Selling for San Francisco: Dog Etiquette When Your Home Is on the Market

You’ve got your sights set on a condo in sunny San Francisco, but before you can move in, you’ve got to sell your current home. With Fido on board, this takes a little extra preparation, such as making sure he is out of the house during home showings by spending the day together or hiring help in the form of a dog walker or doggy day care. The infographic below will help you get your home showing-ready, and you’ll be California-bound before you know it.

Condo-living might mean a lack of green space, but San Francisco has plenty of dog-friendly fun waiting around every corner, making it one big backyard – just remember to clean up after your pooch to keep neighbors and locals happy. To start your move to San Francisco off right, treat your dog to some off-leash fun at Crissy Field Park and take in the mesmerizing views of the Golden Gate Bridge, or go for a hike in McLaren Park to discover an amazing view of the city. Afterwards, you can return to the city and explore the dog-friendly shops in Union Square and grab a bite to eat.
