Looking for a family dog is no easy matter, especially when living in an environment in which dogs are difficult to look after. For instance, people who are renting might run into problems when dealing with landlords who enforce a not-so-strict policy regarding pets. While cats are ok, some people feel uncomfortable living next to someone who has a noisy, dirty dog, thus the ‘no dogs’ policy that some places enforce.
