Austin dog and cat friendly apartments, yards, pet park
Most apartments in Austin are pet friendly.  I'd even go as far to say that about 98% of them will allow pets.  However, they will all have some criteria here.  Weight limit is the first.  Second is breed restriction.  Keep in mind that most Austin apartments will not accept pit bulls, rottweilers or Dobermans.  This is for insurance reasons.  Even if your dog is the sweetest pit bull ever, it is a fair housing law that if they don't accept one person's pit bull, they can't accept yours.  The Austin TX apartments are slightly more relaxed if you have a German Shepherd.  If you have a reptile, rabbit, flying squirrel, ect... be sure and check with the apartments to see if they accept these animals.  Another criteria is number of pets.  If you have 2 you are okay.  It's pretty tough to find an apartment that will accept 3 or more.  I only know of a few Austin apartments that will take 3.    
What is Pet Rent in Austin apartments?
When renting Austin TX apartments you will need to pay a pet deposit, pet fee, and some places will charge pet rent.  The pet deposit is fully refundable at move out as long as there is no damage done to your apartment.  The pet fee is non refundable.  And now on to pet rent.  Your dog and/or cat must pay rent too!  This can range anywhere from $5 to $30 a month.  This is non refundable and sometimes the fee is per animal, so you may have to multiply those numbers by two.  Sometimes the Austin TX apartments will divide up the pet deposit and fee into installments.  They do understand that moving can be expensive, so most Austin TX apartments will let you pay these fees in 2 or 3 monthly installments.   

What about Austin Texas Apartments with Dog Parks?

It is always very tough to live in an Austin TX apartments with a dog.  Your pup needs exercise and most places have strict rules where your dog needs to always be on a leash.  The apartments that have dog parks are great!  These are completely off leash fenced in areas, and your dog can socialize with the other dogs in the complex.  And what about taking your dog for a walk?  The great thing about Austin, TX is that there are green belt areas everywhere.  So try and find an Austin apartment that is next to a trail or park.  These would be the most pet friendly Austin TX apartments.  


There are many apartments that are dog and cat friendly. Almost every property for lease will have weight and breed restrictions. Apartment finders in your local area will keep all that on a database and can easily find an apartment for you and your pet...even if he/she weighs 200 pounds. 
My dog weighs 85 pounds. 

I have three dogs

Most partments will only work with two pets. Occasionally you will find apartments for people with three or four dogs. But its totally at the manager's discretion. Call your local apartment finder and see if someone is working with that at this time.

Can I break up the pet deposit into a few installments?

Many apartments will allow you to pay out your pet deposit usually in installments .On the other hand there are apartments that want the pet fee up front. Typically a portion of the Pet Fee is non-refundable. Your locator will let you know before you go looking.


They told me my dog was considered a vicious or aggressive breed 

Aggressive  breeds are typically Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Dobermans, Wolf Hybrids  and Chow Chows. Mastiffs and Akitas are also considered aggressive in many properties. If its a mixed breed and looks like a pitbull, they will consider it a pit. Many apartments also have restrictions on Boxers and even Beagles because of their barking. There are a number of Austin apartments that are breed friendly. Some properties will take a German Shepherd, but not  Chows. Other apartments will do a pet interview. No property can deny you if its a service dog, however you must prove it. Call us and we will let you know who will work with you and your dog.
