How to Make Moving with Dogs Easier
Moving to a new home is exciting, but it can also be stressful, especially if you are moving with pets. Many pet owners are concerned their dog will not adjust well with the large transition, leaving them to search for answers to questions like: How long does it take for a dog to adjust to a new home or what to do with your dog when you move? To help, we put together a list of tips for how to make moving with dogs easier - for both of you!
Keep your dog preoccupied while you are packing
Pets can sense change and may become nervous watching you pack up your home. So to help a dog adjust to moving, we recommend distracting them with toys like the PetSafe® Busy Buddy® Chamomile-Scented Calming Toys that dispense food. Treat-dispensing toys keep your dog busy playing and can help prevent dog stress from moving or separation anxiety in a new home.
Protect your dog and your new home
Moving with dogs can be chaotic, so we recommend setting boundaries to protect your dog and your home. Training your pet to use solutions like Indoor Shields® Plus can help keep your dog out of the moving room or away from freshly painted walls.
Our indoor solutions can be used to set avoidance boundaries around areas you would like to keep your dog away from. This indoor pet barrier allows your pet access to roam areas of the house that you deem safe and creates an Invisible Boundary® around areas you prefer to be off-limits. People often use Shields to keep pets off furniture, out of the trash or away from their closet
Introduce your dog to your new yard
Establishing a new routine is key to helping your dog adjust to their new home. Showing your dog his new yard, is a great start. With a whole new space to explore, it is important to create boundaries so your dog does not wander off your property.
Invisible Fence® Brand’s exclusive Boundary Plus® Technology lets your dog play right up to the edge of your new property, giving them the freedom to safely explore their new home.
