Making Your Apartment Pet Friendly-bleep

UnCategorized For fellow animal lovers, our pets can be our best friends. To choose to live without Jake, your faithful golden retriever, or Jinxie, your cuddly Siamese kitty, would be to choose to live a life devoid of meaning. Indeed, many of us extend to our quadruped .panions the same courtesy, affection, and admiration traditionally offered to our biped family members. A case in point: true pet lovers mark not only the birthdays of their family members, but of their pets as well (that is, if they know the birthdates). Unfortunately, not all apartment landlords feel the same way about pets as we animal lovers do. Here are a few pointers to help make sure Fido and Fifi are apartment-friendly and get to stay where they belong: with their loving owners! The principal objection landlords pose to pets is primarily one of liability. Unruly animals, they say, will damage the property, pose a threat to public health, and/or bother other tenants. Such concerns are not unreasonable. Pet owners living in apartments should make a good faith effort to ensure that their pets do not scratch wood floors, "mark their territory" outside of the litter box, or howl at the moon while neighbors are sleeping. One increasingly popular option is the "pet friendly apartment." Built with the needs of pet owners in mind, these apartments boast a number of features and amenities designed to allay the tension between landlord and pet-owning tenant. Such facilities usually include a .munal pet playground, .plete with dog runs and exercise .plexes. The rooms themselves are typically larger than those found in standard apartments, providing pets ample space to move around. Cat-specific units include elevated windows, scratch-proof floors, and stain-resistant paint to minimize uniquely feline damage; those units designed with canines in mind usually feature a larger backyard, as dogs generally require more area for exercise and play. By paying a modest fee for these pet-friendly services, pets and owners alike retain the dual pleasure of having the .fort of a facility designed specifically for animals as well as the .panionship inherent in a .munity of animals and animal-lovers. Consider that some pets are better to own than others when it .es to apartment living. For instance, fish are easy to care for, and they normally don’t require a pet deposit. Amphibians such as lizards are the same. And while landlords are a bit more reluctant to accept birds than they would be fish, more will approve of them (since they stay in cages) than approve of dogs. Regardless of apartment choice, animal training is suggested for all pets. A well-behaved animal is least likely to create a disturbance and draw the ire of neighbors (in fact, a well-behaved animal can actually serve as a point of pride for the neighborhood). Dogs especially are encouraged to receive training; a dog that is destructive when left to his own devices while his owner tends to other matters is unwel.e in any apartment, pet-friendly facilities included.
