    Hi!!!

    We will be moving soon and this is Lizzie my bc mix first move since I got her from the shelter when she was a pup and our family dog Major a standerd poodle has moved in the past and done fine. The house that we are moving in to is vacant so we can take the dogs over any time before we move. Is it a good idea to take them over their and walk them before we move in to the house because where we are moving we will have a lot more space to walk our dogs? I know to keep all their stuff with me while we move. I am going to try to keep my bc with me all the time because we will have friends over helping us move from this house to our new one so there will be people every where and doors opening and closing all the time. Just was wondering if there is anything else that I could do to make it a none stessful thing for our dogs and us!!!

    Thanks:)

    I think it would be a great idea to take the dogs over to the house and walk them thru the house as well as the outside. In fact if you can do this a couple of times before the move all the better.

    Is Lizzie crate trained? The reason I am asking is that once the hustle & bustle of moving gets underway it may be too chaotic and stressful for her. Whichever place you expect to be at the most, either old house or new, I would actually crate her at that location in an out of the way spot. You can pop in for visits as well as taking her for needed walks and to check out the progression of the move with familiar items being in the new house.

    Good luck with the move. I'm sure Lizzie will be fine with your help.:)

    Lizzie is crate trained and house trained she was in her crate at night when she was a pup and when we left the house but now that she is 2 years old and will not tear everything up when I am not around she is able to have total freedom in the house at night and when we are gone. Lizzie loves her crate and will go in there and sleep when I am in the room with her. I just got her crate out of the attic the other day so that she would get used to it again so when we move some so she can have her "safe place" in her crate.
