28 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Boardman, OH
"Here in northeast Ohio, back in 1803 / James and Dean Heaton found the ore that was linin' Yellow Creek / They built a blast furnace here along the shore / and they made cannonballs that helped the Union win the war." (-- Bruce Springsteen, "Youngstown" )
The busy, retail-dotted streets of Boardman were literally paved by the steel boom of nearby Youngstown. Wartime prosperity led to a big demand for easy access to modern shopping, dining, and urban conveniences, and enterprising developers like Edward DeBartolo, Sr. picked up the call. He opened one of the first strip malls in America, created a vast real estate empire, and brought the aptly named "Little Chicago" into national prominence. Today, Boardman is bustling and busy and seems, rather uncannily, to be much more populated than it actually is. See more
Finding an apartment in Boardman 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.
