Pet Resume

Pet Resume


A pet resume is a responsible pet owner's most powerful tool when applying for rental properties. Pet resumes provide an opportunity to present potential landlords and property managers with a summary of your animal's best qualities and examples of your responsibility as a pet owner. Pet  resumes may help you overcome any prejudices or previous negative experiences that a landlord may have about pets.

Your pet resume could include a description of characteristics of your pets that make them good neighbours, how you keep your pets free of infectious disease and parasites, and how you take care of wastes from your pets.
