10 Dogs to Get You Through Moving Day

Our furry friends may not have opposable thumbs to help us lift moving boxes, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t understand the struggles of moving! These 10 dogs will help you feel better about your moving woes – and make your moving successes that much better.

When you wake up motivated and ready to do work…

Moving little by little in the weeks before your move will really pay off! Just ask this dog.

When you pack a box like a Tetris pro

Pro tip: Use pots, pans, plastic bins, and any other item that can double as a box to be more space-efficient.

When you drop the “fragile” box

With enough extra padding, there’s no need to fret! And if you want to cut costs, use spare linens and clothing to protect all your breakables.

When your moving truck driver is hours late

Thoroughly read a moving company’s online reviews before booking to help avoid moving day fiascos!

When you’re working so hard lifting boxes that you forget to eat

Measure before you move, friends.

When you can’t remember which box has your clothes

Aw! These pups are really too cute! Not sure how actually having a dog around on moving day is actually going to help you distress though. Any real pet owner knows that it'll be better to have them out of the way while you've got a container coming up to your house to wheel all your storage boxes off to the new house!

Thank you for this. It really boosted my mood for the upcoming house moving. It's fun to see how dogs don't even care - they're always happy wherever they go.
