When you arrive to your new space, help your pet adjust by introducing them slowly. Start them off in one room with familiar furniture including their bed, crate, toys, food and water bowls so that they will immediately recognize the familiar items. Slowly open up new rooms as your pet starts to get comfortable. This will help your pet feel less overwhelmed in an unfamiliar environment.
