When you are searching for a pet friendly apartment, you may quickly realize that not all landlords accept dogs or even certain dog breeds. It's important to demonstrate that you are a good owner and your dog is well trained before many people will allow a dog in their rental. However, even if your dog is on his best behavior, some landlords may require you to pay an extra pet deposit.
