Thanks everyone for the advice, and OMG that story had me rolling 😂
Thanks for the input everyone it's out first night tonight and I had met up with a buddy who has a black lab and they ran around in his field for hours so Dre is just passed out right now. Everything is going good so far

I've only moved with dogs three times.
The first time Tex and Echo went with me to the new house every time I had to measure windows, check on this or that, put curtains up, etc. I boarded them the day the movers came and got the stuff into the new house, then I picked them up and we went to the new house ... they acted like they had lived their all their lives.
The second time was two or three months before I moved from Maryland to Florida. My house in Prince Frederick sold faster than expected, so I brought my furniture down here to Ocala and put it in storage, then Yukon, Too, Niki and I moved into a friend's house in Northern Virginia. Beth had often visited me with her dogs and I'd taken care of some of them, so all the dogs knew each other. The Hooligans ran around her house, sniffing, checking out all the nooks and crannies, and since they knew the other dogs they just went outside and played.
The third, and last time I moved, was down here. I'd made arrangements to have my furniture picked up by the moving company and moved into our new house. Again, the Hooligans ran around the new digs, found all their old familiar furniture, and went outside to play.
IMHO moving seems to be more stressful on the owner than the dogs!!!

your mother, her home and her dog are not strangers to your dog.
does your dog have any problems when he's vivisting your mother?
if the answer is no i don't think you're going to have a problem.

that literally had me in tears from laughing so hard.
OP, really, as long as you're calm and chill with everything, your dog should adapt pretty easily. We've moved across states so many times, Shasta isn't even phased. I doubt Dax will be bothered by our move coming up next year.

|Bear L||When I moved, I boarded my dog with her trainer. That was probably more for me than her as she was still a puppy on steroids. She adapted easily. The only thing was she peed in the house the first day of her arrival when she was already potty trained. I think she didn't know she was "inside" her home as it was a new place to her and the old carpet was peed on a lot by the previous tenants' dogs. Since I was in the process of tearing out the carpet, I didn't bother to clean up too much but she never did it again once I showed her the backyard is the place to do those things.|

No good advice, but here is a story that I really like on the topic:

|llombardo||I just moved with 2 GSD's and they adapted very well. I would think they are fine if they are wherever their people are. My male has done so well that he's not even in a crate anymore|

It sounds like he is already somewhat familiar with your mom's house? Which is a good thing
I think you probably answered your own question, by getting him out and about as much as you can,
I have found the majority of gsd's are pretty darn adaptable ..
