"Low bridge, everybody down, Low bridge, 'cause we're comin' to a town, And you'll always know your neighbor, you'll always know your pal, If you've ever navigated on the Erie Canal." ("Erie Canal")
Located just south of Rochester in western New York, Brighton is known for its architectural beauty, and for the Erie Canal, which runs through the middle of town. More than 36,000 people are located in this suburban area, also noted for its amenities. Named for Brighton, England, it was settled in 1790, and it remained a farming community until Rochester grew up around it, eventually surrounding the town. Today, this upscale suburb packs a lot into its 15 square miles. A thriving business sector lets you work close to home and after a hard day's night, you can enjoy its six major park sites, the annual Brighton Arts Festival, the Farmers Markets or maybe a songfest about the Erie Canal.

Finding an apartment in Brighton 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.
