I used to lurk alll the time, but life got busy! Hoping some of the old experts can help me out!
My boy, Yuki (husky/white shepherd) is 11. He has slowed down greatly over the past 2-3 years. He still loves walks and goes to a fantastic day care 1x a week. Most of the time, he is content to lay on the porch or the couch.
We will be moving in about a month. He has moved before with us (2x), but it has been 6 years. He was unhappy about it. Lots of pacing, panting and just not settling. I am just worried about how much stress this will put on him. We boarded him for a week this summer and it took him a long time to recover. What can I do to make this easy for him?
I plan to-have him go to daycare the day of the move, walk the property with him so he can get a feel for it, he will have a large fenced in area to patrol, put his bed in a place that is clearly for him. All our furniture is coming with us, the whole family will be around to pay attention to him (the whole family includes 3 kids (7, 5, 15 months) so things get pretty crazy).
Ugh! Out of the whole move, this is stressing me out the most. He just got over being sick and I think seeing how down he got really has me worried.
