick tips to help your animals adjust to a move

Because animals don’t understand why you may be moving, suddenly living in a new place can stress them out. Dogs may become anxious or have increased accidents. Cats who feel comfortable in their known environment can also start acting out.

To help make the process easier for them, you can do things like:

  • Familiarize them with their travel crate before the move
  • Prepare a cozy spot with familiar bed or toys in the new home
  • Try to keep their routine as consistent as possible
  • Let them out more frequently than usual
  • Give them lots of exercise
  • Keep treats on hand to reinforce good behavior

Some pets do really well in a move and adapt quickly. Other animals take time to adjust and need extra love and care. You know your pets’ personalities and can adjust your plan depending on how each pet responds. The important thing is to consider the possibilities for stress and have a plan to comfort and care for your furry friends.

Just like people, animals want structure and routine. Helping your pet to feel safe in a new environment is heavily impacted by giving them routines to expect and count on.

Moving is a stressful event for everyone in the family: adults, kids, and definitely your furry friends! The last thing you want to deal with (on top of packing, coordinating, and hiring movers) is your pet feeling stressed.

You can’t exactly explain to them what’s going on. And if they’re feeling stressed, it could potentially lead to negative behaviors like chewing up your belongings or making a mess in your home.
