Moving House Can Be A Stressful Time For Our Pets

even further when there's a pet dog involved. All of the changes involved in making the move can be even more
challenging when you have a dog.

These pet calming products can help your dog to get
through this worrying period. They bring a degree of calm and serenity which can be very useful when dealing
with dogs made distraught by the hectic comings and goings of moving house.
A good plan whilst you are still in your old house and confusion is beginning to reign is to designate a room to
remain just for your pet while the move proceeds around them. Place their regular bed, familiar toys, food and
water bowls into the room. This way they'll have a reassuring (if rearranged) space to spend the moving
process in. It will also minimize the chance of escape by anxious animals while people are coming and going from
your house more than usual.
