Moving into a new home can be stressful for pets. To make things more comfortable for them, consider their needs while looking for a new residence. When moving day comes, keep your dog or cat in a quiet room or at a friend’s house. Also, gradually acclimate your pet to a crate before the actual move. Make sure your new home is pet-proof, paying attention to screens on windows and small places where they could get stuck. Once you move, give your pet time to settle in. Use one room as “home base” until they become adjusted.
