I think if you first send photos of your dogs, and then you get dogs added to your rental insurance, then, also bring your dogs with you along with their Vet records, you would have better luck...especially in nicer places, where the owner has kept things up nicely, and/or boutique-style units. Deposits are higher because of many people before you which did not take care of their dogs, so even though your dogs are good...that is not the case with many owners of dogs...and repairs are very expensive because it is labor costs plus time which means lost rent between tenants...for example, it might take a few weeks to fix damage, so if place is $1000/month, that's $750 lost rent for 3 weeks, plus labor costs and material costs, plus time finding/ordering different materials, and so $400 deposit, for example, is not much if repairs do need to be done, and it needs to be a deposit with some bite to it, so that it means something & tenant wants it back...if it were $50 it would not cover a thing, plus too easy to walk away from. Owner's protect their assets by charging 1st/last/security/dog deposits to offset possible damages, because to evict a bad tenant can take up to 90-days also...and the only thing an apartment owner has to sell is use of the when someone squats, they are taking a TV from a TV Store...its just that people don't think in those would save up for deposits, and make sure you rent from a reputable owner...ask other tenants what they think too...Cheers!

The best way to avoid being scammed is by using a licensed realtor who has access to the multiple listing service in the particular area you are interested in. Since in most cases the owner pays commission to the realtor, you lose nothing by going with someone who is a sure thing. There are many legitimate real estate offices. You will be best served by proceeding in this manner.
Good luck.
