Moving an old dog into a new home? If you have just booked Sydney removalists and are wondering how the furry-legged friends in your home are going to adjust to the new one then read on for our 7 easy tips on settling your pets into a new home. Whether it's cat or dog, kitten or puppy there is always a way to teach an old dog new tricks!

But most importantly follow these steps to make it less stressful for your pets when moving house.

1. The Ultimate Moving House Checklist for Pets

When moving house with pets, always remember to pack essentials such as food, water, bowls, toys and bedding. You might also want to include a favourite blanket or toy to help them feel at home in their new surroundings. Don’t pack your pet box for the movers, keep it on hand with you. You don’t want a hungry pooch with no food after a long day of moving!

It's also important to pack medications if your pet needs them and to have all their vaccinations up-to-date. If you're travelling by air, always make sure you contact your airline well in advance to check their pet travel policy and requirements.

2. Update Their Information

Let your vet know you're moving and ask for their advice on how to make the move as stress-free as possible for your pet. They may also have some tips on how to slowly introduce your pet to their new home.

If you have a new address, make sure to update your pet's microchip and registration details. This will help ensure they can always be returned to you if they ever get lost.

If your pet is lost, having up-to-date contact information on them will help ensure they can be returned to you as soon as possible. Make sure to include your name, phone number, and any other relevant contact info on your pet's tag, collar, or microchip.


3. Secure the New Place

Double-check the backyard of your new home for any escape holes. If you have a cat it may be best to keep them inside for a week so they become accustomed to the new sights and smells. Unpack the animals belongings on the first day so the pets can smell familiar items in the new home. 

By following these tips, you can help keep your pet safe and reduce the risk of them getting lost or stolen.

4. Keep your pets away from the action

Pets can become easily overwhelmed when there is a lot of activity going on. This includes during moving day. To help your pet adjust to their new home, try to keep them away from all the hustle and bustle of moving day. This may mean keeping them in a separate room or in an area of the house where there is less activity. Or asking a family or friends to pet sit at their house. And if that isn't possible maybe it could be a good idea to pop your pooch or cat into a boarding kennel for a couple of days. 


5. What every Sydney removalist wants you to know before you move

Before you move, there are a few things every Sydney removalist wants you to know before hiring a removal company.

  • First and foremost, always contact your removalist well in advance to discuss your moving date and any specific requirements you may have.

  • Make sure to pack all of your belongings securely and label each box with what room it should go in at your new home.

  • If you're moving locally with pets, be sure to pack their food, water, medications, and toys. You should also update their microchip and registration information before you move.

  • Finally, try to keep your pet away from the action on moving day and give them time to adjust to their new surroundings in the days and weeks following the move.

6. Moving with Fish

If you're moving with fish, there are a few things you'll need to do to make the move as stress-free as possible.

  1. First, make sure to pack a small tank or fish bag for them to stay in during the move. This will help keep them from becoming stressed and will also ensure that they have access to water. 

  2. Finally, make sure to pack food and other supplies for your fish so they don't go hungry during the move.

  3. By following these tips, you can help make the move with fish as stress-free as possible.


So, if you're planning on moving house and you don't want to leave your furry friend behind, remember these tips. They'll help make the move as stress-free (for both of you) as possible.
