You've settled into your new space and you absolutely love it but you've noticed that your furry friend isn't quite comfortable with the new environment. Here are ways to make your new place more pet-friendly and comfortable not just for them but for you as well.
A Place to Eat and Nap
Give your pet a designated spot where they can eat or sleep
Much like you, your pets also need their own personal space that they can call their own. Designating a spot where they can sleep and eat will make them feel more at home. Their napping quarters should be located in place where they won’t be easily disturbed. Maximize the space under your stairs or tables by placing the dog beds there. For their feeding area, utilize areas such as the kitchen or laundry room where their bowls won’t easily be knocked over.
Give Them An Accessible Pathway
One of the things that your pet does when you move into a new space is to acclimatize themselves. To do so, you need to provide them with an accessible way in and out of the rooms. If you're living in a house with an open yard, you can also setup a pet-door to allow them to freely go around and explore his new place.
Laminated hardwood floors are ideal because they stain and scratch resistant
Fix Your Flooring
Most of the time, your pet spends their time on the floor. Choose a surface that is durable and easy to maintain. Concrete and tiles are usually the way to go while carpets are a no-no since they would be difficult to clean and are prone to stains. If you want a hardwood floor make sure it’s been pre-finished and laminated to keep your floor scratch and stain-resistant.
