At Lakewood Manor Apartment Homes, we love pets! That’s why we’re happy to be a pet-friendly community that’s near dog parks for all our dog owners. There are so many benefits that come from keeping all kinds of pets. Keep reading to learn more about the pets we welcome, the nearby pet attractions, and the benefits of keeping a pet.

Enjoy a Pet That Fits Your Lifestyle

From small hamsters to dogs, we allow a variety of pets to fit the needs of you and your family. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • The weight limit for pets is 50 pounds for Lakewood Manor and 25 pounds for Lakewood Manor II.
  • Dogs and Cats are allowed.
  • We have breed restrictions due to size and behavior traits. Please call our leasing office for more information.
  • Any small animals (e.g., guinea pigs, birds, and reptiles) must be caged and kept in a sanitary condition.
  • Additional or other pets must be approved by management.

While outside of your apartment with your dog, we ask that you keep your dog on a leash. We also have Pet Waste Stations located throughout the property, making it easy to pick up after your pet!

Visit Dog Parks Nearby

If you’re a dog owner or you’d like to be, we have great news for you! We are near several awesome dog parks. To name a few, there’s Uptown Dog Park 10 minutes to the west of us, Home Run Dog Park 10 minutes to the east, and Wrigley Heights Dog Park 15 minutes to the southwest. All provide a great way for you and your dog to get some sunshine and stretch your legs.

Relax and Get Healthy!

Having a pet can help decrease stress and improve health. According to HelpGuide, “Playing with a dog or cat can elevate levels of serotonin and dopamine, which calm and relax.” And according to the CDC, pets “can increase opportunities to exercise, get outside, and socialize. Regular walking or playing with pets can decrease blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and triglyceride levels.”

As a pet-friendly apartment community, we are so glad that our residents can enjoy these wonderful benefits of pet ownership. Whether it’s listening to your canary whistling or pointing a laser for your cat to chase, we know that having an animal in your home can be a great way to increase your happiness.

With all the benefits that come from having an animal friend in the home, we are so glad to be a pet-friendly community! Reach out if you have any questions. We’re happy to talk about how we can help make your experience the best it can be.
