Are you looking to get an adorable little puppy? Just because you’re adding a new four-legged member to your family doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to apartment living! Here at Highland Pinetree Apartments in Fullerton, California, we love animals just as much as you do! That’s why we offer pet-friendly apartments to our renters. 

We also understand that living with a brand new puppy can be a lot of work. That’s why we are sharing three steps on how to make living in an apartment with a puppy much easier!

Step 1: Do Your Homework

With hundreds of different dog breeds and mixes to choose from, it can be overwhelming picking the perfect pup for you and your family. And it doesn’t end there either! Once you have chosen your pup, you have to find an apartment that will even let you have a dog. It’s important to do your research because all apartment complexes have different pet policies, and not all of them might be a good fit for you.

Step 2: Make Your Pet Feel Comfortable

It’s going to take some time for your puppy to adapt to your new home. That’s why it’s so important to make sure he feels comfortable throughout this whole process. Some ways that you can do this are sticking with a strict routine, designating your pup’s own private space, and pet-proofing your apartment to allow for free roaming. As you do these things, your pet will adjust quicker and will soon come to love his new home!

Step 3: Train, Train, Train

It’s important that your puppy is well-trained—especially while living in a relatively small space together! You don’t want to be constantly cleaning up after him and trying to keep him quiet. Teaching him bathroom rules, how to sit, and how to be home alone will help make life so much easier for both you and your new puppy in your pet-friendly apartment!

Living with a puppy in an apartment can be challenging at first, but the joy that comes with it is so worth it! As you do your homework, make your pet feel comfortable, and train your puppy well, you can make your lives together a lot easier.
