    You have a place all ready for them at the new house. You put them into properly ventilated boxes and you put them into the car and drive them over.

    Put some fresh cool water, some of their regular feed and a few treats into their new housing.

    I wouldn't let them out for several days until they are well settled.

    I use airline dog kennels to transport. But anything sturdy with good ventilation and no dangerous edges will work.

    You'll be surprised at how well they take moving.
