If you are like the other 70% of US households who are pet owners, you know exactly how important they are. They are part of the family. Just like you would ensure your children have a smooth easy transition to their new home, you can make that shift for your pets less stressful for them too.
1. MOVING DAY
Consider placing your pets with a friend or a boarding kennel for the day. Scared and disoriented cats and dogs have a tendency to run and hide.
2. IF YOU’RE PLANNING A LONG-DISTANCE MOVE
Prepare your pets by gradually acclimating them to their crate or pet carrier.
3. PET PROOF YOUR NEW HOME
Tuck away electrical cords, plug nooks where pets could look for safety but get stuck, ensure all windows have screens, and confirm all pest-control poison traps have been removed from the house.
We have several other tips for you to make sure your pets stay safe, feel loved, and can make the transition easier on our website at: https://www.searcholympiaareahomes.com/info/pets-and-moving
