FAQ #2 – What About RENTING W/ PETS In Ecuador?

Renting with pets in Ecuador can be challenging. We brought our two rescue dogs with us when we moved abroad from the United States to Ecuador; we obviously couldn’t leave part of our family behind. However, after getting to Ecuador and looking for houses and apartments to rent, we encountered some difficulties because of our dogs.

Not all landlords want dogs or cats in their rental house or condo, especially large dogs, but many will change their mind after meeting you and your fur babies.

Pet Deposits are uncommon in Ecuador so you are not likely to be asked for one. There are no leash laws either, so you’ll often see dogs roaming freely and walking themselves. That’s one of the Things that Shocked Us About Ecuador.
