MOVING YOUR DOG: TIPS TO EASE YOUR FEARS

Lucca Swivel Vegan Chair


Moving to a new home can be a big change, and no one notices that more than your dog. Dogs can be so sensitive to new routines and environments, so it’s understandable that a new house could make them a little nervous. If you are a pet parent who is worried about how your pup will settle into a new environment, you’re probably looking for ways to ease the transition. Here are some words of encouragement and advice for you and your dog.

Adjustment May Take Some Time

As you move into a new home, you may notice some unusual behavior from your dog at first. Your pup may pace around, whine, or have a hard time settling down and resting, but don’t be alarmed. So many pups get overwhelmed with the “wow” of their new digs. With all of the new smells, new sounds, and new neighborhood cats to keep track of, it’s normal for them to act a little off during their first days in the new place. If, however, your dog’s behavior continues or escalates into destroying items around the house, it may be time to check in with a trainer or figure out some new tricks to help calm your pup down.  

Keeping Your Dog Safe Is Important

Moving into a new place can be an exciting adventure, and you wouldn’t want any mishaps to take away from that. If your dog is a bit nervous in the new home, he may be more likely to run away and get lost, but you can take steps to prevent this. Keep your dog on a leash whenever you venture outside together, no matter how well trained your pup may be. All it takes is one stray squirrel or loud noise to spook him into making a run for it. For even more security, think about adding a fence to your backyard so your dog can enjoy time outside off leash. It costs an average of $1,476 to $3,397 to install or build a fence in Miami, and the peace of mind is well worth the investment.

Find New Ways to Calm Your Dog

With a new neighborhood comes new sights and sounds, and dogs can be especially sensitive to noises. Some dogs may react to new neighbors dropping by or strangers being in your home if you are working with movers or contractors. Know your dog’s limits and put him in a closed-off room if needed during these stressful times. It may also be a good idea to play some music or background noise to help your dog feel safe. Wondering what to play? Some studies suggest that the key to getting your dog to relax may be a little reggae or soft rock.

Preparing for a move with your pup doesn’t have to be a burden for you or your dog. Your dog looks to you for protection and guidance, but it’s easier than you think to ease your dog into a new home. With a little patience and a few adjustments, you can help your dog feel safe and secure, and save yourself some stress in the process.

Nursery Interior Design

Deborah DiMare

There are so many milestones and moments in ones life. When I look back on what I would consider to be my happiest moments, one of them was the first day I spent with my newborn twins in their nursery.

I always recall my mom telling my sister and I that one of her happiest memories also took place in our nursery. She loved the nighttime feedings. Although she and my dad lived in a tiny apartment in the Bronx at that time, she felt that at those moments, she and her baby were the only two people in the world. The quiet, the stillness and coziness were beautiful to her.

The Holidays are a time made for sharing with your family and loved ones. Except those who will rent a villa on exotic Thai island and spend holidays in warm climate, surrounded with white sandy beaches and turquoise sea. Being able to have your whole family gathered around a table is a great feeling but lets face it, when you have young ones it’s not that easy. They usually can’t stay still for too long.

Below I am going to show you a step by step tutorial on how to create an interesting table setting for your kids that it’s not only inexpensive but will guarantee your kid will stay entertained and in their sit!

Sensory-Inspired Holiday Design Ideas…What Makes a House a Home?

Deborah DiMare

I’ve been designing interior spaces for many years. However, I still love the feeling of excitement upon entering a new home, especially during the holiday season! The colors, textures, sounds and scents immediately tell me a story about its owners. Is it about a lively, busy family and their children, a Zen-like retreat, a romantic getaway? Or all of the above?

So how do you create your own story for the holidays? Just as we can transform the  way we feel by wearing different clothes, our homes also have the ability to wear “different hats.” Address the following in each detail that you create:

The Senses – Consider color, texture and scent, It should not only look pretty, but it must excite the senses! Give off that holiday vibe. 

Culture – America is a melting pot, we are a mix of various cultures. Bring a bit of your culture and travels into the holiday decor.

Nature – We are surrounded by beautiful greenery and nature anywhere we live. Bringing the elements of the nature surrounding you and sun into your space sets it apart from your pied-à-terre in Paris.

Tell a Story – If you can look at your decorative touches when done and “see” your story, you’ve earned an A+.

For example: You just returned from Morocco with a colorful silk scarf. Drape it over your entry piece console and top it with a clear vase filled with palm fronds and sand for a unique, lovely entry details to your home. There’s a story!

Fill your great grandmother’s glass bowl with some tree ornaments, pine cones or pine tree branches. Guests can admire the color and scent, and be intrigued to hear the story of your great grandmother!

It’s fun, use your imagination to create conversation pieces and a warm happy home…

Happy Holidays, everyone!
