Bring Your Furry Friends!
Did you know over 66% of American households include pets? That’s a lot of cats, dogs and other animal friends!
If you’re working, studying or staying away from home and want to travel with your pet, we can help.
Executive Corporate Housing has a selection of pet friendly housing across the country. Those properties include apartments, penthouses, family homes, estate homes, town homes and every type of property you can imagine.
With thousands of properties across the country, in cities and outside, if you’re traveling with your pet, you’re in good hands!
Pet friendly landlords
If you’re a landlord and offer apartment rentals anywhere in the country, excluding pets can mean you miss out on a significant portion of the market. Many of our regular corporate apartment clients seek pet friendly housing for their staff.
With so many Americans owning and treating pets as family, it makes sense to accept all the family.
Especially when we here at Executive Corporate Housing do everything we can to ensure there’s no downside to accepting pets!
Typically, pet friendly housing reduces the amount of time a property stays empty, widens the potential rental base and can offer higher rents.
Most expenses are covered in the pet rent and extra deposit required for pets, so there really is very little risk!
Pet friendly renters
We appreciate that working or studying away, even for a short time, without your pet can be tough. That’s why we search high and low for accessible, pet friendly housing across the nation.
Pet friendly housing with accessible properties, amenities that include a dog park or exercise area or close proximity to one. Even many of our Downtown developments accept pets!
Dog breed restrictions for pet friendly housing
The banning of certain breeds from rented housing may seem unfair but it’s the only system we have to maintain standards.
We appreciate it’s the individual dog, and their owner, that are the problem and not the breed. Yet we also appreciate that it is usually certain breeds that cause the most damage.
They are also dog breeds that have the most trouble with moving house and are least comfortable within an apartment setting.
Typical breeds that not allowed in rented housing often include:
- Pit bulls (inc. American Pit Bull Terrier)
- American Staffordshire Terrier
- Staffordshire Terrie
- American Bulldog
- German Shepherds
- Doberman Pinschers
- Mastiff Breed
- Alaskan Malamutes
- Cane Corso
- Chow Chow
- Any Wolf Hybrid
- Great Danes
Now you can quickly see that many of the breeds above are not dangerous dogs. In fact, they are predominantly very friendly, loyal and trainable dogs.
But they are also large dogs who also appreciate human contact and don’t like being left alone for long periods of time. That’s often what causes a problem when one of these breeds are in an apartment.
Does renter’s insurance cover pets?
Renter’s insurance can cover pets as long as you include them when taking out the insurance. Most policies can include a pet liability clause to cover you and your pet from injury and property damage, two of the most common complaints from tenants.
That property damage is typically to the apartment or landlord’s furniture. It won’t cover your own property should your dog or cat chew or damage your own stuff.
