Linda Allen, a professional graphic designer, embarked on a journey to start a new career as a media consultant in one of Thailand’s renowned online shopping portals. She is a proud owner of a 2-year-old Labrador Retriever. Little did she know about the property policies in most condominiums and apartments in Bangkok’s central business district (CBD) in relation to having pets in the desired buildings.

Upon research online, in various property sites, she discovered that most luxury homes had a strict “no pets allowed” policy. Those that did welcome dog owners had various deficits which meant she had to forgo certain basic amenities to satisfy her companionship. For example, the buildings were old and ill-maintained with no recreational facilities, had no proper outdoor surroundings to take a big dog out for regular walks, were distant from mass transit networks to commute to work etc. Such hurdles and frustration made her seek our pet friendly accommodation experts and professional services of Shambhala Realty Co., Ltd.

In Linda’s case it was quite challenging since it involved a 2-year-old, 28 kilogram Labrador Retriever. The common issues of finding appropriate living space for primarily large dog owners are as follows:

  • Majority of the buildings, apartments and condominiums alike, are pet unfriendly. Mainly not down to the owners themselves but ridiculous building policy.
  • The owners who do not wish to accommodate tenants with pets are usually concerned about fur everywhere, odor, scratches on expensive furniture etc.
  • The owners who do welcome pets usually prefer small pets such as cats, Chihuahuas, Shih Tzus, Dachshunds etc. When the owners were asked why, they mentioned that grumpy neighbors had complained in the past about barking noises coming from behind the door or keeping them up at night etc. Regardless of how well trained or disciplined the dog may be, owners do not want to take the chance.

These are usually the challenges pet owners face in the Big Mango. Even while you live here and are considering owning a cat or a dog, depending on your present building’s policy, you may have to consider relocation depending on how serious your love for the new furry friend is.

However, with the right guidance and an agent with the appropriate know-how, this task becomes less challenging. Pet owners traveling to Bangkok either have to make arrangements prior to their arrival or spend excessive time on the ground to find pet friendly residence in haste so as to transit their pet(s) as soon as possible.

It would seem strange to most that, as a matter of fact, almost all public parks in Bangkok do not permit entrance to dogs for walks and play. So don’t buy that Frisbee or tennis ball just yet unless you plan on heading to the beach.

In light of a recent influx of requests for pet friendly homes, I decided to pen together a comprehensive list of condominiums and apartments that are open to accommodate pets and put pet owners’ minds at ease.
