Moving with Pets
Moving is considered the third most stressful life event people experience after death and divorce.1 No one enjoys the process of moving as it’s a disruption to their daily routine. You must take care of certain relocation tasks such as changing your address on important documents, scheduling a service cancellation for the old address and a service activation for the new one with various service providers. It all can take a toll on you! It can also take toll on your furry friends. House pets don’t take too kindly to moving, the sudden change to their environment agitates them. Nevertheless, our Little Rock movers can share helpful tips to make it easier on you when moving with pets.
Preparing for the Move to Little Rock
Before you get started on preparing your furry friend for the move to Little Rock, make sure to have everything in order regarding their wellbeing. Start by giving your pet’s veterinarian a visit to retrieve health records and new vet recommendations in Little Rock. While you’re visiting the vet, make sure to also ask them about rabies tag regulations in the state of Arkansas if you’re moving long-distance with pets from another state. Don’t forget to update your furry friend’s microchip ID tag with the new address, best contact number in case they get lost during the move to Little Rock.
After the trip to the vet, prepare an overnight kit if you’re moving with pets across the country. This kit can include essentials for your furry friend such as toys, food, treats, cat litter, a pooper scooper, and grooming tools. The overnight kit should keep your pet somewhat calm during the move to Little Rock.
Caring for Your Pet During the Move
Once our trusted movers have all your belongings packed up securely using our Little Rock packing services, it’s time to pay extra attention to your pet’s behavior during the move. If you’re moving long-distance with pets, contact a few hotels along the route to check if they’re pet-friendly. Having a safe, indoor place to rest for the night can further help soothe your pet’s mood as you move to Little Rock.
If you’re moving long-distance with pets by car, you can always have a kennel to keep them safe throughout the trip. Before your moving day, train your pet to sleep in the kennel and reward them with treats to help them get used to it for the move. You can even drape a blanket or sheet over the kennel to ensure the changing environment doesn’t agitate your pet.
After the Move with Your Pet
After you move to Little Rock, continue to help your pet remain calm and get used to the new house. While our Little Rock movers are carefully unloading your boxes and furniture from the truck, designate an area of the house for your pet to stay safe as our movers haul your belongings inside. This will also help your furry friend become familiar with their new home after the move. If you have a large dog, you can also tie them to a tree or a pole in the yard to keep them safe from the moving chaos.
