It's important to make sure a house will be as good a place for your dog as it is for you.
When you’re looking at buying a new home, it’s important to consider how well your pet will adjust to it. Dogs deserve to be happy and comfortable in a place they can call home too, just as much as any human would. Here are some things that dog owners should consider when buying a new home.
Are there nearby dog-friendly parks or spaces?
Parks are a great way to get your dog out and about, so it's important to think about the parks within walking distance of your home. If you've got a small dog or one that is not very energetic, consider also smaller fields or open areas in and around housing estates. Of course, if you know that your pup loves playing with other dogs, and meeting new people, then it might be worth looking into nearby large parks with dedicated dog areas.
What's the area like?
As a dog owner, you want to make sure your new area is a safe and welcoming place for your pup. You should ask yourself:
How many kids are around? If it's a quiet area with only a few, that's fine, but if there are lots of families with young children, it might not be the best fit for you and your dog, depending on both of your temperaments!
Are there lots of cars driving by on busy roads? Some areas have more traffic than others and your dog might not like the extra noise rushing by the front door every few seconds.
It’s important to remember there are many factors to consider when buying a new home. While these may not apply to everyone, they can help you make an informed decision about whether or not a certain property is right for your dog, and your family as a whole!
