At Monterra, our residents can come home to a space that is ideal for every lifestyle. When moving, it can be a difficult to adjust not only for you but for your furry friend, as well. We’ve gathered a few tips to make moving to our pet friendly apartments in Cooper City a breeze and to put you both at ease. View our tips and find your new home at one of our one bedroom, two bedroom, or three bedroom homes.

#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. Their routine will give them a sense of normalcy while everything around them changes and it will give them a chance to explore their new home. 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, if your pet happens to wander off, they are more likely to get lost in 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 and an updated phone number 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 and you won’t want to dig through boxes after a long day of getting moved 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. By having a few security items in their overnight back, your pet will become more comfortable and it will let them know that they are in their new 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 let them explore their new home and then venture out into more areas of the community.
