Getting a new pet is a very exciting event that brings joy to both adults and children alike. When considering which kind of pet to get – dogs, cats, etc. – you have to take into consideration how big your current living space is. There’s a lot to think about, like how much care the animal needs, plus how much free time everyone in your pet-friendly apartment has to devote to the new pet. One of the biggest steps is checking with your apartment if pets are allowed in your space. Luckily at Prescott Square Apartments, we are a pet-friendly community. Here’s some pointers on how to prepare your pet-friendly apartment for your new furry friend.
Welcoming Your Pet into Your Pet-Friendly Apartment
Some pets require extra preparation before you bring them back home. However, even a pet that spends most of its time inside a tank, like a snake, needs certain items to thrive and be happy. The type of animal you pick as a pet will significantly determine just how much time and money you’ll need to take care of them. However, there are still a few key steps that can be applied to any critter moving into your pet-friendly apartment.
Pet-Proofing Your Pet-Friendly Apartment Space
Pets, even the ones inside tanks, are curious, adventurous, and graceful creatures. They can get inside and out of places you would never imagine. If your new pet is a cat or dog, the countertop is an area they will never stop trying to reach. Its recommended to remove anything edible from these counters and table and secure them in drawers and cupboards. You don’t want your pet knocking over your dinner all over the floor. Dogs, especially puppies, love to chew just about anything they can get their mouths on. Glasses, retainers, and remote controls are never safe if left out in the open. Make sure to keep these items somewhere safe.
Create A Space Inside Your Pet-Friendly Apartment For Your Pet
Animals can get just as stressed out as humans. Dogs are prone to both general and separation anxiety. You can help ease your new pet inside your home by creating a safe space where they can go to relax and get away from stress. For dogs, consider a crate to create the space of a den. Cats are notorious for being anti-social, so the back of a chair could be enough for them to escape. Consider decorating a separate room for your pets, or your balcony if you make it so your pet will stay there safely.
