5 Features to Seek Out In Pet-Friendly Apartments

If you’ve got a pet, you need to be sure to look for the right kinds of pet-friendly apartments.

If you’re currently in the process of seeking out a new apartment, you probably have a list of needs. Perhaps you desire a guest bathroom or prefer tile flooring in the kitchen. You might even prefer a first-floor apartment due to its proximity to the ground, or you prefer an upstairs apartment to avoid the pitter-patter of your neighbors above your head. However, if you’ve got a pet, you need to be sure to look for the right kinds of pet-friendly apartments. Here are some apartment features to look out for as you search for a new home for you and your furry friend.


Even if your pet is house-trained and does not shed, a dog will occasionally track mud back into the house, and a cat can kick litter out of its litter box. Cats will even swipe at things off of flat surfaces, while dogs carry mouthfuls of food around and drool on their toys – which inevitably ends up on the floor. This is why it’s crucial to consider what type of flooring you want in your pet-friendly apartments. Some of the best examples of flooring to look for would be hardwood, tile, and linoleum – as these are easier to clean and maintain. Hardwood does show pet fur, so it will need to be swept on occasion.

Space for Activities

If you own a pet, you know how much they love to dart around randomly. Both dogs and cats love to do this, sometimes even late and night. A smaller apartment won’t accommodate this very adequately. Be sure when you’re looking for a pet-friendly apartment that there is enough space for some activities, particularly for when you aren’t home to take your dog outside for a walk.

Pet-Friendly Neighbors and Landlords

This is probably the most obvious, but one of the most important aspects when seeking out pet-friendly apartments. It’s important that you’re open about your pets before you move in and while you’re living in your new apartment. Make sure your landlord is okay with pets living on the premises. There might be some rules regarding how many pets you’re allowed to have. Again, be sure to double-check with your landlord before moving in. Luckily, Prescott Square Apartments is a pet-friendly apartment community, so feel free to check out our apartments with your four-legged friends in the future.
