Some of us find ourselves in a situation where when have to move into a smaller space, like an apartment in the city, because of a number of reasons. This might sound exciting, but what if you have a pet Pit Bull? Moving can also be stressful for your pets since they have to get used to their new home, which might be smaller than what they’re used to.
Here are a few tips on making moving a bit easier for your dog.
Talk to the Landlord or Lady
First, you need to make sure that the space you’re planning to rent actually lets you keep pets. Some apartments do, but others are very strict about the kinds of dogs allowed to stay. Some apartment owners won’t allow pit bull because of their size, so make sure you talk to the owners first about your dog before setting a date to move in.
Choose the Right Rental
Your new home should offer the same comforts as your old one. Some city apartments have yards where the tenants can let their dog roam around and play. These are also dog parks in most towns and city where you can take your dog for a day out. The vet or an animal hospital should also be accessible and the neighborhood should be nice enough were you can take your dog out for a walk.
Meet the other tenants and dogs that also live in the same apartment. Socializing is important, especially since your dog is in a new environment so talk to your neighbors and let your dog meet other dogs.
