Create a game plan

Whether you want to keep the lawn pristine or simply need some alone time to pack, taking your dog to a pet sitter or kennel can be a great option for a short amount of time to complete all the necessary moving to-dos. Creating a game plan ensures that both your dog and you know what to expect.

Find dog-friendly locations

If regular walks and outdoor time are required and enjoyed by your dog, it’s important to search out dog-friendly locations in your new area. Whether it’s a dog park or a local café, checking beforehand ensures there is no miscommunication further down the road.

Backyard Prep

Will your new home come with a yard, and is that yard properly fenced? While viewing potential homes and after moving your pet to a new home, it’s important to pay attention to both the safety and visibility in order to protect your pet from being stolen and kept safe.
