How to Be a Responsible Pet Owner When Living in a Condo

Pets can offer plenty of comfort and protection to their owners. However, when left to their own devices, they could end up being a nuisance to those around you. As a Midori Terraces condo owner and pet owner, it’s your duty to ensure that your pets are on their best behavior. 

This responsibility is particularly important when living in a condominium where you have to think of your neighbors’ needs. Of course, this isn’t always easy. If you need help knowing where to start, this handy guide will show you how to be a responsible pet owner when living in a condo. 

Housebreak Your Pet

Letting your pet relieve themselves wherever and whenever we want will spoil the beauty and cleanliness of both your Midori Terraces condo and the community grounds. For this reason, it’s important to teach your pet where and when to pass waste correctly, whether that means in a litter box or in your condo’s designated pet potty spot. 

Walk Your Dogs Regularly

Noisy, hyperactive dogs can be quite bothersome to neighbors. One way to calm them down is by routinely walking them at a regular hour every day. Not only will this help alleviate boredom and hyperactivity, but it’ll also do wonders for their mental and physical health. 

Spay or Neuter Your Pets

Spaying or neutering is the process of surgically removing a pet’s reproductive glands. You’ll need to do this once your pet is more than eight months old to maintain their health and well-being. Neutered male dogs become much calmer in disposition and lessens their habit of marking things with urine. Meanwhile, spaying and neutering your cat will reduce their need to leave your condo in search of a partner when they’re in heat. 

Research What Pets Are Allowed in the Condo

Certain condos only allow homeowners to keep specific types of pets. The most commonly allowed pets are dogs, cats, aquarium fish, small caged birds, and small domesticated animals like hamsters or rabbits. That said, it’s important to research what kind of pet your condo will allow you to take care of. In the case of dogs, it’s also crucial to ask which types of dog breeds are permitted in the residential property. 

Register Your Pet With the Condo’s Property Management Office (PMO)

One of the first things you need to do when purchasing a Midori Terraces condo is to register yourself as a homeowner with the condo’s PMO. You’ll also need to declare your pets on the biodata form. This is very important as managers and condo staff will need to identify your pet in case anything happens. 

Keep Vaccinations Up-To-Date

Vaccinating your pet will prevent them from catching illnesses that could be spread to other pets and even humans. Not only will you be taking care of your pet, but you’ll also be safeguarding the health of the community. Before you move, you’ll most likely be asked to present a vaccination certificate from a licensed veterinarian to the PMO, so don’t forget to secure one. 

Train Your Pet to Be Comfortable Around Unfamiliar Pets and People

Living in a condo means that you’ll have to use communal areas such as hallways, elevators, and open spaces. It’s important to provide your pet with ample opportunities to socialize with other pets and people. This will allow them to be more comfortable around unfamiliar pets and people that you’ll most likely come into contact with in the future. 

Don’t Leave Pets Unattended

Never keep your pet out of your sight or let them run loose. When walking around the condo grounds, you should always be holding your pet’s leash or carrying them if they’re unable to walk. You can also invest in strollers or carriers if you need a more convenient way to transport them. If you have to leave them alone when you go to school or work, make sure you’re leaving them with enough food, water, and toys to last them the day. Investing in a personal CCTV system will also allow you to keep a close eye on them while you’re out of the house. 


Responsible pet ownership keeps everyone happy. Keep these things in mind and you’re sure to enjoy condo living with your furry friends.
