Moving can be a very stressful undertaking. Between making arrangements for paying the mortgage or rent, setting up utilities in the new home, packing, cleaning, looking for a good moving company or convincing your family or friends to assist you, there are a lot of things to coordinate and never sufficient time. On top of all that work, do not forget to orient your dog to the move too.
Dog owners usually notice issues or changes in behavior during or after relocating to a new residence. Your beloved dog might begin to display destructive or attention-seeking behavior like chewing, digging holes, barking continuously, or even using the bathroom in your home, something they never used to do in your previous home. Given that you have not detected any changes in behavior yet, you might have still noticed your dog displaying other stress signs. Such signs include pacing, lip licking, panting, yawning, being clingy, whining, or diarrhea.
Here are some tips on how you can reduce the stress of moving for your dog.
