we - our family - is planning to move to the Pocatello/Idaho Falls area soon and need to rent for awhile ~ we like both areas! We are coming from Indiana so it is difficult for us to come out just to house hunt and want to rent to give us time to shop for a house.

any suggestions on how to locate a reasonable place to rent? We are a family of 4 - 2 adults, 2 teens plus our 2 dogs.

Renting with pets in either area is no easy task. I'd say close to 95% of the rentals do not allow pets. Check with real estate agents to get leads on those who own properties they won themselves and rent out, have documentation that the pets are fully vaccinated and spayed/neutered along with a statement from your current landlord.

We have always been home owners, we have just sold our home and want to relocate. This is our choice to move to Idaho. It's been a rough personal 2 yrs. The economy cost my husband his job and now I get to choose where we live. I chose Idaho, he chose Pocatello!

I can only speak from my single personal experience. I had to rent a house for about a year, and found one that suited well, but was a No Pets listing. I looked it over with the owner, and said I had a 10 year old dog who was very well housebroken. If the owner wouldn't mind, I would like to bring her over so he could check her out before I put down a deposit.

He agreed, and when he met my dog, asked for another $50, refundable, on my security deposit. In this case, a little face to face with me and my dog made all the difference. It might not work for you, but it's worth a try... folks out here love their dogs, and there are a lot of them.

My wife and I are also moving to Idaho falls area very soon with 2 dogs, one rather large, lovable mutt and a smaller more house oriented dog . I would hate to have to live in the motel 6 for an extended amount of time due to the problem with finding a pet friendly landlord. Does anybody have any leads on a good property management company in the area?

Looking for the same. But we have 7 humans besides the 10 yr old dog and 3 yr old cat.

Not feeling terribly hopeful that we'll be able to bring all of us. I've found apartments that will accept indoor cats. But the cat is the one that would be easiest to leave behind. What do you do with a hairy, smelly but loveable 10 yr old Golden Retriever who is part of the family??

I feel for you Carlymac, I'll be prayin for you guys, Lord knows you have alot on your hands! As for me I'd rather live in a tent at a campground than get rid of my dogs!!! I think it's really a matter of money when its all said and done. I think a hefty deposit would sway most landlords and property managers, I just hope they aren't to greedy.

Hi all, my husband just rented a small cottage that accepts pets, took a lot of rejection or very shabby places before finding this little gem.

However, in this latest challenge he found out from a bank teller that the way around the "no pets" is to get a doctors statement saying that your pet is for medical reasons, ie, stress, or whatever you can think of that a register physician will sign off on.

We did not do this, but thought it might help the other dog mum + dads out there !!!

The journey never ends ....

See you in Idaho,

SteveTheDog's Mum

Very clever but I doubt we could come up with a legitimate medical need for our critters. If anything they are causing us stress.

Maybe their DVM could write a note about the stress reaction of the animals being separated from you, Carlymac.

Boy, I see a real opportunity for someone who owns property and is trying to carve out their own niche. Rentals for people with pets.

I like what Banjomike did. .. Very resourceful. Perhaps more would be workable with meeting the animals. Are you looking for a house or apartment, carlymac? I think a realtor is the way to go.

Good luck
