Pets and moving...

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Boutique Moving

Regardless if you are moving around the corner or across the country, pets pose a special concern during the moving process.   

On packing and moving day the doors to residence will be open...a lot!  It would be very easy for a pet to get loose.  In addition, the constant coming and going of strangers into and out of the house may be upsetting...especially to dogs.   

It's highly recommended that you make an accommodation for your pets with a trusted friend or at a local pet resort on moving day.  Why not treat your favorite friend(s) to a day at the pet spa?

I have two dogs.  One travels very easy.  The other gets sick and you know what happens there.

Harry, just a note, let the friends know if that pet has priors in attitude. My dogs will think she can eat the biggest person and she's a pom.

Thanks Jeff, I agree.  Making whomever is caring for your pet, while you're busy moving aware of how they act/react, is a key point.  H

John...a pet that does not travel well can make for a miserable experience.   Maybe sedation?  Not for the dog, but for you!  LOL
