And when you have Fido in tow, the experience can be outright overwhelming.\u00a0<\/span>\r\n\r\nPets tend to become anxious with change, and moving to a new living environment is about as drastic for them as it gets. This means that you must consider their needs and well-being at every step as you make the transition in the next chapter. Below, FidoMingle<\/a> shares some practical tips for relocating when you have a pet!\r\n\r\nInvest in Supplies\u00a0 <\/span><\/b>\u00a0 \u00a0<\/span>\r\n\r\nFirst of all, you will probably need to purchase some supplies while preparing for your transition into your next chapter. Fortunately, many products can help your pets stay comfortable during the move.\r\n\r\nIt\u2019s essential to be confident with each purchase you make. Assess the customer ratings of any product you\u2019re considering, and look for websites that provide product reviews from veterinarians and other animal professionals. That way, you can rest easy knowing you\u2019re investing in items that will keep your little furball safe and healthy. Click here<\/a> for top-notch resources!\r\n\r\nKeep the Clutter at Bay \u00a0 <\/span><\/b>\u00a0 \u00a0 \u00a0<\/span>\r\n\r\nAs you prepare your home and get your moving supplies together, you\u2019re not going to want to deal with a bunch of clutter. It will only cause stress for you and your dog. Take time to thoroughly declutter your living environment and organize all the materials you\u2019ll need for packing your belongings efficiently.\r\n\r\nRent a self-storage unit for any items you can\u2019t take with you to the new home but you\u2019re not ready to part with. Searching the right sites will reveal all the storage facilities in your area. Some 5x5 units in the San Diego area are going for as low as $77 a month. Check out these San Diego storage units<\/a> as you determine what to do with your belongings.\r\n\r\nPrepare Your Pet \u00a0 \u00a0 <\/span><\/b>\u00a0<\/span>\r\n\r\nRoutine is essential for pets, and your furry companion's routine is about to change drastically. Think of ways you can prepare them<\/a> for the new chapter.\r\n\r\nFor instance, see if you can visit your new home before you move in; a simple walk-through will give your dog the opportunity to see the sights and smell the senses of their new environment. And consider changing their daily routine gradually to align with the schedule your family will be living by during the first couple of weeks of the relocation.\r\n\r\nFind a Veterinarian\u00a0<\/span><\/b>\r\n\r\nNothing is more important than fostering your pet\u2019s health. And when you\u2019re moving to a new home, you might need to find a new veterinarian. The sooner you do so, the better.\r\n\r\nIf you\u2019re moving to a new city or state, use your Fidomingle App <\/a>to locate a new veterinarian in your new area, and ask your current veterinarian to transfer your pet's medical records so you can transition smoothly.\r\n\r\nKeep Them Crated<\/b>\r\n\r\nGetting a high-quality crate is one of the most important purchases you can make when relocating. Not only can you keep your furry friend in their crate as you pack up your belongings, move boxes, and handle other moving day activities, but you can keep your pet secure in their crate while traveling<\/a>.\r\n\r\nAnother option is to ask a friend, family member, or pet sitter to stay with your pup<\/a> on moving day. Just make sure you trust the person!\r\n\r\nTake Them for Walks\u00a0 \u00a0 \u00a0 \u00a0 <\/span><\/b>\u00a0<\/span>\r\n\r\nIf possible, don\u2019t compromise your pet's exercise routine during the transition. Look for fun ways the whole family can provide your furball with physical activity. Go to the dog park for an hour, take a walk through the neighborhood<\/a>, or add 30 minutes of playtime to your schedule.\r\n\r\nGetting adequate exercise will allow your pet to release their day's energy. And it will reduce their stress and keep them calmer during the move.\r\n\r\nDon\u2019t make your relocation more stressful than it needs to be for your family or your pet. Implement the tips above for a smooth transition and continue learning other strategies that can help along the way. Then, you\u2019ll be ready to move into your new home, put pet-proofing measures in place, and settle into your new routines!\r\n\r\nWould you like to read more helpful content or learn about our pet lovers community?
