Moving pets can be difficult, because the move is just as stressful on you as it is on your pets! The most important thing to remember when moving animals is keeping your pets removed from the move. It’s the best way to keep your pets moving safely. During the moving process, be sure to keep with them a comforting object like a blanket or toy while moving pets to keep them reassured. Once you’ve moved introduce your pet to the new neighborhood by exploring on a leash. Out of stress, your pets might run away so be wary! Moving is truly a stressful time for pets and their owners.
