3 Tips for Pet-Friendly Rentals

Simple tips for pet lovers!

When owning a unit that is pet-friendly, it can be difficult to keep track of the actions of tenants and their animals. Although at times it may seem as if pets are not a necessity, that varies from person to person.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are various reasons as to how owning a pet can be beneficial.

There are always pros and cons to allowing pets to live on your investment property. But there are tips and tricks to make the process easier.

Here are a few ways that can help pet-friendly rentals have positive relationships with their tenants and their furry friends.

Follow these tips!

1. Select the right flooring

Choose appropriate flooring for pet-friendly rentals.

Pets are bound to have accidents, spill their water bowl, and even bring dirt inside. If you plan on making your rental pet-friendly, it’s important to choose a flooring that will be fitting.

2. Provide plenty of open space

Provide enough area for owners and pets to explore.

It is important for animals to go outside and have enough room to play. Ensuring there is enough grass or artificial turf will not only help pets have area to roam but also make your rental more appealing!


3. Install dog waste stations

Keep the area clean by providing a dog waste station.

Installing a dog waste station with disposable plastic bags can be a reminder for pet owners to pick up after their pets. This will encourage pet owners to do the right thing, and it will help to keep the area free of waste.

It isn’t always easy having tenants that are both humans and animals but following these tips can help make your life a bit easier. To learn more about providing a pet-friendly property, see Pet Interviews are a Must.
