Gone are the days when people struggled to find a place to rent that allowed them to have pets. Nowadays, more landlords recognize that pets are an essential part of the family and that making room for them makes sense. In fact, some rental properties not only allow people to have pets, but they also offer amenities that make their lives just a little better.
Anderson Communities want our residents and their pets to be happy in their home, so all our rental properties welcome pets. If you’re looking for a pet-friendly place to rent, here are some of the amenities we recommend you seek out.
Dog Parks are Key!
Some dogs struggle when their people leave them home alone for the day. One of the ways you can help your dog feel calmer and happier is to give them enough exercise and mental stimulation. A tired dog is more likely to be a well-behaved dog.
Dog parks are a great way to give your pups the workout they need. These spaces for dogs to play provide them with the room to run around, the opportunity to socialize with other dogs, and a satisfying number of things to sniff.
Having a dog park nearby is a great way to enrich your pup’s life. If it’s close enough, you can take them out for a quick run before you go to work. Getting an early dose of exercise sets them up to have a calmer, happier day while you’re gone.
Sometimes the simple solutions make a big difference. The flooring in your home can make it easier to clean up after your pet or make it a constant struggle.
Standard rental property carpet isn’t usually a great choice for pet homes. It tends to be prone to staining and snagging, and getting every bit of fur off of it is frustrating.
But a hard surface, such as laminate, tile, or vinyl flooring, is a breeze to wipe clean. Pet hair is much easier to sweep or vacuum up from a hard floor. Details like this create an environment that makes it easier to enjoy your pet without extra work and worry.
Outdoor Activities For The Whole Family – Including Your Pets!
Dogs are pack animals, and spending time playing with their family is an immense joy to them. Simply going outdoors for a family walk or an active game of fetch will bring them an adorable amount of delight. A fenced yard is one great way to do that, but there are other ways to do so.
Having green, welcoming parks to play in and paths to walk nearby can help you develop habits as a family that will benefit everyone, not just your pets. Spending time together outdoors is a great way to reduce stress and escape your screens. Finding a home with easy access to outdoor spaces will make it easier for you to take advantage of sunny days and balmy afternoons.
