Austin intentionally built up a reputation as one of the most pet-friendly cities in the country. In fact, businesses here love dogs more than people, and some even go to great lengths to design pet-friendly spaces. It would be difficult to find a restaurant patio or bar that doesn’t allow dogs, and the city’s numerous parks also make our four-legged friends feel right at home. In a canine-loving city such as Austin, apartment buildings typically allow pets, unlike many other places that lean the opposite direction. We compiled a list of the best pet-friendly apartments in Austin to make your search for a new home that much easier. 

Need an apartment for you and your furry best friend? We can help! AptAmigo’s apartment locators know all the best pet-friendly buildings in Austin. Contact us to start your free apartment search today.

They provide all of the space you need both inside the units and in the area surrounding the complex, which includes a spacious dog park and green areas throughout the neighborhood. Here, you’ll receive a level of privacy that you wouldn’t necessarily get in other neighborhoods. It will feel like you live in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, while still only being a short drive to Downtown. The Santal is located near the beautiful Barton Creek Wilderness Park, which will become your new favorite spot to walk your furry friend.
