We already have 1 letter for Zeus, CGC certificate, he is a prescription ESA so he is all set.

|mycobraracr||I'm late to the party and didn't read all the post but I will add. I rent unfortunately. When I applied for the house, I gave them whatever training credentials my dogs had, a letter of recommendation from trainers I have worked with that not only spoke of what training they had but also their temperment, and let them meet the dogs. I had to pay a "pet deposit" and I have to pay an extra fee every month. My house is stupid expensive because of all this, but it is a house so.... I have been in this house for over a year now and haven't had any issues.|

With interest rates as low as they are, I would recommend buying your
own home. You can't sell rent receipts.
Good luck either way.

Just be honest and think positively. There will be a place, and you will find it by speaking openly about your needs. I just moved myself and my two surviving dogs about half a mile from some very hateful people in a certain neighborhood into a much nicer house owned by tried and true dog lovers. And it happened because when I went shopping I was totally open book about saying my dog had been targeted as aggressive, even though he never had a single bite on his record! I brought my "aggressive" dog along, and they were like "this dog, no way!". It just takes some phone calls and personal meetings and you will find the right owner who welcomes you with open arms if I can do it with an "aggressive" dog, you have no worries

|Liesje||^ agree on the job thing and property management. Our landlord did some sort of credit check on us before we were "approved". Also, this was the only property he owned and managed. He and his wife lived in it first, then started a family and needed more room but kept it as a rental. The property was actually for sale the entire 3.5 years we lived there but with the market as bad as it was here and the duplex having a HUGE yard no landlord wants to maintain, we never had a single showing and moved out on our own terms (bought a house). As far as I know, the landlords still own it and I've helped them find new renters.|

I'm not sure what you're waiting for!
If you have patience, (and sometimes $$$) you will be able to find a private rental and possibly agent that will work with you.

I rented for years. I had a shep x, a samoyd for a good bit of the time; then a solo dog; then added a shep; then two sheps but by then I was owning again, moved to Arkansas with two sheps and rented for a year (it wasn't easy even with reference from the vet, photos & their obedience certs unless I wanted to live in a bad neighborhood.) Then I bought a house & was much much happier.
It can be done. It helps to have an impressive job. Realtors often manage property and can be more flexible than a full-fleged property management firm.
The ease depends upon the rental market in your area.
