5 DC Dog-Friendly Apartment Buildings

Having a pet in a big city can be tough, especially when living in an apartment.  Finding the right space for you that will also accommodate your furry friend can be a challenge. Dogs can be one of the more difficult animals to accommodate, as they tend to need more space. Luckily for all the DC dog lovers out there, apartment communities are becoming more and more accommodating. Dog Parks, Washing Stations, and other pet amenities are becoming a common trend in newer apartment buildings. Apartment buildings all throughout the District are catering to the dog and pet lovers, read on to learn about a few of our favorites DC dog-friendly apartment buildings.  

Park Chelsea at The Collective

Luxury, comfort, and convenience – Park Chelsea at The Collective offers all three, and more. Studio, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments are available at Park Chelsea. The apartment amenities are top of the line – granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, spacious rooms and closets, and access to all community amenities as well. At Park Chelsea, residents can enjoy the luxury rooftop pool, fitness center, yoga studio, game room, and more. We especially love the pet-friendly features that the community offers its residents. Residents can play with their furry friend on the Rooftop Dog Park and get them all cleaned up at the Dog Wash Station afterward. The entire apartment complex is pet-friendly, and Park Chelsea always takes great care of its pet residents.

2M Street

Located in the NoMa neighborhood, 2M Street is an apartment complex with luxurious apartments and state of the art amenities. 2M considers itself an urban oasis – living here is an experience, not just a place to rest your head. The apartments are beautiful and spacious and feature updated kitchens with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and plank flooring. The community features are equally impressive – courtyards, a swimming pool, fitness center, business center, and private theatre. 2M is entirely pet-friendly. Residents with furry friends have access to a private dog park, where they can mingle with the other pet owners in the building.  

The Shawmut

You will feel right at home at The Shawmut – these pet-friendly apartments are ideally located in Adams Morgan and combine classic style and modern convenience to create an elegant and comfortable place to call home.  We love The Shawmut for its location and its amenities.  Having Kalorama Park directly across the street and Meridian Hill Park just 6 blocks away, there’s plenty of green space for both you and your pup to enjoy. Residents can partake in all that Adams Morgan has to offer, or they can easily access the rest of the District. The community has studio, one, and two bedroom apartments available. The apartments feature high ceilings, spacious rooms, hardwood flooring, and updated kitchens. Having the ability to enjoy The Shawmut with your pet makes being a part of this community even more enjoyable.

The Swift’s beautiful apartments, luxurious amenities, and fantastic location allow residents to fully immerse and enjoy themselves in city life. The building offers studio, one, and two-bedroom apartments. The apartments are pet-friendly, spacious, and comfortable, while still maintaining a luxurious and stylish feel. Residents have access to a clubroom, fitness center, a rooftop with lounging areas, grills, and a fire pit. Whether you are simply coming and going from your apartment or lounging on the rooftop, any and all dogs and other pets are more than welcome.
