Moving your Pets

moving_pets_dog-1At Cowboy Moving & Storage we are very ‘pet-friendly’ and we want your pets to have a good move too. Here are some suggestions to consider for moving day if you have pets.

  • Keep your pet’s routine as regular as possible during the pre-moving stages and moving day.
  • On the actual moving day it is often better for your pet if they stay at a friend’s home or be confined in a pet kennel or actually boarded with a kennel boarding company for the moving day or even overnight.
  • Boarding pets for the moving period may actually help reduce stress on the animal and avoid the risk of the pet getting upset and running away, or hiding in a moving box. We have seen cats in particular hide in boxes on moving day.

After the move and you are in your new place:

Once you are moved to your new place often pets need time to adjust to the new home.

  • To help your pet adjust be sure to have your pet’s food bowl, bedding and toys unpacked and available right away.
  • If your pet was transported in a kennel to the new home, place the kennel in a quiet, safe area and let the animal come out of the kennel when it is ready by leaving the kennel door open.
