I’ve lived in several apartments with my Lab mix Ace and two cats. Believe me, I understand how challenging it can be to find an apartment that welcomes your pets!
I’ve put together a list of tips and expectations for apartment searching if you have a dog.
Apartment hunting tips for dog owners
1. For future dog owners …
If you don’t have a dog yet but you’re planning on getting one, it’s a lot easier to find a dog friendly apartment first and then choose a dog that fits the criteria second (such as a dog who’s under the weight limit).
If you already have a dog, it’s a little more challenging, especially if you have a large dog, multiple dogs or a breed that is unfortunately banned from many rentals.
