Moving with Pets
Many people have various ideas about the best way to move their pets. Ideally, the first thing to do is to research the best way to move your pet. It is not proper to put your pet in the bed of a pick-up truck or in the trunk of your car when you want to move. You must research the travel regulations for all the states that you may travel through if you are relocating out of the State. Also, a good knowledge of pet-friendly hotels will help you to get things in the right stream.
When you are set to move, you can keep your pet in one room until you are set to load them into the car. This keeps them from getting underfoot when items are being moved from the house or running away if a door is left open. Movement can create some measure of stress for your pet; they enjoy a more relaxed mood if they are placed in a safe haven before movement.
It is important to pack the basic things that your pets will like to have during a trip. This includes their favorite food, water and their spill-proof water dish. You can also keep their favorite treats which can be used to reward good behavior. Items such as the pet’s favorite blanket, toys, portable litter box, a scoop for overnight stops in a hotel room, etc; can be ideal based on your unique itinerary. It is essential that you leave enough room for interaction as well as ventilation no matter the vehicle you use for your movement.
There are pets which may need to be acclimatized to the carrier you intend to use before the D-day for movement. You can give them treats when they get used to entering and exiting the carrier. Also, you can take them on short trips in the carrier in order to make them get used to moving.
