From dog-friendly parks to doggy day care and pet-friendly restaurants, Miami is a great place for pet owners. From Haulover Beach with its stretch of dog paradise to David T Kennedy Park which splits up its doggy areas into those best suited for small or large breeds and Tropical Park with its special doggie play areas, you and your best friend will find plenty to do together.
There’s no shortage of pet healthcare facilities either: Miami has the 5th largest number of veterinarians in the US per capita, according to WalletHub, and has the 4th largest number of pet oriented businesses. So you can be sure of picking up your pal’s favorite kibble or that rhinestone-encrusted leash for Fluffy!
As for residential arrangements, they’re as pet-friendly as the city, with many prime apartments offering pet-friendly facilities. Wondering where you and your furry friends can call home? We look at some pet-friendly apartments to rent in Miami for every taste and budget.
Allapattah Gardens — Allapattah — rents starting at $944 — Check availability
For an extremely reasonable rental, you can make yourself at home in this charmingly child- and pet-friendly low-rise complex in Allapattah offering spacious two- and three-bedroom apartments for pet-loving families. The focus is very family orientated with childcare facilities on site and with most amenities focused on domestic convenience. As for pets, they’re very welcome, but breed restrictions do apply, so you obviously won’t be able to keep a Great Dane here!
Miami Riverfront Residences — Grapeland Heights – rents starting at $1,365 — Check availability
If you’re looking for a super-cool address with all the mod cons, Riverfront Residences in Grapeland Heights could be for you. Overlooking the sweep of the river, it features a pool, a gym and a riverside walking or jogging trail. Apartments are one-bedroom units with roomy open plan living areas. As for the furry buddies, you’re allowed up to two pets, and the maximum size is 60 lbs. Shar-peis and Dalmatians weigh that, so you can bring a pretty hefty pooch. Or a really (REALLY) fat cat…

You can live in a pet-friendly environment at Stadium Tower and have the benefit of amenities such as a 24 hour gym and gorgeous outdoor entertainment areas with a view at your disposal.

Breeds with a reputation for aggression aren’t allowed, so you won’t have to worry about your pet (or your kids) having a nasty experience.
