If you’re a Great Dane owner, you already know how hard it is to find housing if you need to rent! If you’re in the Twin Cities, you’re in luck! I’ve compiled a list do Great Dane Friendly Apartments.
Weight restrictions? Danes are out. Breed restrictions? Usually Danes are out. Height restrictions? Yes, it’s actually a thing and Great Danes are out.
Are you looking to add a Great Dane to your home in the future and want to make sure that your rental will allow your new addition? Or are you looking to move from one rental to the next?
That’s what I’m here for.
As a renter myself, Cash and I have moved every single year of his life. From apartment back to my parents, from my parents to a townhome, and the cycle continues until my roomie bought a house and we’re currently renting from him- talk about a relief of not having to move!
I know first hand, how hard it is to find Great Dane friendly apartments in the cities. Either they are far too expensive because they are luxury, or they are super affordable but didn’t live up to my expensive taste. Why can’t I have nice things for cheap? Thats a different post I guess.
Anyways, here are some Dane Good apartments throughout the metro! All locations have been contacted and confirmed of their pet policy as of 4/14/2020.
Great Dane friendly apartments in Minneapolis!
Woodlands of Minnetonka
Fenced Dog Park
Hose in Garage for Car Wash/ Dog Was
Cash grew up here from age puppy to just over a year. We loved it! At that time the dog park wasn't open. We returned in 2017-2018 and they opened up a park! The staff LOVE dogs, loved having him as a Great Dane in their complex and the park was big enough for him to still run and romp.
They offer discount on your pet fee if you show proof that you adopted your dane! How cool?!
It's a more affordable option for rent, while still getting the luxury feel. Honestly, I found this to be the most affordable in the area.
Small Fenced Dog Park- I'm talkin, small.
Dog Wash- but also... small
Dogs welcome in common areas
This was a contender for us when lookin for an apartment in 2017. When I say beautiful, I mean it! This place was brand spankin new and gorgeous. Butttt it's pricey. You get what you pay for right!?
Amazing city view, their dog park is small but really all that's necessary for a small play date, just no playing fetch here with dogs the size of Danes. Four hops and they've cleared the area.
This place is another beauty, and expensive! They don't have the perks of a park or dog wash that I found either. Though their pool and other amenities seem to be way worth it. Let's be honest, if I could afford to live here, I would.
However, I'm a little hesitant to post that I'm certain it's Dane friendly. I called and they asked me if a Great Dane was an aggressive breed.... I don't think so, but I've seen it on many restriction lists in the past.
They also do have some other limits- the combined pets must weight under 120-- better have a petite dane!! They also said that the dog must be a non-aggressive breed but they couldn't confirm one way or the other if the Great Dane is restricted so I would make sure to get a clear answer here!
If you make the move, let me join you for a day in their amazing pool. I'll bring the whiskey!
Haven on Fairoak
Large Fenced Dog Park
My friends have 2 danes and they lived here! It's not the luxury apartment that you've always wanted but its a super affordable option just outside the city in Anoka. It's a quiet place, some trails and parks close by, and a huge park! (well compared to most apartment parks)
My friends have a dog aggressive dog that needed to be muzzled and because of the smaller complex they didn't run into others very often which was also a huge benefit to them.
If you are looking for an affordable option where you can still bring your dane, and feel safe, this is the ticket!
Ellipse on Excelsior
The Ellipse on Excelsior doesn't have the same park amenities but it's so close to the chain of lakes that it's not necessary!
This is another luxury apartment option that is more affordable than some but still on the spendy side.
I dont have particular reviews since I haven't been here, but I did check it out. The views are amazing!!
After calling a handful of places, I realized that Greystar Management Properties, and Bigos Management Properties are Great Dane Friendly, and Saturday Properties are not only Great Dane Friendly but they are 100% dog friendly if you can get your doggo to pass his CGC test! How cool is that? Helloooo pitty friends!
If you have any reviews or updates of these rentals, or want to share more, we are always excited and open to add more!
