When you have a name as original as Waunakee, it's easy to list yourself as the only "Waunakee in the world." In fact, that's exactly what this village near Madison, Wisconsin uses as a catch phrase! While there might only be one Waunakee, the city offers plenty of parks and picturesque scenes that you'll only get in this Midwestern state. Plus, Waunakee is right next to Madison and just a hop, skip and a jump away from Milwaukee to the south or Green Bay to the north.
Waunakee represents the type of village where life happens at a slower pace, people feel comfortable raising a family and everyone knows your name. Speaking of names, Waunakee joins many cities and towns in Wisconsin that derive from Native American words. Waunakee itself means "peaceful one," and there couldn't be a better word for a town that has barely over 12,000 residents (2010 U.S. Census stats). What the village lacks in modern amenities it more than makes up for with almost a dozen parks in just a few miles, a fishery and all the winter sports that you could ask for. See more
Finding an apartment in Waunakee 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.
