Adding a pet to your life can add so much joy. But if you are thinking of adding a dog to your Cedar City Apartment, there are a few things you will need to first consider. Dogs and apartments don’t always go well together. Dogs love and need lots of room to run around and exercise, and apartment living doesn’t always allow for that.
Follow these following tips to help make sure that your dog is happy in an apartment living situation.
First things first, you need to find out if your apartment complex allows dogs. Many Cedar City Apartments do allow them, but there are stipulations. Only some breeds and sizes are allowed to help keep the apartments clean and out of respect for other residents.
When you live in an apartment complex, you are in tight quarters with many other residents. Depending on where your apartment is located, you may share all of your walls- on either side and the floor and ceiling- with other residents. You need to keep this in mind when choosing a dog for your apartment. Choose a breed that is easy to train, and will obey your commands.
Having a dog in an apartment is big time commitment. They need time each day to exercise and go to the bathroom. You need to be mindful of this, and be willing to take them outside multiple times each day, even when the weather isn’t ideal.
Optimize the space in your apartment to allow your dog the most amount of space to run around and play.
Along with keeping your dog happy, you also need to consider and respect the people living around you. Do not get a dog that will bark loudly or disturb your neighbors. You don’t want to ruin your relationship with them or with management.
