How To Find Pet-Friendly Apartments in Brownsburg

If you have a dog or cat or are thinking about getting one in the near future, you’ll want to rent a pet-friendly apartment in Brownsburg.  However, “pet-friendly” can actually be unclear. Unfortunately, “pet-friendly” doesn’t share the same meaning from property to property. Some pet-friendly apartments may actually give you the option to own a a pet, but place restrictions on breed or size. While other Brownsburg apartment communities may even have accommodations for your pet like designated areas for your dog to play or free waste disposal bags.

With so many differences in pet-friendly apartments in Brownsburg, how do you discover one that fits you and your pet?

Start By Reading Over The Property’s Pet Policy

A community is only as welcoming to dogs and cats as the apartment community’s pet policy. The pet policy details the guidelines you must follow concerning pet ownership. Some pet policies give great flexibility and permit you to keep any pet. Some place restrictions on different types of dog breeds. Others may place limits on how many pets you’re allowed, as well as how much they weigh. And then some policies prohibit dogs entirely and only let you have housebound cats or small caged animals.

Very few apartments have restrictions on the types of cat breeds allowed. A pet policy that limits how many pets are allowed in one household is usually more common. There also may be extra fees associated with your pets, like higher rent or cleaning costs when you and your pet move out, or a non-returnable pet deposit you have to pay when you move in.

An elaborate pet policy doesn’t mean that the community isn’t “pet-friendly”—provided you fit within the guidelines. But if you own an animal like a Great Dane or an American Staffordshire Terrier, or are fostering a whole lot of tiny kittens, you should review the policy before you fall in love with a particular community.

Inspect The Pet Amenities On Your Tour

Just like you would inspect the pool on your tour, make sure to check out the pet amenities. Designated areas for your dog to play give your doggie the chance to run off some steam and make some new puppy buddies. Stations with disposal bags, trash cans, and water bowls keep the community clean. Some apartments even set up organized pet playdates or grooming discounts for their four-legged residents!

Even though these accommodations for pets seem wonderful on paper, the actual measure of their friendliness to pets is just how well they’re kept up. If the area for dogs to play is covered with weeds and brambles, then it’s more or less useless. Properties that welcome pets make certain that waste bags are always available and that the cans are emptied regularly. Basically, when you arrange your in-person tour in Brownsburg, be sure to note whether the amenities for pets are maintained as well as the amenities for humans.

Take A Look At Multiple Reviews To Discover Pet-Friendly Intangibles

If you are unsure whether a property is friendly to pets or not, be sure to check out reviews on the Brownsburg apartment. Many apartment dwellers consider their pets as an important part of their family and have no problem sharing their personal experiences of living in a particular community. You might find out that the maintenance staff brings treats to give out when making a service call to your apartment. Or that the complex’s office organizes a pet adoption event with the humane society. You most likely can chalk those up in the pet-friendly category.

These reviews will also be able to tell you of the landlords that won’t return deposits when you move out due to pet cleaning, or the ones who charge an inordinate amount of monthly rent for dogs and cats. Just don’t let a single negative review change your mind, but if you see a trend of angry dog and cat owners, then you might consider looking at another complex.
