How to Keep Pets and Kids Occupied On Moving Day

Approximately 12 percent of U.S. residents moved in 2012 according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, and many of those moving include families with children or pets. Moving day can be a difficult time for both kids and animals, so keeping them happy and distracted can go a long way toward ensuring the moving day experience is calm and peaceful.

One of the simplest ways to keep pets and kids distracted, or at least out of the way, is to arrange for them to visit friends or relatives or, in the case of pets, have them boarded for the day. Those options aren't always available though, fortunately, there are a few simple but effective ways to keep moving day a productive, positive and uneventful experience.

Moving to a new location can bring feelings of excitement and nervousness, and it’s not uncommon for stress and emotions to rise to the surface in kids and pets – and even in adults. With just a little planning and preparation, moving day can end up being a positive, stress-free event for everyone involved.
