Signs Of A Dog-Friendly Community

by Jeff Rochford 10/28/2018

If you’re a dog lover, you’re probably going to want to move into a community that caters to your love of animals. As you cruise different communities to find just the right place to live, there are a few things that you should be on the lookout for if you want your pooch to feel at home as well. 


You See A Lot Of Dogs Around


This may seem obvious, but it’s something to be aware of on your home search. If you see a lot of dogs, you know that the people in your neighborhood are supportive of dogs. If there doesn’t seem to be too many four-legged friends running around, then maybe the community won’t be as receptive to your own pet. You would hate to move into a home, only to find out that your neighbors really don’t like dogs. This could be a sign of future problems in the neighborhood.


You See Dogs At The Parks Nearby


If you are riding around a community, exploring, and see plenty of dogs at the park, or even better, a dog park, you’ll know that you have chosen a good place to live. This shows that dogs are welcome in the area. If there’s a playground nearby, but many “no dogs allowed” signs, you could be in a place where dogs aren’t welcome many places. You want to feel that your dog is welcome especially in outdoor spaces. 


There Are Facilities For Dogs Nearby


If you can easily find a groomer, a vet, and a pet supply store nearby, you know that you’re in a good place for your dog. You can see that there’s a community surrounding you that cares about animals. These types of facilities allow you to keep your pet healthy, clean, and happy. You may even have easier access to other important things for you and your dogs like pet sitters, dog walkers, and more. 


You Can Find Plenty Of Walking Paths


If you love to walk, you’ll probably be looking for this feature in a neighborhood anyways, but walking paths are a good sign that dogs are welcome in a place. You need sidewalks, places without a lot of traffic, and perhaps some trails to help keep your dog active and healthy. Dogs will also love exploring new places often to keep their keen senses in check. 


Look At Local Establishments


If you stop into local coffee shops or restaurants and see dogs there, you definitely know for sure that you have chosen a great community for dog lovers. This is a sign that dogs are a part of everyday life, accepted, welcome, and almost required! Pets are a part of the family in a community like this. Your new home will not only be great for you but for your beloved pet as well.
