Moving can be a stressful time for the whole family. Parents are changing jobs, kids are changing schools, and there’s never enough time to get everything done. Amid all the chaos, don’t forget that your dog can sense these stresses, too. Be sure to keep him in mind when building those checklists of ‘to-dos’ and ‘don’t-forgets’. Here are some things I have learned along the way that will help make a move more comfortable for your pooch.
- Make an appointment with your vet before you leave. Here are some things you’ll want to handle on that visit:
– Get any check-ups or vaccinations due in the next couple of months. It may take a while to get settled into your new home, and taking care of this now will be one less thing you’ll have to stress over on the other end. Be sure to get any vaccinations at least three days prior to your move so your dog doesn’t experience side effects while in route.
