Moving with Pets – Things to Look for in Your New Neighbourhood
Whether you are living alone or with your family, moving is always a huge decision. There are a lot of hassles involved. Yet, thanks to the modern living, most of the hassle is now handled by moving companies that now offer services beyond transporting your belongings. Still, there are issues that you have to take care of on your own – if you are a pet lover with one or more furry friends in your household for instance. Now, while you might be willing to adjust and compromise, can you expect your pet to do the same?
The sad reality is, in the UK not every neighbourhood is pet friendly. Not all communities might welcome your pets as warmly as they deserve. So, if you happen to be an animal lover, you need to put your Sherlock hat on and look for clues that ensure comfort and quality life for your pets.
Here are a few tips that might help you make a move that is equally positive for your pets.
Number of Houses with Pets – It is a general rule of thumb. The more pets they have, the friendlier the community will be for your pets. However, you need to take into account the type of pet people prefer in the neighbourhood. You wouldn’t want to be the only cat owner in the midst of dog lovers.
Proximity to Parks – Canine or feline, all pets love a little walk in the park. See if there is a pet friendly park in close proximity to your home. You wouldn’t want to drive your pet to the park every day. It is wise to find a community where there is more than one park.
Availability of Vets – Remember, where there are pets, there have to be vets. In order to ensure a happy healthy life for your little friend, you should always consider this as one of the most critical criteria of finding a new place to live.
All these factors are important for the safety, security, and well-being of your pets. Just make sure you are hiring a pet friendly moving company to keep the experience as pleasant as possible. At Buckley’s Removals Manchester, we want your pets to have just as happy a move as you.
