Dogs used to be second-class citizens in apartments, but a “cultural shift” has led developers to court their owners.

I use to live in a building that when moved in had 3 small dogs. In 6 years the owners allowed the 100 apartment building to take in more dogs to the point that there were over 45 dogs in the building range from all sizes: small the great danes. The building use to be clean and smelled great, but the property manager favored the dog owners and soon started to see dog urine in the hallways, dog feces all over, the building smelled and wet dog hair. When you are paying over $1,800.00 a month, I knew it was time to go and left. It was the best move I could make, going to a new place that respected the residents over the rights of dogs. I feel sorry for people living in apartments that do not allow dogs, but then management changes policies and allows dogs to overrun apartments.

What a great idea. I mean, however, owner's must take care of their pets and clean up after them. Yes, I have a dog, and I do clean up after her. But, I would not move into a place where other pets make messes - that would be just gross!

Can we talk about how you currently can't walk 100 feet in Minneapolis without looking at a dog piss stained snowbank? So gross.
