How to Ace the Pet Relocation When Moving

9 April 2015 / By Nick Royle / Domestic Relocation  / export  / Guest Blog  / HR  / International Assignment  / Relocation  / 

CatIf you’re relocating with a family, the stress of finding an area for not only yourself but your spouse and/or kids can be enough to make the process frustrating. But when there are animals coming with you as well, the amount of homes available can drop, your travel plans can become complicated and you may need to re-evaluate preferences; all potentially difficult situations.

However, it doesn’t have to be that way if you’re prepared going into the move. Below are some tips for you to keep in mind for a smooth pet relocation process for you and your furry family members.

Renting with Pets and What to Expect

There are some things to consider when renting with an animal or two. There is often a pet deposit, similar to one month’s rent that would be put down with the potential to get back when the lease is up, should there be no issues. On top of that deposit, there may be monthly pet rent. This can be a minimal amount, or it could be a significant one. It all depends on the rules as well as how many and what kind of animals are living with you. Another thing to look into is pet insurance. This will help the landlord feel more comfortable with any possible future damages that may occur. This could also be the deciding factor between you and another potential renter when the landlord makes his decision as to whom he would like to lease. Create a pet resume to showcase your animal(s)  and pull at the heartstrings of the landlord. At the end of the day, you should always be upfront about the type and weight of animals coming along with you.

Traveling with Pets to a New Location

Moving and relocating can cause stress, but it could also affect your pets as well. Packing with your animals walking around can leave them feeling anxious and slightly abandoned since they have no idea what’s going on. Consider having them put in pet day camp during the process, or have them dropped off at a relative’s house for the time being. If you’re flying, make sure you are aware of everything you need to know regarding traveling with your pet. Things to pay extra attention to include specific regulations, carrier sizes accepted and to double check that the airline is even pet friendly! Don’t wait until the last minute.

Adjusting to a New Home

While unpacking, the animal is going to be curious of their new surroundings. If you have a fenced in yard, let them roam around outside and get familiar with their new home. In case you have dogs, watch out for them trying to mark their territory and be patient; this is an adjustment for them as well. Check out dog parks or walking trails near your new home and take them for a hike to let off some energy. Make a new routine that you or another family member can stick to. They’ll feel at home in no time.
