Crate training, walk your dog, and either fix your beagle or get her a menstruation diaper. I've always been highly opposed to all the extra work having a dog in an apartment entails, and the poop pads, in all honesty, are one of the most disgusting things on the planet. Poop pads are useful only for lining your dog's kennel during early training days, or making your apartment look like a dive.
As far as the maintenance man is concerned, I'm sure you're aware that, as a volunteer, he wants to be there. If nothing else, he's probably doing it for a massive discount on his own apartment. So no, that's not illegal. As far as checking a room with a closed door is concerned, maintenance workers have access to any part of your apartment if they have reason to check. They aren't allowed to go through drawers and such, but they are allowed to go into any room to check for damage and to check air filters.
I walk my dogs when Im there. When Im not they’re potty trained to use the pads -but like I said she’s been on her period/been sick so she’s been missing and have had diarrhea on the pads. Though this morning there wasn’t any. I also have a menstration diaper for her. But that was dirty and I didn’t have time to clean it. Crate training wouldn’t work well with my beagle. She howls like crazy if she’s in a cage. My last apartment made me put a muzzle on her if she was in a cage cause she had 6 of my neighbors complain. Though I have toyed with the idea of bark softening/removal. The ethics of it have put me off, though.
Doesn’t it create liability on the apartments end though? The rest I guess you’re right.
