~ Pets feel safe with their owner. Keep him close. Do not place him far away from the bedroom.
~ Teach him early on to respond to verbal commands.
~ Make sure that the new bed is exactly the same as the one before, i.e., if it was a pillow bed, buy a pillow bed again. If it was a heated bed, buy the same thing. Bring on a sense of familiarity.
~ Place the bed in the same location.
~ Sprinkle the bed and the surroundings with the scents familiar to your pet.
~ Again, command him, praise him, and lead him to his own bed.
~ Reward him with treats and praises.
~ Place his toys in and around the bed.
~Let him know that the new bed is as good as the old one, and that is where he has to sleep. It'll take time, but he'll get used to it in a few days.
