Whether you just got a new job out-of-state or have a vacation home where your family likes to spend weekends, living in two different states has its benefits and drawbacks. When you strategize accordingly, it can boost your quality of life significantly, but it can also add stress if you don’t keep things organized.

 

As a pet owner, you understand that there are plenty of responsibilities to consider when you live in one home. Responsibilities can become more challenging when living in multiple states. Below, Sandov’s English Bulldog shows you how to organize your life to be a great pet owner no matter where you are!

 

Invest in the Goods

 

The first step is to ensure you have everything your pet needs in both homes. If you have a dog, you’ll need top-quality food, water and food bowls, treats, and toys. You also want to keep basic grooming supplies, a stain remover, and other cleaning supplies on hand. Make sure your cat has a litter box, food, and toys to keep them busy during the day.

 

Here are a few other items to consider:

 

  • A comfortable and supportive pet bed
  • A crate or kennel
  • A harness
  • Flea and tick prevention
  • A microchip and identification tag
  • Pet first-aid kit

 

Paying for subpar pet gear and supplies can be frustrating. The worst part is that you often don’t know that something is low-quality or won’t work until you’ve already bought it. Use expert websites that offer comprehensive client reviews on every product you purchase. Some sites even provide veterinarian reviews, so you will know you’re making a worthwhile investment.

 

Be Your Pet’s Rock

 

If you’re splitting your time between two states, chances are you spend quite a bit of time on the road. This can make it difficult to keep a consistent routine with your pet, but you must try to anyway!

 

Pets thrive on routine, and your dog or cat should be playing, partying, and eating at the same times each day. Also, try not to spend too much time out of the home; remember the importance of maintaining that special bond you have with your four-legged companion.

 

Go With the Cheaper State

 

If you’re like most people, you’re always open to saving money. Fortunately, there are strategies to help you save when you live in two different states. For instance, if you live in California and Utah, register your vehicles and obtain auto insurance in the state with the cheapest options. In many cases, but can apply the strategy for health and pet insurance too.

 

Save in Other Ways

 

There are many other ways to save money while maintaining your quality of life. For instance, you could cancel your cable subscription and start streaming your TV shows and movies. You can subscribe to circle streaming services and still pay less monthly than you would for a comprehensive cable package. Plus, you can watch your content from wherever you are from a TV, tablet, computer, or smartphone.

 

Learn About Common Costs

 

Lastly, take time to research the standard costs of living in the cities you live in so you can tailor your budget to serve your family well. For example:

 

  • The average home repair service in Riverside, CA is $585.
  • The average 5 x 5 storage unit in San Antonio Texas is $55.32. You can check online resources for these types of storage spaces.
  • You can board your dog for an average of $40 per night in Salt Lake City, UT.
  • Residents in Miami, FL spend an average of $13 per meal when dining out.
  • The average auto insurance policy in New York, NY costs $286 a month.

 

Conclusion

 

Being a great pet owner can be challenging when living in multiple homes, but you can structure your life for your pet to thrive. And it’s easier than you might think! Remember to invest in quality products, read veterinarian reviews, and give your pet a steady routine. Find ways to save money on living costs, and you’ll be on the right track!
