How to Keep Your Furry Friends Safe and Happy During Your Move

Moving can be stressful for everyone involved, including our furry friends. Pets can become confused, anxious, and scared during the chaos of a move, making it crucial to plan and prepare ahead of time. In this guide, we'll provide tips, tricks, and expert advice on how to move with pets and keep them safe and happy during the process.

Update your pet's information

Before your move, make sure your pet is up-to-date on all their vaccinations and has proper identification tags with your new address and contact information.

Prepare a pet-friendly travel kit

Pack a travel kit with your pet's favorite toys, food, and water bowls, medication, and a leash or carrier. This will make the transition to your new home easier for your pet.

Familiarize your pet with their carrier or crate

If your pet will be traveling in a carrier or crate, make sure they're comfortable and familiar with it before the move. Leave the carrier or crate out and open it so your pet can explore it and feel comfortable.

Make pet-friendly accommodations in your new home

Before moving in, make sure your new home is safe and comfortable for your pet. This includes setting up a designated area for food, water, and rest, and ensuring any potential hazards, such as loose cords or toxic plants, are removed.
