After helping us get through the worst of the pandemic, don’t our pets deserve the best? Don’t they deserve a home that caters to their needs and gives them all they need to live a happy, healthy life?

Somerset Apartments in Montebello, California, not only understands but welcomes pets of all shapes and sizes to our pet-friendly community. Here, you’ll find amenities designed specifically for our four-legged residents, as well as more opportunities to socialize with other pets and pet owners, and even some benefits that may not come to mind. Let’s take a look! 

More Pet Amenities

Along with our one- and two-bedroom apartment options, Somerset offers comfortable paths for a quick walk with your pet, or our green, grassy on-site dog run located in the center of the complex for more active playtime. 

For a change of scenery, Somerset is located near some great dog parks in the Montebello, California area, including Whittier Dog Park, which is open from sunrise to sunset every day except Thursdays, when it opens at 11:00 a.m. for park maintenance. Fletcher Fetch Park is also nearby and offers plenty of space for your dog to run, jump, and play with other dogs in a safe and dedicated environment.

Improved Social Opportunities

Being part of a pet-friendly community in Montebello, California, you’re likely to run into other like-minded pet owners here at Somerset, helping not only you but also your pet to make new furry friends they can play with here at home. These relationships can be helpful if you ever need someone to take care of your pet while you’re on vacation or give them a much-needed bathroom break on a day you get stuck in traffic.

How you socialize your dog can vary by breed, personality, and even age. While a puppy may be excited to meet and play with new people and other animals, more adolescent or mature dogs may be less engaging with unfamiliar situations. However, if these interactions become part of your pet’s daily routine, they’re more likely to open up and get in on the fun.

Increased Safety and Security

Pet-friendly communities are—by their very nature—a deterrent for criminal behavior. That’s because studies have shown that while the presence of a pet may not stop a criminal outright, they are less likely to plan crimes in areas where there is a better likelihood of being caught, which can include protective pets that are more likely to bark at someone they don’t know. This is particularly true when a good pet parent has trained their dog, making out-of-character barking something that draws more attention.
