If your pet is part of your family and you are shopping for a condo, think ahead and do your research before signing on the dotted line. First, of course, ask whether pets will be allowed and if there might be restrictions on size, breed or other aspects. With condominium residents living so close to each other and passing neighbours in the hallways and elevators, having a well-behaved pet is a must. You definitely want to find out the conditions ahead of time, rather than end up in an awkward situation. In addition, take a good look at the condominium’s surroundings. Are there parks close by where you can take your furry friend for walks?
The great news is that many of today’s new condominiums not only allow pets, but also provide pet grooming areas and spas with washing stations conveniently located on the ground floor. This saves a lot of wear and tear on the flooring throughout the building and in your suite.
When you live in a condo, lifestyle is key – even for your pet! Make sure that he or she is going into an environment that will be welcoming and fun.
