How to Help Your Pet Adjust to Their New Home — September 10, 2020 by Julia Weaver

Brown and white dog adjusting to their new home

From packing to unpacking, moving is stressful and exhausting, and it can feel that way for pets too. They don’t understand what’s happening and why they’re losing the home they feel safe in. Whether you’re moving to Atlanta, GA with your elderly dog, or adopting a puppy and bringing them home to Dallas, TX, it’ll take your fur friend some time to settle in. What can you do to help your pet feel comfortable in their new home? We’ve gathered tips from the experts on how to make the transition easier on your pet and how to help them adjust to their new home.

Give your dog time to adapt

When you and your dog first move to a new home, it will seem to your pet that life is full of unpacked boxes and lost routines with a new neighborhood for daily walks and new 4-legged neighbors to meet, which can be unsettling for your dog. Give yourself and your dog time to adapt to your new neighborhood, but make plans to throw a Welcome to the Neighborhood Barkday party in your backyard for your pup a few weeks down the road. Everyone loves a good party, especially the neighborhood dogs – and it’s a great way to make sure you get those boxes unpacked. – Properly Posh Pets
