Moving House with Pets: How to Make it the Pawfect Experience for our Furry Friends

Moving to a new home is an exciting adventure, but it can also be a stressful experience, especially for our furry friends. As a pet owner, ensuring a smooth transition for your beloved companions is essential during a move. With the right preparation and support from your trusted and reliable moving company, you can help your pets adjust to their new environment with ease.

Paws for Thought with These Useful Moving House Tips from Walsh Removals:

  1. Plan Ahead - Before moving day, take the time to familiarise your pets with their travel carriers or crates. Leave them open in your home with cosy bedding and treats to encourage positive associations.

  2. Stick to Routine - Pets thrive on routine, so try to maintain their regular feeding, walking, and playtime schedule as much as possible leading up to the move. Familiarity and consistency can help reduce stress during the transition.

  3. Update ID tags on collars -Ensure your pets wear collars with up-to-date identification tags that include your new address and contact information. If they get lost during the move, this will increase the chances of a safe return.

  4. Secure a Safe Space -Designate a quiet, secure area away from the chaos where your pets can relax and feel safe on moving day. Consider confining them to a single room or secluded area with their favourite toys, bedding, and water to minimise anxiety or stress.

  5. Communicate with Your Moving Company - Inform your moving company about your pets and any special accommodations they may require during the move. This will help them plan accordingly and ensure a smooth and stress-free experience for everyone involved.

  6. Transportation Considerations:- If you're traveling a long distance, plan frequent rest stops to give your pets a chance to stretch their legs, take a toilet break, and stay hydrated. Never leave them unattended in a parked vehicle, especially in extreme temperatures.

  7. Settling into Your New Home - Upon arrival at your new home, gradually acclimate your pets to their surroundings. Start by confining them to a single room and gradually introduce them to the rest of the house as they become more comfortable with their new surroundings.
