Dogs And Downtown Ottawa Condos- Sometimes They Mix And Sometimes They Don't

If you are thinking about buying an Downtown Ottawa condo and currently own a dog there are some things you are going to have to look into first. Some condominiums allow dogs and some don't and you are going to have to find a condo that welcomes dogs with open arms to protect yourself in the future.

You see, while some condos say that they will accept dogs, some really don't welcome these animals and in some cases there may be things going on behind the scenes to change the dog policy.

An uncontrolled dog can really wreck havoc on a condominium building. If an elevator is carpeted it doesn't take long for stains to appear from dogs that can't wait to get to the bottom and head outside. If the elevator is floored, small puddles can appear out of nowhere and be left unhandled by inconsiderate dog owners.

Make sure that the dog policy in the Downtown Ottawa condo you are looking at is supported by most of the condo dwellers. A good way to find out about this is to ask how many owners have a dog. Dog owners will support a dog policy.

You do not want to move into in Downtown Ottawa condo where dogs are allowed in but are frowned upon. You want to be welcomed into the new building as a dog owner.

The best thing you can do is find a building that is dog friendly and introduce your dog to your neighbors as soon as you move in. You can let them know that your dog is safe and introduce yourself as a responsible dog owner that will do everything possible to keep the interior of the building free of any doggy messes and will take full responsibility of your pooch outside as well.

Unless you are prepared to have to give up your dog at some point, you'll need to make sure that the policy to allow dogs into the Downtown Ottawa condo building is strong and will probably remain in effect for many years. This is the best way to avoid a problem in the future if you are committed to your loyal canine companion and don't want to have to move out of the condo later on.
