Q: My mini long-hair Dachshund and I will be relocating from a 3-bedroom home to an apartment complex. Do you have any tips on making this move more comfortable for her? She is not the most social girl! Thanks...
A: You shouldn’t have a problem. For tentative dogs who may be cautious about change, introduce her slowly by keeping her in one room, a room that you’re in often and has plenty moved in with your scent. Try to maintain her old schedule the best you can, and find ways to have fun between unpacking boxes by brief play sessions. Of course, unpack your dog’s toys first!
