Making Residential Complex Living Easier For Your Pet

More than 62% of Australian households have pets — almost two-thirds of the population. With such a large number of animal lovers, it can be a challenge for tenants to find suitable properties, especially in residential complexes comprised of units or townhouses.

As a pet owner, we have some tips on how to make life easier for your pets in a residential complex, or for choosing your next home.

Consider whether your home matches your pet’s needs

Think about your pet’s needs for activity and access to the outdoors. If you have a dog that requires regular walking, consider living in a ground-level complex to make it more convenient for you and your pet to get around.

Many townhouse developments, such as Dakabin Crossing, have courtyards that can be suitable for many pets to meet their need for activity and sunshine. If you want to allow your cat into the courtyard though, consider if there are spaces that may require cat netting or barriers, so they don’t ingratiate themselves upon the neighbours. If you’re a renter, consider if there are areas such barriers can be installed temporarily without requiring permanent fixing or property damage.

Set bathroom routines

If you’re a dog owner in a complex without an outdoor area, it’s helpful to set a bathroom routine for your pet and to stick to it. This will keep your home odour-free and your pet disciplined. Cat owners, on the other hand, need to make sure their litter box is kept clean to avoid soiling in unwanted places.

Bathroom routines apply more to dogs, as they usually need to ‘do their business’ outdoors. If you’re short-listing properties for your next home, think about where you can walk your dog for bathroom breaks.

Know your rights as a pet owner

Be aware of the by-laws for your residential complex. If they’re too restrictive or have an outright ban on pets, ask for reconsideration or proper consent.

Be open and transparent with your property manager. Go through the necessary legal processes, secure the right permits and get the proper documentation. When you do it by the book, you are more likely to be granted permission to keep a pet on the premises. Keep in mind that your rights as a resident is just as important as your rights as the property owner.

At Dakabin Crossing, we understand the important place pets have for many households. That’s why we created a pet-friendly development, with body corporate by-laws that allow your furry friends. To learn more about living at Dakabin Crossing with your pet, contact us today.
