Moving House: Pet Edition

So you are moving home? That can be pretty stressful right? But add in pets into the mix, and it can be downright overwhelming! Not only have you got all the stress of packing, cleaning, and moving to deal with, but you have to ensure that your four-legged friend is happy and calm through the process as well. Not an easy task! But there are some things that you can do to make the whole process a little less stressful. Read on to find out more.

Try and get a visit in before hand

Obviously, you can't explain to you pet what is happening, and for them, it can be an unsettling experience moving from one place to another.

So one of the best things that you can do for your pet is to let them have a bit of a nose around your new place before you move in. Especially, if they have lived all of their life there in the home that you are leaving. This will allow them to get used to the sights, and more importantly smell of your new home. Meaning it will be a lot less of a shock when you come to the final moving day.

Unfortunately, this won't be suitable for all type pets and work best for one that can be kept on a lead. Such as dogs, cats, and rabbits.

The journey from house to house

Now, probably the most stressful part of moving when you have pets is the journey from the old place to the new place. Whereas a few type of pets like to ride in a car, most don't, and they find it difficult.

That means you have the added worry of checking that your fur babies are OK, as well as getting all of your items to the new place.

To help you with this why not use a professional furniture removalists service? Then they can worry about the heavy lifting, packing, and transportation. Leaving you and your car free for your furry friends. Which can make the whole journey a lot less stressful for everyone involved.

Keep them out of the house when cleaning it

The next issue that you may come across when you are in the process of moving home when you have pets is cleaning. Your fur babies can be a real pain when you are trying to clean the property that you are moving out of.

The best thing to do in this situation is to keep them out of the house, or at least the out of the room that you are working in at the moment. Then just before you hand the keys over, you can go around again with the vacuum cleaner, and pet attachment and clean up any addition dander that they might have created.

It can also be a great idea to spray any curtains or soft furnishing that you are leaving with a refreshing spray that removes as well as masks any odors. As sometimes we get used to the smell that our pets can create. This will then make it more pleasant for the next residents.

If you have any other ideas to make the move easier, please share them in the comments.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
