Moving With Dogs

So, you're planning a move with your pet. How exciting!

Meet my Pal 'SUNNY'.  He's a Charcoal Labrador Retriever (black with a dilute gene), and a total goofball! 

With his help, and the help of his two predecessors, Arthur and Otis, I am grateful to have gained insight that helps my "pet parent" clients best  accommodate a furry family member during a move. Read on for more info, or if you would prefer to have a chat about the specifics of your move like:

"Where is the best dog park in Durham?", "How will you stage my home if I have a pet that sheds?",  What will I do with my pet during showings, if I can't be home" ? 

These are all questions that have straight forward answers and I am happy to share them with you on a call if you still need answers after reading this page. Click the link to book a call on my calendar

Will it be easy for you to pick up/ have delivery with ease?

I have never met a dog that didn't rush to the door in anticipation of a walk, sniff or play!

Being outside is essential for your pet's mental wellbeing, so when looking for a new abode consider where they will walk? Is it safe for them to run? Tolerated where they will pee and poop? And, Will have access to any dog friends? Walkies. Dogs love adventure. Off leash areas, dog friendly destinations, dog friendly trails, off leash parks,
