Science has proven there are many benefits to having a pet in your life. If, however, you’re living in an apartment, here are some things to consider when getting a pet or bringing one into your new living space.

Check with the landlord on acceptable pets. Dogs, cats, birds, lizards, etc. Landlords are generally very specific on what dog breeds they will not allow.

The logistics of having a pet should be also considered. The size of your apartment, your lifestyle (dogs need regular walks and potty breaks, whereas cats are much lower maintenance.) Birds can be noisy and easily stressed.

Along with this, pay particular attention to pet deposits and extra fees ahead of time to make sure when you do move in with your pet, you’re both off to a great start.
