What security measures does Black Dog have in place?

-Black Dog has a state-of-the-art panoramic camera system installed with views of the entire complex. The cameras work well at night and can read license plates.

Snow Removal Responsibility?

-Black Dog contracts snow removal of the premises. Crews typically start within 24 hours of last snow fall and return periodically for blowing/drifting. Our snow removal consists of preparing the driving aisles for unit access as quickly as possible. The 1-2' in front of individual units is the responsibility of the tenant. Gutters have been installed to avoid ice build-up near door entries.
