What is the correct management of pets in condominiums and urbanizations?

For the lawyer specializing in Condominium Administration, José María Velasco, pets have become one of the three most common problems conflicting inside buildings and urbanizations, after expenses and noise, so he attended the virtual program “Let’s talk about condominiums” to provide a list of actions that help improve coexistence.

First, consider that a list of pets should be made to differentiate those that are suitable for living in an urbanization and those that are feasible to retain in a building, since some animals need freedom and you can’t go against their nature.

“We are not going to put a German shepherd in a single roomExcept for a long-haired German shepherd in an environment like this, which is so hot, we would have to have a smaller pet of about 15 kilos and with short hair,” he exemplified.

Then, you see fit to make a pet census in a suitable book that is totally controlled by the administration of the condominium and finally, generate a operating regulations that meets the following conditions:

1. identify the pet As for its owner, the health issue and the circumstance that it requires depending on the type of pet it is or the volume it has.

2. Chip pets, through a collar or other alternative, so that, in such a way, it can be easily located.

3. In urbanizations, it recommends that there be zoonification spaces; that is, a common place where pets can excrete and be distracted.

4. Penalties for owners or tenants who break the regulation.

Furthermore, it suggests that the pet is always on a leashthat the owner takes care of the needs of his pet with a bag at hand, either inside the condominium or in the surrounding streets where he walks.
