Since Melbourne’s pandemic-driven spike in pet ownership, ‘dog-friendly’ has become a must have item on property-hunters’ wish lists.
For many, being in walking distance to an off-leash park or beach is often as important as the quality of local schools in the area. While enclosed yards, built-in kennels and lots of lawn space are all highly desired features that today’s buyers are looking for.
