Home renovations can be extremely stressful. Most of the time we think of the additional stress on ourselves and our families, but we can’t forget about our pets! At Prince & Sons, we’re total animal lovers and so we thought it would be a good idea to outline some of the steps you can take to care for your furry friends during a home renovation.
While it’s always a good idea to spend time outdoors with your pet, during a home renovation it can be even more beneficial. Try to take your pet outdoors more than usual which could include longer walks, visits to local dog parks and other outdoor activities that your furry friend will enjoy.
If you’re investing in a large scale home renovation your construction crew will be around for quite some time. Don’t shy away from introducing your pet to the contractors who will be spending time in your home. This can help to ease some of the stress and anxiety that your pet may be experiencing.
While you may not like crating your pet, during a construction project it may be necessary. Placing the crate away from loud noises can help to keep your pet more at ease during a construction project.
If you’re not able to be home as much as you’d like during the renovation it may be a good idea to hire a pet sitter who can come in and check on your pet from time to time. This can help your pet to stay engaged and energized during this potentially stressful time.
Another way to keep your pet’s mind off of the construction project is to occasionally introduce new toys and treats. This will help distract your pet so that they won’t be stressed out by all the construction that’s happening around them.
