Lets with Pets: What to include on a pet CV when renting

A few days ago I wrote about the launch of Dogs Trust's new microsite, Lets with Pets, which is an information resource and campaigning hub to encourage more landlords to accept tenants with pets.

The response was impressive; many people told us about their struggles, and sent the site link to their local council or community sites. We thank them heartily for their assistance in getting the message out there.

Pet CVs are an idea which we're really hoping will catch on. Much of the problem with letting is that the landlord (or, more commonly, letting agent) is a bit panicky about issues like furniture damage or noise complaints that may arise. Putting together a resume of your pet's health and behaviour record can go a long way towards putting fears at rest. So we thought we'd turn to one of the most famous dogs in the world, and imagine what would be on his CV. Presenting... Bo Obama!
