Renting with a small dog
I just got a great job offer in Brussels and am considering relocating.
Although it may seem trivial to many people, one of the things I have to consider is bringing my small, well-behaved dog along to Belgium with me.
She is well used to apartment life, and for sure I would hire a dog walker so that no accidents happen while I'm away at work.
Still, I am worried about renting an apartment with a dog in Brussels. I found an article here that states that rental contracts must allow pets: https://www.thebulletin.be/rental-contracts-flanders-must-now-allow-pets
However, I am worried that there is a big difference between what is written and how things really are in practice.
What would be my best approach to finding an apartment?
Do I just call any advertisement that I find fitting and plainly ask them what the situation is, or do I have a better shot in just contacting a rental agency and tell them what kind of an apartment I'm searching for and see if they have anything that fits me?
