Many landlords in L.A. don’t allow pets or have strict pet restrictions. Follow these tips to improve your chances of convincing a landlord to consider your pet.
-Bring your pet with you to the showing or bring a picture of your pet with you.
-Have references ready. A good reference would be a vet, dog walker, past neighbor, etc.
-Talk to the landlord and let him know about what kind of pet owner you are. Do you have dog walker regularly? Do your pets take flea medications? What kind of pet owner are you? etc.

-The point is, you want to prove to the landlord that you are a responsible pet owner.
