Moving is one of the most stressful events many of us will undergo. Spring and Summer are the two big moving times of the year; nobody would move in the cold and snow if they could help it! It can be physically and emotionally brutal no matter if you are downsizing (so much to get rid of) or upsizing (too many empty rooms). Just know, it’s not easy for your dog either.
When we moved from New York to Colorado, I thought I had prepared my dogs. We stopped numerous times along the way (much to my husband’s chagrin) to let the dogs out and feed them. We did not feed them in the car so they wouldn’t be car sick. We brought along their favorite blankets, toys and bedding, so something would seem familiar. Before we even brought anything into the house, I let the dogs sniff around and moved all their stuff in.
