She said YES! SO went to pay rent and our property manager said that the homeowner had done some research on the dog (I was worried about this), and was extremely wary – especially the bit about the breed loving to dig. It wasn’t looking good. They wanted references for his last dog. SO had no idea where to look, I said ‘just start somewhere’. So he did, and found 2. One was from a lady whose house he had lived in with his last dog and addressed most of the homeowner’s concerns, so we went straight back to the office and handed them in. I also emailed our property manager reiterating that I knew SO’s last dog, how well behaved and beautiful natured he was, and that with our opposite schedules, we have a lot of time to devote to the dog. And also that we love this house and yard, and the last thing we want is to have our dog trash it. Shortly after, we got our answer!
Sooo happy and excited! I feel so privileged that she said yes, the homeowner has never allowed dogs at any other properties she owns. I look forward to showing her that we can be responsible dog owners and still keep her property in pristine condition!

Congrats! In our last rental we got special permission to get a puppy as well and she is the love of our lives. Be warned though she did wreck quite a few things although it was mainly our furniture not the actual home itself. The only thing we had to pay for was $400 to get the carpet replaced in one room (the room she stayed in while we were at work). No matter what we did we couldn’t get the urine smell to come out of the carpet from the times she had peed.
Yay! What kind of dog?

@Olive27: A malamute 😀 I said to SO that I definitely want to get in to the habit of crating it at night/when we have to go out for short periods from day 1. That means I don’t have to get up and anxiously survey the laundry each day to see what he has done. I definitely don’t want him chewing on things or peeing/pooping everywhere. At least with crating, you know the pup is safe from harm, and so is everything else in the room!
Now it’s just a matter of finding The One!

@Deejayelle: Congrats ! It is definately hard to find landlords that will allow Pets into their rentals. I have 2 dogs and have never had any trouble finding homes that will allow them. Crate training is a good a way to start until your dog is full house training! Good luck!

Woolite Heavy Traffic Area? carpet cleaner — I was living in my own home with new light beige carpet (not my choice) and my rottweiler pup came down with Parvo after his third innoculation against it. No stains and no smell remained and there was copious amounts of urine, feces, and vomit.
