Knowing how to move your dog to a new home requires some advance planning

You are moving to a new house, miles away. You have attended to each and every detail and think you have it under control; however, your biggest concern is how to move your dog to the new home and how to help him adapt once you get there.

Know in advance, this is going to be stressful on your canine. The actual move may be a hardship causing anxiety and acclimating to new surroundings is going to take some time.

If possible, pack incrementally rather than all at once. Doing this helps maintain the pet's regular schedule and cuts down on anxiety. Purchase a crate or kennel if you don't already have one and introduce the animal to it well in advance of the move. It is advised the animal's nails be clipped before staying in or traveling in a carrier unit. You don't want him to get his nails hooked in crevices or in the door. Canines usually travel quite contentedly in a carrier.

While in transit

When you are in the actual process of moving, keep the pet contained and away from the moving personnel. All the hubbub may frighten the animal.
