Home >> Packing Moving Tips >> Moving In & Settling In With Your Pets
You did a fine job by transporting your loving pets from the old house to the new one. Packing and moving, however, does not end for either of you. Adapting to the new place is another big challenge for you and your pets too. You must understand that it can be quite frustrating and disturbing to see your pets stressed in the new environment. Here are few tips to let the new place stresses fade out for your pets.
You must immediately assign a corner of the new house to your pet. Make sure that your pet is restricted to that corner till you unload the baggage from the trucks. A good idea is to unpack things like pet's eating bowls and plates and its favorite toys. Getting its old things at the new place can make you pet relax a bit.
You must make full use of leashes for your dog to ensure that it doesn't run away and get lost at the unfamiliar place. Identification tags should stick to its body not only while packing and moving, but for few days after relocation as well. This is one important thing from the point of view of your pet's security.
Being at the new place should not bring any change in the routine for your pet. You must feed them in the same way as was done at the old place. Another thing to remember is to take your pet for walk as per the old schedules. This will help the pet to get familiar to its new surroundings. All these things will help you revive the old habits that the pet had been following.
Another thing you must do is feed them water you packed while packing and moving from the old place for few days. After few days, you must also feed them water from the new house to build their habit.
You must consider it as an important task to find a veterinarian at the new place you have located to. Take recommendations from your new neighbors or search for a reliable option on the internet. If you feel that the pet is not improving the behavior, you must prefer to visit the doctor for help.
It is you love and care that can help your pet to commit itself to the new place. As the stresses of packing and moving start fading out, you will find your lively and playful friend back with you.
