Embarking on a home search for a property that must be approved by furry, tail-wagging family members? Here are a few pet-friendly priorities to look for:
1. Does the home have a yard?
Just a little bit of a fenced-in grass can be your pup’s paradise. Be sure to check that the HOA allows you to put in a fence tall enough to keep your pooch in.
2. Proximity to play areas
Look for homes within walking distance to trails, open space and dog parks.
3. Your very own pack
Check out the neighbors’ properties for evidence of other dogs in the neighborhood, like dog toys in yards, dog doors and dog-related bumper stickers on cars.
4. Accommodating landlords
In some areas, finding condo communities that allow dogs can be challenging. The local animal shelter usually keeps lists of pet-friendly communities.
5. Storage for Fido
A designated space for keeping leashes, toys and other belongings is a blessing when it comes to keeping the rest of your home clean (or, cleaner).
Wall-to-wall white, plush carpet is not what you’re looking for. Neither are gorgeous softwoods just waiting to be scratched. Look for homes with resilient flooring that’s easily cleaned.
7. Doggie door
Dog doors offer your pooch (and you) a fabulous taste of freedom. Check whether a home has a convenient place to put one.
