Looking for a pet friendly apartment in Gainesville? Finding an apartment that is dog-friendly shouldn't be a challenge. At Swamp Rentals, we've made it easy for you by filtering down to the communities that let you and your best furry bud live together and fully enjoy each other's company! If you own a dog or would love to have one in the future, you'll be able to pick from a great selection of apartments in Gainesville that fit your needs and Fido's too.
Pet-friendly apartments vary on the type of species permitted, so you'll want to narrow down your search a step further by selecting the dog-friendly subcategory. Dog-friendly, however, may include limitations on type of breed, weight, and size. For example, some communities restrict to animals that weigh under 25 pounds and do not permit pit bulls or pit bull mixes, or have a two pet maximum limit. While it may be frustrating to encounter these rules, there are other communities that welcome all breeds and sizes.
Some apartments may also require vaccination records, a photo and proof of spay/neuter. Gathering all these documents from your veterinarian ahead of time will prepare you for faster approval and a stress-free moving process. Most communities will require a non-refundable pet deposit that may or may not include a monthly pet fee, so make sure to add this category in your budget.
Another thing to consider when searching for dog-friendly apartments in Gainesville is the outdoor environment, which ideally includes big, open spaces or even dog parks for daily walks and exercise. Some apartments have designated dog walk areas with nature trails and playgrounds for dogs. You can always pick a community that is in range of some beautiful dog parks in Gainesville, like Dogwood Park & Daycare on SW Archer Rd. This is a good opportunity to meet other locals and introduce your dog to some new friends!
