Finding affordable housing can be difficult, but for many dog owners, it is a nearly impossible task. Many have to choose between their beloved pets and sacrificing conveniences such as affordability and proximity to work. One developer in New Zealand has bought a brilliant solution to the problem. He plans to develop a small complex with about 18-20 housing apartments that occupancy would require a tenant to have a dog.he believes the concept would not only answer the demand to a growing market, but make for happier, longer term residency.
- A Danish developer is planning to build an 18-unit apartment complex on the Danish island of Zealand called Hundehuset (Doghouse) aimed exclusively at dog owners.
- On advice of the Danish Kennel Club, the apartments will feature extra-tough, claw-resistant flooring, as well as dog bathing areas.
- Potential tenets have to bring their dogs (which must weigh 45 kilograms/99 pounds or less) to meet some of their prospective human and canine neighbors before moving in.
