Having telepathically communicated with your beloved pets for as long as you've had them, you probably know exactly when they're happy or cranky. There's never a better time for you to utilize this important skill than during a move.
Know what it'll take for your pets to be comfortable during each stage of travel: before, during and after. Relocating isn't just stressful for people. It'll be equally stressful for your pets. As with humans, pets are very sensitive to changes in their surroundings. Seeing the house become gradually emptier may agitate your pets. If you are moving locally, take your pets on several visits to the new home before you move in to familiarize them with their new habitat.
