Pets owners: Boston condos and apartments. If you’re thinking about adopting a cat or dog, you should always take into account the amount of space you have for your new addition for your Boston condo or apartment.
Boston has some nice open spaces, like the Boston Common that allows dogs; but if having a dog won’t work for your space, fear not! Finding a furry friend to share your space, however large or small your space may be, is easier than you think, and we’ve got a great guide for you.
Read on for some great tips about how to make a move with a pet that will keep you both happy, calm, and relaxed.
Before you leave your old Beacon Hill apartment for a new Boston Seaport condo, make sure that your pet is wearing a collar with tags that show your current phone number and your new address. His or her old tags, which show your old address, won’t be much help at all if your pet gets loose. If your pet is not microchipped, you may want to do that, too, just in case.
Some pets love going in the car; others hate it. The safest way to transport an animal in your vehicle is by keeping him or her in a crate or in a carrier, so take the time to get your pet used to whatever container you plan to use. You might also consider going on a few short, regional trips before the big day so your pet can get used to riding in the car for a distance.
Your vet knows your pet better than anyone other than you, and it’s likely that he or she has some great moving tips to offer you when it comes to moving with a pet a long distance. You’ll also want to collect your pet’s medical records so you can give them to your new vet once you’ve found one.
There is so much activity on moving day! Whether you’re moving out of your old place or into your new Boston Back Bay condo, it’s wise to separate your pet from the action. If you can get a friend or relative to watch your pet at their home during this process, great. If not, keep your dog or cat in a separate room with food, water, and toys, and be sure to check on him or her often.
5. STICK TO YOUR PET’S USUAL ROUTINE
Pets are creatures of habit and your pet will be expecting walks, bathroom breaks, treats, and meals at the same time no matter where you are. Adhering to his or her schedule will keep your pet calm and will put both of your minds at ease.
If you follow the above tips, you’ll find that moving with a pet is easier than you may have thought it would be. Remember, although this is a major change for all of you, your pet is happiest wherever you are.
