Sharing an apartment with a dog – a guide from the RSPCA ACT

February 20, 2009 – 2:14 pm

The RSPCA ACT has been kind enough to provide us with a downloadable copy of their excellent guide on apartment living with a dog.

It looks at the responsibility and considerations of having a dog in an apartment (such as allergies, talking to neighbors, researching the body corporate laws), as well as profiles of dogs more suited to apartment living and how to keep your dog entertained while you’re gone.

While this guide is focused on dogs living in apartments, it’s a great read for anyone renting or living with pets and is especially valuable for those who currently live in apartment and are thinking of getting a dog.

  5. Hi June,

    Have you tried searching for properties on and using our Pet Friendly Search Tool?.

    It’s the easiest way I know of currently to find rentals. Feel free to contact me for more information.
