We have been so excited to welcome Mollie into our home and shower her with love. She is the most wonderful, affectionate dog and I know this all comes down to her breeding and the amazing love and care Karen and Graeme give to raising their puppies. Every step of this process has been made easier by Karen who goes above and beyond - you can see her passion for good, ethical breeding shining through. We felt well informed and well supported throughout the process of waiting for a puppy and then bringing Mollie home. We are so grateful we found Pureheartbul!

Moving with Your Pet

Strategies for a Successful Transition

Moving into a new home can be stressful for everyone, including our pets. Pets can experience anxiety and confusion when moving to a new environment, so it’s important to take steps to ensure your move goes as smoothly as possible for your furry friend. With good planning, preparation, and attention to your pet’s needs, you can help your pet stay safe and happy as you navigate this transition together. Check out the following tips from Pure Heart Bullmastiffs to learn more!

Interstate Moving on a Budget

Moving between states adds a few additional complications to the relocation process, especially if you’re on a tight budget. If you don’t have a lot of money, it’s important to plan ahead and be resourceful. One way to save money is to arrange to stay with family or friends in the area while you search for local employment and housing options. This will give you a chance to get your bearings and start exploring your new city without the pressure of having to pay for a hotel or rental accommodation.

Just make sure your hosts are happy to accommodate your pets as well. Not all households are pet-friendly, so it’s important to communicate your needs and make sure everyone is on the same page.

Keep Your Pet Calm

As you prepare for your move, take steps to keep your pet calm. Reducing stress in pets starts with a balanced and nutritious diet. If you have a dog, make sure you’re feeding high-quality dog food made from all-natural protein sources. You may also want to consider offering your pet calming treats or supplements that contain natural ingredients like chamomile or valerian root, which can help soothe anxiety and promote relaxation.

Also keep in mind that the home itself can be a source of stress. Living spaces that have clutter and are untidy can affect anxiety levels in both people and pets, so take steps to declutter, clean, and organize rooms throughout your home. Open the curtains or blinds to let in as much natural light as possible, and bring in a few pet-safe houseplants, which also help to purify the air.

Stick to Your Routine

According to The Dodo, pets thrive on predictability. Sticking to a consistent routine with your pet can help them feel calm and comfortable throughout the moving process. Aim to maintain a sense of familiarity for your four-legged friend by feeding and exercising your pet as normal. At the same time, adhering to a routine can help you stay organized and on track during the hectic process of moving!

Visit the Vet

Before moving with your pet, take a trip to the vet. This will help you ensure that your dog is healthy and up-to-date on all necessary vaccinations and preventive care. This is particularly important if you are moving to a new area where your dog may be exposed to different diseases or parasites. Your vet can also provide you with any necessary paperwork or documentation, such as health certificates or records, that may be required for travel or for registering your dog in a new location.

Use a Carrier for Safe Transportation

Using a carrier is an essential safety measure when transporting your pet during a move. A carrier provides a secure and comfortable space for your pet, protecting them from potential hazards and reducing the risk of injury or escape. Make sure to choose a carrier that is appropriate for the size of your pet with enough room for them to stand up and turn around.

If your pet is new to traveling in a carrier, Roverlund suggests introducing them to it gradually. The last thing you want is to create unnecessary stress by closing your pet into a carrier for the very first time on moving day.

Moving with your pet requires careful planning and preparation to ensure a smooth transition for the whole family, especially if you’re moving between states on a tight budget. By feeding your pet a high-quality diet, maintaining your regular routine, and acclimating your pet to a travel carrier before your move, you can keep your furry companion calm and comfortable during your move and beyond!
