Tips for Living in an Apartment With Pets

Living with pets is incredibly gratifying and rewarding, but living with pets in an apartment can come with unique challenges and considerations. In today’s post, we’ll provide you with a few tips that can make apartment living easier for you and your furry friends.

Pelican Bluff proudly offers pet-friendly apartments in Windsor. We would love to welcome you and your furry friends into our Windsor apartments, so please come by our leasing office or give us a call to request more information!

Get Into A Routine

While renting an apartment has unique benefits over renting a home, homes do allow you to simply open the back door whenever your pet needs to go outside. Apartments require a bit more consideration, and developing a bathroom routine is one of the best ways to help your dog adapt to your new living situation. Train them to go in certain areas around the building, and always make sure that you’re picking up after them

If you have cats, try to place their litter box in an isolated area of the apartment. This allows them to feel more comfortable about using the space, and it can also keep your main living areas smelling fresh and clean.

Try For The First Floor

If you’ve ever lived underneath noisy neighbors, then you know just how frustrating it can be to hear them stomping and clomping around at all hours of the day. While it’s unlikely that your pet’s footsteps will make as much noise as a tenant, you should consider that your downstairs neighbors probably don’t want to hear your pet playing and running around the apartment throughout the day. In addition to making less noise, living on the first floor can also make it easier to take your pet in and out to use the restroom.

Schedule Playtime And Exercise

Just like you, your pets can get bored and lonely. If you work long hours or aren’t home for much of the day, consider asking a trusted neighbor or friend to come by and give your furry friend some attention. When you are home, make sure that you’re stimulating your pet by playing with them or taking them out for walks. You’ll both benefit from the exercise!

Alternatively, you may want to consider taking your pet to daycare if you can’t give them the attention they need throughout the day. Plenty of animal daycare centers are willing to walk and play with pets while their owners are away, and this can significantly improve your furry friend’s quality of life and give you peace of mind while you’re away.
