In addition to this, I will also include a reference letter from a trainer. Showing that you are also diligent about the training for your dog goes a long way. Break down what your dog knows and their training routine. Ensure your landlord that things like potty training and destructive behaviors have been addressed so they aren’t concerned about the dog trashing their property. Also include your plan for how you will keep your dogs if you leave them at home – crates, closed in a room, daycare, etc – so they aren’t worried about constant barking during the day while you are at work. If your dog is having problems with these areas, be sure to contact your trainer to figure out how to work through these problem areas before you begin the moving process. Training milestones like the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test are also great resume builders, helping to reinforce that your dog is temperamentally sound and gone through training.

Building your doggie resume to have available during your rental search can be that extra added something to push your application over the edge and make you the candidate they have been dreaming of! Bring it to open houses or have an accessible electronic copy to quickly send for properties you are interested in. Giving you and your pooch a leg up during the search is always a great idea! Happy home hunting!
