Our proprietary FIDO Score™ measures the level of risk a property manager may assume for housing a specific household pet and its owner. The FIDO Score ranges between 5-paw down (lowest risk) to 0-paw (highest risk) and is included with each Household Pet Profile we screen at PetScreening. (Note: Assistance animals do not receive a FIDO Score.)  

Several factors are weighed when calculating the FIDO Score, including, but not limited to:

  • Type of Animal

  • Breed

  • Age

  • Weight

  • Gender

  • Vaccination History

  • Behavioral Traits

  • Pet Owner's Care

After a Household Pet Profile is activated, we send all of the pet's information, exactly as the pet owner provided, to the housing provider along with the FIDO Score. 

How a housing provider applies the FIDO Score results to their pet policies is their decision and should be discussed directly with that housing provider.
