Immigration

Hello guys!

First of all I'm very happy to finally find a forum with a lot of usefull information for pet owners specific in CA.

My name is Raphael and I intend to immigrate to Canada by the end of this year. However I'm planning to take along with me my 120pounds rottweiler. He is very docial and well behaved. But I'm afraid that it will be impossible to find a house or apartament to rent due his size. Anyone of you guys had this experience and could help me on that matter.

Thank you guys, cya!

Welcome to the forum Raphael.

Do you have a preferred location that you want to move to? If you can indicate that information it would help members to advise you.

For instance, here in Ontario, there are laws against discrimination on pets in rental units. Some landlords have found ways to circumvent the bylaw.

The province of Ontario has a bylaw against owning a pit bull. There could be exemptions for someone re-locating from another province or out of country.

Depending on where you are anticipating moving to, it would be wise to check into bylaws regarding your particular animal.

Best of luck with your endeavours.

Hi and welcome!

you need someone to rent to you first....make that your first priority.
Please tell us which province you are talking about.

If it's a big dog but you can take it out to meet its exercise needs, the apartment size shouldn't be a big issue.

Good luck!

oh I forgot the province, sry about that. I intend to live in Toronto.

My dog is used to stay outside the house, I don't know if he could get used to live in an apartment. And how it works during the winter, he has to walk something as 2 hours per day, I don't know if it is possible during the winter.

Yes, I'm moving to Toronto, the company that I intend to work is located at York Region, so it could be something as 30 miles far at tops.

Yes, I've seen that, but there are not laws against rottweilers. There is just a fee for large dogs, something like this..
