Renting - have large dogs

    Recommended Posts

    Hi everyone

     

    We are planning on moving to SA towards the second half of 2012.

     

    Coming along with us are our two Rottwelier kids. Both 1 1/2 yrs of age now.

     

    Is renting difficult if you have large dogs?

     

    My wife and I ideally would like to live outside of the main city centre. A house with fair bit of plot area would be great. We plan on renting for the first two years before deciding on where to buy.

     

     

    Thanking you in advance for your replies.

    I love Rottweilers. We had 2 but both passed away now. We would love to get another but have put it off until the move. You may find it difficult to find a rental but not impossible though.

    Hi there

     

    We got the first house OH applied for and we have a German Shepherd and a Border Collie, I know they not as big as rotties but I was worried the Shepherd would put people off. Try not to worry too much you will find something if you are prepared to look around.

    We own a rental and our tenant has 2 big alsations...personally I would rather rent to people with dogs than kids...much less hassle. Dogs are kept outside here...instead of inside and that seems to be the norm. Most tenancy agreements stipulate the dogs must be kept outside. If you are prepared to look around and maybe offer a little over the weekly rental price..you will be fine.

    Hi everyone

     

    Thanks so much for the replies.

     

    Our two Rotties are our kids. We don't have any other kids.

     

    Diesel and Shadow currently live outside, so this practice will continue once we come to SA. When they do come into the house they know when to go out.

     

    Thanks once again.
