When I was renting with a dog (a spaniel mix, but still, lots of appartments had no dog rules), I didn't even bother with apartments. Always found nice suites in private homes that were pet friendly. Or a privately owned home set up as three individual suites for renting out. A CGC will help for sure. I moved quite a few times when I had William, and sorta mentioning in the conversation that he was a therapy dog always changed the landlord's attitude if they were hesitant.

Also, don't wait to see ads that say "pets allowed", contact the landlord yourself, and ask if a dog is okay. I've talked to landlords who never even thought about pets either way, and hesitated for a moment, which gave me an opening to sell them on my perfect dog. It was a lot of work each time I moved, but I always found affordable places that worked for me where my dog was welcome.

Agree with KZoppa - that shouldn't even come into the equation. Most people have no idea what Schutzhund is, and equate bite-training with a vicious dog.

Focus on the positives: how friendly, responsive and well trained Eva is. That won't change whether you do bite training or not.

exactly. all they need to know if your dog is polite and friendly. Also, some complexs/private owners may be hestitant but also might be more inclined to say yes if they meet the dog themselves and see how nice the dog is. Keep in mind though that a lot of places wont rent to those with a dog under a year old just an FYI as i dont know how old your dog is. If you can find a private owner thats your best bet but look everywhere. You never know how lucky you can get. Also if you crate train, you can also let the landlord know that the dog is crate trained and not destructive. If you have letters of recommendation from previous landlords regarding your dog those can help too.
