Default Do you rent?

How many dogs do you have...was it easy for you to find a rental? Just merely curious.

I'm contemplating that fourth dog (of 'mine') and my mom is arguing that I will never be able to find a rental with four dogs. I say if I can find one with three dogs, I can find one with four. I figure money talks...if I'm willing to put down a little more cash than usual for the landlord, I should be able to find something. What do you think?

I rent. I've always had better luck renting with private individuals rather than a company. I also don't mind renting in older sections of town, etc.

I had a lot of trouble renting with 4 dogs. That is why we own now. We have "scary" breeds though which doesn't help.

I rent. Two dogs is doable here pretty easily.

I rent.. and having dogs at all limits your options pretty drastically.. and when you do find some place dog friendly,2 is usually the limit for most places (and if not, there is a combined weight limit that usually tops off at 1 medium/large dog)
The problem is, few places are actually owned by independent landlords in major cities.. usually you have larger companies and rental associations, the rules are set in stone so a little money and extras (training certificates, references etc..) just doesn't do it for most.

Personally.. adding another wouldn't be something I would do. You might be able to squeeze 3.. since it's only one more then the "average" dog limit and your other dogs are already trained, vaccinated etc.. ... but 4 IMO is pushing it. Be prepared to pay more and live further away from popular real estate areas (since honestly, places that are in great locations and have average rent etc... don't NEED to have cushy pet restrictions. So they either don't allow or have tight rules for 1 dog or 2...and refuse to budge more then that, since they have plenty of people waiting to move in regardless)

I would find a place in the area you are searching for that allows the amount of dogs you do have... and THEN consider dog #4 if they are lenient.
I have seen some really sad situations and hard choices being made because someone just CANNOT find somewhere to live that is a reasonable distance and reasonable rent from where they need to be.. and I wouldn't wish it upon anyone. So my advice is, find a place to rent with the dogs you DO have. and once you are already there, then maybe try working the landlord with what a GREAT tenant you are and how you would like another

Just to give you an idea.
Places in Boston to rent.

From those places.. places that allow dogs.

from that..you aren't even BEGINNING to deal with weight limits, breed restrictions, numbers etc...

Yes, honestly that is very misleading. :/

Renting with three around here is doable... but not easy. I have not seen anything that allows four.

Just one dog and three or four ferrets depending, though three personal/permanent, and i can have up to 6.... but here they cant deny you for pets

Im not even sure the landlord knows about the ferrets, and they are exotics so technically harder to rent with... I'm sure the dog is known about, but we never really told them

It's hard around here to find a place to rent with dogs. At least unless you have the $$ to rent a whole house. Finding a place to rent with banned breeds is nearly impossible, and the majority that do allow dogs have weight restrictions.

My apartment allows 2 dogs, max.

Most places around here I've noticed have a 2 pet limit. Under 40-60lbs I think.
