When's the best time to take my puppy home?

The best time to take your new puppy home is when your puppy reaches at least 8 weeks old. Between 8-12 weeks is the best time ensuring your puppy learns what he/she can before he/she leaves mum/siblings

When can I take my Puppy Outside?

Its best to wait 10-14 days after your puppy has received their final vaccinations before introducing them to the wonders of local parks, walks and beaches.

When's the best time to Socialize my puppy?

Exposing your puppy to unfamiliar situations and people at a young age will benefit your puppies social experiences. 

You can start by introducing your puppy to a 'safe" dog(s) - A dog you know that's fully vaccinated. It's safest to do this in a familiar environment such as your own backyard or indoors. Puppy School/ Training will optimise Human and other dog socialisation once they are fully vaccinated.

Moving With Pets

Creating a seamless moving experience for you and your pets involves meticulous planning and consideration. Moving can be just as stressful for our furry friends as it is for us, if not more. But with careful preparation, you can ensure your pets' transition is as smooth and stress-free as possible. This comprehensive guide will walk you through everything you need about moving with pets, from preparation to settling into your new home.

1. Preparation is Key

  • Start Early: Begin your moving preparations well in advance. Pets can pick up on changes in their environment and your stress levels, so keeping their routine as normal as possible leading up to the move is essential.

  • Visit the Vet: Schedule a visit to the vet for a general check-up before moving. This is the perfect time to ensure your pet is up to date on vaccinations, discuss sedation options if necessary, and get copies of your pet's medical records. Ask your vet for recommendations for a new vet near your new home.

  • Update Identification: Ensure your pet's microchip information and ID tags are updated with your new address and contact information. This is crucial in case your pet gets lost during the move.

2. Packing and Planning

Keep a Familiar Routine: Keep your pet's routine as stable as possible. Regular feeding times, walks, and playtime can help reduce their stress.

Packing Their Things: Pack a separate bag for your pet that includes all their essentials, such as food, water, bowls, leashes, toys, bedding, and any necessary medications. This will ensure you have everything readily available during the move and the first few days after arriving at your new home.

Travel Arrangements: If you're moving a long distance and need to fly, research airline pet policies well in advance. Ensure your pet is comfortable in a carrier or vehicle for road trips. Plan your route with pet-friendly stops, and consider booking pet-friendly hotels if you must stop overnight.


3. Moving Day

A Safe Space: On the day of the move, keep your pets in a quiet, safe, and secure area, away from the hustle and bustle. This could be a room in your home that empties last or a friend's house. Could you make sure they have access to their bed, toys, and water?

Transporting Your Pet: When it's time to move, ensure your pet is safely secured in a carrier or with a harness and leash. Never leave your pet unattended in a vehicle, especially on hot days.

4. Settling Into Your New Home

Pet-Proof Your New Home: Before letting your pet explore their new environment, pet-proof it. Check for any potential hazards and secure windows and doors.

Gradual Introduction: Slowly introduce your pet to their new home. Start by confining them to one area or room where they can adjust to the smells and sounds. Gradually increase their access to other parts of their home as they become more comfortable.

Establish a Routine: As soon as possible, establish a routine for your pets, like before the move. Consistent feeding times, walks, and playtime can help them adjust quickly.

Outdoor Exploration: If you have a dog, introduce them to the neighbourhood with short walks, gradually increasing the distance as they become more familiar with their new surroundings. For cats, especially outdoor cats, take it slow and monitor their outdoor time until you're confident they can find their way home.

5. Health and Safety

  • New Vet: Register your pet with a new vet as soon as possible. It's essential to establish this relationship early in case of emergencies.

  • Monitor Behavior: Pay close attention to your pet's behaviour during and after the move. Changes in behaviour or appetite could indicate stress. Give them extra attention and consider seeking advice from a vet if you're concerned.


6. Final Thoughts

Moving with pets requires additional planning and consideration, but following these tips can help ensure a smooth transition for your entire family. Remember, pets need time to adjust to new environments as humans do. With patience, love, and attention, your pet will soon feel right at home in your new place.

Moving doesn't have to be stressful for you or your pets, so get the right help from professional removalists. With the right preparation, a thoughtful approach, and a little patience, you can make the transition as smooth as possible.
