 Denver is Pet Friendly

It’s really important to find the very best home for you and your four-legged friend, and so it’s worth having a checklist of criteria to consider when thinking about where you’d like to live.

Things to look for when finding a pet friendly home

When you’re looking for pet friendly communities to move to, take into account the following points:

What is the maximum number of dogs or cats allowed in an apartment or building?

Is there an on-site dog wash station, dog run or park?
Is there an off-site dog park in neighborhood?

Are there any breed restrictions?

How many bedrooms will your property have?

How close is the property to RTD Light Rail?
What is the general area/neighborhood like?

Denver City has in place a Dog Compliance Ordinance. Some apartment blocks and areas restrict the following dog breeds:

American Pit Bull Terriers
American Staffordshire Terriers
Staffordshire Bull Terriers

In addition to American Pit Bulls and Staffordshire Terriers being restricted from the City of Denver, some dog friendly apartments in Denver may also have other restrictions on different kinds of dog breeds too.

Some apartment blocks or housing communities will change their rules from time to time, so it is always worth checking to see what the current guidelines are.

Considering your pet when moving home in Colorado

One of the most important rules is to take your time to find the best home for you and your beloved pet. Moving to a new house, buying or selling can be a stressful time so make sure you find a reputable, trustworthy agent like Kenna Real Estate to make the process as easy as possible.

Look very carefully and research the area you want to move to in Colorado. Some places, in some states have Housing Communities which aren’t always tolerant to pets.

Home buyers and sellers with pets in Colorado

Stop and think for a moment about the point of view of a landlord, housing manager, property owner, or condominium association board. They may have been buying, letting or selling properties for some time and could possibly have had bad experiences with people who weren’t responsible pet owners. Sometimes people will even try and sneak pets into accommodation that isn’t pet friendly, or where there is an express ban on pet ownership.

Agents and sellers might have legitimate concerns about pets being safely confined, having their property damaged by pets, or worries that animals might be very noisy and disturb others.  

All these concerns are very real and must be considered by all parties. If you’re looking to buy an apartment, house or condo you must be able to assert yourself as a sensible and worthy pet owner, someone who is responsible for their animal’s welfare, but also one who thinks of others needs too.

Make use of local Colorado Resources when buying or selling a home

Look into contacting your local humane society or animal care and control agency which serves Colorado, or the locale you are thinking about moving to in the state

They’ll often be able to provide you with a list of apartment blocks or genuinely pet friendly communities in Denver that will allow people to keep their pets with them.

It’s always best to try and speak to professionals in the field of animal welfare but see if you can also find a community apartment guidebook at a grocery store, or on the street.

These often have detailed and accurate advice on the best places to move to with pets and will be able to give you any other specifics such as what breeds of animal aren’t allowed and any weight restrictions.

Forget about looking for places to live that really don’t accept animals or pets. You’ve got a much better chance of finding your dream home if there are lots of other people in the vicinity with animals too.

Individual home and condominium owners tend to be the easiest people to win over. Think about looking for a community to live in, which has a good set of pet guidelines in place and make sure that residents are aware of any obligations they might have.

Prove you are a responsible pet owner

Give proof that you are and can be a responsible pet owner. If you have documentation or references to hand, show those.

Think about the following methods of proof:

A letter of reference from any past or present landlords or housing associations which will support your assertion of being a responsible pet owner.

If you have documentation that asserts your dog has been trained or is enrolled in a training class

Vet’s letter which proves you are diligent at taking care of your pet

Documents that prove your dog or cat has been spayed/neutered or vaccinated against rabies.

If you find a place that you love, and want to live in, but discover that it has a no-pets policy, this can often be because of bad past experiences. Addressing your concerns and proving that you are a responsible pet owner can go a long way to helping your cause, especially if you use the methods noted above.

Prove that you are a clean, and responsible pet owner by showing that your pet is house/litter trained and demonstrate that you will always clean up after your pet, especially outdoors and that any waste will be disposed of safely, carefully and thoughtfully.

Responsible pet owners in Denver are excellent residents and good people to have as neighbors. Usually, this is because they have had to try harder to find the house of their dreams. Once they’re settled in a residence, pet owners will tend to stay put for longer periods of time. Let anyone who you are buying, selling or renting from know that you are in for the long haul and that you know and understand owning an animal is a privilege and not a right.

Sometimes it can help to bring your pet to meet the owner of a house or apartment. If they can see you have a well cared for, well behaved animal they may be more inclined to work with you.

Let people know you look after your pets with the same care you would invest in a new home, and yourself. This will speak volumes.

As mentioned previously, give proof that your pet is spayed or neutered and will therefore be happier, calmer and well behaved.

Make it clear your dog or cat (or other animals) will be kept under control at all times and that you fully understand there are health and safety benefits to making sure this happens. Consider putting together a collection of photos or other documents which prove you can look after a pet

Be willing to perhaps pay a little more money for your property to cover any accidents or damages, this is perhaps more pertinent if you are looking to rent a home or are looking at buy to let in Denver rather than buy outright, but it is worth pointing out
Get any agreements about pets in writing, so that everyone knows where they stand and are happy with the situation. If you’re renting, make sure you get a pet addendum to your rental agreement.

Agreements like these protect people, property, and the pets themselves. Have any extra fees put into writing too so that everything is legal, above board and can be called upon to help defend your case should you need to seek help at any time.

Request copies of any house agreements or rules pertaining to pets, too, for added reassurance and safety.

Above all, be honest and clear regarding your intentions to live with a pet. It is far better to know where you stand from the outset than get a way down the line with a house sale or move and then find you can’t take it any further because you didn’t research the area properly or didn’t realize you couldn’t home a pet there.

If you’re looking for a pet friendly home in Denver, or simply want to investigate pet friendly communities in Colorado, or any other place within the state, then feel free to contact Kenna Real Estate today.

We’d be happy to help you on your way to finding the perfect residence for you and your beloved pet. We understand that animals are part of your family too, so we’ll work with you to get the right result at the right price.

Contact Kenna Real Estate to talk through finding the best animal friendly community in Colorado for you and your pets. We’re always around and happy to assist you with whatever your requirements are.
