Ways to Help Your Dog Adjust to a Move

When someone changes a dog’s environment, like when they move to a new house, it can put stress on the animal. So what’s the best way to help acclimate a nervous dog to the new space? According to Tyler Peabody from The Doggy Dorm, there are a few different things that can be done:

1. Exercise, exercise, exercise. Different dogs have different levels of energy, but the thing they have in common is that they handle stress a lot better when they deplete some of their energy. That in mind, try wearing your dogs out by going on a long walk or to the park before bringing them into the new home for the first time.

2. Treat them like a puppy. When you get a new puppy, it’s a good idea to get them a crate, which serves as a comfortable place to go in order to acclimate. So when you move into a new house, provide your dogs with the same resource. Many people take a shirt, towel, or some other material with their scent on it to put in the crate; the familiar scent can help keep the dog at ease. However, if the dog isn’t used to the crate prior to the move, it’s a good idea to get them used to the concept before moving in.

3. Introduce or reintroduce the crate. Even if your dog no longer needs a crate or kennel, consider reintroducing them so they have a familiar place to go when they’re stressed out. Many people take a shirt, towel, or some other material with their scent on it to put in the crate; the familiar scent can help keep the dog at ease.

If you’re thinking of buying or selling a home and you need to get your dog crate-trained again, or you have a special dog that needs some real attention and training, Tyler is going to be your best contact. Give her a call at
