Relocation with Pets: What You Need to Know

RelocationRelocation, while it can be exciting, can be hard on your pets. If you’re getting ready to move in the next few weeks, make things easier on your pets during the relocation process by:

  • Keeping them in a quiet area—When our movers at Glaser & Sons Mooving are going in and out of your house with furniture and boxes, your pet may start to feel a little bit overwhelmed. During the actual move, consider keeping your pet in a safe and quiet place and checking on them regularly. Or, you may want to take them over to a friend’s house for the day.
  • Introducing them to your new place—Once you move into your new place, set up an area with your pet’s food, water, toys, and bedding as soon as possible. This will help them feel more at home and also provide them with a sense of familiarity.
  • Making sure you have enough food and toys—During the relocation process, it’s easy to forget to do certain things. However, make sure you set aside some of your pet’s food before the day of the move and some of their favorite toys to keep them entertained.

Remember, after you move into your new house, your pet may feel a little bit disoriented and may require a little bit more attention than normal right at first. However, once you get back into your routine, chances are that your pet will start to feel right at home.
