271 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Port Orchard, WA
Once called Sidney, Port Orchard was chosen by the U.S. Navy for the installation of what is now the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. Anchors away!
Port Orchard, WA is a pleasant community with a population of just over 11,000 residents. The county seat of Kitsap County, this town is just thirteen miles west of Seattle, and connects to the big city by way of the Washington State Ferry system through Southworth. Are there apple trees here? Not the type you'll pick right off of trees (but there are plenty to be found in grocery stores, so don't fret); instead, the port's name refers to the strait separating Bainbridge Island and the Kitsap Peninsula.

Finding an apartment in Port Orchard 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.
