Get Your Pet to Relax During the Move


Your chosen Pasadena moving company will be carrying a lion’s share of belongings to your new home. But it won’t be taking everything. You’ll likely be carrying some important cargo, as well. Like kids. And pets. No doubt, you’ve briefed your children about the transition. But likely the family dog or cat didn’t get the same heads up. Yes, the best you can do with Rover is help the bewildered pooch adjust to its new living space. Many Pasadena moving companies recommend the following to help with the transition. 

Familiarity First. Every dog or cat worthy of the name has its personal favorites – bed, toys, dessert. Take as many of these pet-pleasers along as possible, placing them in well-known locations (or as close to well-known as possible) throughout your new castle. If a cloth toy was located in a living room corner, that’s where it should go in the new home. As we Pasadena movers know, creating this familiarity will help reduce anxiety and restore Rover’s sense of control … even if you haven’t quite recovered yours.  

Reduce Stress. While you’re coping with anxieties of your own, you’ll have the added pleasure of dealing with pet stress. Depending on the personality and emotional makeup of your dog or cat, some methods work better than others. Certain pets will do better by clinging to your side, while others prefer being in another room, distancing themselves from the chaos of moving. And then there are those who’d rather be far, far away. For this select group, a temporary stay at a friend’s or relative’s house is a comforting choice.
