How to Create a Pet Resume for Possible Landlords (Renting a place)

It’s safe to say that many of us have a pet. They are beloved members of our families, and many of us don’t know what we’d do without them. However, this can cause problems when it comes to renting an apartment, especially one where the landlord is very picky about the pets that are allowed in it.

Granted, things are getting better and better as time goes on but many renters, such as yourselves, are still finding problems when it comes to finding somewhere that will accept your pet. One of best ways to secure a new flat or house with a pet is by creating a pet resume.

That’s right; your pet is about to get professional. Here’s how.

Remember Why You Need a Resume

A pet resume is vital because it describes what your pet is going to be like and what kind of condition they are going to find their property on their first inspection. If your pet looks like a snarling, vicious dog, the chances are that you won’t get the apartment.

It will also give them an insight into what your pet’s health and attitude are like and the kind of behaviour that pet has, essential when other people are living in the same building.

Some Things to Include in Your Pet Resume

Before you start writing your per resume, there are some things that you’re going to want to include alongside. These include a photograph of your pet, preferably flattening, your pet’s name, obviously, the age of your pet and the breed.

This is a great way to start an introduction and gives the landlord all the information that they’re going to need to get a good first impression of your pet.

Start Describing Specifics

Once you’ve made a good first impression, you can start to move onto the more defining qualities of your pet. Firstly, start with your pet’s weight and size. This will give a good idea to your landlord whether the pet will actually fit in the building you want.

You’ll also want to include the sex of the pet, vital for if there are other pets in the building and information on whether your pet is spayed or neutered, for obvious reasons.

“In your pet resume, to increase your chances of securing the property, you may want to include any relevant information about your pet’s training. This could include behavioural courses and training sessions.” – William Sutton, a writer for Ox Essays.

    Bad cat owners get all cat owners a bad name. When we rented some years ago with two cats it was written into the agreement that we would pay for the carpets to be cleaned when we moved out. When the time to leave arrived the landlord was so impressed with the cats’ cleanliness she waived the carpet cleaning.

    Thankfully I never had any issues with Jamima. I included in my applications her certificate with all her details and landlords were made aware she was my companion cat. And one landlord was even curious what a Torti point dash cat was. That’s what was put on her records by the vet. Next time? To be continued……..Cheers,H
