- Your pets will be moving in and out of the house fairly often. Make sure they are on a leash or in a crate in case they run off! Even if they do not have a history of doing that, understand that they will be in a stressful state of mind.
- The most difficult days for your pets are the unloading/loading days. Keep a close eye on them, or have a family member be in charge of keeping them calm.
- If you are moving between states, make sure you are aware of state laws for your pets, as some states have stricter laws than others.
- Lastly, don't rush things. It stresses you out, you are more prone to forgetting things or making mistakes, and your pets pick up the mood.
