Techniques To Walk Your Dog In Your Apartment Community
Aug 1st, 2011 by andrew

Owning a dog can present its own set of challenges if you plan on living in an apartment community. And making sure you pet gets enough exercise can be problematic if your apartment home doesn’t have enough green space  But everyone must walk their dog  even in apartment homes that are not conducive to doing so. We have listed some tips that will teach you how to walk your dog safely in your complex.

What Are The Rules

The first thing is first, ask your landlord or apartment manager if pets are allowed in your community.  Are there any restrictions regarding what type of pet you can own? Many properties will have rules regarding pet weight and breed type.  Also some places on the community may be off limits to pets.

You might be lucky and have a dog park that is within walking distance your your place.  Be sure and ask your leasing agent where renters go to walk their pets.

Safety Is Key

Its very important to recognize your pets behavior.  Maybe your pet doesn’t like other animals, people, or children. You might have to avoid playgrounds and the pool area where many people congregate.  If your pet is aggressive towards other pets, then you will need to take the appropriate route to avoid them.

Of course a leash will solve most of the problems with excited and aggressive pets. It will give you the control of keeping your pet within a short distance of you.

Courtesy Is Not Underrated

Its always important to be courteous to others. Its possible other tenants won’t like your pet no matter how cute and sweet it is. Keep your dog away from the other renters unless your invited over.

Also don’t allow your pet to make a mess without cleaning it up. Read about leasing Garland apartments for rent and apartments in Rockwall TX

How To Organize Your Apartment Garage

We have listed some tips renters can use today if their apartment garage is a mess and is overflowing with your personal belongings.  If you simply assess all of your items  and how often you use them, you can organize your things and even have more space for your car.

Tools and Supplies

Shelving is one of the easiest ways to get your tools and supplies off the floor creating more space in your garage. Shelving is perfect to hang tools including saws and hammers on pegboards. And store smaller items in glass jars and place them on the shelves.

If you have any dangerous or hazardous chemicals, these need to be locked away in a cabinet.  If you have pets or kids, you want to make sure they don’t get into any of them.

Sports Stuff

Now assess all of your sports equipment. You probably will use a bike much more often than a pair of skis.  So hang your skis on the wall as you probably won’t need access to it as often as your bike and helmet. The latter two items should be in a more easily assessed place like the ground.

Have you thought about purchasing a ventilated storage bin? This is perfect for equipment that helmets and gloves that get moist and sweaty.  It allows more breathability and will increase the lifespan your your belongings.

Its not really a good idea to keep your sports equipment on the floor. Many renters simply prop their equipment on the wall.  Its easy for these items to fall over and ding a car door or even damage the equipment itself.  Read more about organizing your garage in your Las Colinas apartments and Dallas luxury apartments for rent.
