Pet Resume is the best way to show off your pet’s expert training, vaccinations and past references to improve your chance of application success. The feature for pet owners has come a long way. Today, more than 30,000 pets have a Pet Resume on Rent.com.au.

This week, we wanted to celebrate our furry (and scaly) friends. We dug into our database to determine which names are leading the pack.

Interestingly, there’s a degree of crossover in most popular names, with Bella as the most popular name for both dogs and cats. Buddy and Charlie were also in the top 10 is also in the top five cat names.

Our Pet Resume provides us with other insights:

  • Dogs are the favourite Pet (representing 68% of all the pets)
  • Cats were a distant second at 24%
  • The least common pet was a spider (just .004% thankfully)

The name Bella was a clear winner in the popularity stakes – taking out the number one ranking in Australia. Buddy and Charlie followed closely, with Max, Ruby and Missy also making the list.

When broken down by pet type, Bella wins the top spot for both cats and dogs, but results start to differ from there.

For rabbits, Bugs reigned supreme (followed by other unsurprising additions – Bunny, Bugsy and Benjamin, for example).

For lizards, Spike was the favourite. Popular names for fish were some of the most varied, despite a fairly common choice of ‘Fish’ still topping the rankings.

There are now 30,000 Pet Resumes and 135,000 Renter Resumes on Rent.com.au – a great result – but what is even more rewarding is the level of support that we are getting from our renter customers.

There is a serious side to Pet Resume. We find that with most of our listings, the landlord/agent does not specify whether pets will be accepted or not, they leave this open to their discretion. Pet Resume is a great tool to demonstrate responsible ownership.

Don’t forget: if you’re looking for a property that will house you and your furry friend, create a Pet Resume within your Renter Resume on Rent.com.au – designed specifically for pet owners like you. When you next sign into Rent.com.au, open your Renter Resume and show off your pet in the best light!

Once you add a Pet Resume to your Renter Resume on Rent.com.au, this information is shared with a prospective landlord / property manager to help them better understand who is applying for the rental property.
