When it comes to your furry friends, finding Orlando apartments with dog parks is almost just as important as finding a place with running water! Your pet is your family, and keeping your little (or big) family member happy is a very important aspect in finding your new apartment home. While many communities may be near one of the many beautiful community dog parks
in the Orlando area, others may be in a location that doesn't offer one nearby. This is where finding a community with a dog park is necessary for the health and happiness of your pet.
Sometimes it can be hard to find an apartment that can accommodate you and your furry friend. All dogs need their exercise and let's face it; living in an apartment can make it challenging to give your dog the exercise and play time he or she needs. Most apartments do not have yards like a house would, so they offer dog parks as a great alternative. This feature can be found in many pet friendly apartments
throughout the greater Orlando area, and even some Downtown Orlando apartments
The Conveniences of Dog Parks in Your Apartment Community
Communities with dog parks provide residents and their pets with several conveniences due to this unique amenity. You'll never have to leave your apartment community to have an outing with your pet. Anyone with a pet knows going to the dog park or beach is always an event! Between packing snacks and water, loading the dog in and out of the car and ensuring you didn't forget Fido's favorite ball, you've already spent 20 minutes getting out the door. Communities with dog parks allow you to forget the planning and just walk out the door; grab the toys, the leash and the dog...and you're on your way! Additionally, this means you can keep your car a little cleaner
as your dog will be spending a little less commute time in your vehicle. This easy access allows for more frequent exercise for your pet as you don't have to invest so much time and effort in the trip. Puppy play dates make for a well socialized and behaved dog. This venue is great for getting your dog comfortable with other dogs in the neighborhood and making friends. This is also an opportunity for you as the dog owner to meet your neighbors!
Many apartments with dog parks encompass amenities within the dog park itself. Some parks feature dog swimming pools, which are perfect for cooling down your pup during those hot summer months. Free clean up bags that are restocked regularly are available in some communities as well. Speaking of cleaning up, since your dog is likely to get rather dirty rolling and frolicking around the park, you may want to look for apartment communities that provide an outdoor doggy wash and spa, equipped with dog soap.
If you are considering a few communities in which to call home, there are important questions you as a renter need to ask and consider. Are there breed and weight restrictions? Is there a pet deposit? If so, how much is it? Are there any other apartment features such as a patio or balcony
or hardwood flooring that would make life with your pup more convenient? These are important questions to ask your leasing office when touring pet friendly apartments in Orlando.
