Once you get to Phoenix, you’ll find plenty of places you can take your dog. Try Uncle Bear’s Brewhouse Grill,where you can hang out on the patio with your pup, or Sprinkles Cupcakes, where you can get a treat for your dog and enjoy one yourself. If you’d rather spend the day getting in a workout, take your pet to South Mountain Park, where you can hike the trails and enjoy the fantastic views, or the Farm at South Mountain,a haven for foodies.


Moving day doesn’t have to be a stressful event; with the right plan and a little preparation, you, your family, and your dog can make a smooth transition to the new home. Remember to show your pet a little extra attention during this time to help him stay calm.
