Weight limits can range from 25-50 lbs.

Commonly Restricted Apartment Dog Breeds

Restricted dog breeds include any mix of any aggressive breeds or large dogs.  This is usually due to liability reasons with the buildings insurance policy that places policy restrictions on allowable pets.  That’s why larger tropical fish tanks are often not allowed incase of flooding.

  • German Shepherds
  • Akitas

Are there Exceptions?

You can always supply us with vet information and a letter which can be passed on to the property management company for their final approval. 

Service Animals:  Therea are no breed restrictions on service dogs with proper certification, veterinarian letter and photo of dog harness which needs to be kept on the pet at all times when in the common areas of the property,  then, Pet Fee and Deposit are waived.  Failure to use the identification harness at all times when on the community common grounds is considered a lease violation.    

However, the community manager first needs to approve all verification paperwork and evidence prior to move in which is not in our own control.  


Emotional Support Dog: 

Emotion Support Animals (ESAs):

Security Deposit & Pet Fees: 

There can be confusion regarding Emotional Support Animals (ESA) Requiring a Security Deposit:

Is there a pet deposit required to obtain an emotional support animal? The answer to this issue is straightforward and unambiguous, in which the Pet Deposit and Pet Fee is not required if the requirements and evidence are able to be verified. 

Just to confirm, is there a pet deposit required to obtain an emotional support animal?

Is there a pet deposit required to obtain an emotional support animal? The ESA and its owner are permitted to live in rental housing without having to pay a pet deposit or any other “pet”-related fees, such as monthly pet care costs, according to a clear statement from the FHA.


So, what’s the difference between an emotional support animal and a pet?

Assistance animals include ESAs, psychiatric service animals, and service animals (think guiding dogs). These animals help their owners who have a variety of problems, be they physical or psychological.

The distinction between ESAs and pets is the animal’s owner’s documented mental health issue. Licensed mental health professionals (LMHPs) is required to prescribe ESAs to patients as a component of their therapy. Such as with anxiety, sadness, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), an ESA can significantly improve quality of life.


The Purpose of an ESA Letter:

An ESA letter is given, and both the owner and the animal have legal protection under two federal statutes whenever a person is diagnosed with a mental handicap and the therapist believes that an ESA will aid the patient on their journey to recovery.

A legally binding declaration proving a person has a mental illness or psychological handicap and that they require their emotional support animal (cat or dog) to accompany them is known as an ESA letter. Your animal remains a pet without an ESA letter, and you are not entitled to exploit the advantages of ESA rules.


Cats and Dogs:

Because you must live with your ESA, a landlord cannot refuse you a place to live in rental properties, including houses and apartments. The term “reasonable” is crucial here, though, so here’s the “however.”

It is not even close to “reasonable” if you insist that your alligator or emotional support horse must live with you. The legal restrictions on reasonable accommodations are outlined in the fine print.

To ensure that owners of emotional support animals (ESAs) don’t have any difficulties when utilizing the legal protection provided by ESA regulations, recommend ESA letters for dogs, cats, and occasionally bunnies. Living with your ESA dog or cat while renting a place is definitely within the bounds of fairness!



When traveling with an emotional support animal, is there a pet deposit required? Nope!

The ACAA is another federal statute that safeguards ESAs and people with disabilities. According to this law, passengers can travel for free when using their ESA. Before you and Fido buy a plane ticket, you should finish your homework. The airlines have a say in the process even if the ACAA states that you can travel with your ESA.

Airlines now impose stringent ESA regulations because of the surge in ESA numbers on flights. Many restrict the number of animals allowed in each fight and only permit specific breeds of dogs and cats.


Exemptions from the Guideline

Being housing provider evictions possibilities still are valid in certain situations. Should your ESA be violent, damaging, or unruly, there is a good reason to terminate the agreement.

Lease Violations – Disturbances: 

Animal abuse or neglect is another reason. You will forfeit your ESA rights if you misuse or disregard them! It’s hardly surprising if your neighbors complain if the pet is causing a disturbance which is a lease violation if a bark all night long. 

Are There On-Site Dog Amenities?!!
