287 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in West Dundee, IL
Despite what the name may imply, West Dundee isn't named after Crocodile Dundee (and thankfully, there aren't any crocs here either -- that we know of). Instead, West Dundee serves as a lovely neighborhood for residents living the midwestern life.
Yes, this place really is called "Dundee"--and that's the first thing that attracts people to the area. The city--or "village"--of West Dundee is a really small area with few new developments. Most of the town has a nostalgic feel and a lot of the buildings have retained their original 1800s-style architecture. West Dundee is situated in Dundee Township, which it shares reluctantly with East Dundee, and both villages are separated by Fox River. This village was founded back in 1834 by a gentleman called Jesse H, Newman. Around this time the area was known for brick manufacturing, but soon became the Dairy production center of the area in the 1870s. See more
Finding an apartment in West Dundee that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
