I need a realtor who has experience in finding rentals that accept a large dog. Either North County or SD area is an option. Any recc's?
Thx!

What kind of a large dog? Most realtors don't do rentals, try Craigslist and property management companies. And if you have a pitbull, it'll be even harder.

She's a lab mix. Does anyone know of any rental services in SD?

I'm not a realtor but I'll chime in... Most corporate owned places won't touch you because they have plenty of rental requests from people without pets so your best bet is to find a private party rental where someone is trying to rent out their old house on their own. Best of luck.

Just keep checking Craigslist, it's your best bet.

I'm really surprised that people have a hard time finding a place that will rent to them if they own a dog. Of course, that's because I live downtown, and virtually all apartments/condos allow pets. Most do not have breed restrictions.

Tony-I agree. Every single place I looked at took pets. One place put a limit of 50 lbs (my dog is 60), but when I was walking around, I saw two people with labs larger than mine. It's on an "honor" system. No one was going to weigh my dog to make sure she met the requirement.

I ended up finding a place that I can have a pet....more than one if I want to. I'm not being charged pet rent or a pet deposit. But, my deposit was higher than an apartment complex, since this is a private owner. She told me if my dog destroys the place, she'll just take my whole deposit. My dog won't so it's a good deal for me. My co-worker has what he calls a "zoo" dogs, cats, snakes, etc. and he's had no trouble finding places to rent. Granted, he doesn't have a fancy house and he said he had to make some sacrifices in terms of the quality of place.

The issue is her size. She's 50 lbs. This, for some reason, makes her a liability. Most places say yes to dogs only if they are 30 lbs. or less.

Maybe it's different up north but I just don't see how that could be. Look at this list of pet restrictions at HOAs downtown.

HOA Management Company Information

Your dog would not be a problem in most of these places.

Maybe you should move downtown. We're obviously much more pet friendly, which is a HUGE surprise. =p
