How to Get Your Pet Ready for Your Move

If you are getting ready to move, chances are you’ll be bringing a pet or two with you. Almost half of all households in the United States own a dog, and nearly 40% have a cat. So when you contact our Longmont moving company about your upcoming move, these beloved members of the family will be making the transition with you. They aren’t immune to the stress of a move, though, and there are things you can do to help make your pet’s transition to your new home a happy one:

  • Before the move, get your pets used to a carrier. This is the safest place for them during the transition, and they won’t be in danger of slipping off the leash or out of your arms. Leave their carrier out for at least a few days before the move and offer them treats when they go inside to start building a positive association with the space.
  • During the move put pets either in their carrier or give them one room to roam around in at the old place as well as the new one. This keeps them out from under your feet as you are carrying boxes and furniture in and out. You’ll be able to keep an eye on them and make sure they are staying safe if you know exactly where they are at in the house.
  • After the move, keep things consistent. Don’t put away the carrier immediately–they may want to use it as a “safe place” for a few days. Keep their routine the same, too. Feed them at similar times, keep litter boxes in the same kind of space if possible, and make sure to give them plenty of extra love.
