Certain pets do better in certain environments, as all animals are different and have their own needs. If you are a pet owner or wish to own a pet, you should be considering the animal when it comes to looking at Jacksonville apartments. Your animal is going to be a resident of your apartment just as much as you are, so it's best to look at apartments in Jacksonville that work for the both of you.

The animals allowed in Jacksonville apartments can vary, but generally pet approved apartments permit dogs, cats, aquariums, and birds. Of course, only some Jacksonville apartments allow all of these animals, while others are more limited. There can also be limitations based on the type of animal or its size. For example, some Jacksonville apartments cannot accommodate large dogs, while others can.

Now let's talk about the environmental needs of these animals, starting with dogs. Dogs are generally the most difficult, because they require space to move around. Dogs are very mobile, with swinging tails that can knock your lamp right off your nightstand. You definitely do not want to cram a dog into one of the smaller apartments in Jacksonville, so consider looking at bigger apartments like a studio apartment.

If you are going to be in a small apartment, then consider looking at Jacksonville apartments that have yards. This can be a great alternative, as your dog can exercise out back and rest in the apartment when it's done. Your animal will be far less likely to destroy things this way.

Cats are a little easier than dogs but still have certain requirements. Cats like to have high places to climb, so see if you can find Jacksonville apartments with a layout that might be able to provide this. In addition, you can install your own shelving for the cat, or buy a cat-tower to provide for this need.

I also recommend looking at Jacksonville apartments that have hardwood floors instead of carpet. Cats have a nasty habit of destroying carpet, even if you have a lot of scratching posts. Also make sure to watch your cats if you are living in an apartment that is furnished. The more damage your animal causes, the more you will be charged on moving out.

As for aquariums and birds, whichever of the apartments in Jacksonville you choose to live in won't really matter, as long as they are allowed. Just give them the attention they need, and keep their environment as clean as you would your own home. They deserve it just as much as you do.

All in all, whatever pet you decide to bring with you into Jacksonville apartments is up to you. I hope that you do consider your pet's environment as it will considerably increase both of your happiness.
