Did you know that 67 percent of US households, or about 85 million families, own a pet? Pets are a big part of our lives and part of what makes our homes so special. 

At Grove House Apartments, we love pets. That’s why we have provided the best pet-friendly apartments around! If you are raising your furry friend in an apartment environment, here are three tips that can help keep your pet happy.

Plenty of Playtime

Just like humans, pets can become lonely and depressed. One way to avoid this is by giving your pet plenty of playtime. Personal one-on-one playtime is a great way for your pet to feel loved and connected to you. 

You can also provide entertaining toys for your pet to enjoy on its own. For our dog owners, click here for 16 of the best dog toys in 2021.

Time Outdoors

For dogs especially, it is important to get some outdoor time to be active. Time outdoors exposes dogs to the sights, sounds, and especially the smells that keep their minds alert and active

When living in an apartment, going to a local dog park is a great opportunity to provide this outdoor time. At Grove House Apartments, we are lucky to live so close to some great dog parks! Here are a few of our favorites:

Each dog parks is less than four miles from our property, making it fun for your pet and convenient for you! Don’t miss out on the opportunity to live so close to these great parks.

Proper Nutrition

Giving your pet proper nutrition is a very important factor in your pet’s health and happiness. The right amount of food is necessary for your pet to maintain a healthy weight and to avoid obesity or other harmful illnesses. If you have any other questions regarding the nutrition of your pet, contact a vet near you for more information.

We hope that these simple tips will help keep your pet happy! With proper playtime, time outdoors, and nutrition, your pet will be feeling great in its apartment living space.
