Tips to Settle Your Dog Into His New Home

Moving can be traumatic for any pet and care should be taken with their travel arrangements and introducing them to their new home.  Small dogs should travel in a pet carrier, but larger dogs may need to be crated if they are not used to going with you in the car. If they are used to car travel, make sure they are securely a harnessed to keep them and you safe.

Once you arrive at your new home, don’t just let the dog out to explore his new neighbourhood, especially if the removalists are still unloading furniture. He may run away, or get in the way and cause someone to trip and fall, not good if they are carrying heavy furniture.
