Try to make everything as normal as possible in the days leading to your move, feeding and playing with your dog as usual. Try to keep the scheduleuninterrupted despite all of the arrangements you’re making for the move itself.
If your dog is known to be especially prone to nervousness and anxiety, you may want to ask a friend to care for your dog during the time surrounding
your move. This may help reduce the chances of it getting upset, running away or hiding in one of the moving boxes. This could also help cut down on
the stress for your dog.
Many states require a Health Certificate. For more information, check with your veterinarian or the State Regulatory Agency located in your new state.
Before the Move

When their daily schedule is disrupted,dogs can become nervous and may behave strangely. A new environment can also be a major source of anxiety for a dog, and it may take some time before your do gets readjusted.
