550 Abernathy is the perfect place for you and your furry friends. Our apartments in North Atlanta are happy to welcome you, along with your pets. Follow these tips to make the transition to our apartments an easy one.
#1 Keep a Routine
The most important part of having a pet in an apartment, especially a new one, is to keep them on a strict routine. Taking them for bathroom breaks or going on a walk at consistent times will help them get used to their new surroundings. If you’re worried about them going to the bathroom during the day but don’t have time to leave work, you can hire someone through Wag or Rover to come let them out and even spend a little bit of time with them.
Keeping your pet entertained while your way is important to keep them from getting potentially tearing things up during the day. Make sure they have plenty of toys, some food, and water so that they’ll have something to do while you’re away. If you crate your pets, you still might want to consider giving them a toy as a security item to keep their nerves at a low while you’re gone. A lot of pet owners also keep their televisions on during the day so that their pets don’t get distracted or scared by the noises outside.
Living in an apartment, your animals may not have the space that they need to get in their daily exercise. Taking them for a walk or run when you get home is a good way to ensure that they’re getting the exercise that they need. This is also a good way for you to remain active throughout the day. Enjoy the views of our scenic property, or take them to one of the nearby parks. This would also be a good time to look into the services offered by Wag and Rover.
#4 Quality Time
You are the most important person in your pet’s life so it’s important that you spend quality time with them. That extra 15 minutes playing with them when you get home will be the highlight of their day. Even if it’s just letting them roam around the apartment for a few extra minutes, or letting them snuggle up next to you on the couch, spending time with your pet will have significant effects on their behavior.
