Today in Boston, like any day, there are a handful of dog friendly luxury condos and apartments for rent in Boston’s neighborhoods and downtown areas. Most of which are close to grassy areas for your dog when they need to go outside. Most of the units have weight restrictions, breed restrictions and extra fees for pets. Some of the available dog friendly units are through rental buildings others through real estate agents and property managers.
I have been building a dog friendly apartments directory on Fido Loves to help dog owners find a place to live in Boston with a dog or even a cat. They all range from $1,600 – $5,000 per month. A more realistic price range would be from just over $2,000 to $10,000+ per month.
You can expect to find apartments and condos with a square footage of 400-2,000 square feet, give or take. In neighborhoods like the South End, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, and etc. you can find garden units with a patio on ground level out the back of the unit.
Some units have parking included or available for rent nearby. Many people in Boston park on the street, which is tough on the cars and a complete pain on snow days when the streets are cleared of all cars for snow storms.
In Boston you will find everything from ragged and depressing to beautifully restored historical builds, brick and beam lofts or new luxury buildings. At the end of the day, your budget will dictate where you live.
The rental market for dog friendly apartments is very competitive. Do your research in advance so you know when you are looking at a good deal. Good deals on a dog friendly place to live in Boston only last for moments. It is not uncommon for units to rent while you are looking at it to someone who just looked at pictures online.
With all that said; Living with a dog in downtown Boston is much nicer than you would imagine. The waterfront has a number of grassy parks easily within walking distance, if not steps from your front door for those late night trips outside. The community of dog owners are a fantastic group of people to get to know while freezing to death late at night in the park with your dog.
