The new generation prefers to live in a pet-friendly condo because it supports them as it helps out with depression, loneliness, and keeps you active while living in a big city such as Bangkok. Especially during the pandemic, where there was a lockdown and you had to live and work in your room.|Particularly when there was a lockdown during the epidemic and you had to live and work in your room. For instance, having a dog encouraged increased activity. For example, it was great when you had a dog you were more active. You went for walks with the sun at your face with your dog, it brought you social interaction with your neighbors, or meeting new people while you were at the common areas. Pets bring us joy that we would not want to find sometimes in our busy life.
So my question is: What if, instead of forcing dogs to fit our modern lives, we set about making modern life more hospitable to pets?
