A new report by Zillow & Rover reveals that 72% of dog parents say they would be open to moving to a home that’s better suited for their dog’s needs.
72% of dog parents say it’s important to live in a city with lots of other dog owners, dog parks and pet-friendly rentals.

61% say their dog’s happiness and well-being inspired them to move.
With that in mind, the companies have come out a list of the Fastest Growing Dog-Friendly Cities in the U.S.
They came up with their results by comparing Rover’s database of pet profiles, with Zillow page views of pet-friendly single-family home rental listings.
Antioch, Tennessee, near Nashville tops the list, with the largest increase in Rover accounts, combined with a 62.2% increase in pet-friendly, single family rental units.
