What Pet Parents Should Look for in a Scottsdale Golf Course Home

If you’re a pet parent looking to buy a home in Scottsdale, particularly one on a golf course, here’s what you need to know about finding the perfect place. 

What Pet Parents Should Look for in a Scottsdale Golf Course Home

As a pet parent and golf enthusiast, you need to know the main factors you should consider when you’re looking to buy a golf course home in Scottsdale. They include:

  • A pet friendly community
  • Adequate outdoor spaces
  • Pet amenities
  • Nearby pet services
  • Home layout and design

Here’s a closer look at each.

A Pet-Friendly Community

Every pet parent wants to live in a pet friendly community. One of the first things you’ll have to do is make sure the golf course community you’re interested in is pet friendly. Some communities have restrictions on the types, sizes and numbers of pets you can have, so you’ll need to check through your real estate agent whether you’ll be able to live with whatever restrictions are present in the area.

Adequate Outdoor Spaces

Dogs need plenty of space to run around and play, so if you have a four legged family member from the canine family, you should be looking for homes that have good sized yards. You also need to check whether there are walking trails where your dog will be welcome, as well as whether there are nearby parks trails for walks, exploration and recreation.

Pet Amenities

Inside your home, you’ll need to consider what amenities might make life more comfortable for your furry family members. Features like hard floors, built-in pet doors and dedicated pet washing stations can make a big difference for you and your pet. You should also make sure that your pet will be comfortable moving around your home. For example, senior animals sometimes have trouble navigating stairs, which may be something you need to consider.

Nearby Pet Services

Naturally, you’ll want to buy a home that’s near a number of pet services, such as veterinarians, pet supply stores, groomers and doggy daycare centers. You’ll find it’s much more convenient if these services are within a short drive of your new home. (Your dog asked us to let you know that they’d prefer living close to a dog park, too.)

Home Layout and Design

Your homes layout and design is important period consider it from your pets perspective. Are there a lot of stairs that could be difficult for older pets? Are there rooms that can be easily closed off to keep pets out of trouble? Having a little foresight can save you and your pets a lot of stress down the road.
