3 Tips for Moving With Pets, Ewa, Hawaii

Relocating to a new home is always exciting. However, the process of moving can also be stressful for the entire family, including your pets. The team at Honolulu’s M. Dyer & Sons takes pride in helping customers with every aspect of the transition, including providing advice on transporting pets to their new house. Here are their top three tips.

3 Moving Tips for Your Pet

1. Invest in a Pet Carrier

MovingPet carriers are incredibly helpful for transporting dogs and cats by automobile. They can put your pet at ease and reduce unnecessary stress during transport. Before moving day, invest in a pet carrier that’s the right size for your animal. Leave it out for a few days or even weeks leading up to the move so your furry friend becomes familiar with it and starts to recognize it as a safe place. 

2. Bring Them to Day Care

On the actual day your movers arrive, consider taking your pet to day care or boarding them. This can reduce stress and prevent any potential escapes as the movers go in and out of your home. If boarding isn’t right for your pet, leave your animal in a calm, quiet setting that feels familiar, like with a trusted friend or family member they already know. 

3. Put Familiar Items in a Room

Before you settle your pet into your new residence, try to unpack an area or room. If your pet has a favorite chair, blanket, or pillow, take it out and put it in the room to reduce their anxiety. With smells they recognize and fewer boxes in sight, your furry friend will feel more relaxed.
