5 Ways to Make Your Apartment Pet Friendly with Limited Space

Owning a pet in an apartment can be challenging at times. You have limited space without a personal backyard, making it difficult for your pets to get the needed exercise and stimulation. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t or shouldn’t own a pet. In fact, MCLife loves pets! We love to brag about our pet policy and pet-friendly amenities. So, if you’re looking to make your apartment more pet friendly, check out the following tips:

Pet-Proof Your Apartment

The most important thing you need to do before bringing home a new fur baby is to pet-proof your apartment. Put away any food, cleaning supplies, and fragile items in cupboards or on high shelves where your pets can’t reach them. If you have any hazardous items in the bottom cabinets, move them to higher ones in case your pet get into them. You also should take a look at any plants or other decorations you have around your apartment to make sure they’re not toxic or a choking hazard.

Set up Gates

If your pet isn’t potty trained yet, you may want to set some boundaries until they are. You can kennel train them while you’re at work or away, but you also might want to consider a solution for when you’re at home. Pick up some baby gates to block off a small area for your pet to explore without getting into too much trouble. You may want to start them off in a bedroom or the kitchen where you can play with them or check on them easily. A bonus for this option is that gates don’t take up any room in your apartment.

Use Apartment Amenities

The Place at Terracina prides itself on being a pet-friendly apartment community. Not only do we allow any type of pet without breed or size restrictions, but we also have tons of amenities for your furry family members. Take your pups to the dog park to get some exercise and socialize with your neighbors, and then wash them off before heading back inside. We also have plenty of green areas and space to take your dogs for a stroll around the community. You don’t have to stay cooped up inside a small space when the property has so much to offer you and your pets.

Buy Small Toys

You want to dote on your pets and show how much you love them all the time, but the toys can easily take over your apartment. Stick with a few small toys that your pets will love (until they shred them to pieces). Get a few puzzle toys to keep your pets busy while you’re at work and to exercise their minds. You also should get a toy box or bin to put everything away at the end of the day (this way it won’t feel like the toys are taking over your home).

Get Organized

You have a limited amount of space in your apartment, so organization is key. Get bins and tubs for your pet’s food, toys, care products, and anything else you need. Set up a dedicated section for your pets to put the bins and then place a bed or kennel next to it. If you’re tired of tripping over dog bowls and litter boxes, you should check out our article on how to hide these items.

The most important thing is that you love your pets. You can find a few easy ways to make your apartment pet friendly, but really all the need is some love and devotion.
