Below are tips for making moving day easy and stress-free for both you and your pet:

 

  • Prior to moving, make sure your pets are fitted with a collar and ID tag with your current phone number

  • For long distance moves, check out a list of pet-friendly hotels and make reservations ahead of time. For a list of pet-friendly hotels, check out: 
    www.petswelcome.com or www.pet-friendly-hotels.net

  • On moving day, make sure your pets are secured in a crate or closed room of your house or apartment until you are ready to load them into your car. The activities and sounds of moving day will be frightening to your pets, so it is important that they be kept in a secure area to reduce their stress as much as possible and to prevent an accidental escape.

  • Always transport cats, small dogs and other small animals in a secure, well-ventilated pet carrier. Keep larger dogs leashed and under control at all times. The stress of a move can cause even the most obedient dog to run away in unfamiliar surroundings. NEVER transport any pet in an open truck bed, trunk of a car or storage area of a moving van.

  • For long-distance moves, make sure you give your pet potty breaks and fresh water whenever you stop for a break yourself. Make sure pets are leashed at all times during potty breaks.
