Now more than ever, potential residents are looking for pet-friendly apartments. In fact, there are more than 100 million dog and cat owners in the United States, and bringing their beloved pets to a new apartment is a must-have for almost every pet parent. As a result, pet-friendliness is one of the most desirable traits a community can have. We’ll take a look at the pet amenities modern apartments are providing to really stand out from the crowd.
Pet Walking and Sitting Services
These services are incredibly important for busy fur-parents who want to make sure their cat or pup is taken care of during the day and is getting proper exercise. It is recommended that a dog is walked twice a day for at least 15 minutes, but many schedules just can’t mesh with their pup’s needs. A pet walking service keeps everyone happy and healthy.
Sitting services come in handy with pets that have separation anxiety. If you know you’re going to have a long day at the office and want someone to spend some time with your fur-baby, the service provides a trusted party. If you want to go on vacation, or if you have a business trip that you need to attend, sitters can stop in daily to make sure your pets have the food, exercise, and love they require.
When your furry friend needs a bit of grooming to trim back those nails or hair, why shouldn’t they also be spoiled and pampered? A pet spa provides therapeutic baths, massages, and warm towel wraps that are meant to relax, lower anxiety, and strengthen the health of your pampered pup or comfy cat.
Pet Parks and Dog Runs
There is nothing more important for your pet’s health than getting outdoors, exploring, and socializing with other animals. An upscale apartment community should provide a clean, comfortable, expansive pet park for you and your furry friends. Pet parks are also a great place to meet other pet lovers at your apartment. If there isn’t much outdoor space or the weather is bad, an indoor dog run can be a great amenity for a pup to get exercise, have fun, and burn off energy.
