Are you a pet parent looking for Homes for Sale in Alaska, that can accommodate not just you but your furry friend? We can help you out with narrowing down your search. But do you know what else we can assist you with? That’s right, making your animal companion more comfortable with the home you’ve chosen to purchase.
Below, we have put together several suggestions that should benefit you and your pet/s:
- Establish a consistent routine
Just like humans, pets too, can feel agitated when there’s a sudden change in their daily schedule or everyday atmosphere. So, what should you do to make your furry buddy feel at home again? Easy, just like humans, they need to feel a sense of familiarity with the new place. (If your animal companion used to have a dog door or a cat flap, have that installed in your new place!) But before you fully let your pet have free range, you should take note to keep them on a leash so that they don’t run away for the first few days.
- Bring a set of favorite items
What fun memorabilia from your old home do you plan to take to your new one? Most people bring along picture frames, trinkets, and artworks, to help them settle in. And to be honest, you can do pretty much the same thing for your pet. You can take along their blanket, squishy toys, and treats. With these items readily available, your furry friend should be able to feel more at ease at the new environment (Being a Real Estate in Anchorage, Alaska).
- Offer a good amount of patience
By the time you move, you may have noticed your little one feeling a bit restless and antsy. (You, yourself might be feeling the same apprehensions even.) But that’s okay! With time, all of this shall pass and both you and your pet should be able to adjust to the new surroundings. What’s important is you give your buddy all the time and understanding they need to get comfortable, and they will be able to help you settle in just as well. Take time to bond together as much as you can. You can either go for a walk around the block or simply have a relaxing session together in each other’s company. Remember, the more secure your pet feels, the less likely they will end up acting out their stress.
