These are Pawsitively the Best Cities for Dog Owners

Dogs are more than just pets – they’re family.

If you’re a dog parent, then you whole-heartedly agree with this phrase – and you try and provide the best possible care for your furry family member.

When it comes to where you live, your dog has become the number one priority. With three quarters of homebuyers passing up on the perfect home if it doesn’t meet their pets’ needs, location is definitely the top concern when choosing a home.

Luckily, Redfin and Rover joined forces to find exactly which cities were the best for dog owners.

They surveyed over 14,000 cities across the country to compile a list of the highest counts of walks, dog walkers and sitters, how often the keyword ‘dog’ appeared in online listing descriptions for sale, on whether properties were described as dog-friendly, and close to dog parks, etc.
