Finding a Dog-friendly Neighborhood

February 15, 2014

When searching for your dream neighborhood, it’s important to consider the needs of every member of the household—including the family dog!

Dog Friendly NeighborhoodIs the community walk-worthy?
How’s the traffic?
Are there veterinarians and pet stores nearby?
Does the city or HOA have pet or noise rules?
How close is the nearest dog park? 

If your dog could speak, these might be a few of his questions (ok, maybe not the one about the vet). Keeping Spot’s perspective in mind could help you choose a dog-friendly neighborhood that both of you can enjoy.
