Renting with your pup

A no-pets-allowed policy is unacceptable to you since your pet is a member of your family; hence, you will not be moving in. If you are searching for a rental, it may be difficult to find a place that will also accept your pet, but if you know what to look for, you may discover some good possibilities out there. When you finally do locate the perfect location, behave responsibly by treating your rental property in the same manner as you would if it were your own home.

Inform the owner

Before you submit an application to rent an apartment, house, or condo, you should first give the landlord or property manager a call and have a conversation with them. In spite of the fact that the listing states that dogs are not permitted, there are sometimes exceptions that you may research. For illustration, if your pet is a service animal, you may be able to get your vet to attest to the fact that the animal is essential by signing a paper on your behalf.

This might be the situation if you suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or if you are blind. It is illegal for property owners or managers to treat you differently due to a medical condition; thus, you should not allow yourself to get disheartened before giving someone a call and having a conversation with them.

There's also the possibility that you were provided with incorrect information. It's possible that someone informed you that dogs are not permitted on the property, but the owner really does accept them. It's possible that the owner permits cats but not dogs or that they do, but not the other way around. In any event, calling is something that will never harm, and doing so before anything else might save you both time and frustration in the long run.
