Appleby Gardens Condominium will welcome your new cat or dog with pleasure, but has policies to ensure that your pet ownership is responsible so it does not affect the pleasure of other owners. Having a pet can be one of the most soul soothing relationships for some, while it can present itself as a nuisance to others. Learning to coexist in the same building requires understanding and responsibility from both pet owners and non-pet owners.

The Rules
As with most condominiums there are few hard and fast rules. The one most new owners will need to concern themselves with immediately is that new pets are limited to a 40 pound or 18 kilogram maximum for all pets at Appleby Gardens Condominium . This rule is meant to bridge the gap from the amazing benefits of pet ownership and yet create an environment conducive to the enjoyment of the facilities by all condo owners.

Other rules regarding pets are generally posted by the municipality. The City of Burlington requires dog licensing of all dogs within the town which differs based on whether the pet is sterile or not. There is also a dangerous dog regulation that states extra care must be taken by pet owners of pets that have bitten or attacked another person or animal without provocation.
Another responsible owner rule is one that most are already aware of; stoop and scoop. All animal feces within the City of Burlington and Appleby Gardens Condo areas must be immediately removed by the owner and placed in a bag in a trash receptacle. This of course helps support a clean environment for the enjoyment of all.

Condo Pet Ownership Tips
If you are excited to move into Appleby Gardens Condo and just as excited to embark on a new pet ownership adventure as well, be sure to follow these tips to keep your pet, you and your neighbours happy. First consider a breed that maxes out at the limit imposed by Appleby Gardens, posted above of 40 lbs. Next consider the activity level of your pet in concert with your own activity level.

You would not necessarily want a breed that requires active exercise daily if you yourself are not prepared for the daily exercise as well. Training your new puppy in a Condo also takes some consideration, with the extra time it may take to get from your unit to outdoors, maybe a lower floor would be wise. Consider proper crate training as well to ensure a happy pet if you are away from them for long periods of time.

Take time to understand what a condo responsible pet owner is to ensure you, your pet and neighbours all have the same quality of life.
