Yes, moving day can be stressful for you if everything is not planed out correctly. If you have a pet such as a dog, they will also feel the stress of your move because they will see you packing boxes and moving around of furniture and be scared and stressed out also.
Tips to help you pet deal with moving day:
1) Long walk. Yes, you will be busy but your dog is part of the family and taking it for a long walk the day of your move will relax and calm your dog. Also it can help you do some last minute thinking to make sure everything is packed.
2) Snacks. Everybody loves snacks and your poochie does to. Make sure to pick up a bag of yummy treats for your furry friend and show them some love during your move by giving them a treat every now and then. Apples and carrots make good health snacks.
3) Toys. Ok the squeaks of the squeaky ball might drive you a little crazy during your move but maybe a toy that doesn’t squeak that much such as doll or bone to keep your dog entertained.
4) Bed. Nothing is better to your dog then its soft, comfortable bed that it has slept on for so long.
If you have packed all your dogs toys and items into moving boxes already then try to make an effort to make your dog feel comfortable. You can even take one of your empty moving boxes and create a bed for your dog by simply placing a T-shirt or towel inside so they can lay down and relax. Remember dogs and other animals are not like humans, they don’t understand what moving is but can feel stress and pressure of it because of the energy you let off. So take a little time out for your doggie to help them cope with your move, after all, they love you.
