There's enough to worry about when it comes time to move so we've put together a pet relocation checklist to help make the move easier for you and your furry friend both to handle. Moving your family, whether it's across town or around the world, is stressful enough but if your pet is overly stressed to the results could be disastrous. Most animals are very territorial so when you move them away from their “turf” so to speak, it's going to create a lot of stress for them. But if you follow this checklist, you will be able to eliminate most problems and your four-legged friend will be much happier and easier to get along with. Make sure you carefully read our pet relocation checklist to ensure your pet makes an easy transition to his new home.
Whether your pet is a cat, a dog, a bird, a goldfish or a miniature pig, it relies on you to take care of it. Animals in the wild don't have to worry about silly little things like being uprooted from their home so you're pet isn't going to know how to cope with this new turn of events. Yes, even your little hamster will need extra care and attention during this stressful time. If you're moving just across town that's one thing. Your pets can travel with you in the car and that will help a lot toward relieving their anxiety. If you be traveling a long distance that requires traveling by airplane, you'll need to make some special arrangements for you buddy. And if you're planning a really big move to a different country entirely, then you need to start making plans as soon as possible.
