Look for these features when searching for a dog-friendly apartment community.

When you are looking for an apartment that will be a good fit for you and your dog, you want to ensure your new community will have the amenities you need. A dog-friendly apartment isn’t just one that allows dogs, but one that has features such as plenty of space and nearby walking areas for you to make sure your dog lives a comfortable, happy life. If you are eager to find a dog-friendly apartment community, Beechtree Apartments has several appealing features that will make life sweet for you and your furry friend. 

Dogs Are Actually Allowed 

The most important thing to guarantee before signing a new lease is to make sure dogs are allowed. Most apartment communities will note whether pets are allowed on their website or application. If you aren’t sure, or you aren’t sure whether your breed is permitted, you can message or call the community directly to speak with someone. You will also likely pay a pet deposit and/or monthly pet rent, so be aware of those costs too. 

Plenty of Space 

Whether big or small, every dog should have plenty of space. They need space to wander, explore, and have their “zoomies” to burn off some extra energy. A studio or one-bedroom apartment may not be enough for your dog, especially if you know they are a high-energy breed. 

Consider whether your dog-friendly apartment community has outdoor space for your dog. At Beechtree Apartments, our dog park is designed for fun and socialization among community pets. This way, you have a nearby site to take your dog when moving around inside your apartment isn’t enough for them. 

Easy Access to the Outdoors

If you are looking at apartments with your dog, an apartment with dedicated outdoor space is ideal. If you can’t find that, any apartment with easy outdoor access will be the next best thing. 

If you don’t want to take a long elevator ride to get your dog outside for bathroom or exercise breaks, look for apartments on the lower floors. If you have an older dog who likes to sit out in the fresh air, consider an apartment with a balcony or patio so they can enjoy the sunshine without you having to take them out through the building’s entrance. 

Friendly Neighbors 

Life with a dog can become more complicated when neighbors are easily bothered by your dog’s presence. While you can’t always predict whether your neighbors will be amenable to dogs, you can get a good sense of whether your new home is in a dog-friendly apartment community by looking for other dog owners. If you notice many dog owners walking their pets, you can bet that most people are used to living with or near dogs. At Beechtree Apartments, our dog-friendly neighborhood and amenities make life welcoming for all.

A Stimulating Environment 

Dogs love having visual stimulation. Your dog may grow restless and disruptive if you live in an apartment with small or few windows. At Beechtree Apartments, every apartment home has plenty of windows with attractive views. Your dog can look out the windows or spend time on your private balcony to enjoy the stimulation they crave. However, be mindful if your dog starts barking whenever they see people or other dogs, and consider which views will be best for them.
