I’m a dog person. This is not to say I am not fond of cats—actually, I love them dearly—but my two rescue pups are my heart.
Why does this matter? If you’re looking for a home to share with the only roommate who will absolutely never steal your beer (no opposable thumbs), rest assured that you and I speak the same language. Here are just a few things I tend to notice or look for when helping my dog-parent clients:
- Fenced backyard or potential for one
- A door that directly leads into said backyard
- Proximity to dog parks
- Proximity to pet stores
- Flooring & stairs
- Where will the dog dishes go?
- Where will the dog leashes, bags and towels go?
