Moving with Pets: 3 Tips for Success

Pets are cherished members of our family, and just like us, they can feel the stress and uncertainty that come with major life changes. So, how do we minimize their stress levels and help them adapt to the inevitable disruptions in their routine?

Maintain Your Pet's Daily Routine for Stability

When you're in the process of packing up your home for a move, it's crucial to stick to your pet's regular daily routine. Consistency in feeding, exercise, and bedtime schedules is essential for their overall well-being. Pets thrive on routine, and maintaining familiarity during a significant change helps reduce their stress and facilitates a smoother transition.
  • Stick to regular feeding times, walks, and playtime, even amidst the chaos of moving.
  • Animals can sense changes in their environment, so sticking to their routine provides a sense of normality.

Include Your Pet in the Moving Process

While pets may not be able to help pack boxes, there are ways to involve them in the excitement of moving. Make the transition more enjoyable for your furry friend by:
  • Allowing them to explore empty boxes, turning it into a fun adventure.
  • Taking regular breaks throughout the day to spend quality time with your pets.
  • Showing them extra love and treating them to special attention.
  • Incentivizing positive behavior to create a positive and encouraging environment.
While dogs may enjoy games like fetch, cats often prefer to hide in stressful situations. However, a giant box can turn into a delightful playground for your feline companion.

Leave Pet Belongings Until Last

As you embark on this significant transition, prioritize your pet's comfort by leaving their familiar items, such as food bowls and beds, until the final stages of the move. This strategy provides them with a sense of security amidst the changes, minimizing additional stress during the relocation process.
