You and your dog have just moved into a beautiful new apartment—congratulations! While you’re having a blast decorating the new space that you were itching to get into, remember that transitions can be tough for your furry friends. Here are just a few of our tips for keeping your pup happy in your new place:
Create a cozy area just for your dog
Whether it’s the area for your dog’s crate or the perfect spot for their dog bed, create a space for them that feels familiar and exciting. Dogs love to hang out around their humans, so consider choosing a space that will allow them to be near you most often.
You can encourage your dog to relax in their cozy new spot by giving them treats whenever they’re spending time there. Make sure to put their favorite toys in this area, too!
You’ll be amazed at how quickly your dog adapts to your new apartment when you take the time to create a space that they feel comfortable in.
Introduce your dog to the nearby sights and dog parks
While Broadstone Queen City has an excellent pet run on-site, you should be sure to check out some of the best dog parks that are close by! Some of our staff favorites include Lucky Dog Bark & Brew, Frazier Park, and the McAlpine Creek Park.
We also boast access to some of the most beautiful strolls in town! You’ll never get tired of taking your dog for a walk through the bustling South End and Uptown neighborhoods of town. You could also take your pup to Max & Lola South End where the dog-friendly atmosphere, cold beer, and wine bar are always calling your name.
We have a feeling that your dog will enjoy exploring the neighborhood just as much as you will!
Give your dog frequent spa days
Once you’ve lived with a dog, chances are that you’ll never want to go back to life without one! But, if we’re being honest, it does come with a (sometimes smelly) price.
You and your dog will be happiest if you keep your dog fresh and clean! We know that grooming appointments can get really expensive, and that’s why we offer an on-site pet spa! Whether it’s just a regular bath or an easier way to clean off the evidence of a mud puddle well-enjoyed, we wanted our residents to have do-it-yourself access to a groomer-quality dog spa.
