Settling dogs in new house

Recommended Posts

On average how long does it take for dogs to settle into new house?

In our last house the dogs were in a run within the garage. Now they are housed in the shed (it’s ventilated and will have a ring attached shortly). They have the same bed.

First night involved lots of whining and barking from one dog. The other seemed completely fine. Any ideas of how to deal with this? At present dogs are being rewarded for going into the shed on command and being fed in the shed. Shed has been left open for them all day to go in and out as they please. 

Going to have to introduce myself to the neighbours and apologise in advance I think.

Some dogs settle in an hour others weeks 😭

 

Are they barking in the middle of the night? 

You can buy anti bark collars that give off a scented spray when the dog barks.

 

Whatever it is, get it sorted quick as I imagine the neighbour already know who you are if they’re getting woken up all night 😭

Yeh one of them is just completely thrown. Think I will bring them into the garage for a week or so maybe help them adjust to new surroundings and gradually work them into the kennel. 

I have one of those anti bark collars from a few years ago. Still in the box. Heard horror stories about them exploding, or at least over heating and melting. Might be a short term solution though down the line.
