Home Buying for Pet Owners

Searching for a home is one of the most stressful times in anyone’s life. The last thing that might be on your mind while house-hunting is how the home will accommodate your pooch’s lifestyle, but it’s imperative to remember! Scoop Soldiers wants the best for you and your furry best friend, so be sure to consider the following tips when looking for your next place to live!

  1. Check out the rules

First things first, does your new lease, home, or complex even allow pets? Also, is there a weight or breed restriction? This should be one of the first questions you ask, since signing that contract subjects you to pet fees if you get caught housing an animal.

  1. Look for spaces to play

Make sure that your new home has either a nice yard (fencing is a plus), or a park in close proximity that you can utilize. Not only is a yard for bathroom purposes, pups need to play! It’s an inherent necessity, and factoring this into your home purchase will definitely help your pup (and you) stay a lot healthier and happier.

  1. How does your pet deal with stairs?

Stairs might be easy for you, but be sure to consider the age of your dog and his/her willingness to venture up and down those steps. Living on the third floor with an old dog with a hip issue might not be the smartest move when looking into a new place.

  1. Neighborhood friendliness

When you visit the property, seek out the vibes you get from neighbors. Are there any dogs around? If there are, are the dogs (and owners) friendly to you? You should feel welcome in your new environment, and so should your pup!

Your dog is part of the fam and should be considered in the decision-making process when buying a home. Dogs will love whatever place you choose, but keeping their needs in mind throughout the home buying process will make them so much happier!
