Best Pet for Your Home - Wright-Patt Realty

Pets bring unconditional love and joy into any household and are wonderful additions to any family. Choosing the right pet for your home is dependent on several factors: work-life balance, household, and preferred leisure activities. Our REALTORS® can help you decide which pets are best for these Beavercreek homes for sale.

  • The Young Professional
    The Young Professional is in her 20s or 30s. Her work hours are unpredictable; sometimes she comes home at five, and other times she works late. Her free time is active, but also flexible. She goes on runs and hikes and frequents cafes and bars.

    The Young Professional needs a pet that can be left alone for long periods of time. Her household is ideal for a cat or low-energy dog. Cats are low maintenance: All they need is a clean litterbox, an automatic feeder, and a water bowl, and they can be left alone all day. A smaller dog breed, such as a Pug or French Bulldog, would also easily fit into such a lifestyle.  
  • The Young Family
    The Young Family is just starting out. They have two children under the age of 10. They moved to the suburbs into a single-family home with front and back yards. Both parents work, but one has a more flexible job and drops the kids off, picks them up, and takes them to extracurricular activities.

    The Young Family needs a pet that is affectionate and protective. They can get a cat, like a Bengal, Siamese, or Ragdoll, that is affectionate and plays well with children. They can also get a Labrador Retriever or German Shephard, which are larger-breed dogs that are protective, active, and play well with children.

  • The Retiring Couple
    The Retiring Couple is downsizing their household. They sold off the big house and moved into a single-level home with a few spare bedrooms for guests. They don't travel or work as much anymore. They frequent cafes, bars, restaurants, parks, and other relaxing activities.

    They need pets that are welcome in these activities and provide companionship. Small breed dogs like Yorkies, Shih-Tzus, and Chihuahuas, are easily carried and taken along on many of these activities. They are also easier to take care of than larger dogs.

  • Adopting Rescue Animals
    If you want to adopt a rescue dog, it matches its personality to your home. Spend time at the shelter, get to know the animals, and then adopt the animal that you think will best fit into your lifestyle.

Adding a pet is a wonderful way to expand your family. Choosing the right pet or pets is about matching the personality of the pet with your lifestyle. Contact Wright-Patt Realty if you would like to ask how our agents choose their pets.
