Thank you all for the wonderful and informative feedback ! We have friends who live in TV and we have visited numerous times. We have two dogs, 80lb and 45lb who hate the hot weather so we are looking at all options.

This forum rocks !!

3) utilize an invisible fence, which is allowed in all districts, as they are below ground.

I will note that most areas do not allow fences, as villagetinker has mentioned. Depending on the size of your dogs, they could be considered prey by the wildlife here, and should not be left outside alone. In some cases, they should not be in your yard without a leash. That’s because you’ll be able to pull them away from wildlife that tries to grab them.
Agree! Fence or not never leave your pet outside alone. Even large ones. In addition to predictors there are snakes, fire ants and poisonous frogs. Bobcats and coyotes can get over the villa walls. Alligators have been known to crawl under the gates.

Default Buy a Veranda

I f you want a fenced in yard the only way to get it with a reasonable amount of space for your dogs is a Veranda. We live in the Monarch Grove Verandas and virtually everyone has a dog. All here are dog friendly and pick up after their fur children.

You are a prime candidate for a villa. The walls and fences are perfect for dogs and chances are you will be surrounded by fellow dog lovers. Good luck with your search. Welcome to The Villages.

You will need to cover that as well.

You are allowed 2 dogs, even 3 when you arrive with them, once one passes then only 2.

I'm amazed by the different answers you got. "No where in TV can you have a fence" That's not true. "You can only have one dog" That's not true. "If you use a doggy door wild animals will come in." That could be true, I have one and it hasn't happened yet. Your biggest concern with a yard is, if you have bite size dogs, Hawks, Eagles, Bobcats, Owls, Coyotes and Panthers are roaming around looking for a snack. If you have big dogs, that can take a Coyote or Bobcat..... no worries. If you have bite size dogs you really do need to be out with them, when they are out. A Coyote vest is a good idea too.

Definitely can not install a fence. There are homes with fences like a courtyard villa and veranda homes that were built fenced.

In Bradford, there are some areas and lots that you can install a preapproved fence. When looking at homes with our dog, we were shown the fence that was approved and which homes were allowed to have them installed at a later date.
Good luck. Things change and people complain. When someone in your neighborhood sends an anonymous complaint rules change. Beware.

That too is questionable. If someone complains it could be a problem and brought before the CDD rules for your district.

When I factored in the hoa fees for many things I didn’t need or want and all the rules I bought a home for a bit more but no rules or hoa. You have a big decision so make sure you weigh all your options. Good luck.
We moved from Connecticut just under three years ago and I told hubby the only way he'd get me to live in Florida AT ALL was if it was in the Villages. Florida is a cesspool. The Villages at least has plenty to do, a beautiful environment, and the whole golf cart to everywhere thing makes it fun. The amenity fee is only $157/month, which is a lot less than the HOA fees everywhere else. With that $157/month I can choose which pool I want to go to, enjoy the archery range, play basketball, take the golf cart almost everywhere, take a dog to the dog park, shoot pool at the tables in any rec center that has them, and join any of over 3000 clubs - many of which are free and most under $10/year to join.

You won't get any of that at a community that has no amenity fee or HOA.

It wouldn't be a problem. If you bring more animals than are allowed, you're simply not allowed to replace the extra ones when they die. Some areas allow 2, some 1.

3 years with a doggie door, never had a problem in my courtyard villa. Perhaps you might if your yard isn’t enclosed. I do get bunnies in my yard, they dig under the fence, but none have ever hopped through my doggie door.
