Prepping Your Pet for a Move to Logan

Logan move-in walkthroughFor you and your pet, moving to Logan can be an exciting and stressful experience. That is why it is critical to begin preparing your pet for the relocation as soon as possible. Even a short distance transfer can disturb your pet’s routine and sense of security, and larger relocation can be especially taxing on your furry family member. To make your pet’s transition as easy as possible, here are some recommendations for preparing them for the big day.

Plan Ahead

If you’re about to relocate with a pet, it’s important to begin preparing them immediately. To ensure a successful transition, you’ll need to plan ahead and attend to a few critical aspects. For instance, be certain that your pet’s license, tags, and microchip information are current. It’s also a good idea to schedule an appointment with your veterinarian to ensure that your pet is healthy and that you have all of the meds they require. However, avoid scheduling appointments too soon to the relocation, particularly if your pet dislikes the vet’s office.

Stick to Routines

It’s no secret that animals are creatures of habit, and they thrive on routine. They can be tremendously upset by the chaos of moving, especially in the weeks leading up to and following the move. As you begin packing for your relocation, make an effort to maintain your typical schedule. This is especially crucial for dogs, who, if ignored, might become agitated or destructive. Maintain as much consistency as possible in your walks and feedings, and schedule time for play.

Introduce Their Crate Early

If your move requires your pet to spend time in a crate or kennel, this can be quite distressing, especially if they do not sleep in a crate on a regular basis. One of the greatest methods to get your pet ready for the transfer is to introduce the crate weeks ahead of time and have them associate it with good things. Encourage them to investigate the crate, for example, and reward them with treats when they do. This will help stop your pet from becoming unnecessarily fearful on the big day.

Include Comfort Items

Pets adore the smells and sounds of their owners’ homes. You can bring those sensory toys with you and keep them with your pet to assist them in remaining calm during the transfer. Bring a favorite blanket or pet bed with your pet during the transfer. Additionally, a beloved toy or even a piece of your clothes can be used to reassure a pet in tense times. Additionally, separate your pet’s food, treats, and water and keep them with you prior to, during, and following the transfer.

Create a Safe Space

When the big day approaches, you might want to consider reserving a special area for your pet. Because pets frequently grow anxious and may flee during relocations, it is preferable to put them in a quiet room or enclosed yard. Additionally, you may like to inquire whether a friend or family member could care for your pet throughout the transfer to alleviate any stress or confusion. Giving your pet a safe place to stay during the relocation can help manage their stress while also keeping them out of the way.
