What Factors were Considered?

The team took several factors into consideration when determining a ranking for dog lovers. First, they looked at the amount of single-family homes that offered pet-centric amenities, such as a dog run or doggy door. Then, they considered the total amount of pet services available in the city: grooming, boarding, veterinarians, dog walkers, etc. Next, they scoured the city for pet-friendly restaurants. After that, they checked rental listings that allowed dogs. Finally, they did a simple Google search for "dogs" and looked into state ownership rates. All data was totaled up and each metro was assigned a percentage. 

Why Reno Real Estate?

You'll find all breeds, both big and small, occupying 37.1% of the city's households. Events like the annual DogFest Walk 'n Roll (held just last month) help out worthwhile charities such as Canine Companions for Independence. Dozens of our local hotels, restaurants, and activities allow you to include Fido.

I missed the article; glad I ran across your blog.  Our small rural town does not meet the city definition, but we are certainly dog lovers/friendly.  Meeting people with dogs makes for an easy conversation starter.
