Do you enjoy moving to new places? For some people, the thought of starting over somewhere new is enough to stress them out, while others may be excited. Either way, moving to a new house or new city always requires an adjustment period. You may need to change how you do certain things, go to new places, and make new friends. All of this can be stressful to some degree, and everyone handles it differently.

Now imagine being a dog, and being unable to understand why you're moving. Whether a dog comes from a shelter, from a different home, or needs to learn to live with another animal, they need an adjustment period and time to decompress. Not sure how to help your new dog decompress? That's why we're here!
