As a moving and storage company that has been in business for decades, we understand the stress everyday people face during the process of moving. Now, take that stress and double it for your pet(s). While you cannot postpone your move for your pet(s), there are some strategies you can use to help ease their anxiety. Let’s take a look.
TRY TO PACK AS MUCH AS YOU CAN ALL AT ONCE
Packing is an activity that causes anxiety in many animals. If you are packing yourself, try to pack as much as you can all at once. Packing and moving boxes over the course of days and/or weeks can significantly elevate stress levels in your pet(s).
CONSIDER SENDING YOUR FURRY FAMILY MEMBER TO A FRIEND’S HOUSE OR SPA FOR THE DAY
Movers and packers are often a source of stress for pets. Consider having a friend watch your pet(s) or perhaps send them to the local pet spa on the day your full service moving company is scheduled to arrive.
GIVE THEM EXTRA ATTENTION!
Your pet(s) will get more and more anxious, especially when the movers and packers arrive. It is important to reinforce to your pet(s) that you love them and that they are not going to be left behind. Be sure to give your pet(s) extra love and attention before, during, and after your move. A few extra treats won’t hurt, either!
