DH and I are moving to a new place soon and, since we are having to rent, it is proving difficult to find landlords that will happily take on 2 great danes.
At the moment there are a couple of places we have seen that will accept 1 but not both
Basically, it looks like we will probably have to rehome our girl GD but I have no idea how to go about this. Who do I contact and would we have to take her to them or would they collect her?
Really hope we don't have to but it is looking more and more likely and I just want to make sure that I know what we need to do to find her somewhere she will be happy and well looked after if the time does come
Before you begin the rehoming, have you tried Petlets - a register for landlords who accept tenants with pets? See link here - seems a good place to try.
Talk again to agencies in the area to which you are moving - ways to make yourself more acceptable as a tenant include offering a larger deposit, pet insurance for any damage caused, and extra references.
When we moved into rented accommodation for a work related move for DH, we had three large greyhounds and faced a similar situation. Our solution was to advertise in the local papers for the area we were moving to in the Accommodation WANTED section - we were explicit about our dogs, but also mentioned that we were a professional non smoking quiet couple. To our amazement, this generated a wonderful assortment of property calls including a farmhouse we still dream about. We eventually ended up renting through a very nice agency but it isn't impossible.
If that still doesn't work, I can recommend Great Dane Care here - I know Liz and they are brilliant.
Don't give up! We moved house with 2 dogs. We are still in rented accommodation and now have 3 dogs and 8 birds of one sort or another. I know it would be hard to move again. Keep looking and please take up Scuttlebutter's ideas!
