Australia’s first apartment dog park has been announced in Melbourne. The Gardenhill Project will feature a securely fenced ground floor off-lead area for dogs with seating, drinking facilities and a dog-cleaning station.
According to the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), there are over 33 million pets in Australia, with 39 per cent of households owning a dog. However, downsizing with pets to an apartment can be a challenge. Strata schemes have different rules regarding pet ownership, and the states and territories have different strata laws.
In episode 56 of the Downsize with Style podcast, I talk to Dr. Kersti Seksel, a Registered Veterinary Specialist in Animal Behaviour.
