If you are lucky enough to have a dog in your condo- they do need exercise but a dog exercise pen might do well.

There are many people out there that just don’t realize that dogs and pets are a part of our life and our families.  Too bad for them – there’s something major missing in their lives. Most condo board members and management companies are just too lazy to create areas for pets and rules to abide by.  This has always been a major issue with me and condos. Anyway, back to the apartments that do allow dogs. You must remember that your dog still needs exercise even though  there are no areas designated for pets in that condo complex!  (There I go again- this really bugs me!)  Dogs do not have to be let loose in a back yard to run around. This kind of exercise is “excited” exercise and this should not be the only exercise that your dog receives. Take him on frequent long walks and buy a dog exercise pen to keep indoors if he is not too big. Put some toys in the pen that will keep your dog occupied. He will do fine in an apartment – that’s if your condo allows dogs.
