How To: Move With A Dog

You just got a job in Houston, Texas and you have to move, and you do not know what new challenges your baby, Sammy, will face being in a new place, and what if he chews up your furniture because he is scared…being a 6 month old puppy! At RNR Moving, we understand the challenges of moving with a pet, especially a puppy, but we want to assure you we have everything under control! Try these tips!

Before You Move

  1. Vet Appointment: Schedule an appointment with your veterinarian and be sure to:
    • Update shots, have a final general health check, etc.
    • Get copies of his records, including vaccination certificates
    • Get recommendations for new vets in your new city
    • Discuss sedatives or other mood altering aid options and decide if these would be helpful
  1. Microchip: This is a great way to ensure the safety of your pet. Be sure to update your online microchip data to be sure that if your pet does run off, he has a good chance to be returned to you.
  2. Carriers: If you plan on using a crate or carrier, get your baby familiar with it beforehand. Use it often so when moving day comes, it will be natural to request your pet get in his crate.

Moving Day
Be sure to make the experience as calm as it can be. A great way to do this is to set aside a room just for your baby and put a DO NOT DISTURB sign on the door. Tell your RNR Moving experts the situation, so they will not bother the animal.
