The Myths vs. the Facts About Pets in Rentals

Myth:  If I allow one pet in a rental I have to allow pets in ALL of the rentals.

Fact:  By using precautions and  having a set procedure you can successfully weed out the  irresponsible people without penalizing the responsible owners.

Myth:  More than one animal per rental is too many.

Facts:  Most animals are social animals and do best when living with a companion.  Sometimes when an animal is alone, without companionship, they become bored which can lead to destructiveness.

Myth:  It is preferable to rent to people with small dogs rather than big dogs.

Fact:  Many  larger dogs tend to be quite laid back.  Older, larger dogs can be much less active and easier to housetrain.

Myth:  Cats must be de-clawed to prevent destruction of the unit.

Fact:  De-clawing a cat may lead to behavior problems.  The procedure is painful and may lead to chronic pain and depression.  Teaching a cat how to use a scratching post is the ideal solution rather than de-clawing.
