Is there a furry addition to your family named Bella or Buddy? What about a Charlie or Ruby? According to Rent.com.au, these are just a few of the most popular names for pets with a Pet Resume.
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.

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.

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.
