    Default Advice for Moving House.....

    Hi Everyone - I am just so excited as I have a nice new house for me, Penny & Ollie.Its just wonderful but I was wondering if any one has any advice for settling in pups into a new house with minimal stress?

    I will have the place a couple of days before I move so i was going to just take them with me everytime I went so they started to get familar with it. I also have a couple of weeks off so they will be with me quite a bit before I leave them and go back to work.

    I am interested to hear your advice.

    If you dont stress about it and set up your rules from word go they should be fine

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!
    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.

    I've always kept the dog/s with me when I've moved. For nearly every trip. I have a hand's free leash thing (belts around my waist) and the dogs actually watch and help as everything goes in.

    It's probably more for my benefit than anything else. Moving interstate was more difficult though! I always thought it told them that because all of our things were there, and all of us are at the new place, they know they belong there too IYKWIM. I've also taken them back to the empty old house for the cleaning too. So they can see the house is empty and there's nothing more there.

    Actually we have moved house many times as well as interstate and Ralph is just happy as long as he is with us. He travelled in the car with hubby from Rockhampton to Newcastle. They took a couple of days coming down, so camped out at night.
    The cats were flown down and went into boarding at a vet.

    When we moved last year all I did was not wash their bedding the week before as I usually would of. It was hard to resist doing so as I wanted everything nice and fresh.

    They didn't bat an eye at the move just went off and explored.
