First and foremost - thank you for the information. You definitely know your stuff.

I am going to require two months security deposit (plus 1st month rent paid prior to moving in) and an additional fee on top of the rent due to them having a dog.

Thanks again!

FYI----you can require whatever you want, as long as it fits inside your state's LL/T laws. And it also depends on what your competition is doing. If similar places are only requiring 1 months deposit, or no extra "pet rent", then you probably won't get any pets, but you also may not get hardly any prospective tenants even looking at your property, because they perceive you as a greedy LL. Learn your state's LL/T laws by heart, and know what your competition is before making any rash decisions.

    Gary - thank you for your advice. It seems that being "non-pet friendly" is hurting me right now.
    Thanks again for your response.
