Preparing Your Pets For A Move That Will Separate Them

When making long distance moves, you will sometimes have to move and leave some or all your pets behind for one reason or the other. This means that they will have to get used to living far from each other and far from you. This will usually cause some anxiety on them because they will need to adjust to new environments, as well as new faces.

Here are some tips to help you prepare them before the mover arrives to take you away.

Get them a nice and comfortable new home

There is nothing as difficult for your pet as having to deal with separation when they are in a harsh new environment. This makes the stress even more unbearable for them.

To make life easier for your pet, get each one a nice new home where they will be well taken care of. This will help distract them and it will make the separation more bearable and less stressful.

Take their old toys and bedding with them

Even if they are in a new environment, it will be helpful to see something familiar. This is where old toys and beddings come in handy. Once you have found a new home for them, pack their beddings and old toys for use in the new home. The same applies to any pets that you move with to your new home.

Let them sample their new home

When you have to work late, make arrangements with your pet’s new owner to take the pet in for a night instead of hiring a sitter. This will help the pet get used to the new environment so that it will not be as difficult as moving to a totally new place. If your pet is a dog, it’s important that you don’t take him for a walk to their new home because they might get familiar with the route and run off when they get a chance.

Take Their Old Toys And Bedding With Them

Let them keep their vet and pet sitters

If possible, let your pet’s new home be somewhere nearby where they can keep their vet, pet sitters and walkers. The familiar face every evening as they take a walk will help ease any separation anxiety that they might be having.

Use the same pet food and grooming products in the new home

If you have control over this, talk to the new owners about your pet’s favorite treats and the pet food that you use. Have them use the same brand of food at least for some time until they are used to their new life then they can consider changing if they need to. You can send them any surplus you might have.

Just like with human beings, separation is not easy for your pets. Whether you are separating them as a result of a long distance move or other reasons, it’s a good idea to make sure that each pet ends up in a safe and comfortable home.

★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
