If you’re preparing for a mover for your upcoming move in the Tampa, Florida, area, there may be one loose end you’ve forgotten about: your pets. In all of the excitement that comes with packing and finding a mover, it’s easy for your pets to be overlooked. It’s important to make sure they are ready for a mover and prepared for the changes that will be happening to their environment.
Below are some tips for preparing your pet for a mover:
Have your pets boarded for moving day. Having your pets underfoot on moving day can be dangerous for your mover, your pet, and your belongings. Instead, schedule them to spend the day with a friend or with a boarder, so they won’t get in the way.
Acquaint your pet with their new environment. Allow your pet to have free reign at their new home. Let them sniff around, explore, and get to know their new surroundings. If possible, lay out their bed and toys so they have familiar items around to make this transition a little bit easier.
Keep to your normal schedule. As much as you can, keep to your normal feeding and walking schedules for your pet. With so much changing around them, staying true to routines is important to make them feel safe.
Spoil your pet. It’s easy for pets to feel pushed aside or neglected during a move. Remember to take time out for them. Go for a long walk, play with them, and let them know they are still loved and adored.
