Moving With Your Pet – How To Make It Work

It is an inevitable fact of life for most that at some point you will find yourself moving your residence. While you might be excited about your new home, no one is excited about the process of getting there. One of the sometimes painful problems associated with moving can be figuring out a smooth transition while keeping your pets.

Moving and complications with landlords are the two top reasons pets get taken to shelters. They simply no longer fit into the families lifestyle. What can you do to avoid this heartbreaking scenario?

 Moving For Renters

If you’re a renter be sure that the landlord allows pets. If they do, ask if there is an extra pet deposit required. If pets aren’t allowed consider asking your landlord if they would with an extra deposit and a reference from your previous landlord. Some might be willing to budge on this if you offer them enough security. Never push the subject though.

Consider how your pet might affect your neighbors too. If you have a dog that likes to bark, try to avoid apartments or tight spaces where complaints might be made against you.

Moving For Buyers

If you’re looking to buy and new home and plan to have pets, be sure you’re keeping that in mind as you shop. Ensure there is plenty of outdoor space in which your pet can be contained and not be a nuisance to neighbors. Ask the realtor or other locals if there are any specific ordinances regarding pets before you move in. Some communities ban certain breeds of dogs, have leash laws, or noise ordinances. Know your community before you commit to living it.


No matter what your situation, some thoughtful planning and research could save you and your pet a lot of heartbreak
