I am about to do the same thing on a temporary basis while my home is being built after selling my current home. Put the back of your piano to an outside wall and farthest away from your neighboring wall. This should help with the noise. I have 2 dogs to move with me including a 5 mth old new puppy. Working now on crate training her (I don't move for another week.) Check out http://www.victoriastilwell.com for some great dog training tips on training your dog.
