Top 5 Tips On Moving with A Dog
Pet owners see their dogs as part of the family which is why it is highly important during a move that dogs are well looked after and kept safe at all times. If you’ve moved home with your dog before, you’ll understand the challenges that can be met. Moving can be a stressful time for all the family, and the change in location can also affect your furry friend, so in order to prevent any upheaval, follow our top 5 tips on moving with your dog.
Plan Transportation Methods Way Ahead of Time
If the journey to your new home is a long one, ensure you plan it out before you head off. When moving with your dog, it’s essential to take resources with you for the journey, such as water, food, toys, and blankets. To break he journey up a little, why not stop for a break to let your dog get some well needed fresh air? Even if the journey isn’t very long, you should try and prepare for all eventualities to ensure your dog is happy and comfortable throughout the journey.
Register with a Vet Before You Move
Unfortunately, you never know when anyone in your family may fall ill, including your pets. This is why it’s important to register with a new vet before you move to your new home. You won’t regret it if your dog falls ill. If it’s not an option to plan in advance, make it a priority for when you arrive at your new home.
Give your Dog Time to Settle in
A new home can be confusing for any pet, so make sure to give your dog the time to settle in and get used to their new surroundings. Walk around with your dog so that it gets used to the new rooms. Place their food in a set place and try and train your dog to remember where the important places are. The same goes with outside; to avoid your dog getting lost, go outside with it.
Shower Your Dog with Attention
Your dog will need lots of love and attention once you have moved as he or she may be feeling confused. Small, frequent meals and lots of cuddles should prevent your dog from trying to go back to your old house and keep them happy and comforted.

What Our Clients Say
‘This is just to thank you and your team for the fantastic service during my move from Crouch End to Bexley. Everything was packed beautifully and the crew who moved me were fantastic, remaining friendly and good-humoured throughout. The piano was successfully moved from the first floor and everything arrived intact. It was really worth having the packing service as well, and my stress levels were kept well under control, so well done!’

‘Excellent company – gave me a really good price and fantastic service. We had the full packing service on the Monday, then they finished packing, and moved us on the Tuesday – on time and on schedule. Kav even had five guys on the job, on the Tuesday morning, which kept us on schedule. No breakages, everything was well packed: highly recommended.
We’ll be moving again in the next year, this time with a piano – we hope to use Pers Removals again!’

‘Three charming chaps arrived to move my piano from Maidenhead to West London. They took time to plan the moving process and communicated well with each other. They had several steps to cope with inside the house, and a few outside. I was expecting the piano to be bumped about – but not at all. Such care was taken – the piano could have been a newborn baby and would have come to no harm! Now that I have found Pers I will definitely use them again.’
