January 15, 2023 in Burn's Apartments, General

At Burns Management, we know that four-legged friends are a part of the family. That’s why we’ve made some of our Capital Region apartment buildings dog-friendly! Your apartment will be their new home too, so finding a space that suits them is crucial. Here are our top tips on finding the right dog-friendly apartment for your fam!


Keep Your Commute in Mind

We know you hate leaving your pup behind, so we recommend keeping your commute in mind when looking for your new apartment. Luckily, our dog-friendly communities are perfectly situated in the Capital Region with access to major roadways so you can cut down your time away! Your commute time can be one of the first things you take into consideration when looking at new buildings, keep in mind the time it will take you to get to and from work.


Look at the Area as a Whole 

When looking at new apartments, it’s essential to research the local community as well! Will you be living near a public park, a walking trail, or a dog park? Being able to bring your pup out to get some exercise is a must. The perks of living in not only a dog-friendly apartment, but a dog-friendly community are extremely beneficial for your dog’s energy.


Our Burns Management properties kept your pups in mind when choosing our locations and designing our buildings. Our Iroquois Village community in Niskayuna even features its very own dog park! Our residents love the ability to socialize their dogs with neighbors and friends. Our Saratoga community, The Springs, has a dog spa and groomer on site! Our other Saratoga locations are just a few minutes walk away from local parks, nature trails, the Spa State Park, and dozens of incredible restaurants and local retailers that are also dog-friendly!


Do Your Research & Speak to the Leasing Office

Research is always important when looking into a new apartment, but especially so when you are bringing your dog with you! Many apartments are dog-friendly but have specific rules and regulations that are strictly enforced. Even if an apartment says they are dog-friendly, you should always call and speak to the leasing office to discuss all pet policies and fees before signing a lease. It’s important that you understand the rules of your community and ensure that you meet all requirements necessary. Before signing your lease, thoroughly read through it and ensure that all information is correct, and that you don’t have any lingering questions.


Floor Plan

When looking at the perfect place, imagine where your dog will spend their time! We have plenty of floor plans perfect for pups, even those who need their own bedrooms, or a hidden puppy play area. Our floor plans can meet all your personal and pet needs.
