I may know of the perfect 3 bedroom 2&1/2 bath Novato home with large fenced in yard, and a great dog door so the dogs can just let themselves out to sit on the deck and play in the yard on a sunny day.
How can I contact you to discuss? And when do you need the property? Furnished or Unfurnished?

Hi Ferrisr001, Of course it is! I will take it that you are looking to rent in the way you question is worded. So here's the deal. As a long time landlord I can attest to the difficulty of renting to a tenant with a large dog so here's what you do. Offer a dog damage deposit! It should be brought up as soon as you ask if the landlord will take a large dog.

You need to demonstrate that you have your dog under control at all times and his or her behavior is not destructive!
