How to Keep the Peace with Neighbors When You Live with Your Dog

Are you wondering how you can keep your dog in your apartment without being a nuisance to your neighbors?  The first thing you'll want to do is find apartments for rent in Cayce, SC that are pet-friendly.  This will already give you the reassurance that it is likely to see other dogs in the community.  Next, you'll want to familiarize yourself with the grounds so that you have a better understanding of where your dog can and cannot go.   From proper training to following the rules, there are many ways to keep the peace with your neighbors when you live with a dog in your apartment.

Familiarize Yourself with Dog-Friendly Areas

Whenever you take your dog for walks on the apartment grounds, you should always use the designated areas for pets.  Also, you will always want to be prepared to clean up after you pet, using proper waste removal bags and bins that are distributed throughout the complex.  If you have an indoor pet, you want to clean up the litter box frequently to avoid any permanent odors.

Make Sure Your Dog is Friendly

Be sure that your dog is properly socialized to interact with both pets and humans.  Because you will be living in a community, you want to be sure that your dog is accustomed to other dogs when they are playing in the dog park.  You always want to keep your dog from showing any aggressive behavior towards others.

Go to Dog Training

Dogs can be loud when they are excited or concerned.  However, when they are loud frequently, this is an issue for community living.  Be sure that you respect your neighbors and keep your animals from being loud inside your unit, especially late at night.  If you need to, train your dog to respond to commands to quiet down.

Clean Them Off Before Bringing Them Inside

Smelly and dirty animals can leave an odor behind in your unit and in the amenities that you share with other animals.  Be sure that you frequently bathe your animals to avoid these issues.  Also, keeping their paws clean will protect the surfaces in your apartment from needing to be repaired or replaced.  Long claws also pose a risk to others, so keep their claws trimmed, especially when they are socializing with other animals.

By following these few tips, you will be able to keep the peace with your apartment neighbors when you have a dog in your apartment.  It is important to follow the rules and be respectful when considering how to keep your dog entertained in our apartments for rent in Cayce, SC.  Contact us to hear about our pet-friendly amenities and schedule a tour of our apartment grounds today.
