Default Barking Dogs Discourage Neighborhood Home Sales

Needless to say, we did not buy!

I love having the rules here in The Villages. I don't want to live next to a kennel nor a Ceramic Pink Flamingo Farm.
Same sort of this happened to us when searching for our last house before moving to The Villages. The agent's listing and location seemed perfect for our search criteria. We drove up to the house, got out of the car to view the home and we heard a dog barking on an adjacent lot. Poor thing chained up outside during the day.

Got back in the car & kept searching.

Thanks to those of you trying to help me and honestly answer my question. I didn't mean to imply that my dogs are left outside to bark and I do pick up their excrement. Neither of those would be appreciated by any neighbor; that goes without saying. I was asking about the strict number of dogs and if any of you who have lived here longer might know of any infractions and repurcussions; that is all

Very strict, but nobody polices it.

I think you will spare yourself a lot of possible heartache if you just enjoy the two you have.

You apparently know what your deed restrictions are,
but seem to be giving thought to being in violation.
Yes there are many dogs needing a loving home,
but my question is how many would be enough to rescue 3, 4 or ?
As far as the rule being changed, I don’t think that will happen.
Deed restriction violations are a complaint driven system, so if (anyone) complains you will have problems!

How do you decide which rules are OK for you to break?
This question also is for all of those that give suggestions for ways to skirt the rules.

IMO in closely built community 1 pet should be limit, unless you live on the horse farms.

In our group of villas the houses are so close,
and the dogs so many, that the streets become a virtual dog park!

That is exactly right.

Our neighbors have three dogs, but their rare barking does not bother me and they ALWAYS do their business in their yard. To my knowledge, the dogs have never set a paw in our yard. Therefore, I will not report them.

If the dogs were a problem, I would report them. I do not like dogs at all.

Is the excrement and urine ALWAYS on your property?
