As a magnificent man-made pond, Garner Lake was built in 1959 specifically for the now defunct Lakeland Amusement Park. Today, it's the centerpiece for the city of Lakeland and residents who flock to live there. This gives new meaning to "build it and they will come." The lake is a major appeal that covers about 235 acres with just over seven miles of shoreline.
To get to where it is now, Lakeland had to go through somewhat of an identity crisis: first being an amusement park and then a drag strip racing venue before finally settling into the rural wonderland of communities it is today. Residential real estate consists primarily of medium to large single-family homes, though there is some rental property. You might even stumble upon a mobile home or two. Lakeland is a good example of the finer side of rustic living: wooded seclusion with easy access to urban excitement. Only 12,430 people live there, packed like sardines in a 23.5 square mile area, per 2010 census data. See more
Finding an apartment in Lakeland 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.
