Now that you have found the perfect luxury apartment in Tampa with proximity to a variety of venues and pet-friendly amenities, you may be thinking about bringing home a new addition to your family. We’re talking about Fido the pup, of course!
Becoming a new pet owner is a big decision. This responsibility includes daily activities like watering, feeding, and exercise along with more sporadic things like trips to the groomers and regular trips to the vet for shots and checkups. If you are confident that you have the time and desire to have a pet, you are probably ready for one.
Picking the right pup requires research and consideration. Take time to research the types of dog breeds you are interested in before committing to a specific breed. Perhaps you love the way a certain breed looks but prefer the temperament of a different breed. Certain breeds do well in apartment settings while others do not. Experts recommend the following dog breeds for apartment dwellers: English Bulldogs, French Bulldogs, Shih Tzu, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and Pugs. Once you have decided the best breed for you, start looking at your local shelter or online adoptions pages on social media.
Welcoming a new pet into your space requires a bit of planning. We recommend pet-proofing your apartment the same way you would if a child were coming over. Puppies and kittens are clumsy and can be irritable just like a toddler, so make sure they have plenty to chew on or scratch up that isn’t your furniture or clothes.
Finally, before bringing your new fur-baby home, be sure you have read about puppy/kitty behavior and how to properly train them. Different types of treats and toys benefit different breeds just like training techniques will vary from animal to animal.
