You Just Moved and Your Dog Wants Out

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

You just moved and you notice that your dog is always trying to run out every time you open a door. He never did this before so why is he doing it now? The answer is simple. Your dog doesn’t understand the concept that you just moved and this is his home now. All he knows is that he’s in an unfamiliar place and needs to get back to the home that he knows.

Make sure that your pup’s new home is as familiar as possible by surrounding him with his favorite things that smell like his old home. You should also lead your dog around the new home and give him a chance to sniff everything so he can get acquainted with it.  If you do this, it will create a little sense of familiarity for him.

Finally, until you have a chance to walk him around the new home, it may be a good idea to limit your dogs access to all areas of the house until you are able to do so. You should also walk your pup around his new neighborhood to get him familiar to the sights and smells or the area. Before you know it, he will love his new home and neighborhood!
