Making the transition to a new apartment can be a difficult transition, especially if you’re moving with your pets. To make this easier, our pet friendly apartments in Cooper City have gathered a few helpful tips to make moving to a new home easier for you and your furry friend.
#1 Keep a Routine
When moving, your pet’s whole world is changing. Keeping them to a strict routine is key when it comes to making the transition easier. Get them used to going outside at certain times and try to stick as closely as possible to the schedule, even on the weekends. A routine is the perfect way to give your pets some stability when making a big move and is more likely to make the transition easier for everyone.
#2 Update Their Information
Today, most pets have microchips in them, just in case they get lost. Being in a new environment, your pet is more likely to get lost because they’re unfamiliar with their new surroundings. It’s important that you call the vet to make sure that your new address is associated with your pet’s microchip. You also need to make sure that you get new tags for your pets that have your new address on them.
#3 Prepare an Overnight Kit
When you’re in the middle of moving, it’s often hard to remember exactly which box specific belongings are in. Prepare an overnight kit for your pet that has food, kitty litter, and their favorite toys so that you don’t have to go searching through all of your boxes just to feed them. This will also help them adjust and make the new apartment feel more like home.
#4 Avoid the Action
Moving is overwhelming, so keeping your pets away from all the action will help them transition better. Immersing them into a new environment with new animals will be very overwhelming for your pets and it more likely to stress them out. Gradually letting them into their new community environment will help them adjust.
