Condo Buildings in Chicago with Dog Allowances and Requirements

If you're in the market for a Chicago home, chances are that dog-lovers are on the hunt for a building that accommodates and welcomes furry friends.

I've contacted the realtors and management companies of 116 Chicago real estate buildings in the best Chicago neighborhoods to find those that will accommodate your pet. I've also noted any restrictions or fees associated with these pet-friendly buildings, creating a comprehensive list you won't find anywhere else. Please note: Because building requirements are always changing, it is important to still check with a management company to ensure your pet can be accommodated in the building. You can also email ssalnick@rubloff.com, and I will find any additional information not listed here.
